- WHO WE ARE | All Saints
Our Hope and Heritage All Saints began and continues with people. On Feb. 11, 1962 All Saints became a mission congregation to create a community to worship, pray, study and serve people in need. They were organized as a member congregation of the Lutheran Church in America (LCA) with 154 baptized members. Members worshiped in Worthington’s Masonic Lodge Hall until 1963 when the congregation purchased the property at 6770 North High Street in Worthington. Here they built their first permanent home, including a sanctuary, church office, and a few classrooms. After 57 years All Saints has flourished to over 2,500 baptized members and has gone through five Building Phases to accommodate its people in reaching its mission. All Saints continues the traditions of its founders through worship, service, study, witness and support for another. Now during the pandemic, life—and also church gatherings—has been a lot different. Many people have felt isolated and disconnected from their family, friends, and church community. At All Saints Lutheran Church, we've worked hard to keep our congregation connected in safe ways. We invite you to take a brief look at our Annual Report video (below) to see how we've remained connected and kept ministry alive over the past year. To learn more about membership at All Saints, please contact Lead Pastor Bonnie Gerber or Associate Pastor Scott Nellis . All Saints is a member congregation of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) and is a part of its Southern Ohio Synod .
- FELLOWSHIP GROUPS | All Saints
Fellowship Groups Daily Morning Prayer Monday – Friday, mornings at 8:30 AM (Please check the calendar for current dates) A small prayer group that meets each week, and uses an abbreviated version of Luther's Order for Morning Prayer (pp. 293 in the ELW Hymnal). These meetings don't include any of the singing, only a reading from the Psalm and two Scripture readings based on the Daily Readings for that day. We also focus our daily prayers around a different theme for each day: Monday - the church and its mission Tuesday - individuals/families in need of care Wednesday - the nation, the world, and its leaders Thursday - care for God's creation To learn more, please contact Rick Bradley (firstname.lastname@example.org ). MOCA (Mothers of College Adults) (Check Calendar for all specific dates) MOCA (Mothers of College Adults) is a group of women from All Saints who have children in college (and beyond). They get together on the third Thursday of most months at 7 p.m. to enjoy dinner (or an appetizer) and a drink, at various surrounding restaurants. It’s a way to stay connected and to share fellowship with others in a similar phase of life. For more information please contact Lisa Brooks (email@example.com ). The Welcome Table -Free Monthly Meal- Last Tuesday of every month, 5:30–6:30 PM (Check Calendar for all specific dates) The Welcome Table is a free meal offered to the congregation and community to foster friendship and fellowship. Different groups within the church take turns preparing a meal with support from the congregation when needed. Join us this month! For more information, please contact our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org "Pray For Me" Campaign In November 2019, All Saints launched the "Pray for Me" Campaign, connecting church members across generations with thoughtful prayer. Research shows that youth who remain connected to their church flourish in their faith, beyond high school, and had multiple adult believers (Prayer Champions) intentionally investing in their lives. To learn more — or to become a "Prayer Champion"— please contact Lisa Brooks (email@example.com ). Yoga and Pilates (Check Calendar for all specific dates) Yoga and Pilates classes are held at All Saints. See the calendar for current dates and times. For more information please contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org Seasoned Saints First Wednesday of the month (September – June) (Check Calendar for all specific dates) Seasoned Saints welcomes people of all ages and is open to anyone who has the flexibility to join us for a luncheon, although it is most often aimed at those who are retired. It encourages social connection and gives the opportunity to learn about topics of all sorts — from history to religion to social issues — and sometimes just to have fun. Sign-up sheets are posted on our bulletin board in the Gathering Area each month.
- AUTHENTIC DIVERSITY | Mysite
In light of events that have occurred in the past year, and as we find ourselves once again at a watershed moment in history, we have encouraged the congregation of All Saints Lutheran Church to continue to engage in dialogue concerning issues of racial reconciliation and inclusivity of all people. While we always strive to promote justice, compassion, equality, and reconciliation in our classes, book studies, and sermons, it is evident that we all can do more , and that more intentional dialogue is needed. The ELCA recognizes itself to be in mission and ministry in a multicultural society and world and is committed to welcoming and affirming cultural diversity. We are committed to confronting racism and calling for justice for all people despite ethnicity, culture, economic situation, primary language or gender. Living out such commitments in daily life includes recognition, discernment and action to confront the problems, which are buried deep in each individual and in society and its structures. Much has been done, yet more work and progress is needed that can only be accomplished by working together and with partners who share a common vision. To this end, we've launched a year of Authentic Diversity here at All Saints. Our hope is to include book studies, conversations, film-showings, guest speakers, and more. To kick off this year of Authentic Diversity, we've created a 21-Day Racial Reconciliation Challenge . This 21-Day Challenge is an interactive PDF document. The 'challenge' of this document is simple: Over a period of 21 days, you are encouraged to do one 'daily action' in order to further your understanding of racial reconciliation (these actions range from reading an online article, to watching a short YouTube video, to reading scripture and a prayer). We encourage you to journey with us, as we engage in working for justice and peace in our world. Pastor Bonnie Gerber, Pastor Scott Nellis Download

- SERVICE | All Saints
