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


Please be sure to mark your calendars and spread the word about upcoming worship opportunities at Berwyn United Methodist Church.

• 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 each Saturday. 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.

Collectively, we walked the 5,782 miles from Berwyn to Jerusalem last year, and we can do it again! You are challenged to find sponsors to support your walk. All funds collected will be donated to Heifer International.

• Palm/Passion Sunday - March 25:
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 - March 29:
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 - March 30:
Come at any time during the day for prayer and reflection. He gave himself over to death so we know God is with us even unto death. We are not alone.

• Saturday - April 15
Gloria Saturday Easter egg hunt.
Welcome, children of all ages and their families. Eggs represent the renewal of life. This event will begin with an egg hunt for children beginning at 10:00. Bring your own bag.

• Easter - Sunday April 1:
