from the youth minister
No Sunday School or Youth Group on Sunday, December 1st due to the holiday weekend. However, all are encouraged to be present for both the 1st Sunday of Advent and our first Sunday with Fr. Christopher Wilkerson!
#AdventWord: For those seeking a new way to explore and experience Advent this year, consider checking out #AdventWord, a global, online calendar. Meditations and images will be offered daily through Virginia Theological Seminary each day beginning Sunday, Dec. 1. These can be found through email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and American Sign Language videos on YouTube. This year, meditations will be offered in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
Banner Candles: On each of the four Sundays of Advent, we will be “lighting” our Advent banner (Velcro felt flames) and having a short prayer to go with it at the start of the 10:00am service. Any children & older students are welcome to participate. If your student would like to assist, please contact Erin Wolf at email@example.com.
Dec. 8: St. Nicholas will be visiting All Saints once again! Parishioners & children are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toy or book to give to a child staying at Harbor House this holiday season. All donations will be taken over during the week following, so if you miss bringing a gift on Sunday, please get it to All Saints no later than NOON on Wednesday, Dec. 11. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Kids’ Day In: Kids ages 4-11 are welcome to Kemper Hall from 1:00-4:00pm. Students in grades 6-12 & adult leaders are needed to assist with the festivities for the day. Also this year, Youth Choir will meet from 1:00-2:00pm with the adult choir in the church then join the event after. Non-choir students will have activities going during that time. While there is no cost to attend, all must sign-up. CLICK HERE to save your spot either as a participant or a volunteer!
Youth Group Adults Needed: As we require a minimum of two adults present for Youth Group gatherings. Please contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org for further info. THANK YOU—we greatly appreciate you, your time, and your presence!
