God's Work. Our Hands.
"In as much as you have done it for one of the least of these,
you have done it for me." Matthew 25:40
All Saints Lutheran Church is committed to providing its members and friends with numerous opportunities to "to Share God's love with people in the community and around the world". The Social Ministry Team offers God's people at All Saints many avenues of service through ongoing efforts, short-term and one-time projects. We encourage you to live out your faith through these ministries:
On the first weekend of each month, All Saints receives an offering of non-perishable food items. A portion of the offering is packaged for distribution to those who seek assistance at All Saints, while the remainder is distributed through Desert Mission Food Bank, which provides hundreds of emergency food boxes to people each month.
In high demand are: single-serving, easy open, disposable containers of fruit, juice, cereal, tuna, cheese and crackers; family size containers of pasta, rice, beans, sauces and peanut butter. Baby food, formula and disposable diapers are always needed.
You can support this ministry by:
Donating food and other needed items
Helping to sort, package, distribute donations
Contact the church office with any questions.
On the last weekend of each month, a financial offering is received which is used to alleviate hunger and other forms of suffering.
Gifts are regularly channeled through many proven ministries, including:
