    Join Historic Rocky Springs Chapel, Inc.

Chaplain McCarty is a member of the nonprofit organization Re-enactor's Missions for Jesus Christ (RMJC). Its members, who serve as chaplains and colporteurs, and portray United States Christian Commission Delegates are sent into the field as men and women of God, solidly committed to preaching, teaching and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the winning of souls among the ranks of Civil War re-enactors and enthusiasts across the United States. Prior to Chaplain McCarty's sermon, HRSC Trustee and Preacher Kirk Callison, who is also a member of RMJC, will give a presentation on the aftermath of the Maryland campaign (or Antietam campaign), which occurred September 4–20, 1862, to include Frederick's role as “one vast hospital” after the Battle of Antietam. 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!
