Liturgical style and practice
All Saints celebrates the Holy Eucharist three times each Sunday, at 7:45am (Rite I, in-person), 8:30am (contemporary Family Table, in-person), and 10:30am (Rite II, in-person and live-streaming). We also offer Morning and Evening Prayer via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our mission is further enriched by special services and musical events throughout the year.
Music is an important part of All Saints Church’s identity and worship, led by Peter Crisafulli, our long-term musical director. A strong spirit of joy and camaraderie pervades our musical and choir fellowship, along with a love for great music, as we offer glorious sounds to God each week. On Sundays, traditional Anglican organ music and the parish adult choir accompany the 10:30am service. Contemporary praise and worship music (frequently featuring guitar) accompanies the 8:30am Family Table service.
Over the last 10 years, we:
+ Doubled our membership to ~2,000 members and 600 active families spanning multiple generations, ethnicities, and political beliefs
+ Added a contemporary Family Table worship service, to complement our traditional Anglican worship
+ Enhanced our adult, youth, and children’s education programs
+ Expanded our global and local mission and outreach programs
+ Conducted a 4-year Kingdom Campaign to strengthen our ministries, building & grounds, and finances
+ Adopted a 2020-24 Strategic Plan, which sets our priorities
+ Promoted healing and unity within the parish and with the Diocese of Washington
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we used live streaming, Zoom meetings, and phone calls to continue and expand our ministries. Importantly, we never missed a Sunday together! We also began a daily online devotional (entitled ‘Daily Moment with God,’ written by clergy, staff, and parishioners), which is read by 300+ people daily. Friends of the parish from California to Uganda told us that we helped sustain them and nourish their faith during a time when in-person worship was not possible.
- Keep politics out!
- Invest more in lay leadership training and development
- Improve communication of Mission, Vision, and Kingdom Church goals
- More transparency in financial status
- More intergenerational worship
- More discipleship opportunities
- Bring in more people from local community
- Need more volunteer opportunities to get more of the parish involved
All Saints Church is seeking a faith-filled, proven, effective leader and builder who will help us continue to thrive and grow in advancing our mission, as we strive to expand our ministries, programs, and outreach to the larger community. We are seeking a person of faith, maturity, and demonstrated accomplishment, well-versed in scripture and preaching the Gospel, with strong leadership abilities and vision. This rector will have successfully led a parish or assisted materially in the growth of a large parish. Ideally, they should be prepared to serve for at least 5-7 years.
