Rev. Dr. Camille Cook , Senior Pastor
The Georgetown Presbyterian Church is a church whose history reaches back over two centuries, but whose vision reaches forward into the future. Our metropolitan congregation spans generations and crosses the political aisle. Our community is one of generous hospitality, transformative mission, rigorous Christian education, and robust faith and worship.
Through weekly dinners for the hungry, many adult and children’s educational opportunities, the beautiful choir, the excellent preaching, the community at GPC strives to reflect Christ’s love and excellence in all we do.
As individuals we have a variety of theological positions at the church, but we strive to be one body united through service, worship, and relationship. We have always valued our multi-generational families that worship with us, and we are excited to welcome the many new younger individuals and families that are joining.
So whether a long-time Presbyterian or a newcomer to the faith, GPC is a place where you can get a good meal, a good sermon, a good education, and a chance to do some good. Here, we are always learning how to live as members of the body of Christ. Come and join us.

Georgetown Presbyterian Church welcomes all persons into our community to aid their spiritual growth and energize them for God’s service through inclusive fellowship, Christian education that nourishes faith in the hearts and minds of adults and children, meaningful worship that inspires, and focused mission that changes lives beyond the congregation.
what our congregation sees as its future
Georgetown Presbyterian Church aspires to be a robust, diverse, caring, spirit-filled congregation that enriches the lives of its members, and through them, our community, our nation’s capital, our nation, and the world by spreading the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
