Workday this Saturday
September 27
Workday 2013
It's that time! A church work day is coming up this Saturday, September 27, from 8:00 AM - Noon.  Come on down and help us keep the property in ship shape! This Saturday will include projects at the preschool as well as our usual cleaning of church windows and other areas of the property--- remember, many hands make light work! 

We are also in need of helping hands with our Monday Crew Ministry. This faithful group of people have been the ones to clean and straighten the church every Monday morning, 52 weeks of the year. Along with vacuuming and wiping down the pews and other general cleaning, they also do small repairs and handiwork around the property. The group has generally been made up of retired members, but has shrunk down considerably over the years as folks have moved or passed on.  If you are available Monday mornings, please consider helping out.  You can call the church office at 822-4267 for more information.
Aloha 'Oe & A Hui Hou, Janet Wilson
Going Away Party on Saturday, September 27
Members David Murray and Bill Brown are hosting a going away party for Janet Wilson, on Saturday, September 27, at their home, beginning at 3:00 PM. They invite the entire All Saints' 'ohana to join them (keiki included)! Come early before heading to the movies, or stay late if movies aren't your thing!

Janet has taken a new position with her current company in Florida, and her last day with us will be on September 28. 

Her presence will be deeply missed. Although her role as Senior Warden has been for just a few months, she has been an integral part of our worship services, community, and 'ohana for many years, serving as an Usher, Lay Reader, and co-founder of the Heavenly Hikes ministry. She will be taking that last hike to Maha'ulepu (see article below), so be sure to join her.

We will miss your gentle soul and that beautiful smile, filled with God's grace. May you continue to be blessed and grow in faith and love. Aloha and best wishes to you Janet...

David and Bill's Address: 1667 Kanepoonui Road, Kapa'a. Party is a "bit of a pot luck" meaning you are welcome to bring a pupu or beverage if you like, but do NOT feel obligated to bring something. For more information and directions on where to park, call 821-8083, or 651-2001, or e-mail them.
Movie Night on the Lawn this Saturday, September 27 
It's our second movie night of the year, and it will be featuring two blockbuster hits, Disney's Frozen and Godzilla!  

Be sure to come early to reserve a good spot, and then settle back and enjoy some great food from the concession run by the Ke Akua Youth Group. By popular demand, Uncle Wayne's onolicious Portuguese Bean Soup will be served up along with the usual favorites, dollar hot dogs, chili, SPAM musubi, 50 cent popcorn, loaded hot chocolate and MORE!

For more information, see the flyer at the bottom of this e-mail or visit the webpage HERE. Bring the whole family for a great evening under the stars!
Heavenly Hikes Heads to Maha'ulepu
Sunday, September 28

This month's Heavenly Hikes will take hikers to the beautiful Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail on the south shore or Kaua'i, on Sunday, September 28. It is classified as EASY and will be a total of 4 miles round trip. Folks can plan to meet after the second service to carpool or caravan at 11:30 AM, or meet up at the Shipwrecks Beach parking lot just past the main entrance of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Poipu, at 12:15 PM. For more information, visit the webpage HERE.
Worship Enhancements Now Available!
All Saints' now has portions of the service bulletin in large-size print to make reading along with the service easier for those who prefer it. There are also a few headsets available that will help folks hear the service more clearly, or for those in the back rows that might have a hard time understanding or hearing what is being said. Both items are available through our ushers who will be more than happy to set you up!

The nursery has also been hooked up so that the service can be heard through a speaker in that room. Parents with very young children can now sit and relax with them while they play, and are also able to hear the service.
Blessing of the Animals 
Sunday, October 5

It's that time of year when our furry, finned and feathered friends come in for a blessing!  This year's Blessing of the Animals will take place on Sunday, October 5, during the 9:30 AM service. If you can't bring in your pet, feel free to bring a photo.
Care Packages for Our College Students
Our Episcopal Church Women (ECW) will be preparing their annual Care Packages for our young adults that are away at college. So that we can be sure that no one is overlooked, be sure to supply the address of a student you know to a member of the ECW, or e-mail it to Diane Sato by October 12.
Honoring Our Holy Sovereigns
Sunday, October 12
Our annual celebration in honor of our Holy Sovereigns, King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, will be taking place on Sunday, October 12 during the 9:30 AM service. All are invited to attend this very special service that features Hawaiian dance, music and readings in Hawaiian and English. Following the service, our usual Hawaiian luncheon will be served up on the lawn. If you would like to help with bringing a dish, please e-mail David Murray on the areas we need help with.

The 46th Annual Meeting of Convention

The annual Meeting of Convention for the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i will be taking place on October 24 & 25, at The Cathedral of St. Andrew in Honolulu. The proposed resolutions and information on candidates for the diocesan ministries and committees are now posted and available for viewing on the Diocesan Website HERE. All members are encouraged to review the postings and to provide input and share their thoughts with our convention delegates and/or Vestry. This year's delegates are: Cece Caldwell, Chris Neumann, Mary Schulz, and Curtis Shiramizu. David Murray and Mary Wilson are alternates.

