Summer Fun in a Godly Environment
Don't these pictures capture what All Saints Preschool summer camp is all about? From the beauty of God's creation as it shows in the rainbows of perfectly round bubbles and the joy of a child as she reaches up for them ... to the simple fun of playing with trucks or water on a hot day ... to exploring in a huge sandbox or climbing with friends in an imaginary "ship" in a faraway ocean!
Zoom Around the World
Our second annual Zoom Around the World - with our Global Mission partners from the Dominican Republic, Rwanda, Uganda, and the Congo - was a great success! We are grateful that technology has enabled us to "visit" them in this unique way - next year we hope to actually visit several of our global partners in person!
Progress on the Organ Project
The new console has been delivered and installed!

The contractors carefully remove the console from the truck in preparation for installation. Right close-up is of one the gothic arch panels, which echoes a decorative pattern found throughout the chancel and Nave.
The new platform that the console sits on (left), and - finally! - the console is installed. Note in the picture on the right that the aisle between the console and back choir pew is now unobstructed. The old console jutted a good 6” into the aisle. (One can still see the outline on the floor; parishioners often bumped into the console upon returning from the communion rail.)
A "sneak preview" of the beauty of the new organ console!
Kingdom Moments
Installing the new outdoor signage

The staff from Next Day Sign Express of Bethesda did a fantastic job installing our beautiful new signs on a very hot day earlier this summer!
Men's Spring Workday at the Rockville Women's Shelter
“You shall love the Lord with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22:37-39
