Music & Arts

The Music & Arts Ministry exists to help the church and our city more fully and deeply know, worship, and serve God. Through nurturing fellowship, spiritual growth, service, and creative collaboration, our ministry also seeks to develop our community's artistic gifts and encourage loving engagement with the culture so that we may more truly reflect God's beauty and show His love in Christ to the world. From our weekly services to the concert series, art gallery, and the various creative and cultural events throughout the year, we offer a wealth of opportunities to enjoy, grow in, and share God's beauty, creativity, and goodness.

Current Show: Neighbors

Featuring Portraits by Kady Dunlap and personal stories from our friends and neighbors

Neighbors

Knowing | Loving | Serving

In Luke 10, Jesus tells a lawyer to love his neighbor as himself. But the lawyer, "desiring to justify himself," asks Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus responds with art, by telling a story of how a Samaritan proved to be a neighbor...

This show's mission is simply to follow Jesus' example, to share our neighbors' personal stories and selected portraits by Kady Dunlap as a way to know them more deeply and learn how to better love and serve them as ourselves. These neighbors are both members of All Saints and people from our local community, including our Latino neighbors, who God has created in His image, loved in Christ, brought into our community, and called us to love. We hope that by reading these stories and seeing these portraits, God will help us all to know our neighbors, to be known more deeply in community, and to love and serve each-other and all of our neighbors as Christ, the true Samaritan, did.

Cross and Culture Series

Cross & Culture Annual Series

As All Saints seeks to “live as the body of Christ in Austin for the world” we are continually asking how we are called to engage with the culture of which we find ourselves a part. The Cross & Culture series is a launching pad for thoughtful discourse on the dynamic and complex parts of our culture in which we participate daily, including everything from music and literature to movies and politics.

The topics and speakers selected each year help us to not only recognize Christ’s transforming presence at work in these aspects of our culture but, instead of simply navigating past them, to also participate in them more thoughtfully and faithfully.
