Wonderful Moments at Homecoming Sunday 

Sunday, September 8, was Homecoming Sunday, with the return of the choir and Sunday school from their summer break. From the choir's cheerful entrance to All Things Bright & Beautiful, and the procession of the Sunday school children, it promised to be a special service. Fr. Ryan blessed the children and teachers before they headed off to their classes, and continued the service with a powerful sermon on discipleship. 
During the Peace, the children returned to church, and Fr. Ryan had a special child-friendly "altar" set up for the Eucharist. Children were able to sit up close and actually take part in The Great Thanksgiving. It was a memorable moment, as 6-year old Tyler held up the "Body of Christ" and 3-year old Shealee held up the "Blood of Christ". Then middle-schoolers Raiden and Braden offered up the "Gifts of God for the people of God"!

Following the service was a festive potluck on the lawn, as members feasted and fellowshipped... yes, it was another wonderful Sunday at All Saints'!

Ryan, Choir Director Curtis Shiramizu, Faith Shiramizu, Jan Hashizume, Gail Weir, Victor Punua, Jr., Tracy Bauman, Jean Nakamoto, Chris Wataya, Mary Schulz; Center collage: Joyce Anglemyer, children at the "altar", Raiden and Braden; Bottom collage: Delicious goodies on the buffet, David Crocker, David Murray, Bill Brown, Diane Sato holding Kenzie, Mabel Antonio and Triton.  (In case you missed it, a video on Homecoming Sunday will be posted soon.)
Saturday Markets are a GO!!!

It's official! The Use Permit for All Saints' Saturday Markets was approved this past Tuesday, and planning for the first "official" market is underway. Many thanks to Junior Warden, David Murray, for spearheading this effort, and HUGE MAHALOS to the law firm of Shiramizu, Loo & Nakamura, for handling the legal process pro bono. It's been nearly a year since our Senior Warden, Galen Nakamura, started the process, but it was partner Laurel Loo, who represented All Saints' at the hearing in Galen's absence. The County Council was extremely supportive of this event with a unanimous decision! 

Thank you also to church members that were able to take time out from their busy lives to show their support at the hearing including Bill and CeCe Caldwell, Jean Nakamoto, Dustin Moises, Diane Sato, Mary Smith, Chris Wataya and of course David Murray and Bill Brown.

Saturday Markets will take place on the first Saturdays of every month on the lawn, and will feature local vendors and their products. Stay tuned for updates, and if you are interested in either helping to coordinate this activity or participate, contact the church office. 
Yarn Donation Mahalos
