All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
With the celebration of Labor Day this past Monday, we begin our work together. Part of what we do to make a difference is the ministries we share. This Sunday, September 9th will be a day set aside to give thanks for our common ministry. Beginning at 9:30 until church begins and following, ministries will be highlighted in the Parish Hall. I hope you will take a look at all we do. I also hope you will find your place and share in our common work. Maybe it is something you have never done before or maybe it is something you have done in the past. Maybe you have an idea for a new way to minister in the name of Christ. There are so many wonderful things happening in this place. Please pray about where you fit in and what God is calling you to do as you witness to God’s redeeming love.
Please look ahead at all of the events coming up. I hope that you will join us for Film & Theology, Shag lessons and Episcopal tailgating if you can. These are great fellowship events and good times to invite others to join us.
