Faith Cafe: To meet the needs of our young parishioners, we have added the Faith Cafe. We meet monthly on the 4th Sunday evening of each month at our Parish Hall.
** From 7:00-8:00PM we welcome our pre-confirmation youth ages 10-12
** From 8:00-9:00PM we welcome our youth ages 13-16
We encouage you to drop in, to sit, sip and talk about real life issues at Faith Café. For further information please call the office at 834-4501, or email us at email@example.com
Life in the Eucharist: Since baptism is considered full initiation into the Body of Christ, no other pre-requisite is necessary before a member of any age may receive the Eucharist. Baptized children may receive as soon as they and their parents desire them to do so. The Life in the Eucharist program, however, provides an opportunity for children and adult members alike to discover together what it means to be a Eucharistic people. With the assistance of the Child's Workbook, parents, and children learn together about God's family and the place of their family and themselves in God's family. We offer a course each year. Please contact the Parish Office to register for the next course.
Liturgical Dance Classes: are offered to our youth on Sunday afternoons in the Parish Hall. They add a new dynamic to our Sunday Worship as scheduled.
Messy Church: As a faith community we recognize and understand that life can be hectic. If you are interested in a time for relaxation and creativity, as a family; if you are interested in thinking about the things that matter to us and to God…. Messy Church at All Saints may be for you! An alternative worship opportunity for your family will be held on the first Saturday of each month beginning at 4:00 pm in the Church. It’s time for a Fresh Expression of Worship!
Servers Guild: Youth centered ministry serving at the altar during the main service of the day each Sunday.
Youth Activities: Events scheduled throughout the year.
Youth Music Ministry: Our Youth Band and Drama Troop meet regularly to enhance our worship experience throughout the year.
Vacation Bible School: Late June early July each year. Open to young people ages 3 to 12.
