Ongoing Opportunities

  • September 27 at 1 PM

Attend a Civil War-style, nondenominational church service at Historic Rocky Springs Chapel, 7817 Rocky Springs Road, Frederick, Maryland, on Sunday, September 27, 2020, beginning at 1:00 P.M. The service will be conducted by Chaplain Steve McCarty wearing Civil War period attire. The sermon will be “The Straight Path” Proverbs 3:5-6. Miss Hannah Boley will play the chapel's antique 1909 upright piano for the service. Immediately after the service HRSC Trustee and Preacher Kirk Callison will give a short living history presentation called “Faith In Action.”

Due to Covid 19 restrictions social distancing and the wearing of masks are required. If you arrive to the service without a mask, HRSC will provide one for you.

Both Chaplain McCarty and HRSC Trustee and Preacher Kirk Callison are members of the nonprofit organization Re-enactor's Missions for Jesus Christ. HRSC is dedicated to using living history programs to accurately educate the public on historical Christian practices and the impact of faith on American society during the Civil War. The wearing of Civil War period attire to the church service and living history program is encouraged (but not required). Everyone is welcome to attend!
