September greetings to all!
As most, if not all, of our students have now started their school year, here’s a prayer courtesy of our friends in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland:
God of Wisdom, we give you thanks for schools and classrooms and for the teachers and students who fill them each day. We thank you for this new beginning, for new books and new ideas. We thank you for sharpened pencils, pointy crayons, and crisp blank pages waiting to be filled. We thank you for the gift of making mistakes and trying again. May all our tools for learning and teaching be a sign that we have everything we need to learn and grow this school year. May we always be guided by your love and grace. Amen.
2021-2022 School Year Update: Due to the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus, we will resume ONLINE-ONLY gatherings for the month of September, and we will keep families in the loop about possible in-person options for October and beyond.
Sunday School will resume from 9:30-10:00am via Zoom on Sunday, September 12 and is open to grades 4K-12. Links & calendars will be sent out the first full week of September.
Youth Group will resume from 7:00-7:45pm via Zoom on Wednesday, September 15 and is open to grades 5-12. Links & calendars will be sent out the first full week of September.
Please also be sure to fill-out and return 2021-2022 Registration and Media Release Form – you can either fill out digitally and email back to me or drop off a hard copy at All Saints. These are helpful to keep track of students & families and grant us permission to use your child(ren)’s photo for All Saints/Youth Ministry purposes. Thank you for helping keep our records current!
You may also follow updates via the CALENDARS page of the youth ministry website. As always, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Blessings on the start of the 2021-2022 school year, whatever that may look like for your family!
