What's Ahead at Hughes UMC

HOLY WEEK 2019. We invited you to join us at any or all of our Holy Week events.


Holy Thursday, April 18: We begin with a Soup and Salad Supper at 6:30 in the Social Hall, followed at 7 p.m. by a Seder observance, concluding with Holy Communion, so we can experience the connections between Passover and the Lord’s Supper.
Good Friday, April 19:
Noon – 1:00 p.m. – The Sanctuary will be open for personal meditation and prayer with visual presentations and prayer stations
7:30 p.m. – Worship at Silver Spring UMC, 8700 Georgia Ave., featuring a performance of the Mozart Requiem, with orchestra. Several area choirs and congregations join together for this special service.
Easter Sunday, April 21: One bi-lingual, multicultural worship celebration at 10:30 a.m. A concert of joyous music for brass and organ precedes the service, beginning at 10:15 a.m.
