All Saints Lutheran Church is dedicated to the Accompaniment Model of Ministry. We seek to develop meaningful relationships with our Ministry Partners. Some of our key ministries are…
Ever been in a situation where you didn’t have food? Many of us have and many in our community are struggling with this right now. ASLC is a co-founder of this awesome ministry that helps in this way. This ministry also has a thrift store filled with reasonably priced, gently used items. All proceeds support their food ministry. Check it out online by clicking on the link.
Free Little Pantry
Are you able to help by bringing food to Church? Most of us are. If you do, we will use it to stock the Free Little Pantry on our church property. The Free Little Pantry is a place in this world where anybody, at any time, can come to and get something to eat. Hygiene products always welcome, too.
A Brighter Community “Brown Bags” is a 20-year ministry at ASLC. Each student at the downtown Tampa preschool receives a meal to take home on the weekends, which helps these low income families. We need organizers, food purchasers, packers, deliverers, and people who want to dream about how we might get even more involved. Learn more by clicking on the link.
Is giving a ‘hand up’ to people with disabilities more your style? That’s one of our ministries we support, too. Mr. Becki (Craig Forsell) is the head of YES! and a member of our congregation…he is always looking for help with this amazing ministry: Check it out online by clicking on the link. (This ministry has helped us to be proactive in making our events accessible and welcoming to people of various abilities – we project our worship in large easy to read font, we have large print bulletins, we offer hearing assist devices, etc.)
This is our autism ministry at ASLC. We host an annual autism walk on-site, and we are dreaming always about how we can continue to reach the autism community and include them in our community. Sound like fun? It is! (This ministry has deepened our awareness to the autism community and accommodations have and can be made so everyone can share in our worship, education, and fellowship, including those on the Autism Spectrum.)
Through the LWR ministry we pack school supply backpacks and have even bought entire ‘farms’ for needy communities around the globe. Our quilters and knitters benefit Lutheran World Relief (one of the highest rated charities in the world), and other charities. Click on the link to Learn more.
Want to get outdoors? I know I do! The camping ministries we are involved in at ASLC are only a couple hours away. We go at least once or twice a year as a community to serve and enjoy God’s creation. You are invited to go with us. Also, Luther Springs is open for whenever you just need/want a spiritual retreat. Learn more by clicking on the link.
Do you want to use your voice to help others? If so, the Advocacy Team is the place for you. We follow our Christian calling to speak out, to defend the rights of the poor and needy, and to be a voice for the voiceless. We advocate for policies that end injustice, oppression, and suffering. We use our voice to speak to political and economic power in order to effect changes toward restoring and reconciling our world. We are courageous, intentional, and goal-oriented.
Don’t see your favorite ministry on the list so far? Well come and share it with us. Once a month we invite people to ‘host’ a Second Sunday Meal to gather donation funds and share info about the non-profit ministries that are most important to them.
