Resources for Young Children:
Teaching Strategies has recently launched the Healthy at Home https://healthyathome.readyrosie.com/ family toolkit. The toolkit represents a comprehensive approach to provide educators and families with free resources to navigate school and program closures. Healthy at Home also provides a direct place for every family to access relevant, accurate, and easy to implement activities that meet the needs of diverse leaners. The Healthy at Home resources were designed by medical, mental health, and early childhood experts to provide support for families and schools.
Stress and Coping
Fear and anxiety about COVID-19 can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Also, helping others cope with their stress can also make our community stronger. However, some of you may need one-on-one support to get through this pandemic. If you, or someone you care about, are feeling overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety, please contact Fr. Callender ASAP and he will help you with connecting with a counselor.
Free Radio Yogi Zoom Yoga Class
Stephanie Gaines-Bryant will be leading her chair yoga classes online via Zoom.com. The classes will be held twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 AM-10:30 AM. It is a 30-minute class for senior citizens, anyone who has physical challenges, and for anyone who wants to keep moving. It is critical for our seniors to remain active during this time. Just 30 minutes twice a week will do wonders for your mental and physical well-being.

Outreach and Feeding Ministries:
For outreach programs, particularly feeding ministries, keep in mind that no more than 10 people should be gathered at one time. Volunteers packing meals should be kept to a minimum and perhaps a schedule worked out for pick-up and drop-off of food. Meals should not be served at our churches, but should all be “to-go.” Use your creativity and best judgment as you continue your outreach ministries with gatherings of fewer than 10 people and ask your vulnerable volunteers to stay home at this time. If you have questions, contact our canon for mission, the Rev. Chris McCloud at [email protected]
“We must continue to move safely through this new stage and follow the instructions that our leaders are calling us to do as well: Wash your hands, isolate when needed, read the Bible, listen to soothing music, do not let the news build up your anxiety, and most importantly always pray.”

Sunday Child Care
Child Care for infants and toddlers (up to the age of four) is available every week of the year during the 10:30 AM worship service. The Child Care area is located in Classroom #1 in the Family Life Center Building. Parents should escort their children to the classroom. We utilize a sign-in procedure and collect cell numbers, so we can notify you during the service if your child needs you for any reason. If you are new to the church, the Childcare Supervisor will be able to assist you in bringing your child/ren to the classroom and answer any questions you may have.
Sunday School is offered for our young people ages 5-17 years old during the academic year (September – June). We offer a wonderful program (Living the Good News), where our young people have an engaging opportunity for learning the Holy Scriptures.
St. Philip’s Church has started a new Youth Group that will meet once a month on Saturdays for fun activities, events and trips. Please check out the full church and diocesan calendars located on the information table for upcoming events and dates.
Food Pantry Needs – Thank you for your past donations!
We ask that you remember our Food Pantry. By giving as many canned goods (vegetables, meats, soups, fruit, peanut butter & jelly, cereals, etc.) as you are able, you are helping our community do more than just get by. You may also make a monetary contribution & note on the memo line “Food Pantry”.
Thank you for what you will do and have done to help us continue our ministry…we appreciate you!
Diocese of Maryland Legacy Society
~The Legacy Society is an opportunity for churches to recognize persons who have remembered their church in their will and estate plans. We encourage all parishes to establish a Legacy Society as a part of their development planning. We also have an All Saints Diocesan-wide Legacy Society which honors persons who have remembered either their parish or the Diocese at large in their will and estate plans. Your name is published in the Diocese of Maryland’s convention booklet and you will be invited to a service and reception honoring each member this fall, where both Bishops will present you with a Diocesan Legacy Society Pin. If you are interested or want more information please see John Parham or Pat McGrath.
