Who We Are

Welcoming all to transformation in Jesus Christ through prayer, learning, service and connection.

Welcoming all . . .

We welcome all to All Saints’ Episcopal Church. Here you will find a diverse community: conservatives and liberals, seniors and young families, gays and lesbians, singles and those in committed partnerships, from different economic and cultural backgrounds. How do we maintain this “Big Tent” in such polarized times? We are non-partisan, respect the dignity of every person, and practice a centrist tradition of the Gospel that binds us together, following Jesus Christ according to the Episcopal middle way.

Children, youth and families are integral to our church. The nursery is available for infants through age four from 8:30am to 12:30pm on Sunday mornings. Licensed and experienced caregivers are committed to providing a safe, clean, loving, and playful environment for babies and young children. Children’s Chapel is every Sunday for children ages 4 and up during the 9:00am service (10am in the summer). Clergy, staff, and volunteers help children explore the meaning of the day’s Gospel lesson, with prayers and singing. Parents are always welcome in Children’s Chapel! Everyone returns to the main church at the Peace so that families can receive communion together. Every Sunday at 10am, clergy, dedicated volunteers and children gather for age-specific Christian education.

to transformation in Jesus Christ . . .

We strive to follow the example and teaching Jesus Christ as his disciples in all we do, growing more and more into people of faith, hope and love, nourished by God’s Word and Sacraments.

through prayer . . .

Our worship is according to the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, and comes from a tradition that combines the best of Catholic and Protestant elements. Although our worship varies from small, daily services to large, festive gatherings, in general it is reverent, encouraging, and according to the patterns of the ancient Church. We take our worship seriously, but that doesn't mean we are stuffy. Wear what is comfortable for you, and expect friendly smiles from clergy and members alike.

We are known for some of the finest traditional music in the Valley, and we commit ourselves to offering our very best in the worship of God. Our choirs provide beautiful Anglican music for our Sunday 9am and 11am services, as well as our monthly Choral Evensong on the second Sunday of the month (October through April) and at Compline on the third Thursday of the month (September through March).

learning . . .

We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit. We offer fine Christian education for our youngest to our seniors. To learn more about the faith, whether in a class or a group, or through a sermon, helps us see our daily lives through the lens of faith. All Saints’ is also blessed with a wonderful day school of some 500 students in grades Pre-K through 8. To find out more about our school, please visit www.aseds.org.

service . . .

When we pray and learn, we are nourished and empowered to live out our faith in the world around us. We offer dozens of opportunities to serve those in need at our church and in the community at large. Some of these are official ministries, like our pastoral care, and partnerships with ICM Food and Clothing Bank and St. Paul’s Church and School in Haiti. But often our most effective service is in our daily life, as God places us in environments where we can make a difference.

And connection.

It can be hard to follow Jesus as a disciple. What really helps build our character is to have friendships with those who encourage us in our Christian lives. We offer a variety of ways to connect with fellow members at All Saints’. Christian community gives us a place to share our joys and our sorrows. We are here for each other, and we love to have fun together.

Leadership View all

The Rev. Poulson Reed

The Rev. Poulson Reed

Poulson Reed was called as rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Day School in June of 2009 and began in August of that year. As rector, he is the spiritual leader of both church and school. He works closely with the church Vestry, staff, day school Board of Trustees, Head of School, and many volunteers and committees. With our other leaders, Father Reed sets and articulates the vision for All Saints’, encouraging and equipping our community for ministry that makes a difference. He has a passion for our rich Anglican tradition, and for inviting others into discipleship: deepening our relationship with Christ through the ancient practices of praying, learning, serving and connecting. He especially loves liturgy for all ages, church music, teaching the faith, and pastoral care. Before coming to All Saints’, Father Reed served at Saint John’s Cathedral in Denver for more than seven years as a canon, and eventually as Sub-Dean. At Saint John’s, he helped found an alternative, seeker-friendly Sunday evening Eucharistic community called “The Wilderness,” and worked with the Sudanese community as they became a special congregation of the diocese and a Jubilee ministry. Father Reed graduated from an Episcopal school, St. Christopher’s in Richmond, Virginia. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Virginia, and he attended seminary at Yale Divinity School. He is married to Megan Reed, a classically trained tuba player and teacher. They have two boys, David and Thomas.
