Music at All Saints

Music at All Saints is a staple of our common liturgy and life together. We glorify God through beautiful organ, choral, and guitar music each Sunday and during special services throughout the church year.

Our talented organist, Joshua Mauldin, leads the 8 o’clock service in singing hymns and provides offertory music. In addition to the worship hymns on organ and piano, at the 9’oclock family service, Mr. Mauldin leads the children in a sing-along accompanied by guitar.

The All Saints Choir sings at the 11 o’clock Sunday service of Holy Eucharist. The choir is a blend of amateur singers and professionals who rehearsal together Tuesday evenings at 7:30 in the sanctuary (701 Washington Street). In addition to their singing of the Sunday liturgy, the choir also sings at community services for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, evening services during the seasons of Lent and Advent, and the Great Vigil of Easter. If you have an interest in joining the choir or otherwise contributing to the music at All Saints, please contact, Organist Choir Master, Joshua Mauldin.

Too Often, God, Your Name Is Used

Too Often, God, Your Name Is Used
Too often, God, your name is used to sanction hate and fear
so love and justice are refused to people you hold dear.
O never let us use your name to harm or hurt or kill
or consecrate a vicious aim as your almighty will.
But move through us in deeds that spell your name as Love and Light,
for faithful actions far excel beliefs that we recite.
Let naming you through how we live become our public creed:
the clearest witness we can give is meeting human need.
And keep us ready to receive the good that others do,
that helps expand what we believe and why we trust in you.
For where deep love and justice meet we see anew your face
and for a moment glimpse complete the world transformed by grace.
That vision opens wide the church to look beyond its walls,
to honor all who ask and search for where your Spirit calls.
Their questions and their wondering help us more fully claim
our mission as an offering that glorifies your name.
