Holy Week activities 

The community is welcome to join us at the following activities and worship services during Holy Week, through Sunday, April 21. All services take place in the sanctuary, 600 Burmont Road, Drexel Hill, unless otherwise noted. 

Wednesday, April 17, 7:30 p.m. Healing service. There is a place to share pain and discomfort. There is a place to believe in hope. Join us for our Holy Wednesday Service of Healing and Wholeness. We will gather in the Chancel. At a service of healing, we bring to God our own frailty and brokenness felt not just in physical illness, but in guilt, anxiety, and all the burdens which weigh us down.  We also bring our concerns for others and for the world. Above all, we come to the God who knows our needs before we ask, and whose love revealed in Jesus Christ is stronger than suffering and death.

Holy Thursday, April 18. 7:30 p.m. The Drexel Hill Church community will join with New Life Methodist United Methodist Church for services at  2600 Bond Ave. in Drexel Hill. Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday, marks the occasion of the Last Supper and the foot washing of Jesus. It begins the Easter Triduum, the period commemorating the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. 

Good Friday, April 19, noon. During this somber and meditative service, we will meditate on the Cross in the Chancel of the Sanctuary. A reading of the Passion from the gospels will take place, tracing the final period of Jesus' life from his entry into Jerusalem, ending with his crucifixion and death on Good Friday.

 

Easter Sunday, April 21, 10 a.m.  Our church will celebrate Jesus resurrection with trumpets, flowers and singing. Pastor Atkinson will preach the Good News with his sermon, "Easter Day." An Easter egg hunt will take place for the children after services in the court yard. 

RSC luncheon  

The next RSC Community Luncheon will be Saturday, April 27, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Rainbow Room. You can enter from the School Lane side of the church across from the church parking lot. The Project Reach Serve Care program provides a free hot catered lunch and friendly fellowship to anyone in the community who wishes to attend. 

Easter baskets 

   The Outreach Committee thanks everyone involved with our Easter Bags of Food for families in need in the Upper Darby School District. Twenty-two bags contained fresh produce, a grocery gift certificate, and Easter candy. They were were picked up last week by school district social workers for delivery in time to help our local families have a happy Easter. 

AIDS Benefit Concert 

   The church choir hosts its annual AIDS Benefit Concert Saturday, May 4, 7 p.m., in the church sanctuary, 600 Burmont Road in Drexel Hill. This year's theme is "Ray of Hope" as we focus on the medical advances made in the treatment of HIV AIDS while continuing to offer support to those living with the disease that still need our help. A local AIDS charity will receive any free will offerings from the concert. The concert will be a mix of choral works, quartets, duets, soloists and instrumentalists. The public is most welcome to attend. 

Food Bank Volunteers

The Upper Darby Food Bank is located at 7766 Wayne Avenue in Upper Darby and serves those residents of the Upper Darby and Drexel Hill area who are in need of some additional food to help alleviate hunger.  The hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Drexel Hill United Methodist Church provides a volunteer to help distribute food each Monday throughout the year.  At this time, six volunteers provide coverage on a rotational basis. If you would like to be one of the volunteers, learn more, or perhaps spend a few hours with one of us on a Monday to see if you have any interest in volunteering, notify the church office and we’ll arrange something. Additionally, donations for the food bank are always needed and can be placed in the narthex in the alcove near the door leading toward the gym.
