iConnect Event

Be part of something BIG!  After worship on September 21, we will host a high energy event for everyone in our community.  At this event you will be able to meet representatives from nearly every small group, iGroup, bible study, and ministry in our church, along with newcomers who are not already part of one of these.  We will provide food, beverages, and icebreakers so that everyone is comfortable.  Then we will allow you to explore commonalities with others to guide the connection process.  Rest assured that by attending this event there is a very high likelihood you will find a new group of great friends.

Our weekly worship time is at 11am, and usually wraps up around 12-12.15.  Please join us for this event directly after the service.  We encourage you to join our worship service, then head over to the gymnasium together.  If you prefer to attend only the iConnect event, please meet in our Welcome Hall area around noon, and head to the gym then.

For more information, email Stephen Taylor at stephen@1bc.org, and check out a video about the event here.

Go Go Symphony

Go Go Symphony Plays Regularly at the Church at Clarendon
The Church at Clarendon supports various community and arts initiatives.  One of our valued partners is the Go Go Symphony. Go Go music is a historic DC musical genre, and Arlington resident Liza Kravinsky has innovated Go Go with a fusion of classical orchestration, with results that have impressed both groups.  Last month Go Go Symphony opened for genre innovators Trouble Funk at the 930 Club, with rave reviews.  Later this month they will be playing with the Capital City Symphony at the Atlas Theater.  However, they will be performing a FREE show at the Church at Clarendon (1210 North Highland Street) on Wednesday February 12 at 7:30pm.
Go-go music is a sub genre of funk that has been extremely popular in the Washington, DC area since the 1970′s, especially with African Americans. Its main feature is live funky polyrhythm — endless amounts of it — with drums, congas, cowbells, timbales, rototoms, and tambourines. It also uses improvisation and audience call and response. The beat never stops during a show; one song just morphs into the next.
