January Strategic Planning Question:
What is your favorite part of life at All Saints' Church?
The Vestry is entering a time of strategic planning for the future of All Saints’. For the past few years we have been focused on the physical plant (the renovations to the Nave and the Clark Street Vestibule). What is next? They want to invite the entire parish into the process over the next five months focusing on five key questions - one each month from January to May. The question for January is:

What is your favorite thing about life at All Saints’ Church?

Here is how you can share your input:

  1. Join us on Sunday, January 12 after either the 8:00 am service or the 10:00 am service for a face-to-face discussion led by one of our Co-Rectors.
  2. Join Vestry members Audrey Martin and Dwayne Aljets at a supper on January 20 at 6:30 pm at the home of Audrey Martin. RSVP by following this link: January Strategic Planning Supper
  3. Share your thoughts via an online survey by clicking on the link below here: What is your favorite part of life at All Saints' Church?

You will find more information about our strategic planning process on our website here: All Saints' Strategic Planning Process

Godly Play in 2020
GP Logo
Starting in THIS Sunday we will have two Godly Play classes ~ a Pre-school -2 nd grade group meeting in the Bramhall Room, and a 3 rd -8 th grade group meeting in the Rand Room (on the second floor, down the hallway near the Lift). We found in the fall that often our single class was over-crowded (a good problem to have). Parents – please begin to prepare your children for this change. Thanks go out to the expanding Godly Play Team!

Pre-school – 2 nd Grade:
Kathy Haacke, Ross Hopkins, Fran Hutchinson, James Talkington

3 rd Grade – 8 th Grade:
Cheryl Minor, John Thomas Minor, Nancy Morrison, Regina Raz
The Great Christmas Clean-up!
Help is needed for "the Great Christmas Clean-up" this Sunday. Stay after the 10:00 to help us get all the greens and flowers out of the church, put away the tree, the nativity, and more!. If you have any left-over Christmas cookies, feel free to bring them to share!

If you can't stay, please feel free to grab a poinsettia or two to enjoy at home!

Volunteers needed for Bristol Lodge Sunday, January 12
Plan now to help prepare the meal for the Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen on Sunday, January 12 after the 10:00 am service.

Volunteers will meet in the kitchen to prepare the meal. A second group is needed to return to church around 4:00 pm to load up the cars and deliver / serve the meal in Waltham.

Haiti Update!
The country of Haiti remains unsettled at best, with protests continuing and school closures happening regularly. For this reason, we have decided to postpone a team trip to Haiti this spring.

Instead, our Co-rectors will visit for a week in March to connect with our friends at Mission of Hope and assess how best we can support their work going forward. Stay-tuned for more updates!
