Today: Sunday morning Bible study—We meet each week in the rector’s study from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. to study the lessons appointed for the day.
Today: Children’s Worship at 10:30 a.m.—Pre-kindergarten and elementary children worship in an age-appropriate manner in Room A during the Liturgy of the Word, and then return during the Peace so that they can participate in Holy Communion. Parents may accompany their children. The nursery will still be in session, and parents may always keep their children with them in church. Children’s bulletins are available at the entrance of the church. If you would like to help with Children’s Worship, please contact Jennifer Suttie at email@example.com or 831-521-9654.
Monday: Prayerful yoga—Creating space in the body through breath, movement, and stillness creates space in your heart and life. Join instructor Beth Lefebvre in Seccombe Hall from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. No previous yoga experience is required.
Wednesday: The Gospel According to Mark—You are welcome to attend an ongoing study of the Gospel of Mark led by Fr. Rick. Join us in Grant Hall each Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
Wednesday: Lenten Series Begins–We will use several inspiring videos by National Geographic photographer Dewitt Jones on how to reframe our perception of the world. These videos will prompt conversations about seeing the world through the lens of our faith. The Wednesday evening series, beginning on February 25, offers a creative way to prepare for the joyful and transformative power of Easter. We’ll begin with soup at 6:00 p.m., continue with videos and conversation at 6:30, and close with prayer at 7:15. Child care and a homework room will be provided upon request.
The next vestry meeting takes place on Wednesday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m., after the soup supper. Visitors are welcome.
Rector search process and parish transition—On March 8 we will hold a vestry forum after the 10:30 service. We will meet in the first few pews of the church. The topic will be the search process for a new rector. Canon Brian Nordwick will be here representing the bishop and will be able to answer all your questions about the process. Please plan to come. This is a chance to ask questions and share your ideas.
Duke University Chorale: free concert/hosts needed—The Duke University Chorale will perform at All Saints’ on Thursday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. Don’t miss this wonderful concert of choral favorites, featuring several California composers of today. Bed-and-breakfast hosts are needed to house pairs of students, picking them up after the concert and returning them to All Saints’ after breakfast the following morning. Contact Claudia Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org or 831-373-5069 if you can offer hospitality to these young artists.
Confirmation–Bishop Mary will celebrate confirmation at All Saints’ on Sunday, April 19. (Those confirmed in certain other traditions may be received into the Episcopal Church, rather than confirmed.) This sacrament is open to all adults, as well as youth in middle or high school. Please sign up in the back of the church or by contacting the parish office. A series of preparatory classes will be offered.
