Sundown Towns

"Sundown towns" were towns that are intentionally all White. Contrary to popular belief, these were not just in the South. Learn about the widespread nature and current vestiges of this practice.


Senior Sunday in Worship

Sunday, June 19

As we approach the end of the School Year we want to honor and bless the graduating seniors of our congregation. If there is a graduating senior in your family, from either High School or College, we will be celebrating them during worship on June 19th. Please contact Sam Riedel if you would like your student to be raised in prayer.

Walk in the National Capital Pride Parade

Saturday, June 11 at 1 PM

Interested United Methodists will be walking together at the 2022 National Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, June 11. We do not have full details but will make them available as we receive them. If you wish to walk in the parade with fellow United Methodists, you can generally count on a 1PM arrival time and a 5PM wrap up. The parade will begin somewhere off of 15th Street NW just north of U Street NW and conclude somewhere near Church of the Pilgrim on 21st Street NW. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes/clothing (light-weight, breathable, etc.) and bring a bottle for water. Some canned water will be on hand in ice chests.
