Pledge Now

2021 Stewardship Campaign: Doing What Love Requires

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reminds us that God is Love, so we must ask ourselves and our communities “What would love do?” As we answer this question, we focus on the ways we can respond in love to the needs around us. “Doing What Love Requires” includes the continued financial support of All Saints’, pledging our work, wisdom, and wealth. Prayerfully consider your financial pledge so that we can continue to embody the resurrection story and make a positive difference in our community and beyond. We ask that you submit your pledge by November 15, 2020. Click our button to make your pledge and Do What Love Requires.

Take a look at this week's announcements from All Saints':

Hymnology 101

Join me on October 21st and 28th, November 4th and 11th from 7-8pm for "Hymnology 101." We will learn and discuss various aspects of the hymns we sing; the stories behind the hymn, about the life of the composer, scriptures that are highlighted by the hymns and much more! These sessions will be one hour long and offered via zoom. I ask that you sign up so I have an idea of who will be attending and how to be in contact with you. I look forward to our first study of hymns! Looking ahead, an offering will occur during Advent giving us the opportunity to explore some of our favorite carols of the season!
—Adam Koch, Music Director

Help with meals for the Religious Coalition!

We have another opportunity to help our neighbors in Frederick! This new opportunity is being sponsored jointly by the Religious Coalition, Steadfast (a new non-profit serving young adults) and the St. Vincent DePaul Society. Getting Ahead is an 8 week program providing basic skills and connections to adults to help them gain stability and economic security. Howard County, MD and places throughout the US use this innovative program to help area adults. When I met with the Religious Coalition recently, we asked their leadership what their greatest need was, and a meals ministry was it! I am requesting various ministries to coordinate amongst their teams to provide one meal on a Thursday evening, between now and Thanksgiving.
— Jill Browning, Vestry

Learning Hub at All Saints'

The church clergy, staff and congregation have partnered with Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County (more commonly known as "SHIP") to provide space and resource support in helping Frederick County Public high school students experiencing homelessness with comfortable space to access reliable Internet access as the young people conduct their online studies during COVID-19. Students are being recruited primarily from the Frederick and Gov. Thomas Johnson high school districts given the proximity to All Saints'. The "Hub" is expected to run through January 26th and the conclusion of the school system's first semester.

Community Conversations about Racism: Hosted by Asbury UM and All Saints'

Join us Thursday nights at 7pm for our weekly zoom conversation about our local experience of racism. Through sharing our stories in this brave space of trust and love we are discovering relationships that can heal this world. We have returned to our original format, watching a video clip together or reflecting on a text and then spending the rest of the time in conversation about the material and a question it raises for us.

See you on zoom!

Zoom: Asbury/All Saints' Conversation

 

Keeping the Body Healthy and Connected here at All Saints'

In response to directives and guidance from Governor Hogan and Bishop Sutton, and in conversation with our staff and leadership, we have made several changes to our operations.

Learn more on our Staying Connected page

At All Saints’, public worship will cease beginning Sunday, March 15, 2020, including Sunday and Wednesday weekly worship. We will increase our virtual offerings during this time, including Morning and Evening Prayer, Compline, Healing Prayer, and Sunday worship.

In addition to our spiritual offerings, the National Cathedral will live-stream worship each Sunday at 11:15 am.

To ensure the safety of our community and do our part to "flatten the curve," our staff is working remotely for the foreseeable future. For immediate assistance, email our staff or reach out via cell, and they will do their best to assist you remotely. We will have inconsistent access to our physical mail, so please do as much correspondence as you can through email. If you have a pastoral emergency, please call the church office for automated instructions to reach the clergy-on-call.

We have also chosen to suspend all church events effective March 13, 2020. This includes all in-person meetings, both on- and off-site. We encourage our leaders to get creative, and use zoom, chat, phone, and video meetings to their advantage. Now more than ever, this is a time for us to stay connected even as we increase physical distance. If you are part of a small group or ministry, we encourage you to check in with one another.

Our building will be closed to all outside groups and rentals beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. We are giving our groups an opportunity over the weekend to connect with their participants. This decision does not come lightly, and we are striving to balance the needs of the individual groups that have found a home at All Saints’ with the needs of our wider global community.

May God’s loving embrace quell our anxiety and inspire us to care for one another, and all those in need in our wider community.

Yours in God’s peace,
Mtr. Adrien & Rev. Jess
