All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS
From the Rector:
Alicia and I had a wonderful time this past week. We missed you though and are glad to be home. There are several upcoming events which I hope you will join us for.
Episcopal Tailgating will resume this week on October 14th. Whether you are a fan or not, come and join. We normally begin two hours before kickoff. This week we will gather at 10:00 in the Garnet section across from the baseball field. Look for the Episcopal flag and the PC flag on the back of my truck. Hot dogs, chips and drinks are on the menu.
This coming Sunday we will have Peter Hobbie begin a 5 week series of Christian Formation classes. I hope you will plan to join us this Sunday at 9:30am.
Also, this Sunday 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.
I continue to give thanks to God for All Saints and each of you. C+
