Work Day Postponed
September's work day that would normally be held this Saturday, is being postponed until Saturday, October 10, just before our Celebration of the Holy Sovereigns. Although this day is also our Saturday Market & Swap Meet, members can plan to get some cleaning AND shopping done! Details to follow.
This Sunday - September 27
Heavenly Hikes & ʻOhana Beach BBQ

After last month's wet weather forced the cancellation of Heavenly Hikes, this month we attempt the Sleeping Giant trail again. Those interested in joining the hike can meet after the second service at 11:45 AM in the church parking lot to carpool, or you can meet the group at the trail head at noon. The parking lot and trail head are located next to 5290 Haleilio Rd. in the Houselots. For more information, click HERE.
Following Heavenly Hikes, there will be another 'Ohana Beach BBQ at Lydgate Beach Park, from 4:00 - 6:30 PM.  Come join us for food, fun and fellowship! Main dishes and beverages will be provided.  If you are able, please bring a side dish (not required). All are welcome along with family and friends!
Laundry Love Shirts are Available for Pick-up!
Laundry Love Shirts have arrived and will be available for pick up during Sunday services this weekend. For those that pre-ordered shirts, a table will be set up outside the church entrance with the shirts bagged and labeled with your name. An invoice will be included. If you sponsored a shirt(s), that amount will be included on the invoice.

Nursery & Sunday School Volunteers Needed
No Experience Necessary!

The Sunday school program year has begun, and we are still in need of a few more volunteers who are willing to assist our new program leaders in each of the three areas: Nursery (PreK & under), grades K-2, and grades 3-5. Volunteers can choose to participate regularly or on a rotation/on-call basis one Sunday a month. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!  If you like working with children and would like to nurture their faith and knowledge of Jesus and the Bible, please consider joining this wonderful ministry!  Please see Sybil or e-mail her.
Disposable Diapers Requested for Hale Ho'omalu
The ECW is requesting disposable baby diapers as part of their monthly special collection for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Of course canned and packaged foods are always welcome. Monetary donations can also be made. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance. 
Coming Soon! 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.
All Saintsʻ Preschool Annual Fund Campaign
We invite all to participate in the All Saints' Preschool Annual Fund Campaign for 2015-2016; Beautiful Faces.
The Annual Fund allows the school to enrich the learning environment without increasing its operating budget, thus keeping tuition down. As in most independent schools, All Saints' Preschool's tuition alone does not cover the full cost of providing an exceptional education experience. 

All Saints' relies on your annual support to augment our yearly operating budget, and to provide capital enhancements of the school's program and physical plant. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly toward supporting the school's needs and vision. Among the campaign's goals is to cultivate broad support from the All Saints' Church 'Ohana. 

Donations can be sent to the Church/Preschool Office or made online. For more information, visit the Annual Fund Website where you can also download a brochure or make a donation. 
Save the dates!
Movie Nights on the Lawn Coming in October
Mark your calendars and get ready for a month of movies on the lawn! Now in its 7th year, Movie Nights on the Lawn continues to serve the community by offering free double-feature movies and a concession that can feed a family of 4 for under $10!  Yup! Dollar dogs, 50 cent popcorn, chili, SPAM musubi and loaded hot chocolate are just some of the ono grinds being served up by the Ke Akua Youth Group.  The movies are a little late this year due to vendor availability, but great movies are in store!  Click on the flyer to view the full-size version, and visit the webpage HERE for more info. 
On-line Volunteer Sign-Ups Available Now!

Laundry Love Kauai (LLK) takes place every first and third Wednesday of the month and is in constant need of volunteers.

You can view the different responsibilities in the Operating Manual HERE. Better yet, come on down and take part as a Love Ambassador to help in different areas and see what suits you best!  
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.
Mahalo Fr. Shields!

All Saints' welcomed the Rev. Richard Shields this past Sunday, covering for Fr. Ryan who was attending the Vestry retreat in Kokee.  Mahalo Fr. Shields for your great sermon and wonderful presence!

O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing
mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of
your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

Vestry Retreat in Kokee
Last weekend, the Vestry went on a retreat in Koke'e. The retreat provided the Vestry the opportunity, time, and space to prayerfully discern and discuss the future of All Saints'. Next week, in the mail, and also in the e-news and on the All Saints' website, the Vestry will distribute a report to the congregation detailing the action-items that were generated from the Vestry Retreat. Pictured above from left front, Fr. Ryan, Jean Nakamoto, Maricel Baldovino, Daileen Barton; back row, Galen Nakamura, Junior Warden Linda Crocker, Senior Warden David Murray, Mary Smith and Treasurer Jan Hashizume. Three Vestry members were unable to attend the retreat: Bob Terao and Bill Caldwell were both on the mainland and Janis Wright is at home recovering from a fall.  Please keep both Bill and Janis in your prayers as they recuperate.
