    Welcome to All Saints Episcopal Church

     

    "All of our worship services have Holy Communion."
     
    Wednesday 12:10 - 12:50 P.M. – This service is for healing but it is also for those who work and need a noonday service that will allow them to return to work at 12:50 p.m. A bible study in Moses Hall precedes this service and lunch in Moses Hall at 1:00 p.m. follows this service September – May. 
     
    Wednesday 6:00 - 6:45 P.M. – This service is for parents who need a worship service while their children are in youth group, those who need a late day midweek service after work, and those who enjoy a service before attending the Wednesday evening classes at 7:00 p.m., September - June. This service follows the evening meal, August - May.   
     
    Saturday 4:00 - 4:45 P.M. – This is a quiet meditative service with organ music which meets the needs of those who work on the weekend, those who need another choice for a brief service later in the day, and those with medical problems and the time is convenient. It is also helpful to those who will be traveling or those with family, personal, or business arrangements on Sunday.

    Sunday 8:50 - 9:50 A.M. – This service has a procession and music from the pianist, organist, and song leaders. The popular Celebration Hymnal is used to meet the needs of those who enjoy lively and upbeat music with a more contemporary feel, mixed with old favorite hymns. Youth often sing at this service. One may also enjoy breakfast before or after this service, September - May. Sunday School for all ages follows this service at 10:00 a.m.
     
    Sunday 10:50 - 11:50 A.M. – This service has a full procession and music led by the adult choir, choral director Dr. Larry Sledge, supported by the parish organist. At this service, we use the Episcopal Hymnal. Sunday School precedes this service at 10:00 a.m. 
     
     
     
  • Guest Services Church Lakeland Florida

    We believe our visitors are our honored guests. If you would like a tour of the church during your visit, please let the clergy know ahead of time when you’ll be visiting and they’ll make an appointment after worship to give you a tour of the church and introduce you to our family.
     
    When you enter our church for worship you will be greeted by one of our Stewards (ushers) and they will give you a worship bulletin and answer your questions. If you would like more information about our parish, they have guest material they can give you.
     
    We have a Welcome Center with a Coffee Bar. If you are interested, please ask for directions to it. Here you will find fresh coffee and you will be able to socialize with our family. Sunday visitors may also enjoy breakfast, September - May, from 8:15 - 10:15 a.m.
     
    As you enter our sanctuary, you will experience an atmosphere of beauty and reverence. Episcopal churches are built in many architectural styles; but large or small, elaborate or plain, your eye will be drawn to the altar and historical stained glass windows. Your emotions and thoughts will be taken at once to God in this ambiance of holiness.
     
    We observe the traditional Christian worship seasons - Advent, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost. Our sanctuary allows you to experience many worship arts, particularly the radiant colors of these changing holy seasons in which time is sanctified.
     
    All Saints' worship involves the congregation. In the pews, you will find the Book of Common Prayer, the use of which enables the congregation to share fully in worship. We also have Bibles in the pews for study and reflection.
     
    As a liturgical church, you may wonder when to stand, sit, and kneel. A general rule is that we stand to sing, to say the Creed and for the reading of the Gospel. We sit during anthems, readings of the Bible, and the sermon. We kneel for prayer as an act of humility before God. Some Episcopal congregations stand for prayer. You are free to stand for prayer at All Saints', if that is your tradition.
     
    Our main worship is the Holy Eucharist, which means 'thanksgiving', thus the central focus of Episcopal worship is the altar, the saving work of Christ.
     
    While parts of the service are always the same, others change. At Holy Eucharist, for example, Bible selections are read. These change each Sunday, as do the psalms. Certain prayers also change according to the worship season. Page numbers for parts of the service are printed in the worship bulletin you receive from the Steward.
     
    Following worship, the clergy will greet you as you depart. Be sure to let them know if you are a guest. Refreshments are served on most Sundays at the entrance after the 10:50 a.m. worship service.
  • Our Beliefs

     

    Our Values

    Lakeland is a beautiful community located between Tampa and Orlando. We believe that God has assigned a unique role to All Saints’ Episcopal Church. All Saints' is located in the historical district and we keep the spiritual heart of downtown Lakeland.
     
    The central value of All Saints’ Episcopal Church is to make an impact on the world with the message of Jesus Christ. In Romans 1:16, Paul says, “I am not ashamed of the message of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” At All Saints’ Episcopal Church, we believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the only thing that can transform and sustain a person's life and lifestyle. Our church is dedicated to presenting this message, so that every person is given a chance to understand it and believe it.
     
    In order to accomplish this core value, All Saints’ Episcopal Church must be the kind of parish that God can use to make a difference in the heart of Lakeland by being aligned with God's vision for us.
     
    Our Culture

    The people who make up our family come from all walks of life, from corporate to homeless, and they represent many ethnic backgrounds. Many have recently moved here, while others are multi-generational. All are treated equally. The people of All Saints' are also from many political and church persuasions, yet we live in peace. We do that because our core value is based on what God wants for us in His Word. This means we are an orthodox congregation.
     
    Our Mission

    We are a family called to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to maintain the worship of God, and to inspire in all persons a love for Christ, a passion for righteousness, and a consciousness of their duties to God and their fellow human beings. We pledge our lives to Christ and covenant with each other to demonstrate His Spirit through worship, witnessing, and ministry to the needs of the people of this church, Lakeland, Central Florida, and the world.
