Welcome to All Saints’– a family committed to embracing the Divine in all through experiencing and sharing the compassionate story of Jesus Christ.
We are deeply rooted in the beauty of the Episcopal tradition while open to innovative ways of experiencing God's presence in all sacred traditions. We are committed to prayer, to compassionate engagement with the world, to spiritual formation and to the spirit of inclusion. All Saints’ is a house of prayer for all God's people - and we warmly welcome your presence at any of our services, classes or events.
New series starts Sep 11: God and Science
Adult Formation Class: Don Weiner
Sundays 9:10-10:10 AM in the Library
Sep 11, 18, 25, Oct 2, 16, 23
This class will incorporate both teachings from mysticism as well as from science, including sections on emergence, self-organization to a higher state, consciousness, dualistic vs. a relational way of experiencing and perceiving reality, evolutionary spirituality, and constructing metaphors for understanding our spiritual journey. Come explore discoveries that until recently would seem to be science fiction. Be open to new possibilities in how you relate to the deeper reality which is known by many names.
The Practices: Diane Weiner
Mondays 6:00 PM in the Library
Sep 12, 19, 26, Oct 3, 17, 24
Now we test in our inner beings the ideas that both religion and science have brought us. We use meditation, breathing practices and visualizations to explore the common ground of truth that unfolds between teachings of God and science. It is helpful but not necessary to attend the class.

New Free Little Library Just for Kids
Have you noticed the new little library outside the church? It is our new Free Little Library just for Kids and it is filled with all kinds of picture and adventure books waiting to be read by a child or young person. It was designed and created by Chuck and Jan Hilton and has already had its first withdrawal. With school out for the summer, we are encouraging children and adults of all ages to use the “Free Little Libraries” here at All Saints’. So take a book to enjoy or bring a book to add to the library for someone else. Reading is a wonderful way to go on adventures to far off lands without ever leaving home.
One Wednesday - monthly first Wednesday interfaith gathering in silence - at 7pm
We gather in silence - without a leader other than our hearts. We pray or meditate in silence for 20-30 minutes. We depart in silence. This national project has the intention to invite people to gather in a church, synagogue, mosque, ashram, etc. each first Wedndesday of the month to spend 30 minutes in silence.
“Silence is the first language of God,” wrote St John of the Cross, “and it is the one language that needs no translation and allows all to be one.” http://onewednesday.org.
Our regular worship and class schedule:
8 AM - Holy Eucharist without music - upstairs nave
9:15-10:15 AM - Spiritual formation classes for all ages (Sep-May)
- Holy Eucharist enriched with music - upstairs nave
Tuesdays: 11:40 AM Mid-day Holy Eucharist and Public Healing Service - upstairs nave
Children's Chapel - We offer a Children’s Chapel during the Sunday 10:30 am service as an option, as children are warmly welcomed at all of our services. Children can gather before 10:30 in the downstairs Oratory for activities to further their understanding of that Sunday’s lessons. The children are returned to their parents during the passing of the peace. Families will remain together for Eucharist and the completion of the worship service. (During the summer break, our childcare providers will take over the summer version of this offering.)
