THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
A reminder to look for your pledge cards in the mail. They were mailed out last week and if you haven’t received your letter, please let us know by calling the church office or emailing Alicia at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you will prayerfully consider your pledge and either mail it back or place in the offering plate by Sunday, Dec. 1st so the vestry can begin to plan for 2020. Also, please remember the most important part of your stewardship is to be present on Sundays. It is an outward and visible sign of God’s grace working in and through you.
This past Sunday evening we enjoyed a wonderful experience with almost 20 PC students along with members of All Saints’ gathered for Film & Theology. It was a great movie with excellent conversation as we enjoyed supper together. Thank you to all who came and participated and to Dean Thompson for this wonderful evening.
Please keep in your prayers our upcoming Diocesan Convention on November 8th and 9th. Your delegates and I will be with churches throughout the diocese. It’s an important time and a reminder of how we are connected to the larger church.
This Sunday we begin our Inquirer’s class at 9:30 am in the Christian formation room. We will begin with the Baptismal Covenant.
Lastly, a flyer is attached with information about Good Shepherd Free Medical Clinic’s 25th Anniversary and Celebration fundraiser which will be on Friday, Nov. 15th. All are welcome to buy a ticket and attend.
Don’t Forget – this Saturday night, turn clocks BACK one hour.
