!!!Pledge Cards and Service of Dedication- This Sunday!!!

This Sunday (November, 18th) is our service of Dedication. During this service we will offer our pledges for the upcoming year to God with praise and thanksgiving. Therefore, please remember to bring both sections of your pledge cards with you to Church this Sunday.

Here is how the service of Dedication will work just to give you an idea of what to expect.

·      Your pledge card has two parts. Fill both parts out and then detach the card. Put the large portion of the card in a sealed unmarked envelope. Bring both it and the smaller part of the card with you to church this Sunday

·      On Sunday drop the smaller portion of the Card in the offering plate (remember do not sign this small part of the card).

·      Keep the larger portion which is in the unmarked envelope with you. After church we will offer these to the Lord in our service of Dedication. 

·      Immediately after worship (before fellowship time) we will hold our service of Dedication on the front porch.

I encourage each of you to prepare your heart this week with prayer, Scripture, and reflection. Then come to God’s house on Sunday with a renewed sense of excitement and expectation about what our heavenly Father is doing in our midst.

Also, please note: If you do not have a pledge card,

             ·      You may print off a copy from the first attachment to this edition of the                      newsletter.

             ·      You may print off one from the All Saints web page

Part 2 of New Members/Confirmation Class- Join Us

Part 2 of our New Members/Confirmation class is underway. 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 All Saints’ Form page. It has all the forms we use throughout the year for our various programs and function. For example, you will find the Christmas Poinsettia and Easter Lilly memorial form, Annual pledge cards, and more. You can download them or even fill them out online and then send them to the church from your computer with just a click of a button.

This week we are featuring our Annual Pledge Cards. The pledge cards are a part of our season of preparation. As we seek God’s blessings for the future, a large part of our preparation will be to make sure that we are being faithful stewards of the blessings that God has already given us. Our goal is to have 10 out of every 10 families bring the whole 10% tithe into God’s house for this upcoming church year.

To find the All Saints’ Forms Page, go to the All Saints’ home page ( On the tool bar at the top right of the screen, find the Parish Life tab and select Forms from the drop down menu. You will find a link to the Pledge Cards on the ensuing page!
