All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
This Sunday is Pentecost. The reason we are here is the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is the gift from God that changed a group of scared followers of Jesus into the Church as we know it. It is God’s Spirit that caused them to not only unlock the doors, but open them. It is God’s Spirit that caused them to not only step out, but to burst out proclaiming a new message of hope and relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Church was founded this day and the world was changed forever. Please join us as we celebrate.
Also, our last Film & Theology event is this Sunday at 5:00 pm in the Parish Hall. We are showing the movie “St. Vincent”. We’ll have a pot luck supper afterward during our discussion. Please bring a meat, side or dessert to share. Popcorn and drinks will be provided.
