Happy Easter!
 
End of Year Virtual Celebrations: Our 2020-2021 program year is coming to an end within the next few weeks. Sunday School’s end of year celebration will take place Sunday, April 25, and Youth Group’s end of year celebration will be Wednesday, April 28. THANK YOU for a great year of gathering together each week, even if virtually, to learn, check-in, and pray together!
 
Summer Gatherings: Parents, I need to hear from you! As we look to plan gatherings & activities for this summer (particularly July & August), I need to know what families are interested in. Please email me at asygappleton@gmail.com to let me know if your family is:
 
1.    Interested in All Saints Youth Ministry (ASYM) gatherings in-person (masked & outside as much as possible, masked & in Kemper Hall for rainy weather)
2.    Interested in ASYM virtual gatherings
3.    Interested in resources/activities to do at-home on your own time
4.    A combination of any of the above options
5.    Not interested in participating in ASYM activities this summer
 
Any insights you can provide will be greatly appreciated, and I thank you for taking two minutes to respond with what will be best in your context!

A Note From the Sealys
Phil and Faith Sealy and family want to thank all of you for your prayers during our recent trauma. Phil's recovery from being so ill with aspiration pneumonia is nothing but miraculous. Your corporate and individual prayers are powerful and our gratitude knows no limit. The Holy Spirit was with us and held us up.

With heartfelt love for all of you in the glory of the Holy Trinity,
Faith and Phil
A Note From Marilyn Elm
Marilyn Elm would like to thank everyone who's called or brought things to her while she's been unable to go out, especially Dolores Wiseman (for delivering the gifts for homebound parishioners) and Laurie Leonard (for making the gifts). She's very grateful for you all.
All Saints Events
In-Person Service Registration
Reminder: Now that All Saints has returned to limited in-person worship, you must contact the church office each week, by the end of the day on Thursday, to reserve your spot for Sunday. Attendance is limited to 50 people, including clergy and servers, and masks and social distancing are required.

If you're not yet comfortable attending church in person, the services can also be watched on the All Saints Facebook page. You do NOT need to have a Facebook account to watch.
Coffee Hour
We are still gathering for virtual Coffee Hour via Zoom Sundays following our usual worship service. At this time, we will move our start time to 11:15am to help accommodate those who are attending in-person services and allow them time to get home & get settled. This time may be adjusted in the future as we figure out what will work best for participants, so please be sure to double-check either Facebook or the Virtual Worship page on the parish website for the most accurate time. The link remains the same. Thank you for your patience as we continue to learn how to best connect at this time!
Altar Flowers
As of Sunday, April 18, we'll resume having flowers on the altar on a regular basis! Emily has created a new virtual sign-up sheet, which you can find HERE. Just fill in your information on the chart to sponsor the altar flowers for a particular Sunday. If you have any trouble with signing up, contact Emily for help.

NOTE: Because of the long hiatus, no names from previous years will be carried over. We're starting with a blank sheet, and all memorials must be added from scratch. Thank you for understanding!

Opportunities to Serve
Pillars Shelter Volunteering
Our volunteer ministry with Pillars Adult and Family Shelter is still on hold until it becomes less risky.

Hearty thanks to Sue and Phil Stenz for their many, many years of skillful and cheerful coordination of this ministry, even after they moved to Waupaca! We will be looking for new leadership once we begin again, but for now contact Sarah Gilbert with any questions.
