Faith Groups

FAITH GROUPS connect believers to God and His family. Faith Groups (previously known as Small Groups) expose participants daily to the Holy Spirit working in the hearts of people and ministries that reach out to men, women and children who are forming who they are and who they will be through the saving grace of God's love. Faith Groups develop believers for ministry and evangelism by teaching do-able actions that fit their lives. Faith Groups invite members to gather around Scripture, prayers of intercession and thanksgiving and, at the end, say: "Wow, we just engaged in the act of witnessing!" And they will be right. Like Peter and John before the Sandedrin, may the people of this church SHARE all they have seen and heard about the love of Jesus because they can't keep it to themselves!

New ideas for Faith Groups ministries are ALWAYS welcome! Please contact Kevin Harpel in the church office with your suggestions. Continue to scroll down to see is what is offered at All Saints:

A Growing Place - All Saints Community Garden

We are located on the north side of the campus outside Fellowship Hall.

With hard work and many hands, the garden is growing, and we're excited about the progress.  Sunday School students have planted beans and herbs.  Our faithful gardeners have sifted rocks and worked hard to make the soil ready for more.  We've decorated and filled three raised bed planters.  We've also started a pollinator garden to attract and support bees, butterflies  and hummingbirds.

We need you, your time and your talents!

We meet the first Saturday of every month from 8:00 am to 10:00 am!

How can you help? Experienced gardeners, inexperienced wannabe gardeners, idea people, action people….YOU! We need donations and builders to build a permanent structure that will keep animals (rabbits, birds, squirrels) from eating what we've planted. We need more of YOU to help construct a permanent structure to keep those pesky desert animals at bay.

Bring a hat, refillable water bottle, sunscreen, gloves, kneeling/knee pads.

Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.  Genesis 2:7

 See you in the dirt!
