SUMMER...and the goodness of God
Rummage Sale is September 28!
We are now actively collecting donations. Housewares, furniture (that you can be easily carried), toys, linens, tools, collectibles, seasonal are welcome! If you like help sort or price, let us know! We are also always happy to have help from friends and neighbors. The last day we can accept donations is Sept. 22. Details can be found on our e-letter under the Stewardship heading.
Children’s Corner – We have a corner of the church that welcomes parents with babies and toddlers who have a hard time sitting in a pew during worship. It has a bench, a rocking chair, space on the floor with a rug to come, and a basket of soft, quiet toys. Young children who can see and hear what is going on at the altar while they have the space to wiggle a bit are much more likely to be engaged with the service. They absorb far more than we often give them credit for. And it helps their parents, too! Come try it out!
Creation Care - God has made a good and beautiful Creation, and we are called to be faithful stewards of it. Starting in September our parish Creation Care team will be rolling out some ways we can address our own habits and practices here at All Saints' that will help us to be better stewards of the resources God has given us to care for. Look here for information about Episcopal Church Creation Care Ministry.
Welcome Sunday Neighborhood Picnic, September 8 – Gather with fellow parishioners for a new school year/program year get-together after the 10 am service. We’ll grill hot dogs and veggie burgers; you bring a salad, side, or dessert. We'll also have ice cream from Ava's! Our neighbors are invited, too. Please RSVP via e-mail the Parish Office at email@example.com.
Way of Love Podcast – Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has launched a new series of weekly podcasts on the Way of Love, the Episcopal Church rule of life (practice of faith and spirituality). You can find the podcast here, as well as on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts: https://wayoflove.episcopalchurch.org/episodes/DFMS1394582501
The Way of Love was launched last summer by Bishop Curry as a vision for the whole Episcopal Church to learn and grow in Christian spirituality as we follow Jesus. These podcasts will be a great opportunity over the summer to learn from our Presiding Bishop more about faith, prayer, and Christian service.

A Prayer for All Saints'
Lord Jesus, you call us to work, pray, and give for the good of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven: assist us with the grace of your Holy Spirit to live your goodness, justice, peace, and love in our lives, in our parish, in our neighborhoods, and in God’s world, so that heaven may become more real in this life. We ask this to God’s glory, and in the strength of your holy Name. Amen.
