All Saints' Day

Eye of the Needle

Daylight Saving Time begins: Fall back one hour this Sunday.
Who needs a reminder to sleep an hour longer this Saturday night? Well, yes, your toddler probably does, but we can't get them to read the eMessenger. The All Saints' propers wil be followed this Sunday. Our little manipulation of the clock doesn't hold a candle to the communion of saints throughout the ages, does it? But, don't miss the continuing story of Jesus on the way we've been reading. You can find the readings for the 25th Sunday after Pentecost, here. It's a good one, too: "Which commandment is the first of all?"

7:30 a.m. - Rite I service in the church.

As You Are service begins at 9:00 a.m. in the Chapel of the Twelve Apostles.

Children's Church: Meet in the Choir Room on the second floor of the Parish Hall between 8:50 and 9:00 a.m. for an age-appropriate lesson on the day's reading, an activity, and music with Jody Hanet.

9:00 a.m. - Rite II service in the church with organ and cantors.

10:00 a.m. - Christian Education classes for young children (second floor of the Parish Hall) and adults in the CSF Atrium on the third floor of the Ministries Center. Read more.

11:00 a.m. - Rite II service in the church with organ and choir.

5:00 p.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II in the Chapel of the Twelve Apostles.

Centering Prayer this Sunday at 6:00 p.m. in the CSF Suite on the third floor of the Ministries Center.

Christian Ed This Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

Good Shepherd and True Vine Sunday School meet on the second floor of the Parish Hall, for children 3-5 and 6-9 with age-level lessons about the life of Jesus from prophecies of his birth through the resurrection, the seasons of the church year, the sacraments, Bible parables, and more, through the year. Mr. Bob, Ms. Cathy, Anna & Allie welcome you!

This Sunday: The Role of Women in the Early Church and Today

Matriarchs: Who Are They? How did the women of the early days of the church do all the work and receive little, if any, recognition? Why? Who are some of them? How can we make their names so recognizable that they are the ones we think of? Find the answers – or at least some of them - with Mtr. Mary Ann Garrett and Barbara Sims, presenters, at 10:00 a.m. in the CSF Atrium.

And, don't forget:

Blood Drive
