All Saints Lutheran Church

2 San Marin Drive, Novato, CA 94945

When are the services?

All Saints holds one worship service every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m., with additional services at Christmas and Easter. During the seasons of Christmas and Easter (Advent and Lent) we also worship on Wednesday evenings.

What does worship at All Saints look like?

A typical Sunday morning will see about 80 individuals, young and old, boisterous and quiet, all joining together to worship God with song, prayer, Bible reading and a message from the pastor, and a communion meal around the alter.

What is communion?

Communion is also called Eucharist. It is a meal of specially blessed bread and wine, which we believe contains the body and blood of Jesus. This meal is offered to all who accept Jesus as the risen Christ.
Communion is offered at all Sunday services and at most special services throughout the church.

How long do services typically last?

Services usually last an hour, plus or minus. Fellowship, coffee and snacks follow the service.

What is the dress code?

Most of our worshipers wear casual business attire to worship. A few wear dresses, shirts and ties, yet we will welcome you with “shoes and shirts.”

What if I arrive late?

Empty seats are always available at the back of the sanctuary. Worshipers have been known to arrive in the middle of the service. Late comers will be greeted by an usher, and asked only to come in quietly.

How do I follow the order of service?

The entire worship service, including all spoken sections, hymns and instructions for standing and sitting are written in the worship bulletin given to you by an usher when you arrive.
