Since 2012, All Saints Church has participated with Advent Conspiracy to radically counter our consumer mentality by ‘spending less and giving more.’ As a result, we have given $96,000 to organizations that are making Seattle better. This year, All Saints Church is partnering with World Relief Seattle to resettle an immigrant family here in Seattle.
I’d like to encourage you to click on the link above and see the work World Relief is doing. Because of all the fear and misinformation surrounding the immigration crisis in the U.S., we are hopeful that those who are within the reach of All Saints Church will join us in reaching our goal of $9,000. Incredibly, this money goes a long way!
- Airport reception
- Securing permanent housing, furniture and household items
- Obtaining basic necessities, including food and clothing
