Current News at All Saints'

Journey with us: Make your pledge today—We currently have a budget shortfall of about $71,000 for the year. If you've pledged, thank you! If you haven't, it's not too late to submit a pledge for 2017. Pledge materials can be found in the worship spaces, on our website, and in the office. And anytime is a great time to make a special gift to All Saints'. So much good happens in our community because of the work and inspiration of All Saints'. Please help us continue to meet our financial obligations this year. For more information, please refer to the article on Page 4 of the June issue of Saints Alive, which is available around the buildings or on our website – allsaintsmd.org. While you’re there, please go to Donate, where you can make an online donation, arrange for automatic withdrawals from your bank account, and download a pledge form.

Newcomer's Brunch—Come and join us for a Newcomer's Brunch! Sunday, July 9 in the Parish Hall, we want to get to know our newcomers, and for them to meet our clergy, lay-leaders, and other members of the parish. If you're new to our family, or would like to help welcome those who are, RSVP to the church office (301-663-5625 or churchoffice@allsaintsmd.org).

All Saints' Book Sale—In recent years St. Mary's Chapter has raised about $4,000 annually at the All Saints' Book Sale. Special fund-raising projects are undertaken to accomplish major repairs and capital projects. Proceeds from this year's Book Sale will go towards the $50,000 pledge made by the chapter to pay for the repair of the Historic Church steeple.
