The Oakton congregation was established in 1903 by members of the Manassas Church of the Brethren who were living in Fairfax County. The Oakton Church of the Brethren in turn founded the Dranesville Church in Herndon.
Our congregation has approximately 150 members and an average worship attendance of 90. We have a balance of ages and generations with a growing group of families with young children. Our church facility contains an elevator and bathrooms accessible for persons with disabilities.
The Oakton Church of the Brethren is one of eight congregations in the greater Washington DC area. The other Brethren congregations are located in Washington DC, Arlington, Woodbridge, Dranesville, Kensington, University Park, and Gaithersburg. Along with these congregations Oakton is part of larger group of 63 congregations in the region that make up the Mid-Atlantic District. Our District Executive is Gene Hagenberger.
