All Saints Ancestors Casserole  Potluck and  Stewardship Ingathering
Sunday, November 4, 2018

On November 4th, we will celebrate together as we remember those who so generously nurtured us in the past and those who share God's abundant blessings with us today.  Stewardship cards will be blessed during both services.   Saints will be feasting as well! You  are invited to bring a family favorite dish to our Ancestors Casserole Potluck after the 10:30 service. Drop off your dish before the 10:30 service and we will keep warm ones in our hot boxes and cold ones in the refrigerator. Consider dressing up as your favorite saint!

Many thanks to all who have volunteered their time to help make this meal possible. There are still openings available for helpers to set up on Saturday afternoon November 3rd and to cleanup after the event on   November 4th.
Contact    Anne Duncan (770 454-9053) to volunteer to be a part of this team.    We would be delighted to have you join us.

Interim Director of Children's Ministry
Please Welcome Kelli Jones

In 2010, Kelli graduated from Candler School of Theology at Emory University with a Master of Divinity degree, including a Certificate in Religious Education and a Certificate in Women in Theology and Ministry. She served as the Coordinator of Servanthood Ministries at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Norcross, as a team leader for Christian Formation at Epiphany Lutheran Church in Suwanee, and she has been worshipping at St. Patrick's since January, 2017. Kelli has a heart for children's ministry, for the vital role that children have in our faith community, and for the call of the church to nurture children and those who care for them by building communities that enfold them in grace, love, peace, joy, and compassion. Away from St. Patrick's, she can be found homeschooling her daughter, pulling weeds in her garden, or paddling around the calm and peaceful waters of Lake Berkeley. She looks forward to welcoming you and your children into the vibrant life and ministry of St. Patrick's!
