Happenings at All Saints'

hospitality cartAll visitors are our honored guests. If you would like a tour of the church during your visit, please let the clergy know ahead of time when you’ll be visiting, and they’ll schedule a time after worship to give you a tour of the church and introduce you to our family.

When you enter our church for worship, you will be greeted by one of our Stewards (ushers) who will give you a worship bulletin and answer your questions. If you would like more information about our parish, they have guest material they can give you.

We have a Welcome Center with a Coffee Bar. If you are interested, please ask for directions to it. Here you will find fresh coffee and you will be able to socialize with our family. Sunday visitors may also enjoy breakfast, September - May, from 8:15 - 10:15 a.m.

As you enter our sanctuary, you will experience an atmosphere of beauty and reverence. Episcopal churches are built in many architectural styles; but large or small, elaborate or plain, your eye will be drawn to the altar and historical stained glass windows. Your emotions and thoughts will be taken at once to God in this ambiance of holiness.

We observe the traditional Christian worship seasons - Advent, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost. Our sanctuary allows you to experience many worship arts, particularly the radiant colors of these changing holy seasons in which time is sanctified.

churchAll Saints' worship involves the congregation. In the pews, you will find the Book of Common Prayer, the use of which enables the congregation to share fully in worship. We also have Bibles in the pews for study and reflection.

As a liturgical church, you may wonder when to stand, sit, and kneel. A general rule is that we stand to sing, to say the Creed and for the reading of the Gospel. We sit during anthems, readings of the Bible, and the sermon. We kneel for prayer as an act of humility before God. Some Episcopal congregations stand for prayer. You are free to stand for prayer at All Saints', if that is your tradition.

Our main worship is the Holy Eucharist, which means 'thanksgiving', thus the central focus of Episcopal worship is the altar, the saving work of Christ.

While parts of the service are always the same, others change. At Holy Eucharist, for example, Bible selections are read. These change each Sunday, as do the psalms. Certain prayers also change according to the worship season. Page numbers for parts of the service are printed in the worship bulletin you receive from the Steward.

Following worship, the clergy will greet you as you depart. Be sure to let them know if you are a guest. Refreshments are served on most Sundays at the entrance after the 10:50 a.m. worship service.
