All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Our Annual Parish meeting is this Sunday, January 27th directly following the 10:30 service. We’ll have an “amplified” coffee hour that day as well. New vestry members will be elected, and we’ll honor those finishing their terms. I also want to thank all who have turned in their pledge cards this year. This helps the vestry better prepare for the coming year as will be discussed in the meeting Sunday. Please make every effort to attend on this important day.
Also, giving statements for the year 2018 are available. They will be in the back of the church for you to pick up.
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.
