All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS
From the Rector:
Our first Film and Theology is scheduled this Thursday night the 28th. I invite you to join us at 7:00pm in Neville Hall auditorium on PC’s campus as we watch Cool Hand Luke and discuss theological themes.
Episcopal Tailgating will resume October 14th.
This Sunday, our formation program begins at 9:30 with Sam Wilson presenting his work “All Saints History and Archives”. I hope you will all take a look at our Hall of Saints and the amazing work that Sam is doing in caring for our legacy. One of the things that will be a highlight for the hall is the bell. Originally located in the church, Howard has designed and built a remarkable stand which will allow us not only to honor its place in our history but will allow us to move it and use it in our common life.
Sunday, October 15th at 4:00 pm we will have a Blessing of the Animals in recognition of St. Francis. Please let your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers know about this as it is open to all. If you would like a poster/flyer to hand out, let me know.
The next Newsbytes will be delivered on Monday, October 9th. I will be away beginning this Friday, September 29th thru Sunday, October 8th. The Reverend Charles Davis (my dad) will celebrate and preach the next two Sundays. He also will be leading our Christian formation program on the 8th.
I’ve just finished clergy conference and been reminded that all are welcome to join in our Diocesan Leadership Day, Friday, November 3rd at Episcopal Church of the Advent in Spartanburg. It will be a good day where leaders throughout the diocese gather to learn and work together. If you are interested in going with Alicia and me, please let me know so that our registrations will be complete.
Finally, please check to see if you have any of the church’s tablecloths at home and return them so we can get a complete inventory of what we have.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers while I’m away.
