Celebrating the Body of Christ

All Saints celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ and whose baptism is complete. At the Lord’s table we gather with the faithful of every time and place, trusting that the promises of God will be fulfilled and that all tears will be wiped away in the new Jerusalem.

Pastors’ Emergency Fund

IMG 3097

The Pastors’ Emergency Fund allows our pastors to respond to people in need. Most recipients are given a $25 gift card to Woodmans which they can spend on gas or groceries. Money is also used to assist with rent, bills, or security deposits at the pastors’ discretion and via referrals from Porchlight, DAIS and other organizations.
The Worship Mission has designated the first Sunday of each month for donations to the fund. You are free to make donations to the Pastors’ Emergency Fund at any time, but we hope that focusing on one Sunday each month for donations will help our pastors more consistently meet the needs of those in our community.
