WORSHIP SERVICE TIMES & INFO

At the heart of our Christian faith community is the renewing and transforming practice of worship and prayer. We follow the Episcopal worship tradition, using the Book of Common Prayer as a guide for our annual, seasonal, weekly and daily worship habits. In the context of a worshipping community we offer the sacraments of communion and baptism. We surround people in worship for the life affirming sacramental acts of confirmation, confession, ordination, marriage, and burial.

We’ve got a lot coming up this summer!  Here’s a quick run-down of dates to help you keep it all straight:

  • August 15: Student & Teacher Blessing during 10am worship
  • August 22:  Renewal of Vows.  We’ve got some ASEC couples with big anniversaries this year, and they’ve asked to renew their vows.  Celebrate with us during the 10am service.
  • August 29: Deacon Kathleen’s Last Sunday, Baptisms
  • Sept 5: Labor Day Weekend
  • Sept 12: Welcome Forward! Bash
  • Sept 19: Canon McCloud joins us as guest preacher
  • Oct 3: Frederick Pride, Mtr Adrien Returns from sabbatical

Where we’ll worship this Summer/
No pop-up church in August

This Summer’s 10am worship service will continue in the Great Hall through August. 15. Then, we’ll switch over to the Historic Church August 22-through our “Welcome Forward” Sunday on Sept 12. Our Fall schedule will begin Sept. 19.

We’re also going to take a break from Pop-up Church in August– it’s been hot, there’s vacation, and school will start soon (can you believe it?!). If you’d like to see pop-up church resume in the fall, let us know!

Regathering for In-Person Worship

  • We will be in the Great Hall through August 15.
  • Then we will switch to worship in the Historic Church, August 22 to Sept 12:
  • Pop-Up Church @ Baker Park, 4pm is taking a break in the month of August

With the rising rates of Covid-19 infections in Frederick and in the State, primarily related to the Delta Variant, the Diocese has moved back into the Yellow Phase.

For us it means that we will go back to the requirement to wear a mask when you are inside the buildings. During the Services everyone in the Congregation will remained masked. The Clergy, Lectors, and Choir may take off their masks as they feel appropriate, with social distancing, to lead Worship. Additional instructions regarding Communion will be given during the Service. We do this out of an abundance of caution for those in our Congregation that are vulnerable.

We do know that for our Children and Youth ministries we will parallel the FCPS guidelines, which were updated on July 28.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Rev. Jess (jholthus@allsaintsmd.org), Mark Gibson (mgibson@comsearch.com) or Eric Percy (ehpercy@aol.com) to get involved.

Contemporary & Ancient

Forms of Prayer and Worship

At All Saints’, we offer contemporary and ancient forms of prayer and worship. We know that God speaks to us in the spiritual language of our ancestors as well as the fresh expressions of our children.

God is always speaking. Worship and prayer teach us to listen and hold open our hearts that we might resonate with God’s voice.

PERSONAL & COMMUNITY PRAYER

Learn more about opportunities to participate in personal and community prayer, including the Daily Office, Centering Prayer, our Prayer Labyrinth, and ways to Make a Prayer Request.

PERSONAL & COMMUNITY PRAYER

Human beings are made to live in cycles of work and rest, labor and renewal — we are sent out and then God gathers us back in.

These ancient practices were explored and developed by early Christian monastic communities. They recognized the need for a prayer rhythm and created a Rule of Life to serve the whole community. Today, we invite you to join us and develop your own rule of life that includes, daily, weekly, and seasonal practices to nourish your soul and equip you to serve in the world.
