Outreach All Saints Episcopal Church
All Saints Episcopal Church is a small parish with a lot of heart. Our church family believes that we each come to the table with our own unique gifts, and that it is through the sharing of these combined gifts that we make God’s love known throughout our community.
FEEDING THE HUNGRY
On September 5th, All Saints Episcopal Church hosted a Serving Spoon meal to feed the hungry in Macon County. The event was held at the Town of Franklin's Memorial Jaycee Park building on West Main Street.
The Serving Spoon is a ministry of Macon New Beginnings to help lead our community's efforts in helping homeless and nearly homeless persons in Macon County.
If you would like to participate in this serving opportunity in the future, please contact Mary Guercio at (828) 371-4933.
LOVE FOR MONGOLIA
We have several ways for you to use your unique gifts to serve as well, such as offering your time and talents to one of our in-house teams like Altar Guild, Maintenance and Grounds, Hospitality, or of course, Outreach. We also offer individual “collection campaigns” each quarter, where we collect new back to school supplies for East Franklin School, gifts for our local Christmas Angel Tree families, or Socks, scarves and hats for our areas’ homeless population. Watch your e-news or contact Megan in the ASEC office to find out more about our most current in-house ministry efforts and outreach opportunities.
