The goal of the Women’s Ministry is for us to become more firmly and deeply rooted in Christ and fully participate in his mission to redeem his world. We do this by regularly making space for God to speak to us through his Word, his people, and his Spirit.
The women at All Saints are a diverse group, so our gatherings are also diverse! We meet at various times and locations around the city to study, pray, read, encourage and serve. We also gather to camp, hike, walk, run, cook, and eat good queso!
My hope is that every woman would find a place at All Saints that helps her make more space for God's presence in her life. My prayer is that Christ will continue to grow each of us in greater freedom, mercy, and joy, so that we might bear abundant fruit in his world.
"For He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:24)
- Kim Hall, Director of Women’s Ministry
Morning and Evening Gathering
A time for women to gather together, study the Word, and spend time discussing and praying in their small groups. Small groups will remain the same for the year, so that relationships have time to develop and deepen.
Join women of all life stages for a mid-week gathering (with an accompanying children's program) on Wednesday mornings 9:45 - 11:30 and evenings 6:30-8:00. This is a time for the women of All Saints to enjoy worship, large group teaching, mentoring, small group discussion, prayer, and fellowship.
