Parish Life Commission

Contact Stephanie Burk and Jerra Lewis.

The purpose of the Parish Life Commission is to help build and sustain a joyful, loving, and caring community of Christians in this place we know as All Saints’.

Those active in Parish Life feel especially called to assist in the welcoming of newcomers and in the promotion of fellowship among existing members of the parish family. The commission meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5:15 p.m. in the parlor.

Food preparation and service are chief among the passions of the creative and hard-working Parish Life volunteers.
Some of the yearly events for Parish Life include a breakfast/lunch served to our hard working volunteers during the fall and spring parish workdays, a lunch provided for our annual parish meeting, and several newcomer coffees given throughout the year for our newest members.
Parish Life gives all the beautiful receptions for the organ recitals offered during the year.

Parish Life is also especially active during the holiday seasons.  Easter day is full of activities and the commission sponsors the Easter Hoppening lunch.  Parish Life helps with the fun festivities during the Halloween Fall Festival.  The commission also participates in the Thanksgiving Feast which provides a Thanksgiving meal first to our shut-ins and then the parish.  During the Christmas season Parish Life provides refreshments for those who go Christmas caroling to the parish’s shut-ins, and the commission also provides a lovely reception for our Christmas concert.

Parish Life also extends hospitality to All Saints’ Episcopal School for the kindergartners and their families at a fun reception following a special Matriculation service which takes place at the beginning of the school year.  The commission also provides a lovely reception for the school’s seniors and their families after the Baccalaureate service which takes place at school’s year end.

As you can see Parish Life is a very active commission and we welcome you to be a part of this special ministry at All Saints’.
