ANNUAL EVENTS

Our congregation looks forward to a number of yearly events that complement our worship and help us to celebrate with our church family. A Low Country Boil is held at the end of each summer, where we enjoy delicious food together in a relaxed atmosphere. At that time, we recruit for and share information about all of the various church ministries, and members have the opportunity to make a decision as to how they’d like to serve.

Soon thereafter, we celebrate the Eucharist outdoors at an annual parish picnic in beautiful Thomasville. In December, we all congregate for the Greening of the Church after services on the Sunday before Christmas. All generations join to place poinsettias around our altar, candles in all the windows, and wreaths around the sanctuary — a sight to behold.

Mardi Gras Dinner and Auction is a signature event for All Saints’, raising close to $60,000 each year in support of Thomasville agencies that work with families and children.

At Easter time, our church gathers for Maundy Thursday at a Passover Seder dinner, and on the Sunday that follows, parents and their children look forward to an Easter egg hunt, a longtime tradition of the church. On the day of our Mother’s Day service, we honor our mothers with gifts of flowers and follow the service with a champagne reception.
