Homecoming Sunday & Ministry Fair
This Sunday, September 7!!!

The church's calendar year will be kicking off on Homecoming Sunday, September 7, which means the Choir returns and regular Sunday school classes begin. This year will also feature a mini Ministry Fair following both services where members will have an opportunity to learn more about the different ministries at All Saints' and sign-up to be a part of it too! Ministries might include worship (Choir, Altar Guild, Acolytes, Lay Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers), Stewardship, Episcopal Church Women, Family Ministry, Building and Grounds, Hospitality, Order of St. Luke, Vestry and others. If you can't make it to church on this day, just e-mail the church office for information. 
Regular Sunday School Classes Begin

This Sunday is Homecoming Sunday, and regular Sunday School classes will begin. Students and teachers are being asked to report to church first so that Fr. Ryan can do a blessing for the new school year before we head off!  After a group prayer, we will divide up into two separate age appropriate classes.  Looking forward to seeing all of our young ones ready to learn about the Bible and Jesus!
Movie Nights on the Lawn Coming Up!
September 12, 27 & October 18

Movie nights on the lawn will be starting up on Friday, September 12, followed by two Saturday showings on September 27 and October 18. A great line up is in store with the usual double feature films beginning at sundown, and our fabulous concession run by the Ke Akua Youth Group, with dollar dogs, popcorn, chili, loaded hot chocolate and more! Be sure to save the dates and bring the whole family for a fun evening under the stars!  For more information, see the flyer below or visit the webpage HERE, and come early for best seats!
Saturday Market & Swap Meet
Coming Up Saturday, September 13

The monthly Saturday Market takes place this Saturday, from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, in the lawn!  Saturday Markets have moved to second Saturdays, and has opened up to swap meet vendors as well as our regular crafters in the hopes that it will attract more foot traffic.  SPREAD THE WORD AND COME ON DOWN!!!
Electronic Waste Collection 
Dump Run: 
September 13 
It's time to gather up your old electronic waste items and bring them to the church before September 13.  Items can be dropped off at the back of the gym on the covered patio area. There is also be a container for dead batteries that that will be disposed of properly.  The Caldwell's, along with Chris Wataya, are also willing to pick up items from members' homes. If you have any questions or would like to arrange a pick up, call the church office at 822-4267. Be sure to check the list of acceptable items for disposal on the County's Recycle site HERE.
Hand in hand with the Stewardship Committee's focus on the environment, Cece Caldwell reminds us that every little bit of awareness helps, and encourages members to take the Ocean Conservancy Straw Challenge. On their website, it states that "millions of plastic straws pollute our ocean where endangered animals like sea turtles can choke on them. The average American eats out four times a week and almost everyone gets a straw (or two). If we get 25,000 people to skip the straw at restaurants every time, we can keep 5 million plastic straws out of our ocean and landfills in just one year."

Take the Last Straw Challenge: when eating out, ask your waiter or waitress to skip the straw. Click HERE to take the pledge!
September Collection for Hale Ho'omalu 
For the month of September, the ECW will be creating gift packages for expectant moms with baby lotion, shampoo, wash cloths and baby wipes. Members can continue to donate other canned and packaged goods as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. Hale Ho'omalu is a family services center located a half-block away from the church.
Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training
September 13, at St. Michael's
A Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training will be held at St. Michael's in Lihue on Saturday, September 13, from 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM. This training is mandatory for all clergy, staff, Vestry members, Eucharistic Visitors and anyone in a supervisory position. To learn more about The Episcopal Church's Safe Church policy and requirements, click HERE. To register for this class, visit the event webpage HERE.  Hurry, deadline to register is September 4!
All Saints' Holiday Craft Fair
Early Bird Registration is OPEN!!!

This year's Holiday Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, December 6, and early notices have gone out to all past vendors by e-mail. We expect spaces to fill up quickly, so register online early and take advantage of the early bird discount that ends on October 15. Regular contributing church members qualify for one free space in the craft fair, but must utilize a special code to receive this.  Please e-mail Sybil or call her for the code before registering online. 

With over 70 booth spaces, the craft fair is the youth group's largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds from the food booth and booth spaces going directly to their outreach and mission work. Last year's very successful Silent Auction raised over $900 that went to the Episcopal Relief and Development's fund for victim's of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. This year, the youth have chosen the following charities for their silent auction proceeds:  The Red Cross, River of Life Mission (Honolulu) and the American Cancer Society (Relay for Life).
Save the date!
Rattle & Hum Series begins in October
Mark your calendars and get ready for a three-week outreach and discipleship series inspired by U2's 1988 platinum album "Rattle and Hum".  Fr. Ryan leads this class that will take place on Wednesday, October 15, 22 and 29, at 7:00 PM.  More information will be coming out soon.
A/V Heaven at All Saints!
Although many of you know how versatile Fr. Ryan is, some of you may not be aware of his extensive Audio-Visual (A/V) knowledge. At the last work day, old speakers were removed and the "temporary" ones permanently installed on the walls. The sound system itself is nearly complete and includes the ability to program music, new microphones and a control system that will be discreetly set-up near the choir. 

But that's not all--- There are plans for headsets to be purchased so for those that may need boost in volume now and again, you'll be able to "plug-in" and listen to the whole service with clarity.  

But that's not all--- A live audio feed of the service will now be available in the nursery!  Since our open nursery does not have an attendant, parents shared their concerns about missing the sermon if they have to stay with their child.  Now, they are able to listen to the entire service that will come through a wireless sound system hooked up in the nusery!  

But that's not all--- There is discussion about installing a flat screen monitor in Memorial Hall that would give the option of a live-streamed video of the service. It would also be available to the children and youth for their classes, and for church workshops and presentations held in Memorial Hall.

We are so grateful for Fr. Ryan's technology smarts, but once all the equipment is in, there will be a training class for those interested in learning about and caring for the church's A/V system.  This way, members (youth and adults) can take care of the set-up and maintenance of the equipment, so he can focus on being a priest!

 Proper 18

Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for, as
you always resist the proud who confide in their own strength, so you never forsake those who make their boast of your
mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
