Where Do Churches Come From?

Posted onOctober 7, 2021 | 0 comments

We pass them every day on our commutes. Even if a new one pops up here and there, we rarely ask: Where do churches come from? We may be aware of our church’s humble beginnings, but as a congregation changes, there are fewer people who remember those beginnings. Ask one of All Saints’ founding members and you will realize that a lot went into starting something that we take for granted today. There are countless systems, paperwork, and documents to prepare, but before we begin to think of the red tape, we must first think about the people. ...Keep Reading

Churches too often—even if unintentionally—isolate themselves from the world. But that’s not as God intends. As the Father sends Jesus into the world, so now Jesus empowers us with his Spirit and sends us into the world to bear witness to his kingdom. ...Keep Reading

The sequence of Commission-Ascension-Pentecost sets the scene not only for the entire book of Acts, but also for the entire life of the church. We are a people commissioned by Jesus Christ to bear witness to him. As the ascended Lord of all, we are a people committed to bringing the reign of Jesus in heaven to bear upon this earth. And then it’s Pentecost that makes this possible. ...Keep Reading

COVID Relief Gifts

Posted onJune 7, 2021 | 0 comments

Last year, as the COVID pandemic was surging and no one really knew what kind of impact this might have on the economy, All Saints took advantage of a PPP Loan (Payroll Protection Plan) from the federal government for approximately $40,000 to make sure our employees would be paid during this time. The loan was forgiven since we used the relief funds as intended. ...Keep Reading

There’s no doubt about it: 2020 was a tough year! It was as if, beginning last March, we entered into a perpetual Lent, a dark and cold winter that never seemed to end. If you recall last year’s annual meeting, we heard from those of you who had participated in our Mission Abbey Pastorates, groups that were designed to capture the hopes and dreams of those ministry opportunities we envisioned for our Mission Abbey...Keep Reading
