Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Welcome to Union Wesley AME Zion Church. We are a dynamic church and ministry trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our membership and the North East Washington D.C. Community.
WHERE IN WASHINGTON ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located at 1860 Michigan Avenue NE
, near the Washington, D.C./Maryland state line. We are approximately 15 minutes from central Washington, D.C. - the White House and US Capitol building - at the corner of Michigan and Eastern avenues (North East).
WHAT IS YOUR WORSHIP LIKE?
Our worship service is born out of the Methodist tradition, but Praise and Worship is an integral part of our spirit filled worship experience. We have a dynamic music ministry and enjoy worshiping with instruments and the liturgical dance. We are a family of believers who enjoy each other and enjoy praising God.
FELLOWSHIP (after worship)
We enjoy continuing our worship experience thorough fellowship with one another after church Service is over. You are welcomed to stay and join us for dinner in our church social hall after the service has ended. This provides an opportunity to see our church as a family enjoying each other’s company and having fun. This will also provide an opportunity for you to speak with the Pastor and other Ministerial staff or church members.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We want all worshipers to be comfortable and feel welcomed. Feel free to worship in casual attire (jeans and shirt), business casual (slacks and dress shirt) or business/traditional dress (suit and tie, etc.).
WHAT PROGRAMS DO YOU HAVE FOR CHILDREN DURING WORSHIP SERVICES?
We have a very active children’s church ministry each Sunday during the regular morning worship service. Your children, (2 years old and above), will be cared for by a qualified staff of volunteer parents, receive an age appropriate Christian learning experience as well as snacks. Younger children are welcomed too as long as they are accompanied by one parent.
WHAT IS MEANT BY AME ZION (African Methodist Episcopal Zion)?
We are called African
because our forefathers, (descendents of Slaves brought to this Country and Freedmen), refused to relinquish their heritage. We are called Methodist
because we are born of the Methodist tradition and have a method to our organization. We are called Episcopal
because we have a system of governance. And we are called Zion
to distinguish us from other Methodist bodies (e.g. United Methodist Church, African Methodist Episcopal Church, and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, etc.). We are not
exclusively African American in church membership or with our worshipers. We embrace multiculturalism and enjoy visitors and have members from all over the World. We are open to all
who love God and want to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
I’D LIKE TO TALK MORE ABOUT WHAT I HEARD DURING SERVICE. WHO CAN I SPEAK WITH? CAN SOMEONE PRAY WITH ME?
We have a dedicated Ministerial staff that will be happy to speak with you about your worship experience, offer consultation and pray with you. Also, you are invited to provide feedback on your worship experience with us through our website (contact us page). Please browse through our website to learn more about us. You can also listen online to past messages given.
