From the Senior Warden, Sarah Gilbert
We did it! At our (first ever) virtual annual meeting, held last Sunday via Zoom, we covered the usual business of ministry reports and warden/vestry elections smoothly. Ken Schoenike and I were re-elected as Junior and Senior Wardens for another year. Joining the vestry for three year terms are Judy Hebbe, Rebecca Erickson, and Pamela Padley.

Perhaps the best part was the screen full of smiling faces, happy to see each other again.

Huge thanks go out to the Online Ministry Team and parish staff for all their work behind the scenes, along with much appreciation for outgoing vestry members Heather McCombs, Suzanne Fischer, and Jan Watson, former interim organist/pianist Catherine Walby, former treasurer Alicia Bayambang, former clerk Matthew Payne, new treasurer Tina Wilfer, and new clerk Joanne Bozeman.
From the Youth Minister, Erin Wolf
Lenten blessings to all!
 
For the remainder of the program year, Sunday School and Youth Group will be exploring lessons surrounding “The Way of Love” through “Faith @ Home”, offered through Forward Movement and Forma. If you’d like to explore the materials, which are offered for adult-preschool, adult-elementary, adult-youth, adult-adult, CLICK HERE. These are designed to use at any time during the liturgical year and are free to all.
 
We are still in need of secondary adult support on Wednesday evenings for our Youth Group gatherings. We meet from 7:00-7:45pm via Zoom. If available and willing to assist, contact Erin Wolf for more information.
 
Care Packages for college-age/young adults: If you have a college-aged student and/or young adult ages 18-24 that would like to receive a care package on behalf of the All Saints Youth Ministry, please send their name, current mailing address, and any allergies/dietary restrictions to Erin Wolf at asygappleton@gmail.com by Sunday, March 21. We’d like to get packages in the mail before Easter, if at all possible. Thank you!
 
FDL Summer Camp: If safe enough to offer camp in-person, we will be heading to Waypost Camp in Hatley, WI (east of Mosinee and southeast of Wausau). Our group will be the only one on-site during our time there, and there are lots of cool new activities and program opportunities available to use, including a low ropes initiative course, gardening/composting, and bread making.
 
At-home camp activities will still be made available for families who are unable to join in-person, yet still want to be connected. If conditions become such that it is not safe to offer in-person camp at all for 2021, we will return to the Camp @ Home model from 2020.
 
COVID-19 precautions and safety measures will be put in place, and we are working with Waypost Camp, Crossways Camps, our diocesan COVID-19 Task Force, and guidelines set out by the American Camping Association to help provide as safe an environment as possible. Registration, volunteer staff applications, and more details coming soon. Updates will be shared via official diocesan channels – diocesan website, FDL Summer Camp webpage, diocesan Facebook page, @diofdlyouth Instagram account, and Scattering Seeds newsletter.
 
Senior Camp (completed grades 9-12 & high school 2020 grads): June 20-26, 2021
Middler Camp (completed grades 6-8): June 27-July 1, 2021
Junior Camp (completed grades 2-5): June 27-July 1, 2021
Kinder Camp (ages 4-7 with adult): July 1-3, 2021
 
Have a safe and blessed rest of the week, all!

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.
