Global Montessori School starts its 4th year at All Saints

This week marked the beginning of the fourth year of our partnership with the Global Montessori School. From the beginning our vision was not to simply have a paying tenant in our building, but to view this as a partnership. Together we are working to provide families in our community with a reasonably priced, high-quality Montessori program for children aged 15 months - 6 years. The school has a total of 61 children enrolled, and are planning to expand to accommodate an additional 9 children. From the beginning the school has had a waiting list which is a testament to its visionary director, Mrs. Sahar Dahdouh.  This also shows that we are meeting a real need in this community!

Our Co-Rector, Cheryl Minor, provides daily support to the school. In addition, she is starting her second year of teaching music in the school. Fran Hutchinson joins her on Wednesday afternoons to offer Godly Play to families who choose. We are not sure how big the program will be this year, but last year over half the children in extended care chose to participate.

Please continue to hold the school - staff and families - in your prayer. May this year be another wonderful year of learning, care, and relationship building! Special prayers for safety as we finish up the construction projects at the church!
Program Year Begins Sunday 9/15

We will return to the program year schedule on Sunday, September 15, with a service at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. 

Godly Play sessions will resume on the 15th, and we will welcome back the Choir!  

Please continue to check your email each Friday for Construction updates. We anticipate being able to be in the Church, but that might change one or more weeks.


Registration for Fall Youth programs now open!

Registration for fall Youth Programs at All Saints' is now open. Forms are available at the Church and online here.

Programs include Nursery Care, Godly Play sessions (see options below), and serving as an acolyte.

Even if your child has been in our program before, please fill out a registration form. We need up to date allergy information, emails, etc.

Godly Play sessions take place three times a week:
  • Sunday mornings at 10:00 am (ages 3-14)
  • Monday mornings at 10:00 am (ages 3 and up)
  • Tuesday afternoons at 3:15 pm (ages 3 and up)
Be sure to share this with your neighbors, friends and family! Many children who attend other churches on Sundays, or no church at all, are taking advantage of the opportunity to do Godly Play at All Saints' during the week by attending the sessions listed above or through the Global Montessori School.

For more information about Godly Play go to www.godlyplayfoundation.org

  • Lay Eucharistic Ministers
  • Readers
  • Acolytes
  • Altar Guild Members
  • Ushers
  • and Choir members
Speak to Cheryl or Paul if you are interested in joining in with this important work!
Trip to Haiti planned for February

We are in the beginning stages of planning a Mission Trip to Haiti during the 2020 February Public School Vacation. We hope our youth will join us, as well as some adults. We will work with the new music/technology teacher while we are there, and spend time connecting with the class we sponsor. There is also always an opportunity to help out in the medical clinic if you have those skills.

Join us on Sunday, September 29 after the 10 am service if you have an interest in joining us to learn more.
Tithe.ly
All Saints' new online 
giving platform.

Traveling a lot this summer? Keep your pledge up to date by setting up a recurring gift on our new online giving platform - Tithe.ly. 

Tithe.ly is the most used giving platform in the country and comes highly recommended by many of our colleagues. It has a reputation for being very secure (they use the same platform as Amazon and Apple) and for ease of use. You can make a one time gift or set it up to come out weekly, monthly - whatever works best for you. You can use a credit card or set it up to come directly out of your bank account. You can give to the operating budget, altar flowers, or to help us manage our loan re-payment. 

As we have been announcing, All Saints' borrowed $150,000 dollars recently to pay for much needed renovations to the entryway and lobby. Starting in July we will be making monthly payments on the loan. If just 30 of our givers pledged an additional $43.00 a month we could manage the payments without using any of our investment funds. Please consider using Tithe.ly to set up this new gift!

Note: If you do not want to use Tithe.ly, please consider setting up electronic payments directly from your bank. Contact Cheryl at the Parish Office and she can give you our bank account information so you can set up a direct deposit into our account at Santander.
