All Saints' Episcopal Church
Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the penitent. Grant us all things necessary for our common life, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. -- The Book of Common Prayer
At All Saints', we have many ministers, because our ministers are our members. We firmly believe that all Christians are called "to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be; and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ's work of reconciliation in the world." (Book of Common Prayer, p. 855) And we invite you to minister with us, as well! Welcome to All Saints' Episcopal Church, where our hearts and God's church are open to you!
