THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
During the season of Lent, we continue our weekly Evening Prayer services followed by a light supper shared with Epiphany in Laurens. Wednesday, March 7th we will meet here at All Saints at 6:00 pm. I hope you will join us.
This Sunday, March 11th will be the last forum class of “the Episcopal Church…..what is it?”. On the 25th (Palm Sunday), the bishop will host an open forum at 9:30 so please make every effort to join us as he speaks on diocesan efforts and answers questions.
Our third Film & Theology presentation is rapidly approaching. Next Sunday, March 18th, we’ll show the movie “Babette’s Feast” at 5:00 pm in the parish hall. This time we will make it a covered dish. No sign up necessary – just bring either an appetizer, main or side dish, dessert, snack or drink to share.
Finally, don’t forget DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME begins this Sunday, March 11th
