Dear saints, 

This weekend we will celebrate the transformation of our Habitat for Humanity build from house to home. Alongside the finishing touches, Saturday will see a dedication ceremony as the new homeowners, William and his family, receive the care of the home we have built alongside them these past several weekends. What a gift it has been to celebrate both our 120th anniversary as a church and the legacy of our beloved parishioner, Mike Carscaddon, a long-time leader at Habitat International. Friends of Mike have set up an endowment fund at All Saints' in his honor called the 'Matthew 25 Fund', inspired through Mike's life by the call in the gospel to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the incarcerated and care for the sick. Mike and All Saints' are witnesses in our lives to what it looks like to live the gospel with clear and faithful intention. May William and his family know something of that good news through our time together and the gift of his new home. 

Of course, this is a time in our life together when we are being invited to draw to mind our clear and faithful intentions for the future of our church on this city block. A couple of weeks ago we released a parish wide survey that asks each of us to answer a short number of questions about what matters most about All Saints' now and for the future. We can only build together the future we share a vision for.

Thank you to everyone who has already completed the survey. If you have not had the chance to do so yet, please follow this link to complete it today:

Thanks be to God for the builders of All Saints' in our hearts and through our lives.

Photos of the Week

This past Saturday, several All Saints' parishioners volunteered to work on Day 7 of our Habitat for Humanity house build and lunch preparation, as this project comes to a close. Together we worked on completing William Ross’ (pictured center) house, working on the exterior painting, the installation of the baseboards, window sills and interior trim. Finally, we worked on installing the doorknobs and bathroom hardware.

Meanwhile, back at the church, the Young Adults of All Saints’ prepared sandwiches for the build crew, as so many other groups of parishioners have done throughout the build.

Meanwhile, back at the church, the Young Adults of All Saints’ prepared sandwiches for the build crew. This coming Saturday, is the final build day on which our team will clean the house interior, perform touch-up painting, perform landscaping and witness the final dedication ceremony (for volunteers only, please)!

Then, on Sunday at the church, our whole community will gather after the 9:00 a.m. service in Ellis Hall to celebrate this exciting achievement for our community with party food, funny awards and a slideshow of pictures from the build. We would love to see you there! And for additional information, please feel free to reach out to our build co-chairs at [email protected] or to our Director of Parish Life, Annette Sullivan, at [email protected].

We would love to get to know you! Our community looks forward to you joining us for upcoming services and events throughout the year! For more information visit


Last week was Legacy Sunday. Thank you for attending our seminars! 

Many of you had great questions about Planned Giving, so David Begley, the Chair of Planned Giving, will cover more of this information in collaboration with the Planned Giving team over the coming weeks: 

Q: “I am 40 years old. Why should I make a planned gift now?” 


        A: Because these gifts may start small and grow just like investments do. Several parishioners have specified in their wills that All Saints’ will receive 5% of their estate following their deaths. This amount will change over the course of your life. Hopefully for all, it will increase significantly.  

And for older people, I will add this: life can take unexpected turns and these kinds of gifts signal to your family and loved ones what matters most to you. They make it clear that you were invested in your church community.

Bonhoeffer's Worldly Christianity and Its Relevance Today 

Wednesdays through March 20, 6:45 p.m. - 8:15 p.m., P 305/306 and on Zoom

Many U.S. Christians are drawn to Dietrich Bonhoeffer—the twentieth-century, German, pastor-theologian and Nazi resister—because he courageously lived what he believed. While plenty of Christians admire Bonhoeffer as a historical figure or an exemplar of Christian faith, far less do the harder work of reading his theology. After gaining an overview of his life and work through the documentary, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Pacifist, Nazi Resister, this course, led by The Rev. Dr. Jennifer McBride, will introduce participants to some of Bonhoeffer’s most compelling theological concepts and explore their relevance for Christian discipleship and public engagement today. To participate in this class via Zoom, please visit and enter password “AdultFormation2024”.
