Sunday Evening Singalong- 5pm, October 6th

Our monthly evening of song will be this coming Sunday (Oct 1) at 5pm. This is a wonderful time of song and fellowship and a great opportunity for us to lift our voices together in praise to God. As always, invite a friend!

Also, Bobbi asks that you bring any instruments that you have at the house (guitar, flute, drum, and etc…)

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 we feature a couple of important Links that we have included on our web site and Facebook page that should be of interest to our congregation.

The first Link is to the Nashville Statement. This is an important affirmation of the biblical stance on sexuality and marriage. At the same time, it is a loving but firm orthodox response to the current confusion so prevalent today. All Saints is glad to stand with many notable theologies such as J.I. Packer and John Frame in our signing of this statement. LINK

The second link is to the Anglicans for Life webpage. The Anglicans for Life is a prolife anti-abortion ministry in partnership with the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). In fact, their “Declaration of Life Statement” adopted in 2005, served as the basis for the ACNA’s Title II, Canon 8, Section 3 statement on the sanctity of life. The main objective of Anglicans for Life is to be a Christ-centered ministry that provides educational and pastoral resources to churches in the Anglican Communion, in order to help them bear witness to the sanctity of life. LINK

The Third link is to the GAFCON website. GAFCON is the alliance of worldwide Anglican Bishops and Primates who are committed to: Christ as Lord and Savior, Scripture as God’s word, and to the Historic tenets of the Anglican faith. These Bishops represent the majority of the Anglican world and they have committed to move forward together on these faithful terms. As members of the REC and the ACNA, our bishops are part of GAFCON. Here is the Link to their site LINK

Also, as a bonus, here is a fourth link to the founding statement and theological commitment of GAFCO known as the Jerusalem Declaration. LINK

These are all important witnesses and testimonies that our parish subscribes to. Thus, it is important for our members to be familiar   with them and know that they are available as references when needed. Enjoy!

To find these and all the other links on our All Saints webpage, go to the All Saints’ Home page (, locate the tool bar at the top right of the screen, find the Resources tab and select Links from the drop down menu. Enjoy!!!
