Our Church


Founded in 1897, All Saints Church has from the beginning been a warm and caring community of families and singles, young and old, committed to:

  • spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, revealed in the Bible
  • providing extended opportunities for Christian growth through Bible study and related learning experiences
  • caring for those in need and sharing our talents for mutual enrichment
  • encouraging, supporting, and inspiring each other as we share and reinforce our faith and trust in the love of God


All Saints began as a mission church in a little school house located on Chevy Chase Circle. In 1901 ground was broken for a new church to seat 250 at each service. Built of Rock Creek granite, the original church is today incorporated into the All Saints complex. All Saints’ architecture is English Gothic Revival and the church contains outstanding examples of stained glass art.

You are invited to visit and talk.

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.
