All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
This year our bishop’s visit to All Saints will be on Palm Sunday, March 25th. With his visit comes an opportunity for Baptism, Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation of our Baptismal Vows. Our formation class will be both an opportunity for us to learn about the Episcopal denomination as well as prepare anyone who would like to be confirmed or reaffirm their baptismal vows. I have titled the class “the Episcopal Church……What is it?” If you know anyone interested in learning more about the church and All Saints’, please invite them! This class is for all as we learn together about the peculiarities of our denomination. I hope you will come with your questions.
One of the events for the season after Epiphany will take place on January 14th at 5:00 pm in the Parish House. We will be watching the award winning documentary “Searching for Sugar Man”. I hope you will come. We’ll have chili with all the fixings and drinks for supper. For comfort you might want to bring a pillow or lawn chair as we gather to examine this film and this season. I hope this will be an opportunity for you to bring someone. Look around. There may be someone who does not go to church or who does not have a church. This would be a great opportunity to invite them to come and join in a wonderful evening.
