  ALL SAINTS ANGLICAN CHURCH

WE LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU'RE HERE, AND INTERESTED IN ALL SAINTS. IT IS OUR PRAYER THAT YOUR SEARCH POINTS YOU TO GOD, TO EXPERIENCE HIS ABUNDANT LOVE AND GRACE.   WE WOULD LOVE TO BECOME YOUR CHURCH FAMILY.


Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.  Ephesians 1:15-23

 

 

Founded as a parish in 1996, All Saints Anglican Church is part of a worldwide body of traditional Episcopal churches which practices  Christianity in the Anglican Tradition.  We uphold the faith and time honored practices of the one Holy, catholic and Apostolic Church. 

 

Through the ceremony and reverence of formal liturgy, we are drawn into something greater than ourselves, and called to give praise and honor to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, by whom and in whom all things were made. 

 

In keeping with Christ's commandment to "love thy neighbor" this parish is open to all who seek His holy companionship.  Here, may those who sorrow, find comfort; the weary, find rest; the saddened, find joy; the lonely, find friends; the troubled, find peace and above all, may we all feel the divine presence of God and His unconditional love.

 

 

 

 

The Church is the Body of Christ and is built upon these cornerstones:


  • 1. The Bible (Old and New Testaments) - the Word of God
  • 2. The Ministry (Bishop, Priest & Deacon) - ordained in the apostolic           succession
  • 3. The Seven Ecumenical Councils of the undivided Church
  • 4. The Seven Sacraments - outwards signs of inward grace, by which Jesus     is know to us
  • 5. The Apostles' Creed and Nicene Creed - the standards of Christian Faith
  • 6. The 1928 Book of Common Prayer - the basis for our corporate worship: ​​​​​​​ Online version of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer

All childen are welcome to join in! Our young children (pre-school through elementary) leave the service before the sermon and return at Holy Communion.  We are currently using the David Cook curriculum.  We have a ton of fun stuff going on here.

Men's Ministry, Anglican Church Men (ACM) is a ministry

dedicated to the fellowship of men. We meet monthly and focus on Fellowship, maintenance of the Church and planning fun events for the parishioners. Fellowship focuses on improving our relationship with God and each other. We perform minor repairs, as our individual talents allow, that cover both inside and outside projects. We host several Fun events throughout the year, eg. a night out at a Drury Lane show, a Bratwurst/hot dog lunch following a service in the spring, a chili cook-off contest brunch following a service in the fall, a Pancake breakfast during Lent following a service, and the annual Church picnic in August. Last, we contribute to outreach efforts with both funding and sweat equity.

Outreach encompasses both those efforts within the Church and with outside organizations supporting the local community and our deployed men and women of the Armed Services.
