Join Us at Our Intimate Easter Celebrations
Our Easter celebration begins Palm Sunday, April 13, with a “Parade of the Palms” at 10:10 a.m. from historic Perkins Chapel to Glenn Dale United Methodist Church before our 10:30 a.m. Palm Sunday worship service and Easter cantata, “He Lives.”
It continues Thursday, April 17, with an Agape meal of bread, fruit, and cheese at 6 p.m. followed by a Maundy Thursday service and communion at 7 p.m. On Friday, April 18, we will observe Good Friday with a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. prayer vigil at the church.
On Easter Sunday, April 20, we will have an Easter Egg hunt for our little ones at noon on the lawn next to the church. We will also have two services to rejoice and celebrate the resurrection:
- A sunrise service (about 6:30 a.m.) at Chapel in the Woods next to Glenn Dale United Methodist Church. Child care will not be provided, but children are welcome.
- A 10:30 a.m. traditional services in the main sanctuary. Children who attend can help ring the church bells and sit with their parents for the first part of the service. After the Children’s Moment at the steps of the alter, they can go with nursery volunteers to a classroom for Bible study and Easter crafts, followed by playtime in the nursery.
We hope you, your friends, and your family make Glenn Dale United Methodist Church your Easter destination.
