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.

LENTEN ADULT FORUMS.  The exciting series of Adult Forums for Lent continues after the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services in the Fireplace Room.
Introducing Centering Prayer - March 15 and 22.
Beth Wigen will lead a two-part introduction to Centering Prayer.  On March 15 Beth will present a brief history of contemplative practice in the Christian tradition and will discuss how Centering Prayer is related to that practice.  She will include a couple of exercises in anticipation of the forums on March 22, which will address the “mechanics” of Centering Prayer.  What is it?  How do you do it?  What if it’s not working?

The anthems will include "Like As the Hart" by Herbert Howells (1892-1983) and a very recent piece by Fraser Wilson, "Thou Evermore of Evermore," based on a traditional Scots Gaelic prayer. As always, a lovely reception hosted by Joan and Jodi Scherer will follow the liturgy. Invite your friends and family!
