We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally

THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS
From the Rector:
This Wednesday, November 29th, we will have Evening Prayer at 6:00 pm followed by supper in the parish hall. The Rev. Paul Abernathy will be preaching. These four Wednesdays in Advent as we prepare for the Incarnation are important in our corporate life. Please come. Also, I encourage you to bring a friend and make this holy time of anticipation special.
This Sunday we continue our series on Advent during Christian formation. We are looking at the theological and liturgical meanings of the season. The question we will be discussing is “Jesus is coming to your house at 3:14 on Sunday afternoon. What will you do to prepare for that visit?”
Our flower chart for 2018 is in the church and ready to be filled in. We still have a couple of slots left for December of this year. If you would like to give the flowers on December 10th or 24th, please let us know via email or a phone call.
