Alleluia, Alleluia, ALLELUIA!
"It was a good day at All Saints"
Rummage Sale Mahalos!
Fr. Ryan hit it out of the park last Sunday, despite a last minute change of sermon Saturday evening. He was inspired by what he experienced earlier that day in connection with the August 24 rummage sale for church member, Carrie Sagucio. It certainly took an army of people to make it happen, and the outpouring of love and support was overwhelming. Mahalo to everyone involved!
Items for the sale began appearing the week before, including boxes of brand new items mailed from the mainland! (Thank you Cathy!) On Thursday night, the youth, who were playing futsal in the gym, cut their evening short to set up all the tables and clothing racks. Then early Friday morning, members showed up to haul the mountains of items in Memorial Hall over to the gym, and began the arduous task of sorting, folding and displaying. John Hanaoka said he lost 5 pounds in the process! No surprise as he made countless trips back and forth with a loaded wheelbarrow. Folks trickled in and out all day and night, some rushing home to finish up the baked goods that would also be on sale. 
When the doors opened on Saturday monring, the gym was filled to the brim with furniture, household goods, clothing, books, toys, yummy baked goods and everything inbetween! Mary Wilson, who is a veteran of setting up rummage sales, said this was the most items she's ever seen... that says a lot, coming from someone who was probably involved in the very first sales at All Saints many moons ago!  
The result was nothing short of awesome--- sales and donations mailed in totaled $3,000.00, all of which was given to Carrie to help with her medical bills as she continues her battle with Lupus. But it wasn't the amount of money raised that inspired Fr. Ryan... it was seeing how the entire church family came together to help someone in need... yes, "it was a good day at All Saints"... "it was a great week at All Saints!"  AMEN  
Mahalo to Special Guest, Patti Peebles!
Peebles NewmanOn Sunday, August 27, folks at the second service were treated to a sermon by special guest Patti Peebles, a dear friend of Fr. Ryan, who was vacationing on Kaua'i. Patti is the Chaplain and Youth Minister at St. John's in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, and she shared her wonderful insight and wisdom with us. You can hear Patti's sermon online through Fr. Ryan's Preaching in Paradise link, entitled "God our Stabilizer". Mahalo Patti! Be sure to come back again soon! 
It's right around the corner!
Homecoming Sunday & Potluck, September 8
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 that took a break during the summer. 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 pray it is an opportunity for us to share our wonderful Church 'ohana with others outside our normal worshiping community.

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. 
Mark your calendars!

Picture of the Week
Taking a break from setting up for the rummage sale, youth members Casey Nakamura, Cassie Wilson and Alanna Bauman ham it up with great fun finds. I believe Casey is holding Fr. Ryan's new prized chalice!  
Collections for Hale Ho'omalu 
canned goodsBeginning in September, regular collections will continue for Hale Ho'omalu, a family service center located 1/2 block away from All Saints'. 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. The ECW will be providing specialty bags for the rest of the year as part of their outreach service to Hale Ho'omalu, and will not have special collections for the remainder of the year.  
FUTSAL Every Thursday evening through October! 
Futsal is back in the gym! Anyone interested in participating can join in Thursday evenings in the All Saints' Gym from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Thank you to our youth group for taking the responsibility for keeping this program active! It's a great way to stay in shape and improve your ball handling 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.
