Join us for a YouTube premiere of a Palm/Passion Sunday worship service, designed by the district superintendents of the Baltimore-Washington Conference. Watch on Sunday, April 5, at 11 a.m on the Baltimore-Washington Conference YouTube Channel or simply click on this link: Please share this with your congregation if you choose to join us for this conference worship experience. This worship service, which tells the biblical story of Christ's passion, would also be a great video to share during Holy Week.
