Maintenance & Repair Duncan Hobbs, Ministry Head
The majority of upkeep, repairs, and improvements are completed by members of the Buildings & Grounds Ministry, with scheduled and as-needed maintenance projects. Skilled guidance is always available and volunteers are always welcome.
Landscape Workdays Duncan Hobbs, Ministry Head
Seasonal workdays include parishioners of all ages in tending our grounds, including the labyrinth. That includes pruning, planting, sweeping, mulching, weeding, drainage projects, and more.
Colin Clements built All Saints' prayer labyrinth in 2016 as his Boy Scout Eagle Project.
A winding path from edge to center and back again, the labyrinth is filled with twists and turns. We do not control the route. There is but one way in and out.
There are an infinite number of ways to pray a labyrinth. Take your time.
Some people focus on release of distraction and fear on the inward path, opening the heart and quieting the mind.
Centered, they pray, receiving God's grace.
On the outward path they are returning free of all that they have released and filled with what has been.
Some people recite a prayer or a piece of scripture as the walk.
Stop when you are ready to stop. Come back again and again.

Memorial Hall Modernization Gretchen Melburg, Ministry Head
Memorial Hall is being revitalized! New custom doors were installed in 2017. A beautiful new pergola was added, along with luxury vinyl tile flooring, new lighting and ceiling, and improved storage for our folding chairs all were added in 2018. Thanks, in part, to the proceeds of Sundae Serenade and Giving Tuesday, work will soon begin on landscaping and sidewalk access from Memorial Hall to our lawn area, which will connect Memorial Hall with the other buildings on the All Saints' campus.
Forrest Goehring Construction company installed the custom Sierra Pacific aluminum clad doors. A very special thanks to Kendall Pierson and Sierra Pacific for sponsoring these beautiful custom doors.
