  • Sunday Adult Christian Education

    Adult Christian Education resumes at 10:10am Sundays in St. Barbara  

    Join us this program year (September – May) as we walk The Path, along with our children and youth. The editors of The Path describe it this way: it “offers readers a clear and easy-to-read introduction to the grand story of the Bible. Follow the path of God’s love all the way from the beginning to the end, from Adam’s creation to John’s  revelation. The Path is an experience unlike any other: an amazing 360-degree overview of the vast, sweeping epic of God’s extraordinary love for ordinary people.” You may read ahead in your own copy (available through Forward Movement) during the week, or simply join us on Sundays (no preparation required) as we explore the “greatest hits” of the Bible. 


    October 1: The Path, Chapter 4 (“Joseph Had a Dream”)


    October 8: The Rev. Canon Victor Austin discusses his book, "Losing Susan" about his wife's 34 year battle with cancer. 


    October 15: The Path, Chapter 5 (“I AM WHO I AM”)

  • Shoulders Down: Conversations Beyond Our Bubble

    Join us on Tuesday, December 5

    in the St. Barbara Meeting Rooms


    This evening's discussion: What does healthy news and social media look like?


    It seems almost impossible to talk about life in 2017 without also talking about the state of "The Media." Especially if you include social media in this category. How often has the media been the story the media is covering? We are surrounded by information - awash in words and images - yet many people feel less informed, less able to distinguish between fact and fiction, less certain of the line between news and entertainment. Is there a line? Should there be a line? It seems more and more the media is described as a force happening to us, rather than a thing of our own making. How do you see and feel the media impact in your life? Are you comfortable with the media? How would you like to see it change or grow?

    Join us to share stories around the media, how you have interacted with it in your life, and where you feel it could or should go from here. The more diverse the backgrounds and ideologies of those in our Conversations, the more opportunities for each of us to learn and grow. Everyone has a story to tell. We hope you will bring yours to our Conversation Circle, and even a friend or two with a different perspective to share.


    Light refreshments are available. We encourage you to bring a friend with you to the Shoulders Down Conversation Circle, especially someone who challenges your ideological bubble.

  • All Saints' Prison Ministry

    Ever wanted to be an Angel?  Here’s a chance to earn your wings!

    There are more than 200,000 children in Arizona with one or more parents incarcerated. The Angel Tree is a Prison Fellowship that connects parents in prison to their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. This year, All Saints’ will sponsor Christmas gifts for 25 children, while delivering the gospel and reminding these children that they remain in the thoughts and hearts of their absent parent. We will need everything from crafters, to logistics managers to make this effort a success. If you feel called to deliver the gift of a parents love to a child at Christmas, please contact Lora Villasenor.


    If you have any questions about this ministry, please contact Lora Villasenor at lmvillasenor@msn.com.
