Fort Bend Family Promise was created to provide shelter, meals, and comprehensive support to families without homes. All Saints provides accommodations and meals for three to five families (up to 20 people) for one week, every two to three months. To volunteer, or to find out more about this important ministry, please contact the Church Administrator.
Emily’s Pantry distributes food on the 4th Sunday of each month, from 1:00 to 3 p.m. in the Education Building. This ministry is timely for families who require assistance to carry them over until their next payday. Volunteer opportunities and training are available for intake processing, directions, and filling grocery bags. Contributions may be dropped off Tuesday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-3 pm. Feel free to join us on Sundays to learn more about the pantry ministry. Please contact the Church Administrator for information or to drop-off donations.
Water Bottle Ministry
The water bottle ministry assists the homeless population by offering a snack with scripture attached. As the homeless population continues to increase, members take bottles with them after church and give them to anyone they see at stoplights asking for help. Donations of bottled water and boxes of individual crackers may be dropped off at the church. Members prepare the water bottles with the crackers after church service. This ministry is coordinated by Debbie Sansom.
LAY EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS
Lay Eucharistic Ministers support daily worship services and assist the priest in administering the sacrament of Holy Communion. LEMS may also take the sacraments to those who are homebound, sick, or unable to attend services in person. They may also assist in reading the lessons and are licensed by the diocese to lead morning and evening prayer. This ministry is coordinated by Elizabeth Pilgrim.
The Greeters offers hospitality to visitors and guests who attend our services. Our team is stationed at the entry doors and guests are offered a nametag. We also invite guests to the parish hall after church for fellowship and conversation. As we fellowship, we introduce our guest(s) to our priest and other members and provide an online visitors’ card for follow-up by the priest.
We hope you will come and join us! This ministry is coordinated by Mary Bounds.
The ushers work to ensure worship services run smoothly. Prior to the service, bulletins and prayer books are distributed and the ushers greet each attendee with a smile and a welcome card. During the service ushers identify guests for the rector to welcome to the church and are also responsible for the attendance count, the offering and assist in directing members to the altar for communion. Ushers generally serve one Sunday a month, and on 5th Sundays. They also serve at funerals, weddings and memorial services held at the church. This ministry is coordinated by Glenna Thomas.

All members of The Order undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating a Rule of Prayer and Rule of Service. Members attend the annual Spring Assembly and host a DOK Quiet day each year. Meetings are held monthly, except during the months of June and July. This ministry is coordinated by Mary Bounds.
