We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally

THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
You are all in my prayers and I miss you. This week we will begin online services. Our first service of Morning Prayer will be Sunday, March 29th to begin at 10:30. The site to join the service is www.facebook.com/allsaintsclinton.org. You do not have to sign on or sign up to join the service. This is a new experience for All Saints’. If you have any questions about how to connect please let me know. I hope you will set the time aside so we can be still be connected while physically separated.
Please stay in contact with each other. If you worry about someone, call and check on them. The vestry will continue to reach out to all of you as well. If there is a concern or someone you know who needs something, please let me know.
On a different subject, we hope to begin work soon on capital improvements. The first project will be a much-needed lift beside the steps going into the church. You should see work on this project beginning soon. A letter will be sent out soon letting you know all that is planned and all that we hope to do to continue to make welcoming at All Saints’ a priority.
*Please remember to bring nonperishable food anytime to fill the baskets for United Ministries! Our donations have decreased somewhat so a gentle reminder to all. The baskets are blessed at the altar on the second Sunday of the month and then delivered.
