Work Day This Saturday, February 28

It's our monthly work day this Saturday, February 28.  There's lots on the list to do that includes the usual general cleaning of the Church, Memorial Hall, Peace Garden and gym kitchen, plus cleaning the office windows, blinds and repairing the bathroom sink, clearing out the Healing Chapel, repairing the church bulletin board, replace light in nave candelabra, and more! Come on down anytime between 8:00 AM - 12:00 Noon.  Many hands make light work! 
The Daughter's of the King Installation This Sunday
The installation of a new chapter of The Order of the Daughter's of the King (DOK) will be taking place during the 9:30 service this Sunday, March 1. Linda Crocker, who has been a member of the DOK back on the mainland, introduced it here at All Saints', during the Ministry Fair on Homecoming Sunday. 

There are currently four other chapters in the Diocese of Hawai'i, and the All Saints' Chapter will make it five. Their mission is "... the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism."  To learn more about DOK, visit the Diocesan website HERE, and also the national organization's website HERE.
STEWARDSHIP SPOTLIGHT
By Bill Caldwell, Stewardship Chair:
Ke Akua in the Abrahamic Tradition: Part III

Christianity is unique among the major religions in that it is monotheistic, proclaiming belief in the one true God, and yet Trinitarian, teaching that God exists in three forms, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Last week we examined the mystery of the Trinity in some detail and were left with one conclusion.  God is Love. 

 

Christians are not alone in this basic understanding.  Our brothers and sisters in the Abrahamic Tradition, Christians, Muslims, and Jews, share this core belief.  It is my hope that through knowledge of our similarities and differences all of us who trace our roots back to Abraham can work together in service to God.  


 

Please join me this week in learning more about the oldest recorded monotheistic faith, Judaism. Click HERE to read an article by Norton Herbst that asks this question.

 
March Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu
During the month of March, the ladies of the ECW will be making a special collection of bar soap and shampoo for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Donations of canned and packaged goods are always welcome as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. 
March Saturday Market: 
Going Green!
Vendor Registration Now Open
The next Saturday Market will be taking place on March 14, and it's all about recycling!

Youth Continue Pastoral Services

Last week we introduced 'Ohana Outreach to help our members that may need a helping hand in times of ill health or other circumstances. For the past few years, the Ke Akua Youth Group has been available to assist members on Sunday afternoons. Tasks such as washing cars, windows, yard work and general cleaning are just some of the services they can do... plus they'll even bring you lunch or snacks! Please e-mail Family Ministries leader, Sybil Nishioka, to make arrangements for a pastoral visit by the youth at halelani@hawaiiantel.net. 
ONGOING REMINDERS:
2015 Relay for Life Fundraising
Luminarias on Sale After Sunday Services!
The Ke Akua Youth Group and ECW are teaming up again to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, and participating in this year's Relay for Life at Hanapepe on April 25-26. Last year, they set a personal team record raising over $4,000! We are once again asking for your support to help raise funds in a variety of ways:

Luminaria Purchase a luminaria! Luminarias will be on sale after Sunday services for $5.00 each. You can choose to decorate your own bag with the name of a loved one that has battled or is battling cancer, or the youth will decorate one for you. 

Make an online donation! Visit the Relay for Life website HERE and be sure to donate to the All Saints Angels team!  

Visit our fundraising booth! We will have a booth at the next two Saturday Markets on March 14 and April 11. We will have luminarias and a variety of theme items for sale.

Our King Shakes Up Lent Madness!!!
Lent madness
King Kamehameha IV won his first round in Lent Madness, a fun online activity that takes place each year during Lent.

After a runaway battle against Archbishop William Laud, the Thursday blog on the Lent Madness site read, "Yesterday we saw one of the greatest routs in Lent Madness history with Kamehameha spanking William Laud 84% to 16%. He'll go on to face David Oakerhater in the Round of the Saintly Sixteen."

Thank you to everyone that voted. Even Bishop Bob, a huge supporter of Lent Madness, commented on their site during the King's battle. If you haven't checked Lent Madness out yet, please do. It's really a great and fun way to learn about the different Saints on our calendar. A different battle takes place each day, Monday through Friday, during Lent, with winners advancing on to another round until the final battle for the Golden Halo.

King Kamehameha IV will be  up again on Friday, March 13, against David Oakerhater. Mark your calendars and be sure to vote for our King, but in the meantime, be sure to join in the fun and learn about the Saints! You can learn more about Lent Madness HERE. 
All Saints' Video: Year in Review Online

The annual Year in Review video that is usually shown at the Annual Meeting made a belated debut at the recent Shrove Tuesday gathering in the Rectory on February 17. The 20-minute video features highlights of the activities of All Saints and its members in chronological order from January through December, and is now available for viewing on the website HERE, or go directly to the VIMEO site HERE.  
Bishop's Scholarships and Grants through the Diocese
The Bishop's Scholarship Funds are now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 school year, as well as the 1% Diocesan Council Grants.

To view the complete eligibility criteria, application process and form, click HERE. Deadline to apply is March 26.

Grant requests are reviewed quarterly. Deadlines are the 20th of the month in February, May, August and October.
Worship Enhancements Available!
Dont' forget to ask for a headset or large-print service bulletin! 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.

Second Sunday of Lent

O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious
to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and
hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
