Vision and Mission Statement
Vision Statement
We, the community of All Saints’, endeavor to live the love of Christ, as we embrace and serve all of creation as one family.
Mission Statement
1. To become a community of people who worship together and live the Gospel of Christ to the fullest.
2. To become a community of people who practice the Baptismal Covenant and respect the dignity of all people.
3. To become a community of people who, on a daily basis, welcome, empower, and equip one another for the individual ministry to which one is called.
4. To become a people who incorporate the best from the past, embrace the best of the present and prepare for a better future.
Parish Event Group
At All Saints’ we occasionally all get together to enjoy special celebrations: sometimes we gather on Holidays, or on the significant Sundays that mark the season of the Church year; sometimes we have a party just to eat and visit and simply take pleasure in each other’s company as we mark noteworthy events in the life of our Parish and our members.
Vestry member Ricki Duffee and Don Hill are organizing a committee to help plan and host these events: If you would like to be a part of their special “Parish Events Group” please notify the office or let a vestry member know you would like to help.
It will be a group with very few meetings, and lots of fun and fellowship.

Teri in Sewanee

Teri Will Be Attending Sewanee the Remainder of June
I will be out of town from June 11th through June 30 to attend classes at Sewanee. This is my last summer of course work for a Master of Sacred Theology (STM) degree (a degree that differs from a Master of Divinity or a Doctor of Ministry in that the STM is considered an academic and not a professional degree). Should a pastoral emergency arise during this time, please contact Kaye Staggs. I am grateful for this time of study and look forward to being back with you on July 1st.
