January 24 - Come on Down!

  • Installing a new door on the gym & general cleaning of the building and the kitchen
  • Clean church windows
  • Work on the bell tower
  • Work in the Peace Garden
  • Light pruning of trees
  • Putting our Nativity Scene back in storage
  • Set-up tent and move tables in preparation for Sunday's breakfast and refreshments

Many hands make light work, so come on down, do a little work, enjoy light refreshments, talk story, and enjoy God's creation!  

This Sunday, January 25
This year's Annual Meeting will be held between the two services on Sunday, January 25, from 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM. There will be a breakfast potluck to kick-off the meeting, so feel free to bring some sort of breakfast item to share!

Celebrating the Life of Louise Yates
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Louise Yates. Louise, a long-time member who served in various roles throughout the years, had been in a long battle with cancer. She passed away on January 16, surrounded by loved ones. Louise had recently retired from her job at Wilcox Hospital and Clinical Labs Hawaii as a pathology transcriptionist, working for as long as her health would allow. She loved to work with flowers and plants and would often be seen quietly tending to them on property.

A Celebration of Louise's Life will be held on Saturday, January 31, 2015, at 10:00 AM. Visitation will begin at 9:00 AM. Private inurnment and refreshments will follow. Please keep her daughters, Monica and Marci, and their families in your prayers.

Member Danny Bernal, who works for Blue Dolphin, has arranged special pricing for a tour on Saturday, January 31, with check-in at 4:00 PM. The cost is only $51. Space is limited. Interested persons should e-mail David Murray for details and to reserve a spot.

Worship Enhancements Available!
All Saints' 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.
