Church Work Day this Saturday, August 22

This Saturday is our regular monthly church work day.  Lots of cleaning and straightening in the usual areas.  Be sure to come by anytime between 8:00 AM - Noon... many hands make light work!
Organ Committee Meeting Coming Up
There will be a meeting for the Organ Committee coming up on Tuesday, September 8, at 6:30 PM, in the church office. The committee will be fine tuning plans for the pipe organ that will be presented to the Vestry.

If you would like more information or to be involved in this committee, please e-mail Morris Wise.
Seeking E-Waste Collector for September & October
We are so grateful to Cece Caldwell for being such a committed E-Waste collector at the Saturday Markets! Unfortunately, the Caldwell's will be leaving for a few months for Bill's surgery, and we are looking for anyone willing to cover the E-Waste collection in September and October.  

A truck is preferred so folks can easily drop off their electronics, which is then taken to the County Recycle station in Lihue.  They have workers there that unload it for you so you don't have to worry about lifting.  If you are willing and able, please e-mail or see David Murray or Sybil Nishioka.
August Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu
canned goods During the month of August, the ladies of the ECW will be making a special collection of canned goods to include tuna, fruit, vegetables, ravioli and spaghetti, for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Donations of other 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. 
Save the Date! Sunday, October 11
Celebrating Our Holy Sovereigns

All Saints' has been celebrating our Holy Sovereigns, King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma, for the past several years during the month of October.  Although the actual feast day is in November, it has become a tradition at All Saints' to hold it on the second Sunday of October, and this year it will be on October 11.  Save the date and be sure to attend this beautiful service and reception afterwards.
Volunteer Sign Up Sheets at Sunday Services!

If you'd like to volunteer for Laundry Love Kauai that takes place every first and third Wednesdays of the month, sign-up in the Laundry Love Manual that will be on the entrance table during Sunday services. Folks can sign up to volunteer for specific dates and roles on the volunteer sign-up sheets, and also peruse the operating instructions that contain the responsibilities for each role.  

A few volunteers have already decided which roles they like best, and others are still trying out different areas. Even if all roles are taken on a specific date you are interested in helping at, please show up and help as a Love Ambassador. (There is no limit to the number of Love Ambassadors at any session.) These are our all-around workers who not only interact with patrons, but are key to the smooth flow of the operation, transferring laundry from one area to another.  Love Ambassadors are especially needed to help with folding and bagging when a load is done. 

All are welcome to take part in this rewarding outreach ministry. For more information, visit the LLK webpage HERE.
Vestry Minutes Now Available Online

With the goal of greater transparency, the All Saints' Vestry will publish the approved "Meeting Minutes of the Vestry" on the All Saints' website, Leadership page.  

To view the approved May meeting minutes, click HERE.


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.
Laundry Love Shatters Record Loads!

The word in the community continues to spread with grateful patrons lining up earlier and earlier!  This past Wednesday, August 19, volunteers decided to start 15 minutes earlier to get the line down and moving.  All total, 105 loads of laundry were done, setting a new record! What a difference  a few minutes can make!

Pictured in the top photos from left, Team Leader Geoff Shields talks with Lorna Nishi as she loads up a machine; Wayne Doliente hands soap pods to Mario Antonio, and college student Casey Nakamura loads up laundry into a machine.  At top right, youth group member Raiden and his classmates came to film Laundry Love in action for a school project that could appear in the local PBS television show, Hiki No.  
Joining us during this week's Laundry Love, was Keane Akao, Director of Operations and Congregational Development for the Episcopal Church of West O'ahu, and Shana Ikeda, the Bishop's Warden of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Kapolei.  They are hoping to start up a similar program on West O'ahu and wanted to see it in action. They were fully prepared after reading our manual, and worked hard as Love Ambassadors.  

Above, Kim Shields flashes a shaka with Keane; Shana take a breather while loads are being washed; and mother-daughter team, Janece and Grace Yatsko take a moment to pose before the dryers get filled.  

Don't forget to sign-up and join in on this wonderful ministry!  The Operation Manual with sign up sheets can be found on the table at the church entrance every Sunday.