Service Opportunities at All Saints All Saints has a variety of ways to get involved in serving our community and abroad. We encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more, or to get connected to any of these ministries. Caring Community Our Caring Community "shows God's loving care within the All Saints faith community by serving and supporting in times of personal and family need." It was the result of conversations that began in 2012, when people in the congregation saw a need to extend practical help to those within our own congregation. The most-often requested services are for friendly visits and for rides. We also provide simple meals, and send greeting cards and notes to those who are sick or those confined to the home. Sew Sew Saints Tuesday afternoons, 1:30–4:00 PM (except December) The Sew Sew Saints use donated fabric to sew useful items for persons in poverty around the community and world. All sewing skill levels are welcomed. People are needed to sort, iron and cut fabric, assemble quilt kits for congregation members to sew quilt tops at home, and then assemble quilt tops. The tote bags and baby layettes are easily learned as well. —Projects— Quilts for Lutheran World Relief Tote bags for an inner city giveaway Baby layettes for First English Lutheran Church in Columbus For information on current projects and meetings, please contact Gretchen Glasgow at email@example.com . Habitat For Humanity All Saints is proud to be a member of the Worthington Partnership of Habitat For Humanity. The partnership is a group of churches who finance and help build an area house each year. If you would like to help with building a house, the partnership workdays are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. No experience is necessary, and hand tools are provided. There are people on the site who will show you how to do a certain task, and work with you. Please contact the All Saints' staff to learn more or to get involved. Hunger Task Group The Hunger Task Group engages with the congregation in helping meet the hunger needs of our community. The group facilitates volunteers to assist at two area food pantries, organizes food and hygiene drives for the pantries, and leads the 'Christmas With Dignity' campaign each fall. The group meets two to three times a year and welcomes anyone interested! —Current Drives— "Thankfull" Holiday for LSS Pick up a bag with a grocery list and return it filled with all the fixings for a traditional holiday meal. We accept donations beginning in November. Worthington Pantry We have a new focus for the Worthington Pantry every month. Subscribe to our email list for more information. Look for the blue box near the office labeled “Worthington Food Pantry” and put your donations there. One More from the Store This ongoing effort asks the congregation to pick up an "extra" of one of their favorite items on each shopping trip to help our neighbors at the LSS pantries. Personal care items are always especially needed, as the pantry cannot buy them at a discount and they are not eligible purchases for those using government food assistance programs. The Laurels of Worthington Meets the third Sunday of each month at The Laurels of Worthington, 10:20 AM The third Sunday of each month, we facilitate a worship service at 10:20am in the memory care unit at The Laurels of Worthington. By engaging in fellowship with the residents, we offer an avenue for residents to grow spiritually and to be a part of a worship community. Feel free to join us as we seek to share Christ's love. For more information please contact Pastor Bonnie Gerber (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Heidi Lockhart (email@example.com ). https://lssnetworkofhope.org/foodpantries/ Lutheran Social Services Food Pantries Lutheran Social Services (LSS) focuses their efforts on food, shelter, safety and healing for those in need in 27 Ohio counties. In 12 Ohio counties LSS provides food pantries, mobile food pantries and produce distributions to move their clients’ focus away from their basic needs. —Current Projects— The Champion Food Pantry is asking for volunteers (yes, even during COVID-19). Volunteers will be prepackaging produce for clients to pick up. There will be no contact with clients. To sign up click here and access the volunteer hub. We are still looking for masks, gowns, gloves, and hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer is especially critical at our shelter sites, food pantries, senior healthcare and living facilities, and our Health Center at Faith Mission. You can view other needed items on our wish lists (scroll down to see the tabs on the page). Please deliver the items directly to our program locations. Thankfull Giving Click here for details and the shopping list. Christmas With Dignity 'Christmas with Dignity' is our annual food-assistance program for our friends in Ironton, Ohio. The event takes place in Ironton in December. Partnering with St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, we are committed to providing 500 boxes of a week’s worth of frozen meat, vegetables and side dishes to serve a family of four. The price of one box is about $32. We also collect winter wear. In 2019 we collected several hundred dollars for food boxes, 276 hats, 236 gloves, and 19 scarves (some handmade!). A huge thank you to the congregation, preschool parents, and the two participating Thrivent Teams. Operation Christmas Child Collections accepted in October and November. All Saints collects gift-filled shoe boxes in October and November every year to support this global ministry. With these shoe boxes, Operation Christmas Child brings joy, hope and the good news of God’s love to children in difficult situations around the world. Stop by the table in the hallway to pick up box labels and/or drop off your donation. We have sample boxes on the table to help provide ideas of what could be included in your shoe boxes. Helpful Tips to Remember: We can no longer put toothpaste or candy, of any kind, in the boxes There cannot be any kind of ornamentation on top of the boxes If wrapped, the box lid must be wrapped separately so the contents can be inspected and your $9 check for shipping can be applied. Yarning Saints Meets the third Monday of each month, 1:30–3:30 PM The Yarning Saints crochets and provides shawls to anyone who is need of comfort and peace. The shawls are blessed by time in the midst of our congregation, knitted with prayers, exposed to Scripture, sermons and songs of praise. They carry the joys and heartaches of our people and are surrounded by love. These special shawls comes to offer you a reminder of God’s comfort and peace and with our blessings to you! Tools For School Each year All Saints partners with St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ironton, Ohio, to provide children of Lawrence County with school supplies and backpacks. Nearly half of the students' families are unable to buy the supplies needed for school, and teachers continually express their gratitude to St. Paul's, and in turn churches like ours, for providing the necessary supplies to help their students get off to a good start in the fall. https://www.worthingtonresourcepantry.org/about-us Worthington Resource Pantry Worthington Resource Pantry serves 8 zip codes in northern Franklin County and southern Delaware County. They provide food and personal care items to those in need. —Current Projects— To donate, look for the "Worthington Resource Pantry " bin in the main office hallway.
