David Crossman Concert- This Saturday (7/13) @ 7:00pm

We are thrilled to be having David Crossman back again this year for another concert performance. Last year was such a wonderful time of music and fellowship you won’t want to miss this year. Keep your eyes on our newsletter and on our Facebook page for more information. Plan to attend and as always, invite a friend.



Part 2 of New Members/Confirmation Class- Join Us

We have just started Part 2 of our New Members/Confirmation class. So now is a great time to jump in.

Part two of the class focuses on the Liturgy of the church with a special emphasis on the various aspects of our weekly Eucharistic service. It seeks to explain our liturgy’s endeavor to give faithful expression to God’s word at every part of the service as we all as to provide a clearer understanding of what those various parts are and mean. This should be a rewarding study that will deepen our understanding of and participation in our weekly worship services.

All who need to be confirmed are required to attend. All others who are interested, are encouraged and welcome to attend!

Web Feature (

This week’s web feature is the Historic Statements of the Christian Faith. Each of these succinct expressions of Scripture’s teaching has played a central role in articulating the Christian Faith down through the ages. Furthermore, each is a central document that define the belief of the Anglican Church. These Statements of Faith are:

·      The Three Historic Creeds of the Universal Church (accepted by both East and West). These are: the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian creeds

·      The Chalcedon Declaration (The universal Church’s statement of Biblical Christology)

·      The Thirty Nine Articles of Religion (The historic statement of Anglican belief was ratified in 1563 and affirmed by Anglican Church in North America as a part of the Jerusalem Declaration. It remains the statement and standard of Anglican belief today.

“We are desirous of setting forth in our churches the true doctrine of God and have no wish to adapt it to all tastes or to trifle with ambiguities, but, laying aside all carnal and prudential motives, to transmit to prosperity a true and explicit form of doctrine agreeable to the rule of sacred writings.”- Thomas Cranmer on the Articles of Religion, 1548

“We uphold the Thirty-nine Articles as containing the true doctrine of the Church agreeing with God’s Word and as authoritative for Anglicans today.”- Item #4 Jerusalem Declaration  June 28, 2008


To find the Historic Statements of Faith, go to the All Saints’ Home page (, locate the tool bar at the top right of the screen, find the Devotion tab and select Faith from the drop down menu. On the Faith page, scroll down to the any one of the historic statements or creeds and click on the blue link button on the left. Enjoy!!!
