All Saints Newsletters

All Saints publishes two newsletters regularly, which keep members and visitors informed about what is going on. 

  • Grace Notes is a weekly short email newsletter (see below), focusing on what is happening in the upcoming few weeks.  3-4 pages.
  • Calling All Saints is a periodic longer news publication, distributed by email and by postal mail, with longer pieces that cover recent milestones and events, and more detail on the major upcoming events of the season. 8-16 pages. Back issues are online in the Document Archive

Please download a sample issue of these newsletters to see what we're up to!

In addition, we have several brochures that describe our church, our community ministries, our volunteer opportunities, and the ways people can help the church.

If you would like to be put on the mailing list for our newsletters, please contact us.

FORUM ON HYMN SINGING THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 30
Music Director Rodney Gehrke will offer some perspectives on our wonderful hymn tradition after church on August 30. We will look at representative examples of different styles of hymnody found in Hymnal 1982 and in LEVAS, and we will look at how hymns are most effectively used in the liturgy. The focus will be mostly on  singing, so we will meet in the church near the organ.
