All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS
From the Rector:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! PC Sunday was wonderful. For all who served to help make our worship beautiful and all who came together to make lunch such a success, it could not have been better. I believe we put our best foot forward for President Staton, his wife Phyllis, guest preacher Rachel Parsons-Wells, the students and our guests. We continue to give thanks to God for Presbyterian College and our ministry together.
Film and Theology, originally scheduled this Thursday night the 21st has been postponed until next Thursday night because of a scheduling problem. I invite you to join us next Thursday, September 28th at 7:00pm in Neville Hall auditorium on PC’s campus as we watch Cool Hand Luke and discuss theological themes.
Episcopal Tailgating will continue this week, September 23rd, as PC faces Cumberland University. Last week we had a good group gathered. The game begins at 7:00 and hotdogs with all the fixings will be ready beginning at 5:00. Bring a chair and come for music and great conversation.
Clergy Conference begins this coming Sunday afternoon. It will be for clergy and spouses. Alicia and I will be gone until Tuesday. Next week’s Newsbytes will come to you on Wednesday.
Wednesday, September 27th there will be a gathering at the Clinton Community Garden beginning at 6:00 pm. It will be an opportunity for our community to gather and give thanks for the bounty and service of this wonderful ministry. You are all invited.
Our Convocation gathers next Sunday. We will gather at The Church of the Redeemer in Greenville at 2:00.
I continue to give thanks for you and for all that we do together to God’s glory and to further his kingdom. Please continue to keep our parish and our mission in your prayers.
