Please take a moment to learn about exciting news from the "How Firm Our Foundation" capital campaign. Five parish families have come forward to increase their already generous giving to create a campaign matching fund of $500,000! Yes: you read correctly - a matching gift fund of $500,000.

These loving members
Sheri, Ed and Bitsy
of the parish have chosen to remain anonymous. Their support of All Saints and our Sanctuary Preservation  and Readiness Project is such a gift!

Campaign Gifts Matched 1 for 1: Donate Before July 31!
Exciting Campaign News: $500,000 Matching Fund Established
Five parish families have come forward to create a $500,000 matching fund that will match every dollar committed to the capital campaign before July 31, 2016. 
The Sanctuary is in dire need of seismic retrofitting.

"We are so thankful for the generosity of so many in our parish," said Rev. Aimée. "That these five families want to share their abundance to help us ensure the future of our Sanctuary is truly a gift from God," she added. The five families have already given to the campaign and are increasing their earlier very generous gift commitments.

The new gift fund will be used to match one dollar for each dollar donated by any parishioner who gives to the "How Firm Our Foundation" capital campaign between April 15 and the end of July. Gifts do not need to be paid by July to be eligible to be matched. Gifts may actually be paid over one to five years.

"We are so pleased to be able to announce this effort," said Rev. Aimée. "The campaign is among the most important projects of our time and will touch so many generations of future worshippers," she noted.

The fundraising effort stands at nearly $8 million. In order to authorize construction drawings to begin, roughly $10 million in commitments is needed by this summer. These gifts are fully tax deductible.

For more information call the Church Office or visit the campaign website.
Bell Tower Construction Celebration & Prayer Service
Sunday, April 24 at the conclusion of both the 8 and 10 a.m. services.

We will mark the beginning of the capital campaign construction project by praying for God's blessings and ringing our historic bell for the last time in the current tower.

After each service all are welcome to come ring the bell!

Children joining in will get to wear a hard hat - photo ops abound! Plus cake will be served on the patio after each service.

Please plan to come and be part of history!
