August Happenings


Sunday worship at All Saints Lutheran Church is offered in-person at 10:00 am in the sanctuary. Anyone returning to school this fall plan to bring your backpacks this coming Sunday, August 22nd for a special blessing during children’s sermon time.

Masks are recommended inside the building due to the rise of COVID-19 cases in the area.

The worship service will continue to be live streamed on Facebook Live and later uploaded to YouTube if you prefer to worship in your home.

Below are the helpers during worship for the next few weeks. If you can help where there are blanks, let the office know. It takes many people taking turns for worship and Sunday school to happen effectively.
