Here at Leesburg United Methodist Church, we have a variety of events and worship services planned to celebrate throughout the season, culminating in a selection of beautiful services on Easter Sunday.  All are welcome; we hope you’ll come to join us for friendly, Christ-centered worship.  We're online-only this year, and we all need Jesus more than ever, so don't miss our first ever online Holy Week and Easter worship!

Palm Sunday, April 5

Livestream worship begins at 10 am.  Before then, decorate your door with palms or whatever greens/branch you may have, or print and color some paper palms to use.  Send picture of your palms to Rev. Heather or share on our Facebook page.

Maundy Thursday: April 9

This worship service marks the night of Jesus’s last supper with the disciples and we'll be celebrating with a "Love Feast".  Pastor Jim will lead via a Zoom meeting or we'll be making a liturgy document available to use on your own.  The Love Feast event page will be updated with the Zoom info and liturgy document as soon as we have it.

Good Friday: April 10

Join us for livestream worship at 7:30 pm as we remember the crucifixion of Jesus through a service of tenebrae - extinguishing candles as we consider a series of readings.

Easter Sunday: April 12

Christ is risen! Celebrate the resurrection with worship and song!

At sunrise, 6:30 am, join Pastor Jim on Facebook Live to celebrate the rising of the Son of God. 

Then, we invite you to step outside and sing "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" at 10 am.  We're inviting all of Leesburg to join us - so be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join in, too!  Visit the event page for links to song lyrics and tune.

After time for singing, we'll start our livestreamed worship in the sanctuary. Invite your family and friends that you can't see in person this year to watch the livestream and worship together! 

Join a Small Group

As we prepare for the Resurrection, now’s the perfect time to learn more about Jesus by joining a small group. These Bible studies meet on various days of the week, so there is sure to be one that fits your busy schedule!
