- 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) Third Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM (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 ). Mom's Day Out (Various Weekdays) September – May All Saints continues to offer a cooperative child-care program for parents of young children ages 15 months (and walking) to 4 years. With several groups, parents in each group rotate responsibility for caring for their group’s children in the All Saints church nursery, on a selected weekday . The cost is $3 per child, and staying parents do not pay for that week. Each day’s group needs a minimum of 8 parent participants, and caps the number of children at 10. The program is not limited to members, so let your friends and neighbors know about this great outreach! For more information or to participate, contact Ruth Ford (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 ). 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.
