At All Saints we have taken to heart the biblical image of Christ as a shepherd and of the elders as undershepherds. In order to fulfill our calling to "shepherd the flock of God that is among you" (1 Peter 5:2), we place each of our members into a small group that includes an elder and deacon. These groups meet monthly for Christian fellowship, and the elder and deacon reach out regularly to each household to disciple and care for them. This also provides each of our members with an elder or deacon they can go to when they are in need or have questions about the life and ministry of our church body. In this way the elder and deacon are able to partner with the pastors to provide the best possible spiritual care to the congregation.
If you have any questions about our shepherding groups, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to help.
