Time To Set The Parish Hall Back Up!
Last Sunday we cleared the floors so we could clean the carpets, and that is now complete. Dave will be leading a little get-together to get things set back up tomorrow, Friday, starting at 11 AM. Come on by to help out!
Book Club's Next Meeting Is At The End Of This Month!
The Intermittent Book Club's next meeting will be on Sunday, October 29th. All interested are invited to read The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder. In this novel, set in colonial Peru, a collapsing bridge brings 5 to their deaths. A Franciscan friar watching the disaster attempts to discern between free will and providence as he looks for the connection between them, with a result both surprising and affirming of God's role in our lives. As always, all members of the congregation are invited to read and attend!
Our All Saints Day Celebration: November 5th
Our All Saints' Day festivities are now fast approaching, so here's what you can look forward to for our patronal feast on November 5th. We will have both our 8 and 10 am Sunday services. The 8 AM service will be our standard early service. At 10 AM we'll feature our full All Saints splendor, with an expanded choir, incense, etc. During both services we will bring back the ingathering from last year, where pledge cards are received and blessed. Finally, there will be a choral evensong at 4 PM, followed by a Carnival of the Animals performance from the harp duo of Kerstin Allvin and Beverly Wesner-Hoehn. Look forward to all the fun!
Birthday Luncheon for Margaret
In celebration of the 95th birthday of Margaret, Scott Nelson's mother, we will be having a luncheon on November 12th, directly following our 10 AM service. If you plan to attend, please RSVP with Scott, so that we can get an accurate estimate for our catering. Thank you.
Stewardship Letters Are On The Way!
It is stewardship season once again! Your Stewardship Chair, Wardens, and All Saints staff have been hard at work getting this year's stewardship letter put together, and if you were on our mailing list you'll probably have received yours by now. We also have these letters available at the church to hand out on Sundays for anyone who might not be on the mailing list.
Once you've filled out your pledge card you can hang onto it for our All Saints' Day service, where we'll have a special ingathering! All Saints Office Hours:
Tuesday-Thursday: 9 AM - 1 PM
