Church Revisited 2020

Uncertainty. Confusion.  Anxiety. Impatience. Boredom. Concern. Loneliness.  


These are all feelings most of us are all experiencing first hand at this unpredictable time in our history.  However, our hope at All Saints' is that we can bring some of the normal patterns of our faith, worship, and community connection to comfort you in this unsettling time.  


On this page you can get information about worship opportunities we will be bringing you online, resources for prayer and spirituality, and a knowledge that there are real people who care about you behind the scenes -- there for you whether it is phone, email, text, or video.

Eastertide Series 2020: Relationship is Essential

Being in relationship with God and each other is essential to living a heathy and whole life that  accomplishes God’s purposes and brings us the happiness and contentment we so desire. This series will explore why we need relationships, why we avoid the relationships we need, and how  we can make the relationships we have richer and more fulfilling, even in a crazy Coronavirus world where we may not always be with each other in person. 


Week 1:

Relationship is Essential to Being

Week 2:

Relationship is Essential to Becoming

Week 3:

Relationship is Essential to Belonging



Serve  & Connect . . .

Right now, while in-person gatherings are discouraged, please call friends and family to check in with one another.  Particularly, check in on those who are not comfortable online or have Internet access. Not everyone texts. So be conscious of your loved ones' preferred method of communication. 

 

For those battling any form of mental illness, be it anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, etc. times like these can be truly overwhelming. We may be required to physically distance ourselves from others, but we need to keep in contact in any other ways we can. So call, text, FaceTime, Skype, use social media, send a card, whatever, but keep in touch, especially with those you know are also battling other issues. We all need to know there are people out there who care about us right now.


Taking care of each other is the best way we can serve the common good. 

Loneliness is a struggle for everyone right now and recent surveys indicate that almost half of Americans are having feelings of depression or anxiety as the effects of social distancing drain our spirits. All Saints’ developed an educational brochure to help you and the people you care about manage loneliness in the midst of pandemic. In it you will find ideas for addressing loneliness when life requires us to stay apart from each other. We also invite you to explore the Loneliness in America Project for other resources and education. Loneliness has been a significant problem in the United States for many years but the pandemic of 2020, and the self-isolating behavior it forced on us, makes this distressing state of mind an almost universal experience.

"The Gathering to Grow" Home Study Group with Patrice & Lucian Taylor is continuing throughout the summer session. Throughout the centuries, Christians met in intimate settings for prayer and community for good reasons. In a small setting you can share your struggles and ask hard questions. You can really know and be known, a very rare thing in a country where one in four of us have no one with whom to share important news. You can grow in your spiritual walk because you are accountable to other believers who care about you. It’s scary but it’s also a special gift, this type of connection. The members of the Gathering to Grow home study group have experienced this connection, even as we moved from meeting at home to sharing all our homes via Zoom.


It's not too late to join in, always taking new members. On the second and fourth Monday’s of July and August we will gather via Zoom from 7:00pm-8:30pm for fellowship, study, and Compline. Please join us by emailing Patrice at palshatti@allsaintsoncentral.org. In gathering, we all grow.
