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.
