All Saints has a rich history in its Call to serve those outside the walls of the church building. The Gaston Hospice House is named after the first Rector of All Saints, Robin Johnson, who served All Saints for many years while also serving the Gaston County Community by starting many ministries to help those in need. This rich tradition of serving those in need continues today in many ways:
Salvation Army Meals: All Saints provides and serves meals at The Salvation Army every Monday evening. We currently have six teams and are looking to expand our ministry there. Our cooking team meets on the 1st Saturday of each month at 9AM.
Family Promise Ministry: All Saints is part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network that host Homeless Families at their church four times each year. The church feeds, mentors, and houses homeless families.
Towel Ministry: All Saints Towel Ministry funds and builds handicap ramps for those in Gaston County who have a need.
Ecclesia Garden: All Saints has a garden that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to The Salvation Army Soup Kitchen.
Morningside Nursing Home: All Saints leads a Sunday worship service every Sunday.
Backpack Ministry: All Saints provides food for needy children at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School. Enough food and snacks are provided for the children for the weekend to ensure basic nourishment.
Habitat for Humanity: All Saints just recently joined the Presbyterian and St. Mark's Episcopal team in helping to build Gaston County's 99th Habitat House. We hope to continue helping to build housing for those who just need a little assistance.
