From the Youth Minister, Erin Wolf
Congratulations to Ellyn Lepisto on her Confirmation this past Sunday! Thank you also to Bishop Matt & Leslie Gunter for their visit to the parish.
 
Terminator Night , an annual Youth Group outing to St. Thomas Episcopal in Menasha, will take place this Sunday, Nov. 17 from 5:00-7:00pm. This is open to those in grades 6-12 & adult leaders and will take place of our usual gathering. Friends are welcome, dinner included, no cost!

No Sunday School or Youth Group on Sunday, December 1 st due to the holiday weekend. However, all are encouraged to be present for both the 1 st Sunday of Advent and our first Sunday with Fr. Christopher Wilkerson!

Movie Outing: On Tuesday, Dec. 3, ALL are welcome to join and see the upcoming Mr. Rogers movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (NR) at the Marcus Valley Grand (Appleton East location). Cost is $5/person (and discounted concessions are also available). Movie times will be released about a week ahead of time, but I have requested a start time within the 6-7pm hour. Please RSVP by Sunday, Nov. 17 to save your spot.

From Parish Treasurer Alicia Bayambang
Hello All Saints,
 
Please see the September financial results below. My submission is late due to adjusting to some unexpected events in my personal life which seem to be the norm this year. In the words of my favorite Tony Bennett song written by Carolyn Leigh, “The Best Is Yet To Come”..right? The unexpected is the time that I need to pray to have faith in God’s plan for my life and not try to rush His agenda. One thing that has been consistent during All Saints’ unexpected transition is your support for All Saints and waiting for God’s plan to unfold. September was an eye-opening, double checking, off the records amazing month for the church finances. Pledges were $8,101.66 over budget and YTD $22,125.03 over budget.
 
We also received a very generous one-time stock gift reflected in the total purposed income, causing it to be $16,788.59 over budget for the month. Thank you to our All Saints family who may not live close to us physically but are still in our hearts and continue to give generously to the church. We miss you, we pray for you, and we are grateful for your continued support of All Saints.
 
Operating expenses were $11,019.75 under budget this month due to the timing of the supply priest expenses and not having a full-time rector. Bottom line, All Saints had a surplus (more incoming cash that out-going cash) of $26,801.92 in September and YTD of $31,178.72. This surplus will help to fund the potential deficit we will see in 2020 when we have Father Christopher with us.
 
The words Thank You are not enough to express the gratitude I feel towards our All Saints family. We came together over the past year and committed ourselves to give our time, talents, and treasure to keeping the All Saints mission alive. Thank you to the Vestry, Staff, and Members who share a common belief that God is working through All Saints.

Nametags
With Fr. Christopher starting as our new rector in just a few weeks, it's important to get back into the habit of wearing nametags on Sunday mornings to help him learn our names and faces. If you already have a nametag on the rack in the Palmer Room, remember to put it on when you come to church; if you don't have a nametag, please contact the office to have one made.
Wednesday Eucharist
Wednesday, Nov. 20 will be Fr. Jim Conradt's last day as the supply priest for our midweek Eucharist. Due to Thanksgiving, there will be no Eucharist on Wednesday, Nov. 27 . Thank you to Fr. Jim for his faithful service this year!
