    We love kids at Catalyst Church.  Every service we provide a great program staffed by fantastic, fully vetted and loving volunteers.  The lessons are always Biblically-based and designed to enhance your child's understanding of Jesus and His great love for them. 

    The Catalyst Kids classrooms are fun, clean and safe for your children to enjoy.  

    You can check in your children 20 minutes before service starts at 9:50am.

  • Parking

    Here's what you need to know about parking when you come to Catalyst Church.

    There is a large parking lot at Sherman Elementary, on 22nd street between Island and K Streets. Come early and get your spot. Look for the parking signs.

    There is also plenty of street parking surrounding the school.  Street parking is FREE on Sundays.

  • Current Series

    Join us for a brand new series starting February 10th through the book of Philippians. Is it really possible to have everyday joy? Come and learn how God helped Paul experience joy in spite of trials, pain, strained relationships, persecution, and isolation.

What should I wear?

Come as you are. We want you to feel comfortable. We’re just excited you’re here. We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.


Where do my children go?

Catalyst Kids is the perfect place for your children infant through fifth grade to go while you attend service.  The check-in tent is conveniently located as soon as you walk in from the parking lot - you can't miss it.  


Am I expected to put money in the offering?

There are no expectations to give at all. We simply invite people who are blessed by the ministry of Catalyst to give as generously as possible to help us continue what we’re doing. If you would like to give online you can also do that. Just click on the "giving" link at the top of this page.


What will I experience when I walk in?

When you come, the first thing you will see is a parking lot with plenty of spaces and convenient access to the meeting area.  

Next you will see a welcome tent staffed by friendly people where families can quickly check in their kids for the Catalyst Kids Program. 

Next as you approach the meeting space you will find people congregating around great coffee, great music and light snacks. During the service you will experience quality, creative, and deeply meaningful music celebrating the love of Jesus. We use multimedia and the arts as much as possible to enhance the experience and message of God’s love. And our pastors preach passionate messages that are applicable to daily life.

Come on by, we think you'll like it!
