About All Saints Lutheran Church
This is Christ’s church. There is a place for you here!
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person—questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
All Saints Lutheran Church is a parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches in America. This congregation was first organized when East Aurora was just fields and prairie dogs. The first building on site (our present friendship hall) was completed in June 1979. A second worship service was added in 1984. In 1996 several families of this congregation accepted the challenge to help start a new Lutheran congregation in Southeast Aurora. This new congregation (Lord of the Hills) is now a thriving congregation.
All Saints supports multiple outreach programs like Aurora warms the night and Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers from our congregation help provide meals and visitation to our Church Family. We also support several scout groups, and provide meeting space for a variety of community groups. In addition, we have active youth, music and adult programs. But our strongest suit is doing things to help those in need!
By now you have discovered that we are a liturgical church. Liturgy is the prayers, songs, and other sung responses that are used during the worship service. Using a liturgy helps us keep in touch with Christ’s church across the ages. All of the ingredients found in our services can be traced to the earliest worship experiences of the Christian church. If you get lost during a service, please feel free to ask for help!
