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.

Holy Week Worship – Live Streamed

Join us online as we prayerfully share these most holy of days.

Because we are temporarily unable to gather together in person, FPC is “broadcasting” Holy Week services online.

PALM SUNDAY, April 5th, 10:15 am: We gather to celebrate Jesus’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem, when people lined his path with palm leaves and waved palm branches in welcome.

To participate in the live stream service, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page. Pre-service music and the live stream begin at 10.15 am. If you do not see our sanctuary right away, refresh the page until it appears. Click here for the weekly worship guide and bulletin. After Worship, a link to the service will remain on the FPC Facebook page will also be posted to YouTube, where it can be viewed at any time.

WEDNESDAY Morning Prayer, April 8th, 7:00 am: To join us for morning prayer using Zoom, click here. You will not be able to speak to others via this link, but you can follow along by downloading the Order of Morning Prayer.

MAUNDY THURSDAY, April 9th, 7:30 pm: We gather to remember and celebrate Jesus’s final meal with his friends, and to reflect on his commandment that we should “love one another.” To participate in the live stream service, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page

GOOD FRIDAY, April 10th, 7:00 pm: We gather to focus on Christ’s final hours on earth: to recall his suffering and death. To participate in the live stream service, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page

EASTER SUNDAY,  April 12th, 10:30 am: Hallelujah! Jesus IS Risen! We gather as one to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To participate in the live stream service, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page

In-Person activities at FPC are cancelled through at least April 14th, but CHECK OUT THE FPC ZOOM GROUPS!

FPC takes the risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic seriously, and we’re following public-health advisories recommending “social distancing” to reduce the spread of COVID-19 — but that doesn’t mean we can’t meet at all. It IS the 21st century, you know.

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

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.
