Saturday Worship

A Contemplative Service of Word and Table

Saturdays, 5 PM in the Sanctuary

Saturday evening Worship is on hold for now, in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Sunday Worship at FPC

We welcome you!

Our in-person and virtual Sunday Worship services are both at 10:30 am.
In response to CDC guidelines, we wear masks for indoor Worship and for all other indoor gatherings. Childcare is available for in-person Worship (for babies and children through age 5 years). 

To attend Worship virtually, go to the Frederick Presbyterian Church Facebook page. Access the Worship guide here. We keep an archive of virtual Sunday Worship services on the FPC YouTube page.

Out of an abundance of caution and to minimize the spread of COVID-19, Sunday School, Youth Ensemble, and Fellowship (after Worship) will be on “winter break” throughout January.

 

** Virtual Gatherings **

Morning Prayer. FPC gathers virtually for Morning Prayer every Wednesday at 7:00. Download the Order of Prayer here.

Seasoned and Spirited Coffee Hour meets Mondays at 9:30 am. Come chat with friends!

 

** Coming Up (Save the dates!) **

Annual Congregational Meeting. Sunday, February 6, immediately after Worship.

Souper Bowl Sunday. On Sunday, February 13, the FPC youth group will be outside church from 9:30-10:15 am, collecting gifts of food to benefit clients of the Frederick Food Bank. After Worship, they will collect monetary gifts for the Food Bank.

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.
