All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Each Wednesday during Lent we are gathering for Evening Prayer and a simple supper. We will join with Epiphany in Laurens for these services as we’ve done the last two years. Please join us. This week we are at All Saints’ beginning at 6:00 pm. Our very own intern, Mitchell Felton, will deliver the homily. Mitchell will also preach this Sunday as well. Please make every effort to be here to support Mitchell and welcome his friends and family to All Saints’.
Our Christian Formation class, studying significant shapers of Anglican spirituality continues with a discussion of Desmond Tutu led by Sam Wilson.
This Sunday, March 31st is our next Film & Theology event. The movie is the Academy award winning film, “Green Book”. We will begin at 5:00pm and follow with dinner and discussion. Dinner is provided. Please bring a guest with you!
Finally, we are answering the call from many of our parishioners for some form of a pictorial directory. Beginning this Sunday, Howard Pierce will be taking individual and family photos each Sunday after church in the narthex before coffee hour. These are not intended to be formal; they will be used to make an informal directory thorough our church software. Please make every effort to get your photo taken in the next few weeks.
