Current News at All Saints'

Stewardship—Starting soon, we will enjoy hearing from lay leaders as they share brief ministry moments. We are blessed to have many new faces and new energy here at All Saints' and we want to share some reflections on what goes on behind the scenes to bring our wonderful worship services and other ministries together. One of the most important ways to contribute is through gifts of treasure. It is not too late to make a 2017 pledge. Pledge materials can be found around the buildings and a form is on our website. Please see an usher, contact the office or email stewardship@allsaintsmd.org if you aren't sure how to make your pledge or if you have any questions.

Summer Worship Schedule—Our program year ends with our Pentecost celebration on June 4. We will begin our summer schedule on Trinity Sunday, June 11, with worship at 8am, 10am, and 6pm. In an effort to gather our whole community in celebration, we will spend the Sundays in June and August in the Historic Church and the Sundays of July and Labor Day weekend in the Great Hall. Using both of our worship spaces gives us an opportunity to practice hospitality and welcome each other into the space that has become our worship home. Wednesday 5:30pm Holy Eucharist and Thursday 8am Morning Prayer in the Chapel will continue as usual. Also beginning June 11, the 6pm service will include an invitation to gather at the Baker St. Bandshell for the summer concert series and a picnic dinner after worship.

Heritage Society Luncheon—The Heritage Society cordially invites All Saints' parishioners to a summer celebration brunch after worship at 11:30AM, June 11 in the Great Hall. We will honor current members of the Heritage Society, celebrate the estate gifts we have received in the last year, and share information for parishioners who want to learn more about remembering the church in your will and financial plans. By adding your name to the Heritage Society rolls, you will have the opportunity to ensure that All Saints’ continues to be a place of resurrection and renewal for generations to come. We are asking parishioners to bring your favorite egg dish, salad, or bacon/sausage dish to share. Sign-up sheet in the office or in church. Drinks, fruit, and pastries will be provided.
