Definitely spell out one and sixteenth like you have it there.  No, don’t capitalize one.  I wouldn’t put the comma between street and NW.  I would definitely put NW instead of Northwest.  You don’t have to put extra spaces between anything.  And if you like, you can put the word “on” before Saturday, and the word “at” before the Church name so that it flows more like a sentence.  But that is just personal preference.

The official etiquette address stuff I’ve seen says don’t spell out District of Columbia. It’s the only exception to writing out states.

So I’d make it:

Church Name

1221 Sixteenth Street NW

Washington, D.C.

I agree with Miss Ribbons if you’re addressing an invitation’s envelope, that you don’t need to spell out D.C.  But I think for the invitation itself, District of Columbia looks better.  😛
