A message from Fr. Ryan:

preschool 2013
This past Tuesday, another school year began for All Saints' Preschool. We are happy to share that the Preschool is fully enrolled for this school year and remains an important community outreach ministry of the Church.

All Saints' Preschool is committed to nurturing and inspiring students to "Realize Their Personal Best" amid a loving, innovative, and dynamic early childhood educational environment. The Preschool's goal is to provide the foundation necessary for students to thrive emotionally, physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. With each child entrusted to our care, All Saints' is devoted to building their self-esteem, instilling a passion for learning, and fostering their ethical and moral development. We are blessed with an experienced and passionate team of educators who create an atmosphere that offers an appropriate balance between academics and creative expression-with an emphasis on having fun!

If you are not familiar with the Church's Preschool ministry, please let me know and I will happily arrange a tour of the facility and an opportunity to observe the school day in action.

Prayer for the School Year:
O Eternal God, bless all schools, colleges, and universities and especially All Saints, that they may be lively centers for sound learning, new discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom; and grant that those who teach and those who learn may find you to be the source of all truth; through your Holy Name. Amen. 
Yours in Christ,
Rector, All Saints' Episcopal Church
Youth Mahalo Mission Presentation
2013 miss presentation
On Sunday, August 4, the Ke Akua Youth Group of All Saints' Church cooked up breakfast for church members before their mission presentation. It was their way of thanking the congregation for all of their support and generosity that helped them to do their mission service on O'ahu in June. Parents were also helping in the Sloggett kitchen as they churned out scrambled eggs, Portuguese sausage and links, hash brown potatoes, fruit and pastries. 

President Alanna Bauman greeted everyone and then a video was shown about their mission work. The young missioners-- Alanna Bauman, Jannin Hashizume, Michelle LaMadrid, Casey Nakamura, Reis Nakamura, Shane Nishioka-Healy and Ty Shiramizu (Joni Hashizume was ill) then shared reflections of their trip and how it impacted them. Also accompanying them on their mission was chaperone Jan Hashizume and Family Ministries leader Sybil Nishioka, plus Fr. Ryan, who joined the group for a couple days.

2013 miss presentation
Many thanks to Fr. Ryan for his expertise in getting the entire sound system and equipment set up, and to everyone that supported our youth!  The video will be posted on the website shortly, and will also include reflections that were not in the original video showing.

Other packaged and canned goods are always welcome as well as monetary donations, and can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday.
FUTSAL in the Gym is Back! 
futsal group
By popular demand, All Saints Indoor Sports has started up futsal again! Anyone interested in participating can join in Thursday evenings in the gym from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Thank you to our youth group for taking the responsibility for keeping this program active! We are also grateful to the support of the high school coaches who look at this program as a great way to keep their soccer players in shape as well as their ball skills. Spread the word and come on down!
Hale Lani Seeking Volunteers
Kids sectionHale Lani Christian Store has been operating for nearly 8 years now, and continues to provide great Christian products to the community. The store is run by volunteers 6 days a week with 3 hour shifts. We are currently seeking persons to help "fill in the gaps" when our regular volunteers go on vacation or need time off.  If you are interested, please e-mail the store or call Sybil at 651-7773. Absolutely no experience is necessary, and the slow pace of the store is a perfect chance to catch up on reading, hobby or computer work.
Save the Date!
Homecoming Sunday, September 8
(formerly Kick-Off Sunday)
Join us for a festive Homecoming Eucharist during the 9:30 am service with potluck to follow, on Sunday, September 8. The service will feature the return of the All Saints' Choir and regular Sunday school classes from their summer break. In addition, we will bless the children and youth of the parish and Fr. Ryan will be preaching a "children's homily" for the children of God, young and young at heart--whether you are 5 or 95 the message will speak to you! 
We want to encourage everyone to invite a family member, friend, and/or work colleague to the service who has never been to All Saints', or someone who has fallen away from our 'ohana. This one-of-a-kind festive service and potluck will certainly feed your soul and stomach.
We also pray it is an opportunity for us to share our wonderful Church 'ohana with others outside our normal worshiping community. Mark the date in your calendar and begin spreading the word. More details to follow soon! Mahalo nui loa!


Mark your calendars!
Saturday Market Hearing Coming Up
Saturday market collage
The next step in the process for the Saturday Market permit continues with a public hearing scheduled for Tuesday, September 10, at 9:00 am. Spearheading this effort is Junior Warden, David Murray, who encourages all those available to turn out and support this endeavor. 

As you may recall, All Saints' held two markets last year to test the waters, and there was a lot of support from local vendors who are seeking a venue to sell their products. Saturday Markets would take place on the first Saturday of each month, and possibly more often during the summer months. 

We are deeply grateful to church member Galen Nakamura from the law firm of Shiramizu, Loo & Nakamura, who has taken on the task pro bono. 8 years ago, Curtis Shiramizu handled the year-long process for Hale Lani's permit, also pro bono.  Mahalo!!!  For more information and details on the hearing, see David Murray.
