Our Services

What are services like?
All Saints' Church values traditional worship that involves the whole congregation - there is no audience ... it is not to entertain you. We worship God together and are strengthened and fed to live our Christian life throughout the week! Music is a vital part of our 11 a.m. service as it inspires our response to God with our lives. We value sharing communion weekly as a sacrament of unity in our diversity.

What is the community like?
The parish community is warm and welcoming! You will definitely have opportunities for formation, fellowship and service to our neighborhood and wider community. We care for one another deeply and try to model that care in our neighborhood. We are authentic and imperfect people, with a hearty sense of humor. We take God seriously - but ourselves? Not so much.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Seekers will find community and opportunities for formation, fellowship and service to our neighborhood and wider community. Jesus did not exclude anyone from fellowship. Why would we?

Stephen Cuff

A native of snowy Buffalo, New York, Fr. Steve received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo, majoring in Geography. Leaving his snow shovel behind, he began a career as a cartographer for a map company in Daytona Beach, Florida. Steve said, “I’ve always had a passion for traveling and maps, and the work gave me insight into what helps people get from point “A” to point “B.” Another blessing of those years in Florida was meeting his wife Beth, while they were both active in a local community theater. Beth, a native of Dayton, Ohio, had also moved to Florida for employment after graduation from college with her degree in Accounting. They were active in Episcopal parishes in the Daytona Beach area and fully immersed in parenting their two daughters, Lauren and Mary. God’s nudge toward ordained ministry and support from the parish and diocese had the Cuffs pull up stakes and head north: first to Nashotah House seminary in Wisconsin then on to the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, where Steve graduated in 1993. He served in the Diocese of West Virginia for the first six years after ordination: in Parkersburg and later Berkeley Springs. While in West Virginia, Fr. Steve discovered a joy in youth and camp ministry, which ultimately led him and his family to Southern Ohio in 1999 to lead our Diocesan Summer Camp at Procter Conference Center. Initially, that appointment was paired with service as Vicar with Saint Andrew’s Church in Washington Court House. Fr. Steve went “full-time” with Saint Andrew’s in 2002, until accepting a call to serve as Chaplain to the Episcopal Retirement Homes communities in Cincinnati the summer of 2007. Steve continues to cherish a relationship with our summer camping program at Procter. He completed the ministry at ERH and began as priest-in-charge at All Saints on April 1, 2013. To complete the “family portrait” Lauren and her husband Derick are both 2008 graduates of Wright State University and make their home and work in Fairborn, near Dayton. Mary and her husband Nick are both 2012 graduates of Ohio University and are making their home in Milwaukee
