For more than a century, St. Anne's Episcopal Church has brought people together to worship God. Steeped in tradition, and nestled in the heart of historic Smithsburg, Maryland, St. Anne's is one of the rare churches that both honors the past and looks to the future.
Our congregation is made up of people from every generation and a wide variety of backgrounds. We open our doors to all who are seeking a relationship with God and one another. It is our strong belief that a church family is built upon a common faith in Jesus Christ - not upon a lack of differences among its people. We strive to follow Jesus' example of appreciating the uniqueness each individual can offer.
We are open, Christ-centered, affirming and child-friendly. Families are welcome to keep their babies and children with them throughout the service, or have them attend Sunday School in the Parish House.
St. Anne's is strengthened through its traditional worship and music, as well its opportunities to contribute through meaningful service with the local Free Clinic, Food Bank, Smithsburg Fire Department, Emergency Medical Service and Habitat for Humanity. We are also proud to host the local Boy and Girl scout troops in our church Parish House.
If you've been searching for a church home - a place to grow in your relationship with God and create meaningful, lifelong friendships - we hope you'll visit us soon. Our doors are always open to you.
10:00 AM Sunday
St. Anne's services use Rite II from The Book of Common Prayer. Rite I is celebrated on the 1st and 5th Sundays of each month. We worship through traditional music from the 1982 Episcopal Hymnal and the LEVAS book (Lift Every Voice and Sing) with organ accompaniment.
Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday, and all are welcomed to the table. Children's Sunday School dismisses before Holy Communion so that families may take the Sacrament together.
St. Anne's is a wheelchair-accessible facility.
Everyone is invited to "Fellowship and Coffee" in the Parish House each Sunday directly after the service. If you are considering visiting our church, this is a wonderful time to meet our church family and find out why St. Anne's is such a special place.
We have covered-dish lunches whenever we have a 5th Sunday in the month.
