church, we cannot be all things to all people; but, we do welcome all
people. Make no mistake; we are broken, sinful people who are
longing for the good news of God’s love spoken to us through Jesus

imagine. It’s this promise that we want to share with
you. The Holy Spirit is active in the members of All
Blessings on your journey and we hope you find All Saints to be a place
that reflects God’s boundless love for you as a child of God.
