All Saints' Church
Children, Youth, & Families
Students in 6th-12th grade and their families meet one Saturday a month in a fun and welcoming environment. We will share highs, lows, and Where You See God At Work In Your Life. This is a time to share what's really going in with you in a confidential and safe space. Emphasis will be on sharing, and service to the church and beyond.
Our drama ministry is designed to take the place of the sermon on certain Sundays, typically four times per year. The cast ranges from age 6 to 80! In addition, we enact the Nativity story at the annual pageant on Christmas Eve, complete with carols and live animals.
Mission trips with youth and adults are planned each year. In 2018, we helped a family in West Virginia with construction projects provided through the Appalachia Service Project.
