Randall Memorial United Methodist Church celebrates a century of ongoing vital ministry, serving residents in the nation's capital. We are one of more than 600 churches in this region that belong to the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church.
In June 1910 the Rev.Armstead Randall and his wife Rebecca, along with John H. Snowden, John and Cynthia Smith, Georgia Gross, and Eugene and Fannie Sparrow discussed the need for a Methodist Episcopal Church in their Deanwood community in Northeast Washington, DC. They decided to take action.
These concerned, visionary Methodists organized the Deanwood Methodist Episcopal Church with the help of more than a dozen other founding members. They raised enough funds to rent Moses Hall on Lane Place, N.E., and start a mission there. Their first worship service was held on July 2, 1911. After almost a year of preparation and sacrifice, these courageous ancestors erected their first church building on Browning Place, N.E., now 46th Street, N.E. They laid the cornerstone there in June 1912.
The Rev. Armstead Randall went home to Glory on June 29, 1916. Soon thereafter, the congregation renamed the church in his honor, Randall Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church. It later became Randall Memorial United Methodist Church, with the creation of the new United Methodist Church in 1968.
Today we have a growing, intergenerational congregation of about 150 members. Some have belonged to the church for a half-century, while others have joined recently. Our ministries involve all ages, from children and youth to senior adults.
We are proud of our heritage and excited about our future. Come join us, and be a part of our destiny and God's purpose for us at Randall!
