Vestry Meeting- This Tuesday- April 17th

The Vestry will meet this Tuesday evening, 6:30 at Stax Omega.



Easter Video Devotion Series- On Facebook

We are re-releasing our 5 part Easter Video deviation series on our All Saints Facebook page. We have given the series a new format that I think will make it even more accessible.

We will release a new installment each week. Also, at the conclusion of our Easter series we will be releasing our Ascension VDev series as well as a brand new never before seen series on the Trinity.

Part 3 of our Easter Video Devotion is up on our All Saints Facebook Page. Have a look and if you enjoy it, please remember to Like and Share it. You can find the video here: LINK

Choir Practice Has Begun- Voices Needed

Choir Practice has just gotten underway (Sunday, March 4th) and is held shortly after the worship service.

Also, we need more voices in our choir. If you have been thinking about giving the choir a try, if you have ever sung in a choir before, or if you just like to sing, we could really use you! I encourage you to prayerfully consider giving the choir a try. If you are interested, please see Glenn.


Cancer Research- Dragon Boat Race

Blythe’s daughter Robyn is participating in a Dragon Boat race to raise money for cancer research and needs abled body crew members to help her team row. Anyone who wishes to participate in paddling the Dragon Boat must be 16 years of age.  Registration is $25.OO.  For more information, please contact Blythe


If you just wish to donate to the cause, this LINK will take you straight to Robyn’s page– ALL FUNDS GO TO CANCER RESEARCH.  Thanks. Blythe



Lines from the Library- New Book Review

Lines from the Library feature book reviews and recommendations about books that are in our All Saints Church Library. If you read a book from our library and think others would enjoy it, please write a brief review or give a quick recommendation so others will know about it.   

Book Review: To Be Where You Are

For those of you who are Mitford fans (I refer to the series of novels by Jan Karon), you will be delighted to know that we now have her latest book, To Be Where You Are, in our church library. As usual, the characters draw us in and they feel like family. I won’t spoil it for you, but this latest story doesn’t disappoint.

For those unfamiliar with the Mitford series, a brief synopsis:

Father Tim Kavanaugh, an Anglican priest, lives in a small town in North Carolina named Mitford. When the series began, Ms. Karon lived in Blowing Rock, N.C. and wrote what she knew. Her first tentative efforts were a huge success and I count fourteen books now in the series. You’ll fall in love with the colorful characters: Fr. Tim, a diabetic bachelor who loves poetry; Cynthia, his next-door neighbor; Esther Bolick who is notorious for her killer Orange Marmalade Cake; Miss Sadie Baxter; Uncle Billy; and a host of others whose lives are touched by the likable priest.

What are you waiting for? Start with At Home in Mitford, in any public library and also in our own library. (Not for women only.) I think I’ll re-read them all! – Review by: Bobbi Killinger



!!!New Hymnal Drive- Continues!!!

In praise and thanksgiving for all the many blessings that God has given us, we are continuing our New Hymnal Drive.

Update: Our Hymnbook drive has been a huge success. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously. We have covered the cost to provide new hymnals for our members, servers, and choir. Currently we are filling in the remainder of the pews. That said, I expect to place our order for the new books in the very near future.

If you would like to donate a hymnal, please put “Hymnal” on the “For” line of your check and drop it in the offering plate



Sunday School For all Ages

Sunday School begins at 9:30. Invite a friend and plan to attend! I know it will be a blessing to you!



Like and Share- All Saints Facebook Page

Remember to like and share our All Saints Facebook page with your Facebook friends. Also, since our Facebook page is public (meaning, you don’t have to have a Facebook account to view it), you can share any of its features (VDevs, Midday Prayer, Articles, and etc…) by simply cutting and pasting the following link and emailing it to someone you know.



Web Feature (

This week’s web feature is the All Saints’ Sermons Page. Here you can listen to an audio of the latest sermon given at All Saints and download a copy of the sermon notes.

The reason that I am featuring the Sermons Page this week is because we are picking back up with our study of Philippians and so for this week and next (15th & 22nd) we will be reviewing the ground we have already covered. This review will be helpful to you as we move forward in the Epistle.

To find the Sermons Page, go to the All Saints’ Home page (, locate the tool bar at the top right of the screen, find the Resources tab and select Sermons from the drop down menu. You will find the latest sermon on the ensuing page. Enjoy!!!


Spread the Word about All Saints’

If All Saints’ has been a blessing to you, invite someone you know to church!
