What to Expect
We don't have a regular church building
Because people matter to us more than fancy buildings we meet in a handicap accessible office park. Handicap parking places are available right outside our front door (and we have two handicap accessible all gender bathrooms in our space.)
Parking is available along the front of the building. On Sundays All Saints is the only one using the office complex so park wherever you like. If you see signs that say "authorized vehicles only" know that you are an authorized vehicle!
How long are the services?
The 9:30am Sunday service at All Saints lasts around 1 hour. Other services may run shorter.
Should I bring my Bible?
Just bring yourself. Everything you need, including Scripture readings, is in the service leaflet (and hymnal), which the greeter will give you.
What should I wear?
You will find people dressed very casually (jeans, shorts, t-shirts, etc.), and more formally (though no one is very formal), and a great variety in between. Just be yourself.
Where should I sit?
Sit wherever you are comfortable. Make yourself at home. If you look lost someone will probably offer to help you follow the service, it is OK to decline!
What will the service be like?
You might be surprised the first time you visit at All Saints. We aren't your typical Episcopal Church.
There is rarely silence before the service. We love to laugh, and we don't take ourselves too seriously (especially our clergy.)
You will find that we sing loudly, and joyfully, if not always accurately. And it is OK if you want to remain quiet during the songs or prayers and let the congregation carry you in worship.
Sharing of the Peace at All Saints is joyful and a little bit chaotic. If you are overwhelmed just sit down and observe, we've all been there.
Can I bring my children to church services?
Children are welcome and active participants in all All Saints liturgies. Activity bags for younger children are available at the back of the church. All Saints enjoys having children enliven our worship. While we don't all have children (or grandchildren) of our own, we welcome the sound of God's littlest. Don't fuss if your child is wiggly or makes noise, we believe that the liturgy is for all God's people! (Someone, maybe even the preacher, will be happy to make silly faces with them.)
Can my children receive communion?
Children are welcome to receive communion.
How about a map?
It can be a little tricky to find the entrance to our parking lot! It is almost immediately North of the intersection with NE 12th Street on 120th Ave NE. The entrance into the parking lot is before our building. Look for a moveable All Saints sign by the drive. Turn in, and look to your right. You'll see a number of cars parked in front of the building, you have found us!
Remember, we don't meet in a traditional church building, you aren't in the wrong place.
If you miss the parking lot entrance you can turn around in the Audi dealer just North of us. There is also a back entrance to the parking lot located off NE 12th St.
