Welcome to All Saints!
Whether you are just having a look or are searching for a new place to worship, we are delighted to have you. All Saints is a warm and caring community of families and singles, young and old. We have members from all backgrounds and many nationalities. If you would like more information about our church community, or want to get connected, please contact the church office (301-654-2488), or fill out a visitor connect card when you visit.
We are located on Chevy Chase Circle, between Western Avenue/Oliver Street and Grafton Street, on the DC/Maryland line.
What to expect on Sunday
Arriving at All Saints is easy, though parking may take some extra time. There are several entrances to the church building. Once you enter, greeters will help direct you.
All of our worship services are on the main level (first floor). You can find coffee, bagels, and donuts during most of the morning. Then, be sure to stay for a full lunch after worship.
Education offerings for both children and adults are at 9 a.m., with an additional adult Bible class at 11:30. Feel free to drop in – you will be warmly welcomed.
Worship at All Saints ranges from traditional to contemporary. If you don't know when to stand, sit, or kneel, simply follow along as you are able. It's all about praising God and hearing the Good news of Jesus Christ. Regarding Holy Communion, we invite all Baptized Christians to receive – or you may come forward for a blessing. Children are welcome at all services.
Wondering what to wear? Many people tend to dress up, with men wearing jacket and tie. But we're not fussy - come as you are!
A note from our Rector
There was a long time in my life when I wanted to believe in something but could not see how it could be Jesus Christ and the unconditional love and forgiveness promised in Him. Now that seems to be about the only thing I can truly believe in.
If you have an obstacle to belief, a lack of peace of mind, or perhaps a problem with relationships or situations, please know that I would be very glad to sit and listen, or to just see you among us. Having walked your path myself, maybe I can listen and offer something to help. The Bible says that if you ask you will receive and if you knock the door will be opened. For a long time I never believed that, but now I know it to be true.
Please come to visit this or any Sunday. Or, just give me a call so we can set a time to sit together. I genuinely enjoy listening and sharing matters of faith and heart.
Ed Kelaher, Rector
