We are a welcoming community that seeks to follow Jesus Christ with all that we are and all that we have. Through worship, fellowship, education, and mission we open ourselves to God and our neighbor.

After many months without a Church School Newsletter, our Spring/Summer edition has finely arrived! Please click the link below for updates on all the events and activities going on in our church school program. Our newsletter will now be seasonal instead of monthly, so be on the lookout for our Fall edition in September. Have a blessed summer!
Summer musicians are wanted to sing or play at the 9:30 Sunday services, from now until Labor Day. Please contact Maggie Marshall if you are interested in sharing your time and talent.
We have switched to our schedule of summer services for the summer. Our 8am service will be in the chapel, and our 9:30 service will be in the main church. The Worship Commission, for the past few years, has discussed the time of our second summer service, with arguments being made for keeping it at 10am, and for keeping it at our now traditional summer time of 9am. The commission felt that 9:30 would provide a win/win, so will gather your feedback in the fall.
Darlene is now working 20 hours/week, and the office is staffed Tuesday – Friday from 11-3. We thank Diane Olbert for her continued assistance in the office
Below you will find details and background information about the campaign.
E-bulletin contributions are welcome from everyone! This is YOUR publication, and the more news, the better. In addition to news from your group, the e-bulletin is also a great place to ask for volunteers. The weekly deadline is Wednesday noon, and articles can be sent to the church office.
Calling all volunteers! Perhaps one of your New Year’s “resolutions” or “intentions” is to become more involved at All Saints’. The good news is that we have all sorts of volunteer opportunities, big and small, awaiting you. Here are just a few that come to mind, and in no particular order:
- Altar Guild member – these individuals work in teams to prepare the altar area for Sunday worship and special services. This is a behind-the-scenes job with flexible hours.
- Chalice bearer – responsible for administering the chalice at weekly and special services
- Thrift shop phone caller – responsible for calling volunteers to remind them of their upcoming weekly shifts. This is a behind-the-scenes job that has gone unfilled for the past year, and we have found that our volunteers need reminding.
- Choir member – all parts welcome. Sopranos and tenors given the royal treatment. Altos and basses will be welcomed, but not fawned over.
- Team leader for Eliot Church feeding program. Responsible for meal planning, shopping, and leading food preparation 4x/year.
- Wolverhampton host family – short term commitment from February 12-18. Host wonderful British high schoolers and their adult chaperones for a week of memories that will last a lifetime. Get to know your All Saints’ family better as a result.
If any of these positions interest you, please speak to Bill Bradbury or Maggie Marshall and we will connect you with the right person.

Good morning. When I sat down to write this, I decided to begin by looking up the definition of the word “stewardship.” According to Merriam-Webster, it means “the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.” And then I thought about what that “something entrusted to my care” is when it comes to my stewardship here at All Saints’.
Most of us are aware of the many physical needs of our parish – the aging building, the routine maintenance and upkeep costs, etc. But those aren’t typically the things with which I’m actively involved, so they aren’t the first things that come to mind when I think of my own stewardship at All Saints’.

Were you raised in the Roman Catholic church, but now find your spiritual journey has brought you to All Saints’? Do you have questions about the Episcopal Church? The service? The lingo? Would you just like to come and talk about the transition?
