Need Church Recommendation in NOVA/DC area with active 20/30/40 single congregation

Looking for a church in the NOVA/DC area, and specifically am looking for a Christian faith based church that is less focused/caters to families or equally caters to the single population and folks with lifestyles alternative to the family unit. Tired of feeling like an alien because I don't have a spouse and four children trailing me as I walk down the church aisle to my pew. If you know of any vibrant church congregations that have an active 20/30/40 something crowd composed of more than the usual married families but include an active single people population, please share the names of those churches and location. Thanks.

McLean Bible Church is a good recommendation - I've been there a couple times and always enjoyed myself. It is definitely on the more conservative end of things, though. If you're looking for a more liberal church (and obvs, if not, that's totally cool too) I recommend Foundry United Methodist Church or National City Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), both downtown in DC. I have also heard great things about Church of the Pilgrims, which is Presbyterian (PCUSA).

The National Community Church seems to fit your bill. One big, huge caveat--I've never actually been to the church; I don't even go to church. But they do sponsor several community events that I've attended, and they seem to have a lot of young singles. Something to try, perhaps.

Absolutely seconding Church of the Pilgrims, if you lean more to the progressive side, that is.
