All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS
From the Rector:
I hope everyone has seen the new sign in front of the parish house welcoming all PC students to All Saints. I’ve enclosed a photo of it for those who haven’t been by yet. Also, please look for Anna Shuford, our PC peer minister, at church and on campus this year. I look forward to working with her as we seek to engage new and wonderful ways for us to share our ministry with Presbyterian College.
Also, you should have received an email inviting you to join “Realm”, our church membership software. Please accept and then check your information for accuracy. If you have not received an email or if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
Please keep in your prayers Harriet McKee and her son, Ellis. Ellis died this past weekend. She and I will be preparing his service for later this week.
This Sunday, August 27th Alicia and I will be gone on vacation. We welcome Jim Nichols back to All Saints to celebrate and preach.