This year, two of our youth members will be a part of the meeting and will share their experiences at the Episcopal Youth Event that took place in Philadelphia this past summer. Mason Tabura, who is also the youth representative on the Vestry, and Grace Yatsko, the current President of the Ke Akua Youth Group, will be flying over on Friday night to join a select group of youth in the Diocese for their presentation on Saturday.
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.
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).

(The Newspaper of the Diocese)
Editor's Note: The Parish Spotlight is a feature that appeared previously in our printed newsletter, "The Kauaian", and will now be featured periodically in this online E-News. 

Steve Bauman
Our Humble Steward Extraordinaire

All Saints' members are faithful, dedicated, generous and giving of themselves. One such member that is all that and more is Steve Bauman, husband of Tracy Bauman, and father to Adam and Alanna. 

For as long as Steve has been at All Saints', he has worked behind the scenes, never expecting or wanting thanks for all that he does. It is likely this humble servant of God, who shuns the spotlight, will find this article a bit unnerving. His beliefs and actions are truly Christ-centered; a "steward extraordinaire" who gives purely from a sense of being blessed and wanting to share those blessings.  

Steve is originally from California, and moved to Hawai'i as a teenager when his dad's job brought them to the islands. He graduated from Kailua High School on the Windward side of O'ahu, and moved to Kaua'i in the late 70s. This is where he met his wife Tracy, started a family, and became a part of the All Saints' 'ohana almost 25 years ago.

In the picture above, Steve is standing in front of one of the wooden crosses he built for the Peace Garden. It is actually the third large wooden cross he has built for the church, with two others that served as our "Easter crosses". He has also crafted smaller wooden crosses for the acolytes to wear as pendants, and has never accepted a dime for his many gifts.

Steve took early retirement from Coca Cola several years ago, and now spends his time doing what he loves-- creating, tinkering, fixing, re-purposing and refurbishing things. He gardens, does lots of handy work, and has been seen quietly coming down to All Saints to clean windows and do any task that is asked of him. He is always one of the first to offer assistance to help set up or breakdown at any church event or activity, and for many years, has served as one of the "go to guys" for projects around the church, including installing the accordion doors in Memorial Hall. He takes great care and craftsmanship in all that he does, reflecting the love of our Lord in his work.  

So we give thanks and praise to this wonderful man of God whom we are so blessed to have in our 'ohana.  Mahalo nui loa, Steve Bauman! 
Homecoming Sunday & Ministry Fair
On Sunday, September 7, Homecoming Sunday welcomed back the choir and regular Sunday school classes during the 9:30 service, and this year, a mini Ministry Fair was held between the two services. Information about the different ministries of the church were set up on tables around the lanai.  Visitors and members could browse and learn more about the different offerings, and sign up for more information or to volunteer. 

Pictured above, April Womack holds up the display for The Episcopal Church Women (ECW). A new ministry being offered was shared by Linda Crocker (pictured in navy blue second picture from right), who is a member of The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK). Her table grew great interest as many of the women in the ECW women's group, had never heard about it. DOK is a prayer ministry that is established nationwide, and includes women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. To learn more about DOK in Hawai'i, you can visit the Diocesan website HERE, or see Linda.  

There was a new face in the choir, with Bill Brown joining the dedicated group of singers. Pictured above left, Jan Hashizume stares up at the new choir microphone towering overhead, while at right, Fr. Ryan's new "toy" (Sound Board & Mixer) features enough bells and whistles that would delight any sound person or roadie.  
The Sunday school also saw some new faces, and the children named their different rooms and drew pictures to accompany that theme. The pieces of art created with the room names, Jesus Lovers and God's Gems, are now adorning the doors of the classrooms.  Returning teachers, Dianne Tabura and Sybil Nishioka, are joined by youth member Grace Yatsko, who has been volunteering at the Preschool for the past year. They will be assisted by middle school youth and high school youth on a rotation basis. They are looking forward to a bright year filled with the enthusiasm and excitement of our youngest members!
First Movie Night of 2014 Draws a Huge Crowd!

The annual series of movie nights on the lawn continues its popularity with the community, drawing in well over 400 people to its first showing on Friday, September 12. The Lego Movie, popular not only with children, but teens and adults as well, saw a packed lawn with folks arriving an hour before the show started.  

The Ke Akua Youth Group, severely impacted by the loss of graduates and parents, had their best night of sales to date, with dollar hot dogs, chili and 50 cent popcorn flying out as fast as they could make it. Despite it being her birthday, Faith Shiramizu left the audience to go make a run to the store for supplies that were running low!

Unfortunately, a steady drizzle dampened the night just before The Lego Movie ended, leaving a much smaller crowd for the second feature, Divergent.  The rain stopped shortly after the show began, and this exciting drama garnered a hefty applause at the end from the crowd that stayed, clearly happy for doing so. 

Two movie nights remain! Be sure to come on by Saturday, September 27 and October 18, to enjoy some great food, movies and a fun evening with family and friends under the stars!
