God's word put into action!
Our mission is to nurture the renewing power of God's Spirit so that All Saints church can be faithful in its response to God's call to "go and teach all nations." Outreach opportunities include God's Work Our Hands Sunday, activities at Green Acres Nursing Home, Down Home Days Booth, and much more!
The finance and stewardship task force work hand in hand to put before the congregation our annual ministry plans and needs. Through the year our ministry team works to keep the congregation updated on giving through newsletter articles, special mailings and brief temple talks. We work closely with the Church Council and all Ministry teams to prepare and Annual Spending Plan presented at the congregational meeting in January.
Educational opportunities include Sunday school, BLAST, vacation Bible school, adult bible study, and confirmation. Our goals are to recruit students and teachers, find music leaders for special programs and expand all classes and activities.
BLAST for Kids: 2nd Sat monthly, 10:00am-11:30am
Adult Bible Study: Sundays, 9:00am
Our team looks for projects that will encourage All Saints members to share their faith through various projects. Our goals are to support, enhance and care for the welfare of our community and the world. Some of projects include: Prayer Shawl Ministry, Greeting Card Program, Back to School Project, Servant Cross, "Forgotten Man Ministries" and many others.
Our ministry revolves around planning and scheduling activities for all members of the congregation. Some examples include a family night at the church with movies and popcorn in conjunction with our youth group, caroling at Christmas time, sports activities, etc. The ministry of the Youth Team plan all activities for the youth in our congregation. These include things like going to a Lugnuts game, helping at the local mission serving lunch, Ski Trips to help those who are differently abled, Bible Study, and lots of fun!
The governing body of our church, the council consists of elected members of the congregation. We oversee all aspects of the operation of the church including the budget. Each member of the council also serves as a liaison to one of the teams.
Our ministry involves all aspects of the interior and exterior physical properties of the church. This includes all maintenance, lawn care, snow removal, long range projects (new roof, etc.) and small projects (clean carpet, etc.). We host a spring and fall work day every year. We also have developed a prayer walk on our property. Several families have adopted different sites along the walk to plant shrubs and flowers. This is an ongoing ministry.
Our organization involves a group of about 8-10 ladies of the congregation who meet every Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. at the church. They have been faithfully meeting for over thirty years. Our goal is to meet the needs of our congregation, our community and our world by providing warm quilts to families. The quilts come in all sizes: twin, full, queen and baby quilts.
The ministry of the Worship and Music team includes all aspects of the worship service. Opportunities are available for assisting with the worship; from ushering to reading to assisting with communion. Music is very important for our worship and our choir plays an important role in this ministry. Our team coordinates all aspects of the service including hymn selection and preparing for seasonal and special services.
Music Practice: Thursdays, 7PM
We will resume practices this fall.
Our group plans many activities during the year including hosting the Craft Bazaar in November, sponsoring a women's retreat in January/February, organizing several congregational dinners/activity nights during the year.
God loves you, no exceptions!
