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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 831-521-9654.
Today: Rector search process and parish transition—We will hold a vestry forum after the 10:30 service, and 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.
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.
Tuesday: All Saints’ Book Group—We’ll meet in the library at 6:00 p.m.
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—We are using several inspiring videos by National Geographic photographer Dewitt Jones on how to reframe our perception of the world. These videos prompt conversations about seeing the world through the lens of our faith. The Wednesday evening series offers a creative way to prepare for the joyful and transformative power of Easter. We begin with soup at 6:00 p.m. and finish by 7:30. Child care and a homework room will be provided upon request.
Thursday: Duke University Chorale: free concert—The Duke University Chorale will perform at All Saints’ on Thursday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. This wonderful concert of choral favorites features several California composers of today.
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.
Donations to the Lenten Giving Boxes go to St. Patrick’s School, Haiti, which keeps going thanks to the contributions of many. Their progress is good but their need is great.
Lenten gifts—Clean blankets, new t-shirts and socks, and nearly new clean, warm clothing are needed. The boxes are in the church. Pick-up will be on Palm Sunday. Thank you from the Outreach Commission.
