Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus, All Saints’ Church supports ministries that provide opportunities for our members to impact the community and world around us.
Serving over 300 youth (5th through 12th grade) in the Monadnock region, Avenue A is the teen component of the Grapevine Family & Community Resource Center. It is the only teen center in the region. A wide array of after school and evening programs and activities, led by adult volunteers, are offered to support teens in their personal and social development and creative expression. From woodworking to creative writing to cooking, music jams to yoga to art, volunteers share their passion with interested youth.
OUR MISSION IN JUAREZ
Our mission in Juarez supports the educational needs of children born in poverty. For the past 15 years, parishioners of All Saints' Church have been supporting children living in a home for abandoned children as results of the extreme poverty into which they were born in the City of Juarez, Mexico. We have done this financially, spiritually, and by visiting. Since 2019, our support has focused on supporting those children from the home who have exhibited a desire and ability to pursue higher education. There currently are 5 students living in a home, Casa Fe y Esperanza, and attending universities in both El Paso, Texas, and in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. During the pandemic, All Saints’ was able to provide 3 laptop computers to the students, as learning has become on-line. The gift of education is the one gift that can truly combat poverty.
Peterborough Food Pantry
Providing volunteers as well as food donations to the mission of the Peterborough Food Pantry, which serves 13 towns across the eastern Monadnock region, All Saints’ is the sponsor of the Hungry Students Program, coordinating with the schools and the Pantry to provide healthy snacks to students in 12 schools in 8 towns.
Eastern Monadnock Provider Network
This network, initiated by the River Center leadership in September of 2017, brings together social service providers across the region, for the purpose of coordinating efforts, educating the community and each other on available support resources, knowledge sharing, and communications to foster collaboration in tackling challenges facing the entire region.
Greater Peterborough Interfaith Council
The Interfaith Council works to increase understanding and appreciation of the various faiths in the eastern Monadnock region, and to find ways to work together on initiatives in line with our shared values such as hunger and social justice.
