!!!Happy Birthday All Saints!!!

All Saints is 12 years old! It is simply amazing to note how far God has brought us and the amazing ways He has blessed our parish! I cannot wait to see the amazing things God has in store for us in the future and how He will use each one of you in that ministry. The best is yet to come!



!!!The New Hymnal Have Arrived!!!

I think it is appropriate that on our church birthday we celebrate another of God’s blessings. We have ordered and received 80 new hymnbooks (basically replacing all the old ones we have). If I can brag on our church for a moment, let me mention that throughout the course of our hymn drive we raised ~$1,675.00! The cost of the new Hymnals was almost exactly that amount. God provided just what we needed.

Currently our plans are to make the transition to the new books on the first Sunday in August. The reason is that Glenn will be on vacation a couple of weeks during July and we felt it best not to spring a new book on our subs.



Hymnal Dedications- Form

We will be placing dedications in the front cover of the hymnals. Therefore, if you contributed a hymnal (or hymnals) during our Hymnal Drive and would like to dedicate it in memory of or in thanksgiving for someone/something, now is your chance.

To do this we will be using our online Easter Lily Memorial and Thanksgiving form (the information gathered is the same and therefore, there is no reason to generate a separate form for the Hymnals).


         ·      Please fill out a separate form for each Hymnal you want to dedicate (thus if you are dedicating 3 hymnals you will need to fill out 3 separate forms- they don’t take any time to fill out so this should not be a problem and it will help us avoid confusion when making the Dedications for each book). If you would like to make one dedication with multiple designations, that will be fine. List them all on the same form. Just understand that we will be operating under the assumption that one form = one Dedication.

         ·      Simply follow the link below and fill out the form and then hit the “Submit” button at the bottom of the form. Here is the LINK

         ·      Or you can run off as many copies of the form that you need from the first attachment to this email, fill it out, and drop it in the offering plate on Sunday



Special Prayer- Sam and Pat

As you may know, Sam Mauk and Pat Childers are both having upcoming surgery. Sam’s surgery will be this Thursday (June 21st) and Pat’s surgery will be next Friday (June 29th). Please keep Sam and Pat (as well as their families) in your prayers.

O GOD of heavenly powers, who, by the might of thy command, drives away from men's bodies all sickness and all infirmity; Be present in thy goodness with these thy servants Sam and Pat and all who operate upon them, that their conditions may be banished, their infirmities healed, and their strength restored; to the end that their health being recovered, they may bless thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



Upcoming Events

Ø David Crossman Concert- August

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 as time draws closer.  



Letters and Cards to Brad Coffey

For those of you who would like to write Brad Coffey, His address is included below. Please remember to use our church address as the return address on your letter, since it has been approved. Otherwise, Brad will not receive your letter.

Also, the church received a letter from Brad. I will put it on the information table in the parish hall so you can read it

Here is how your envelope should look:

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.



Lines from the Library- Book Reviews

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.   

Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand

Hebrews 13:3 states " Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body."

     That exhortation is in itself a good reason to read Tortured for Christ. Richard Wurmbrand, the Romanian pastor, wrote this book fifty years ago after spending fourteen years in Communist prisons, but it is still relevant today.  Wurmbrand's commission from fellow Christians behind the Iron Curtain was to make the Western Church aware of the plight of Christians persecuted in Eastern Europe. He says, "This book is written not so much with ink, as with the blood of bleeding hearts." The 50th anniversary edition now in our library includes a few updates related to our day.

     Wurmbrand brings challenges to our faith: "A man really believes not what he recites in his creed, but only the things he is ready to die for." Are we ready to die for what we believe?

     A quick read, worth every minute.


Every Man's Battle by Stephen Arturburn and Fred Stoeker

Also new to our library: Every Man's Battle: Every Man's Guide to Winning the War on Sexual Temptation One Victory At a Time by Stephen Arturburn and Fred Stoeker.

From the back cover: From the television to the Internet, print media to videos, men are constantly faced with the assault of sensual images. It is impossible to avoid such temptation...but, thankfully, not impossible to rise above them. Shattering the perception that men are unable to control their thought lives and roving eyes, Every Man's Battle shares the stories of dozens who have escaped the trap of sexual immorality and presents a practical, detailed plan for any man who desires sexual purity....

Includes a special section for women, designed to help them understand and support the men they love.



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!

Web Feature (

This week we feature a somewhat new edition to our webpage: The Anglican Catechism (To Be A Christian).  This is a wonderful devotional resource and a much needed addition to the Anglican Church’s teaching ministry. Traditionally Catechisms were used to instruct covenant children and new converts to the faith in the central teachings of Scripture. As such, these catechisms provide a clear summery of the faith as well as Scriptural references for each point. In turn, they remained an invaluable devotional resource for God’s people throughout their lives and at every stage of their Christian walk. The Anglican Catechism is just this sort of resource. I encourage you to take a look at it and to make use of it in your own family and personal devotional life.

To find the Anglican Catechism, go to the All Saints’ Home page (, locate the tool bar at the top right of the screen, find the Devotion tab and select Devotion from the drop down menu. On the Devotion page select Anglican Catechism.  Enjoy!!!

Also, a copy of the Anglican Catechism can be purchased through our All Saints Book Store here: LINK
