Services are at 8:30am (with Communion) and 11am Sunday School at 9:30. There is a fellowship hour after the 11am service where it is easy to meet people and become part of this friendly community.

We found the history at The Meeting House, as with most of Alexandria so interesting. The burial ground contains the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier which is worth a visit in itself. The burial ground was used prior to 1809 and although only a...More

We went off the beaten path to find this charming little piece of history. We didn't make it inside but spent some time in the little cemetery behind the church. We paid our respects at the tomb of the unknown revolutionary soldier and pondered the...More
