All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
We are ten days into the 50 days of Easter and I am still thinking of our glorious service and baptism. Thank you to all who helped make the day especially wonderful – our choir, altar guild, acolytes, ushers and many “behind the scenes” worker bees. This place is vibrant because of you all.
This week begins our spring Christian formation classes. Sam Wilson and Cindy Perry will lead this week and next Sunday I will lead a class in the Parish Hall on writing icons. As always, formation classes begin at 9:30 am. Another Film & Theology presentation is in the works with a time and date to be determined.
Please give a warm welcome back to Jim Nichols as our guest preacher and celebrant this Sunday. Alicia and I will be in Charleston where I am officiating a wedding on Saturday evening.
