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.


    1 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. To live into our vision, we developed information to help each of us build well-being so that we can be a positive impact in our families and community.

    RELEVANT IMPACT

    Matthew 5:14

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




    SPONSOR A KID AT URBAN VENTURES THIS SUMMER

    For many kids summer break means playgrounds, bike rides and trips to the beach. But in many communities, summer break also means loss of academic gains, less secure meals and support, and more stress as overworked families arrange childcare. Urban Ventures works to stand in the gap, supporting families and students over the summer. 

     
    For seven weeks this summer Urban Ventures will host Summer Ventures, a full-day youth camp that encourages students to have fun with literacy and math, while also giving them the opportunity to take classes in art, science, nutrition, music, and more! By offering a safe environment, academic support, and nutritious meals, Urban Ventures can help sustain the academic progress of our children and reduce the burden on working parents. 
     
    Thanks to many strategic partnerships, Urban Ventures can offer summer programming for $150 per child. While it is a low cost for the value, it is still beyond the means of many of our families. This is how you can help! By donating, not only can you support children this summer, but you can give them a head start on the next academic year and a brighter future.
     
    All Saints is issuing a goal to provide scholarships for 25 students to take advantage of the program this summer. Every $150 donated sends one kid to the summer program. All donation amounts are welcome  — we will combine donations to support as many scholarships as possible. The fundraiser runs through May 13.

    To donate, please mail a check to All Saints with “Urban Ventures“ in the memo line or visit urbanventures.org/donate (please include All Saints in a comment so we know the connection). Funds in excess of the goal will be sent to Urban Ventures as an unrestricted donation.

  • STRONG FAMILIES

    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. 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.
