advent-christmas The Berwyn United Methodist Church community has wonderful seasonal events and festivals for families throughout the year.

Observe the most important week in human history at Berwyn UMC!

Our Sanctuary will be set up with Holy Week Stations that follow the Way of the Cross. These will serve as guides for your Holy Week Journey with Jesus. You can visit these prayer stations at any time during Holy Week.

• Pilgrimage Walk to Jerusalem.
Berwyn UMC is going on a virtual pilgrimage to Jerusalem during Lent. Keep track of every mile you walk during the week and send your weekly count to Stephanie Borelly each Saturday (e-mail: Johnborelly@comcast.net; text: 610-299-6254). You are challenged to find sponsors to raise money for the church as you walk. Collectively, we can walk the 5,782 miles from Berwyn to Jerusalem.

• Palm/Passion Sunday - April 9:
Special service celebrating Jesus' march into Jerusalem and his triumph on the cross with palms and music during our 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. worship services.

• Holy Thursday - April 13:
Tenebrae Service at 7:30 p.m. Tenebrae, Latin for "shadows" or "darkness," is a service distinctive for its gradual extinguishing of candles with the passion story and music. Our "Service of Darkness" will be interactive as always so that everyone can say they were there at the cross when Jesus died.

• Good Friday - April 14:
Come at any time during the day to explore our Prayer Stations representing the final week of Jesus' life. He gave himself over to death so we know God is with us even unto death. We are not alone.
