Portico 'Date Night' | 02.24.18

If you never look under the hood of your car, eventually it’ll break down and you’ll go nowhere. The same can be said of marriage. If you never take a close look ‘under the hood’ of your marriage, things will break down.

‘Date Night’ is a ministry designed to strengthen marriages. It is fun, interactive and provides an environment for working on the core areas where marriages traditionally struggle. 

This Date Night session will focus on roles and decision making in marriage.

Here’s how Date Night works. We will gather at the Portico Church Arlington Office from 6:00 - 7:30 pm on Saturday, February 24. During our time, we will engage one specific topic where marriages traditionally struggle (communication, money, sex, roles, etc.). At the end of the session, we will hand out homework to be completed together that evening. Our hope is that you will leave the office, go to dinner at one of the many restaurants within walking distance of the office, and finish your assignment.

Please REGISTER HERE to let us know you will be attending and don't forget to make reservations for your dinner!

Foundations | 03.23.18 - 03.24.18


FOUNDATIONS is an introduction to the community, theology, and values of Portico Church Arlington. It’s a snapshot of what it means to be a member on mission with us. If you are new, FOUNDATIONS is a great place to connect with others.


How it works…FOUNDATIONS will take place over two days, beginning with a Friday evening session over dinner from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The evening will be an opportunity to engage with others over good food and hear from our leaders about the vision, values, and mission of our church.

The Saturday session will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Portico Church Office in Clarendon (3240 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 200, Arlington, VA, 22201). The pastors and leaders of Portico will teach on how we live out the three identities we embody as disciples of Jesus: Worshippers, Family, and Missionaries. Attending both sessions serves as our pathway to membership. The Saturday session will include:

  • belonging to God: theology, beliefs and overview of the Gospel
  • belonging to each other: membership, community, service, and gifts
  • belonging on mission: local and global outreach

There will also be plenty of time for discussion.

For the Saturday session, a cost of $10 (per person) is required for materials.

If you would like to attend the Friday session or both, please SIGN UP HERE. Space is limited so register soon!

Please contact Pastor Nate Wagner with any additional questions.
