“To those of us who believe that all of life is sacred, every crumb of bread and sip of wine is a Eucharist, a remembrance, a call to awareness of holiness right where we are.” —Shauna Niequist, Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table
What is Xeno Café?
“Xeno” is short for Xenophilia, a Greek word meaning love of strangers or guests, often translated as “hospitality.” Xeno Café is All Saints’ service project with Foundation Communities where we provide and share a meal with our neighbors in need.
All Saints is committed to serving at least one dinner per month, led by rotating ministries but open to anyone in our church family. The time commitment is around 2 hours.
How can I serve?
Adults, families, teens, and children old enough to help are welcome to serve. We can have 8-15 volunteers per meal.
We will bring, serve, and eat a meal with residents at Skyline Terrace. Foundation Communities is working to promote community and healthy nutrition through this family-style meal and time of fellowship. We aim to grow in Christ, and share the love of Jesus through service.
Skyline Terrace is located at 1212 W. Ben White Blvd, 78704.
What is Foundation Communities?
Foundation Communities is a local nonprofit organization committed to providing long-term affordable housing and supportive services to low-income families and individuals.

They often depend on these meals (they call supper clubs) for healthy food and to stretch their budget through the month. More at foundcom.org.
