OUTREACH & PARTNERSHIP PROJECTS
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." -- 1 Peter 4:10
Members of All Saints' are committed to serving the community through a variety of programs and partnerships with other organizations. A number of grants fund many of the family-oriented activities that are offered free to the community. There are also opportunities for local businesses and groups to rent the premises for their classes and special events.
LAUNDRY LOVE KAUAI: 1st & 3rd Thursdays | 12:00PM - 3:00PM
All Saints' offers our LAUNDRY LOVE ministry packets on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 12:00 AM - 3:00 PM, in conjunction with Project Vision's Mobile Showers at All Saints' Church. Those needing assistance will be provided a bag with a roll of quarters, laundry detergent pods, and dryer sheets.
All Saints’ launched Hawaii’s first Laundry Love program in June 2015. At the time, volunteers were called upon to assist patrons with loading, transferring, and folding their laundry, while “talking story” and building relationships at the Kapa'a Laundromat. With the onset of COVID-19 in 2020, the ministry ceased and recently restarted with a change in operations, and now provides all materials necessary for folks to do their own laundry.

THANKSGIVING COMMUNITY MEAL
*MODIFIED DUE TO COVID
Due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, meals have been packaged for pick-up at All Saints' and delivered meals arranged through Kapa'aa Hongwanji Mission
For over 20 years, the Kapa'a Interfaith Association (KIA) has served up and delivered thousands of turkey meals on Thanksgiving Day each year. The annual luncheon, held in the All Saints' Gym, is preceded by an interfaith service in the church, led by most of the priests from participating churches that include All Saints' Episcopal Church, St. Catherine's Catholic Church, Kapa'a Hongwanji Mission, Kapa'a Seventh Day Adventist Church, Kapa'a United Church of Christ. Each year, funds are raised to purchase the food and supplies, and Mark Oyama and his crew from Contemporary Flavors donate their time to prepare and plate the food. Home deliveries to the elderly and shut-ins are available with advance notice, and are dispatched between 11:00 am - 12:00 noon. All the churches take part in the organization and implementation of this event which makes set-up and breakdown quick and easy. The youth from the different churches also play a role, serving guests food and beverages and bussing tables. Home-style entertainment takes place throughout the lunch.
