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
Worship, Pastoral Care, and Parish Life Ministries
Join the Welcome Team
Our Welcome Team invites new members to join our ministry of hospitality. The commitment is fun and easy: greeting parishioners and guests on Sundays and also during special events and services. We would love to have your smiling face as we welcome folks to our block! If you are interested, interested please contact Dan Pennywell >>
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!

Respite Care Atlanta (RCA)
Volunteer on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays
Looking for a fun, flexible and fulfilling volunteer job?! Come to Respite Care Atlanta! Respite Care Atlanta (RCA) is a program designed to provide joy filled care to those suffering from dementia and “respite” for the caregivers. All Saints’ is one of nine congregations who support it, and our own Martha Sterne was instrumental in getting it underway. All Saints’ has a list of wonderful volunteers, but we are looking for more to enable the program to grow to three days.
Housed at Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church at Peachtree and East Wesley, RCA currently serves “members” of Club RCA on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. With a very small professional staff, volunteers carry the program in varying shifts and roles. You can be a greeter, a lunch server, a program or exercise leader, help with arts and crafts, a member of the “goodbye” team or a companion for the duration. Hours and shifts vary, and the best is that it is so flexible. If you can’t come one week, you just don’t sign up. It is truly a joyful place!
Each volunteer must attend an hour long information session. Please contact Susan Virgin, Harriet Shaffer, and
Kinsey Harper to sign up or to receive more information >>
