IMPORTANT DATES FOR INCOMING MEMBERS
Why Join All Saints…
At All Saints we place a high emphasis on membership. In a local church body, membership is first and foremost an acknowledgment of our own sin and need for Christ, and resting upon him for salvation. Beyond that, it is a commitment to a particular branch of His body to establish community where we grow, struggle, and live life together with honesty and freedom. We invite you to grow in grace along with us as we seek to live as the body of Christ in Austin for the world through worship, spiritual formation, and service.
All About All Saints…
“All About All Saints” is a 4 week class taught by our pastors about reformed theological tradition, the basics of Christian orthodoxy, and particulars of the worship, life, and mission of All Saints. Each week covers different material, so plan to attend each class if you’re pursuing membership. Even if you’re not pursuing membership this is a great way to learn more about All Saints and a great time to candidly ask any questions you have.
Fall 2014 | 2 CLASS OPTIONS
