Share your talents in one of these volunteer ministries:
Food Pantry -
All Saints’ Pantry grew out of the needs of people in our neighborhood who have a place to live with facilities for storing and cooking, but have an unexpected need to stretch their food supplies for a few more days. Thanks to the efforts of our volunteers, our pantry has grown to serve as many as 255 different families and individuals in a month, some more than once, with food for three meals per day for three days. We are “open" Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The food pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers, and we can always use an extra hand. The Food Pantry is funded entirely by donations, not the Church budget. Our participation in the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank helps us stretch our dollars much further. If you would like to help, please contact Marilyn at 760-726-4280.
Blessings in a Bag -
Blessings in a Bag is a lunch bag filled with non-perishable food for homeless individuals. We carry them with us in our cars to provide a much needed meal to those we encounter as we go about our business. These bags also include utensils, a reusable cup, and wet wipes, along with an information card listing local resources for further assistance. Currently, we gather once a month after Sunday services to fill 80 bags with donated food, and we seldom have bags left at the end of the month. If you would like to help with food items, please contact Mimi Loutrel at firstname.lastname@example.org
Altar Guild - Ann Gregg
Preparing the altar for services is an important function of any church, and our Altar Guild is proud to serve All Saint's in this ministry. Arriving before each service, the Altar Guild sets the altar and the sacristy for all events during every season.
Prayers & Squares -Karen Knieff
Our Prayers and Squares ministry produces Prayer Quilts for those needing the prayers our our congregation. Each quilt is handmade and each is adorned with "Prayer Threads" sewn by members
of our congregation. Quilts are displayed at Sunday service and congregants are invited to say prayer for the intended recipient and the quilts are hand delivered.
Meals with Love - Cathy Vaughn
The Meals with Love program prepares meals daily for those who are homebound and find it difficult to prepare meals themselves. Often, these are people who are just back from a hospitalization and are recovering at home. Drivers meet at the church each morning to pick up meals and deliver them to homes in our area.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors -
Our team of LEV's bring the Holy Spirit and provide a Eucharistic service to members of our congregation unable to attend services at the church. These visits include communion and reading from our Sunday Bulletin. Being part of this ministry is truly rewarding for both the member and the visitor.
