ALL SAINTS VISION

All Saints’ new vision paints a picture of where we will be in five years. It envisions making a relevant impact by creating increased connections in our local community. It articulates the need for all of us to engage in a spiritual journey or process and tend to the ongoing task of cultivating healthy souls, in connection to Christ. It challenges us to connect with the next generation and invest in children, youth and their families. Finally, it invites each of us to make meaningful connections between faith and life as we act upon our unique purpose to serve.

  • HEALTHY SOULS

    – inspire a pursuit of life-long spiritual formation and wellness rooted in every facet of life including emotional, intellectual, financial, social and physical well-being.


    First Peter 1:22

    Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart.



    At All Saints, we believe faith is connected to our entire being and that every aspect of our wellness impacts our faith. As we live into our vision, we have been developing information to help each of us build well-being so that we can be a positive impact in our families and community.


    If you would like to be part of a pilot group to help refine this work, please send an email to the church office indicating your interest. If you have questions, email Jane Sholtz


  • RELEVANT IMPACT

    – positively shape the tone and culture of our community and partner with neighboring organizations to transform lives.


    Matthew 5:14

    You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid.



    IN THE COMMUNITY

    An initial donation of $1,500 from the All Saints Benevolence Fund and donated funds from All Saints members is helping provide breakfast to kids in learning programs at Urban Ventures. Visit Urban Ventures' website to learn more about their programs.



    IN OUR WORLD

    Journey with us as we learn and take steps to understand and practice racial justice in our world. Find resources on the racial justice page.


  • STRONG FAMILIES

    – develop and support resilient, faith-filled families by creating unique experiences to stretch faith and find purpose in Christ.


    1 John 4:19 

    We love because he first loved us. 



    This year, All Saints Preschool  and Child Care are actively seeking ways for our community of learners to be more engaged in a community outreach platform. During November, we will take part in the ICA Food Shelf Holiday Dinner Program. Kids will be finding ways to help at home that will ultimately financially contribute to this fundraising campaign. Each month, we hope to continue our footprint within our community with varied forms of engagement. Please feel free to reach out to Katie or Heather with ideas.



  • UNIQUE PURPOSE

    – encourage and challenge each other to develop gifts and respond to our calling to serve the needs of our faith community, our neighbors and world.


    Philippians 1:6

    I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.


  • The Tuesday Outreach Quilters sent ten handmade quilts to Community Emergency Services (CES) in downtown Minneapolis to share with CES clients. A CES quilt recipient, shown in the image, remarked how delighted she was to receive the quilt, though it’s hard to see the smile behind the mask.
     
    The quilts are just one example of how All Saints' vision of Relevant Impact in the community is active, and how Unique Purpose is found by dedicated quilters.
