Refugee Ministries is rooted in the transforming relationships that develop between All Saints’ members and families that have had to flee their homelands due to war.
Serving, Inside and out.
All Saints' is committed to community — both our community and the community we share with our neighbors. We have tons of volunteer opportunities happening all the time. Join us in serving with and among our neighbors as we seek to follow Christ where steeple meets street.
Current Opportunities to Serve
Serve as an Usher During the 11:15 a.m. Services on Sundays
The usher ministry invites volunteers to serve as friendly faces and provide a warm welcome to all who enter our church doors. Our ministry is one of hospitality and assistance to all worshipers, giving extra attention and help to visitors and those with special needs. As a team, ushers distribute bulletins, collect offerings, provide attendance counts and guide worshipers to communion. Each 11:15 usher team serves a month at a time, for four months during the year. If interested and have questions, please contact Charlie Rigby. We look forward to serving with you!
Donate Vases to the Sunday Callers
The Sunday Callers invite donations of vases. The preferred size is 8-10 inches tall, with a pinched mouth. Clear glass is preferred over colored glass. Please no bud vases! If you are unable to drop them off at the church, please call Ellen Porter at 404-909-2408 to arrange a pick up.

Midtown Assistance Center (MAC)
Create Greeting Cards
MAC invites volunteers to create greeting cards for their clients. Right now, their office remains closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so they’re helping clients by mailing gift cards. The gift cards are placed inside greeting cards with handwritten notes that add a personal touch; several clients have said how much those notes mean to them. MAC sends out about 10-15 cards each weekday, so they could really use our help in writing cards!
To participate, you can buy greeting cards in bulk from a retailer or make them yourself. Please write a kind message inside, include an inspirational quote, or both. Sign them with your first name or something like “your friend at MAC.” Please mail the cards to Midtown Assistance Center at: 30 Porter Place, Atlanta, GA 30308, or, if you live in town, you can arrange a porch pick up with Ciara Castenell, Partnerships Director. For more information, please contact .
