About our Services
We want to welcome you to All Saints and hope you find something here that will lead you to our Church this Wednesday or Sunday. We are an open and affirming congregation in The Episcopal tradition and we welcome everyone with open arms and hearts. Whoever you are and wherever you are in your journey of faith, you are welcome, accepted and loved at All Saints Episcopal.
Our service follows The Holy Eucharist, Rite II in The Book of Common Prayer (BCP). On the 1st Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Eucharist Rite I at the 8 AM service. You may follow along in the prayer book (Red book in pew) or simply use the supplied bulletin as a guide. The Book of Common Prayer, the blue hymnal, and the Family Song Book (FSB) are available for everyone in the pew holders.
During the 10:30 service, childcare for infants is available immediately behind the worship space in our education building (upstairs and to the left). We ask that all children stay for “Children’s Word” which begins our service and then depart if it is your desire. We are very comfortable with children staying in the service and welcome their oohs and aahs and crying as it reminds us all of the diversity of the Church and God’s marvelous creation.
We offer classes for children from preschool through 12th grade. We offer a new and exciting Episcopal Curriculum for our young people so they can experience God in new and exciting ways. Our young people gather promptly at 9:30 am on the 1st floor of our Education Building. Christian Formation meets September through late May. Adult Formation is also offered at 9:30 in the Conference Room of the Parish Life Center.
At the 10:30 service, we offer healing prayers using the biblical tradition of the laying on of hands, as set forth in The Book of Common Prayer. If you would like to receive anointing and healing prayer, the Deacons will administer off to the side after you receive communion.
