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!

MAY 22: JOIN US FOR WORSHIP AT 11 AM! SERIES ON "ACTS" BEGINS! Throughout the book The Acts of the Apostles, Luke references "the deeds and words" of Jesus -- and not vice versa. Hence, the book's title: "Acts" -- not "Words". Our church's call matches Luke's purpose in Acts: "Love in Action: Our Church in Our Community." In that spirit, we begin to explore this Sunday the Spirit's deeds made known in the church's first century story -- that we might better understand our own story. Sunday's message: "Never Alone" -- based on Acts 2:37-47 and Acts 4:32-37. Join Us at Worship ... and for Christian Education at 9:45: "Questioning Capital Punishment" with Sr. Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking! ... See MoreSee Less

JOIN US SUNDAY (5/15) AT 11 AM FOR DAY OF PENTECOST WORSHIP! Per our American cult of the individual, Jesus is readily transmogrified on the two other great holy days of the Church year: Christmas Day -- with its Santa Claus. Easter Sunday -- with its Easter Bunny. What cultural symbol has Pentecost? None -- for Pentecost speaks in new tongues for us all. And in the many tongues, we find our communal soul. Now the hard work of Being Church begins. Communion will be celebrated ... and our Worship hour is rife with song! ... See MoreSee Less
