The Ministry of Outreach:
Love in Action

With whom are we being called into a deeper relationship? Who are our brothers and sisters? What gifts might we share with one another? How might we learn from each other? How is it that outreach transforms us, as individuals, as a church, and as a local and global community? These are some of the questions that guide and inform us in the ministry of outreach.

Community Outreach Drives

Over the past year All Saints has supported Centro Hispano, Frederick County Senior Services, The Frederick Community Action Agency, Gale Recovery House, Heartly House, The Religious Coalition, SHIP, and Advocates for the Homeless. How are you called to participate?


Outreach for July

Special Challenge Camp July 21-25
Bishop Claggett Center 

A 5 day, 4 night program for high functioning adults with intellectual disabilities and is held at the Bishop Claggett Center, in Buckeystown, MD. This camp has been in operation since 1978 and this will be All Saints’ 20th year in supplying volunteers!

This year’s theme will connect with Claggett’s summer theme of “Outcasts and Underdogs.”  There are plenty of ways you can help out and No experience is necessary.  We will provide you with all the information you need to be part of this amazing experience.  Children under 14 may volunteer but must be accompanied by an adult.  Below is a brief outline of this year’s volunteering opportunities at camp:

Sunday:  Help set up, Arts & Crafts

Monday:  Chapel, Arts & Crafts

Tuesday:  Chapel, Arts & Crafts, Woodworking, Olympics

Wednesday:  Chapel, Dog Show, Arts & Crafts, Woodworking, Decorate for Dinner Dance

Involvement

If you sense a need, a longing in the community, pay attention. Ask yourself, “How is God calling me into relationship with others?” Perhaps you can be a bridge between All Saints and the broader community. Share your thoughts with others and invite them in. Much of outreach starts at a grassroots level. Outreach ministry leaders meet quarterly to share ideas and to plan next steps. All are welcome at these meetings, currently held on Zoom. Watch the weekly eblasts for specific dates and times.
