Rector’s Forum,

June 3, at 9 am.
Ever wonder how decisions get made in our denomination? Once every three years, the wider Episcopal Church comes together to worship, fellowship, and conduct business. Deputies from all dioceses in the Episcopal Church, as well as all bishops, will gather in Austin, Texas for the 79th General Convention of the Episcopal Church. This coming Sunday in Rector’s Forum we will talk about the structure and governance of the Episcopal Church at all levels. Please join us!
Contribution Request for Church Mower Replacement
I am sure that by now most of you have heard that while using the church’s old orange mower on April 21st, it caught fire and severely burned the mower. The estimated cost of repair was way beyond the value of the mower once repaired. Considering it is about 13 years old, and was already showing extensive wear, it was depreciated beyond the ability to file an insurance claim. So, it is time for us to replace the mower and we need to find a way to fund it ourselves.
As a result, I am starting a designated fund to enable us to purchase a replacement with a mower more appropriately sized and designed to the large task of mowing our extensive grounds with so many trees.
The old mower was sold for parts/scrap and one donation has already been received giving us some “seed money.” A couple more pledges have also been offered that, when received, will be added to the fund thus enabling us to build upon this Mower Replacement Fund until the purchase can be made.
Since the mower we will need will be quite expensive, I am asking for donations to help us replace our old church mower. Please include in the memo line of your check “Mower Replacement” so we know exactly where to apply the funds.
I am always proud of All Saints’ and their commitment to rally around any need.
KaDee McCormick,
Parish Administrator

Thank You For Your Support!

For over 50 years children ages 6-18 have spent part of their summer at Camp Mitchell, learning new skills, making new friends, and learning about the love God has for each of them. Camp Mitchell’s programming is grounded in the belief that children grow when given opportunities to explore, play, and engage in meaningful friendships. Each year summer camp has a theme and each week the leaders of the week incorporate that theme into Christian-focused programming. Along with this intentional faith-based component, children are offered multiple opportunities each day to play, explore, and create. At the end of each week, kids will head home, taking with them craft projects, new friendships, and a more deeply grounded faith.
A big THANK YOU to all who contributed to Camp Mitchell scholarships for our parish children to attend summer camp. $2,365.00 has been raised and will help defray expenses for 9 children to attend these wonderful camps. What a blessing!!
The Letter of James
The Wednesday Morning Bible Study is beginning a study of the letter of James. This short book of the New Testament is thought by many to have been written by James, the brother of Jesus. It is an exhortation to moral behavior within a Christian community, a piece of religious instruction. Bible study begins at 10 am in the Faith & Reason Classroom, and all are welcome to attend.
