church & Covid
The building is open but we also have virtual options
In keeping with the Wesleyan rule, "Do No Harm," as well as with the recommendations of our Re-Entry Task Force and the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the UMC, we have reopened the church for full use. Because many of our members are in the high risk category, we ask, but do not require, that visitors and members wear a mask and maintain social distancing. We also ask that if you are feeling under the weather, please consider joining us virtually. No matter where you are in the world or in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you here!
Sunday service may be attended at 10:00 am:
- in person at 12901 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20906
- here via our YouTube channel to either watch live or watch an archived service
- live via Zoom (because the meeting code occasionally changes, please email the communications team, the office, or Rev. James for the latest link)
Join us for a 15-20-minute prayer call beginning at noon. You may share your concerns or simply listen and hold space.
We offer a mix of live and recorded worship; join us at 10am for Zoom worship, or find recordings on our Home Page.
Mondays, Tuesdays, & Wednesdays
Zoom Bible study groups meet weekly; Choose from 10am or 7pm on Mondays); 7pm Tuesdays; or 8pm Wednesdays.
Our weekly Sing-In is a great opportunity to request favorite songs or hymns and meet over Zoom to sing along with our music director Justin.
Racial Justice Work
Committed to anti-racism and dismantling white supremacy, we hold monthly Courageous Conversations via Zoom and also have small groups working on advocacy and education.
We are neighbors helping neighbors. In this time of economic crisis, if you need emergency assistance or would like to help someone who needs a grocery delivery, let us know.
For longer-term help with monthly groceries, the nonprofit Manna is a great resource. Manna currently serves neighbors from our parking lot two days a week.
