Enneagram Class

If you are interested in taking a journey into self-understanding and deeper relationships with others, please join facilitator Sheila Jacobs for a class designed to explore the wisdom of the Enneagram. The Enneagram is one tool to help us understand how we and others meet the world, what motivates us, what hinders our growth, and what moves us toward wholeness. In this class, you will identify your Enneagram type and journey into your type and the types of others.
The class began on January 24 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church. There will be a total of 12 classes which will convene every other week. The wisdom of the Enneagram is best learned in community as we share our thoughts, questions, and stories. Even if you’ve never heard about the Enneagram, please consider joining us. Students of all levels are welcome.
Participants will be asked to purchase The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships by Suzanne Stabile prior to the first class.  (This book is $16.76 on Amazon.) Participants will also be asked to bring the Stabile book and a notebook/journal or laptop for note-taking and reflective writings.
Please contact Sheila Jacobs at if you have questions.
Ministry Team Training
All Saints’ is starting Ministry Teams! This is a new way to organize those who serve in different ministries on Sunday mornings. Basically, a team of individuals will be assigned to “host worship” each Sunday of the month. There will be three trainings in February that will cover the ministries of Greeters, Lectors, Oblationers, Intercessors, and Ushers. Everyone in the church is encouraged and invited to participate in one of these training sessions to both find their ministry and/or refresh their training. Sessions are offered on Saturday, February the 9th at 10:30am, Wednesday the 13th at 5pm, and Sunday the 17th at 9am. Contact with questions.
