Saturday Worship

A Contemplative Service of Word and Table

Saturdays, 5 PM in the Sanctuary

Beginning January 11, 2020 through May 30, 2020.  There will be no service on April 11, 2020.

Sunday Worship

With Strategic Care, We're "Re-Gathering"

With a strict distancing process, FPC is once again gathering for in-person Worship: at 5 pm on Saturdays and 9 am on Sundays. We continue to celebrate Worship virtually at 10:30 am on Sundays.

In-Person Worship Because we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, in-person Worship entails both screening (to ensure everyone is healthy) and social distancing (to ensure we remain healthy). Masks are required. A team of ushers escorts each person (or family) into the sanctuary before Worship, and everyone is escorted from the sanctuary once Worship is over. Please note: for safety reasons, no one is able to enter the sanctuary once Worship begins. Please review the  Congregational Guidelines for Re-Gathering and view the FPC Gathering Together Again video before attending in-person Worship.

Those attending in-person Worship must print out the Worship guide at home and bring it along; we will not be handing out Worship guides until it is safe to do so. For the Saturday, 5 pm, Worship guide, click here. For the Sunday, 9 am Worship guide, click here.

Live-Streamed Worship: The FPC Sunday Worship live stream continues to begin at 10:15 am with music; Worship starts at 10:30 am.  To participate in the live stream service, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page. For the at-home, virtual Worship guide and weekly bulletin, click here. To view a virtual service after the live stream, go to the FPC YouTube page.

 

Alcoholics Anonymous

Meetings Year-Round

Alcoholics Anonymous has received FPC’s support for more than 40 years. The church provides meeting rooms and kitchen space for more than 20 weekly meetings as well as seasonal all-night meetings. FPC also offers space for weekly meetings of Al-Anon, a support group for friends and family members of problem drinkers.

Food Bank Donations

Monthly - 1st Sunday

The first Sunday of every month, FPC congregants are encouraged to bring food or hygiene items to donate to the Frederick Food Bank. Donations are down, and the number of Food Bank clients is rising—people are in need year-round. Please bring donations with you to worship.

Open Door

Wednesdays at 6:30pm, during the FCPS school year

For more than 30 years, FPC has partnered with our neighborhood school, Parkway Elementary, to provide a mentoring program for children in grades K-1. The Parkway community liaison selects children for the weekly program, which includes crafts and educational activities, story time, and a nutritious dinner. The longest-running program of its kind in Frederick County Public Schools, Open Door is an intergenerational celebration of learning and relationship in a happy, loving environment.

FPC Sunday School

Spiritual Exploration for All Ages

2019-20 School Year

The new Sunday School year kicks off on Sunday, September 15th, and continues through mid-June. Classes for children, teens, and adults meet at 9:30am on Sundays (one hour before Worship). All are welcome.
