March 1, 2012
The highly anticipated arrival of our men and women in uniform is underway with a flurry of activity taking place on the grounds of All Saints'.  If you haven't been by, you'll be in for a surprise!  The kitchen in the gym is now home to the dental care services (who knew!), Memorial Hall is a vision clinic and pharmacy, and the church itself has been transformed into a medical center!  Meantime, work on the deck at the tree is underway, and many Kaua'i residents are taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity.  Be sure to spread the word to your friends and relatives, and be sure to check it out and get checked out yourself!  Remember, it's completely free with no qualifying necessary!  Because of the great turnout, there is a waiting line, so folks are being told to come early.  Pictured below, the military reservists are lined up and awaiting instructions from their commander.

Tropic care line-up 
Our Sunday service on March 4th will take place in the gym, and maybe we'll even get a number of new "recruits" joining us!  In the meantime, parking by the gym is scarce, so if you are planning to visit the Columbarium, graveyard or office, be sure to come in the Sloggett driveway and let the military personnel know you are with the Church.

Don't forget to spread the word!!!
Sunday services on March 4 will be held in the Gym.

Have you registered?  Safeguarding God's Children Classes on Saturday
Safeguarding logoFr. Ben and Rev. Robin Taylor from Christ Memorial will be conducting a Safeguarding God's Children Training Class on Saturday, March 3, at 9:00 a.m. at All Saint's Church. 
Safeguarding God's Children is required of all clergy, Vestry and Bishop's Committee members, and anyone (paid or volunteer) who works with children. This includes Sunday school teachers, youth group leaders, and preschool and school teachers. Anyone in church is encouraged to attend the workshop, to increase the awareness of how to watch for warning signs of child abuse.
The Diocese uses the curriculum put together by the Church Pension Fund that describes the program as follows:  "Safeguarding God's Children provides participants with the information they need to protect the children they know and care for in their personal lives and the ministries in which they serve. The program is based on the philosophy that if every adult can protect just one child, they will forever change one life. If we can all change one life, together we will make a difference in this generation of children."


For those that have already received training, annual "refresher" courses are now required that can be done on-line. 






There will be a farewell potluck party for the Nelson family on Sunday, March 4, after the 9:30 a.m. service.  Don't miss our final festive gathering with Fr. Ben, Linda and Cooper, before they head off to their new home in Texas.

Saturday, March 31 - Mark your calendars!



The Ke Akua Youth Group's Rummage & Bake Sale is being changed to Saturday, March 31.  Due to the activity of Tropic Care on the property, the youth will not be able to store items until after their departure on March 9, so be sure to save up your Spring cleaning items until then.


As you may know, the youth will be heading to Los Angeles this summer to do mission work in Skid Row.  Please keep them in your prayers as they discern and prepare for their trip.

Second Sunday in Lent
O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all who have gone astray from thy ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast the unchangeable truth of thy Word, Jesus Christ thy Son; who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Discernment Day 2012 
The Commission on Ministry will sponsor a Discernment Day for the Diocese on Saturday, March 10, 2012.  It will be held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church (behind the Cathedral) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Discernment Day is a workshop designed for church groups ("congregational discernment committees") who help an individual or one another with answering questions of who God has made them to be and how God calls them to serve. Meeting with a discernment committee is the first step in the ordination process, but discernment committees can be helpful for many people - not just those called to ordination.  For more information and/or to register, click HERE.
