WHERE WE ARE LOCATED

Directions & Parking Info

GPS DIRECTIONS: 5061 Wilson Lane, to arrive at our Sanctuary! We are located at the corner of Wilson Lane and Clarendon Road, one block from Old Georgetown Road, in the heart of Bethesda, MD.
* * *
WORSHIP ENTRY: NOT at our Clarendon address, but at our Wilson Lane frontage (between Clarendon & Arlington) -- through either the bell tower or playground doors.
* * *
IMPORTANT PARKING NOTES: We suggest you plan your parking intentionally, as there is very limited around-the-block street parking space on Sunday mornings due to patrons of a major farmers market at Bethesda Elementary School (corner of Wilson & Arlington -- gray area in the map's center). If you come for Christian Education or early for Worship, we generally have free parking available in the 12-space church lot behind the brick Church House at 7611 Clarendon -- *please feel free to double-park*. An excellent freebie option otherwise: Cordell Ave. public garage two blocks away (across from Passage to India restaurant).
* * *
IF YOU COME TO US BY METRO, we are a convenient 1/2 mile stroll from the Bethesda Metro Station. See the map above -- the blue Metro "M" towards the lower right under the center map. Saunter down Old Georgetown Road to Wilson Lane & take a left; we're one block from there on the left.
* * *
OR you can walk less by catching, from the Bethesda Metro Station, Ride-On Bus No. 47 to the Old Georgetown Rd & Arlington Rd stop, and walk that one block down Wilson.
* * *

Come early or stay afterward and enjoy the farmers market at Bethesda Elementary!
