Ravensworth Baptist Church is an inclusive and welcoming Christian community where expressing the love of God to all people is central to our worship, study, and service.
"Love one another as I have loved you." — John 15:12
We are proud to be a part of the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists.

The Capital Pride Parade and Festival are June 11 & 12. This year as always, we will join the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists (AWAB) contingent in the Pride Parade on Saturday, June 11. This is a wonderful opportunity to witness to thousands that there are Baptist congregations that welcome LGBTQ persons, and their families and loved ones, into the life and fellowship of the church.
Things to know for Saturday:
- Bring bottled water, sunscreen, snacks, and fully charged mobile phone if you carry one.
- Arrive between 3:00 and 3:30 p.m. to help finish decorating the float.
- Parade steps off at 4:30 p.m. and is 1.5 miles long.
- We will have signs and RBC banner for you to carry.
Meeting place: the AWAB group is in Purple 100's. We will line up on 22nd St., NW, between N and P streets. See map here.
If you would like to car pool with someone, please e-mail Cathy Baskin no later than Thursday evening. Cathy will also send her mobile number so you can call if you need to find our group on Saturday.
