Welcome

Welcome to the All Saints’ Episcopal Church website!  We are so glad you have chosen to visit our website. Please take a few minutes to explore the many dynamic Ministries which includes but not limited to: Christian Education and Youth Program opportunities, and our vibrant Outreach Programs.

A Lectionary is a table of readings from Scripture appointed to be read at public worship. It tells us what lessons are to be read on a given date. The Episcopal Lectionary is based on the Revised Common Lectionary, which is, itself, based on the Roman Catholic Lectionary, a product of Vatican II. So it is that, most often, the Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic and other churches are using the same lessons, with slight variations. The lessons that we use follow the Episcopal form of the Revised Common Lectionary. If you are a member of one of the other denominations, these may also be your lessons. To read the Lessons and Psalm Appointed for use during our Sunday Holy Eucharist Service, click on this link Lectionary Pages and the Liturgical Calendar.

We believed that this website provides an exceptional inside of what is Behind the Red  Doors and an excellent snapshot of who we are as a church family, and reflects our action as individuals seeking to work out our faith through the values expressed in our mission statement. The best way to get to know us, is to "come and see". So we hope that you will visit us one Sunday and allow us to get to know you.

Our Neighborhood

All Saints’ Episcopal Church is proud to be located in the middle of vibrant, growing Warner Robins, Georgia. Always striving to strengthen its connection with the surrounding community, All Saints’ clergy meet with pastors of other Warner Robins churches to discuss concerns particular to our area.

Our core ministries are:   

Ø    All Saints' Food Pantry! Beginning in 1992 as a small grass-root effort to serve the needy residents in our community, it was unimaginable to foresee how this program would grow to become a vibrant and necessary vital program under the umbrella of All Saints' Episcopal Outreach Ministry.   

Ø       All Saints'  Episcopal Church Women (ECW) organizes annual fund raising events such as the Wine and Cheese Party, Silent Auction, Rummage Sale, Easter Breakfast  and the Autumn Market Place.   These funds are distributed to All Saints' Ministries,  local schools, programs to help the mentally ill and mothers and children affected by drug abuse. 

Ø       All Saints has developed and sustained a supportive relationship with  Westside Elementary School, a local school in Warner Robins.  Our congregation is so responsive to their need that there is usually two large pick-up trucks filled with school supplies and Christmas gifts delivered to the school yearly for the students in need.  The faculty and staff are overwhelmed by All Saints’ generosity.  

Ø      We also support the work of other local, national and international agencies such as Daughters of the King (DOK),  Habitat for Humanity, United Thank Offering (UTO),  Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) and many others.      

All Saints' Episcopal is located at 1708 Watson Boulevard, within 2 miles from Robins Air Force Base (Driving Directions).

 

About The Episcopal Church

 

The Episcopal Church (TEC) traces its origins back to the Church of England, which was created by King Henry VIII of England in the midst of violent religious disagreements of the 16th century. This was the time of the Reformation, and after several disagreements with the pope, King Henry VIII cut ties with the Roman Catholic Church and declared himself the head of the newly independent Church of England – also known as the Anglican Church.

TEC is distinguished by the following characteristics:

Ø Protestant, yet Catholic

Ø Worship in One's First Language

Ø The Book of Common Prayer

Ø Scripture, Tradition, and Reason

Background

All Saints' Episcopal Church has been called to action by the Holy Spirit. We are to love and serve the Lord by ministering to the needs of others, by teaching the Holy Scriptures, by preaching the Gospel and by celebrating the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist in Christ's Church.

All Saints provides an opportunity for worship as a community and to strengthen our faith in Christ. Our goal is to prepare ourselves to go into the world to do God's work and to share our faith with one another as we personally deepen our intimacy with God.

It is our sincere desire that you will find refuge here at All saints' Episcopal Church. May God's peace be with you and may you find rest here among His children.

The Mission of All Saints' Episcopal Church is "to love and serve the Lord by ministering to people, teaching the Holy Scriptures, preaching the Gospel, and celebrating the Sacraments".

Episcopal Church tradition is followed by using The Book of Common Prayer. We break bread together and receive the Body and Blood of Christ. All Saints has an active lay ministry, with members leading the Prayers of the People, reading lessons, and assisting the priest with Holy Communion.

2014 Annual Canvass

 

 

 

We believe stewardship to be essential to who we are as Christians and part of our path in knowing God and being in community with others. It is sacramental. Like Baptism and the Eucharist, it is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace. Knowing and recognizing grace is not always easy to do, especially in difficult economic times or when experiencing other hardships or tragedies. It is not something you wake up with but rather it is a spiritual practice you live into, and in living into grace, we come closer to knowing God and experiencing that shared trust in God with others. 

Please make your pledge to All Saints by December 31, 2013. You may do this on paper with the use of the Pledge Cards. Thank you for responding to the grace of God in your life.
