Hello, friends and families of All Saints!
I hope this finds you all well as we continue to move forward in the 2020-2021 school year. We are finally on the edge of our own program year beginning! At this time, our gatherings will continue to be offered virtually to abide by the recommendations and guidelines set out by Bishop Matt Gunter, with assistance and advice from the Diocesan COVID-19 Task Force. While I understand this may not be ideal or probable for some families, we do want to still offer modified ways to gather until it is safe for larger groups to congregate again in the future.
Youth Group Kick-Off: For those families with students in grades 5-12, we will start up virtual Youth Group gatherings via Zoom beginning Wednesday, October 7 from 7:00-7:45pm (Compline will still be offered via the All Saints Church Facebook page at 7:45pm for any students wishing to help lead). Zoom links will be sent out ahead of time via the Weekly Update email list each Wednesday. If you have any questions or wish to be added to the email list, please contact me, Erin Wolf, at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Sunday School Kick-Off: For those in grades 4K and up, you’re welcome to join in for virtual Sunday School gatherings via Zoom beginning Sunday, October 11 from 9:00-9:25am (as we don’t want to be late for worship at 9:30am). Zoom links will be sent out ahead of time via the Weekly Update email list each Wednesday. As mentioned above, contact me for further assistance.
Adult Chaperones Needed: Parents and adults of All Saints: I need at least ONE other adult (though TWO are preferred) to assist me with virtual gatherings as we maintain Safeguarding guidelines in digital spaces. If you are interested in helping, please contact me via email or call/text for more information.
Diocesan Fall Lock-In: Due to changes in the current recommendations and guidelines set-out for diocesan gatherings, the annual Youth Fall Lock-In has been postponed. However, there will still be a virtual offering that Friday night, Oct. 16, open to all ages! Read below for more information.
