Easter in Georgetown

The joy of Easter is always the surprising exclamation point following the somber and reflective season of Lent. It lifts our eyes to the glory of the resurrection, the joy of Christian hope, and the power of our God.

This year, as we have for the past 235 years, our church will celebrate the Lord’s resurrection with a traditional Presbyterian liturgy, exhilarating music, a rousing homily, and sundry Easter festivities.

Easter is a day set apart at the Georgetown Presbyterian Church. It’s the only day of the year where we host two services (9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.), our services feature brass and timpani, and our children enjoy an Easter egg hunt.

We hope you can join us for one of our two services, as well as for the fellowship time on the porch between the two services. All are welcome!

The Georgetown Presbyterian Church began in 1760 as a small group of worshipers and organized into a church in 1780 under the eminent Stephen Bloomer Balch, Revolutionary War soldier and pupil of religious leader John Witherspoon. It was the first Presbyterian Church in what was to become modern-day Washington, DC, and is the oldest DC church of any denomination with an unbroken ministry.
