All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
This week a letter and stewardship cards are being mailed. I hope you will prayerfully take time to fill in your card and return it to the church. Once all the cards have been received, the vestry and I will begin to make plans for the 2020 mission and ministry of All Saints’. What you pledge is important, but it is also an outward and visible sign of God’s blessings in your life. Make your pledge truly a gift and response to God.
This Sunday is our next Film & Theology Event. We will begin at 5:00 with the movie, “The Night of the Hunter”, a 1955 film starring Robert Mitchum. Dean Thompson’s film class will be joining us. Popcorn and drinks will be offered during the movie with a covered dish afterward. Please bring a dish that will serve yourself plus a few more to include the PC students.
May God continue to bless and keep us.
