  • Parking Instructions (the Metro starts running at 7 AM on Sundays)
    – The closest parking is along Constitution Avenue, on the numbered streets off Constitution Avenue going north towards Virginia Avenue, on Parkway Drive along the Potomac River towards Route 66, and on Ohio Drive.
    – DO NOT park on Henry Bacon Drive or on Daniel French Drive unless you have a special (green) parking permit from The National Park Service or a handicap permit.
    – Give yourself a minimum of 15 minutes to walk from your parking space to the Lincoln Memorial.


Is 6:30 a little early for you?  There is another Easter worship service at Capital Church at 10:30am!
