Service to one another is an expression of God’s love.

The expression of God’s love through service happens in many ways at All Saints’ Church. We serve both outside and within our parish. Find a small group to grow with and/or an opportunity to give back to your community through service and connection.

We believe our lives are a gift.  What we do with them, with love, joy and prayer, is a reflection of our values and faith.  We believe this applies to caring for family, creating art, tending to and appreciating nature, working, sharing time with others, worshiping and many other activities.  The most rewarding activities are often those that we share with others.  There are quite a few opportunities to connect with groups at All Saints’.  Find a small group to grow with and/or an opportunity to give back to your community through service and connection.
