All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
What a wonderful time was had this past Saturday at the Oyster Roast! So many of you brought friends and members of our community to share in the fellowship of All Saints’. We couldn’t have done it without all of you. I especially want to give thanks for the leadership of Harry Sullivan and his team of fish fryers, Howard Pierce, and special thanks to members of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Spartanburg who helped steam oysters. But without the gifts and willingness of this parish from
servers, ticket takers and greeters to set-up and clean-up crews, this wonderful event could not have happened.
We’ll continue the fun with our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper coming up on Tuesday, March 6th at 6:00 pm. Please come and enjoy yourselves. Ash Wednesday Service will be at 6:00 pm the next day and another on the PC campus earlier at 4:30 pm. Please come!
This Sunday we continue with our Adult Formation class at 9:30 am. We are reading Glorious Companions: Five Centuries of Anglican Spirituality by Richard Schmidt. This week we are led by Neal Prater discussing the chapter on George Herbert. Please join us!
I will be away this Mon-Wed at Camp Gravatt with the Bishop and other clergy for Pre-Lenten retreat. I will be available if any pastoral emergencies arise. I continue to pray for each of you. May God bless our work, and may we do his will as we seek to proclaim God’s unconditional love.
