EASTER EGG HUNT (HOSTED BY WINTER PLAY GROUP), Tuesday, April 16th, 10am

We are looking forward to stepping into the Easter season next week and perhaps some warmer, spring weather. This week to celebrate, Winter Play Group is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt for children 0-5, and we’d love to have you join us! The hunt begins at 10:00 am, Tuesday, April 16th at All Saints Anglican Cathedral in the Lower Hall of the church. Park in the All Saints Lot, and come in the side downstairs door. Hope you can join us!

Please send a quick note of RSVP (including how many children) to office@allsaintsamesbury.org, so we can plan accordingly.

NO CROSS TRAINING on EASTER
There will be no cross training held the week of 4/21- in observances of Easter. Please join us for this week’s Holy Week Services.

ESL CLASSES AT ASAC
We will be beginning class on April 22nd, and running through June 10th (Monday evenings from 6-8pm). This is likely our last term. Amesbury Public Schools will be beginning an Adult ESL class next fall in the evenings and we’d like to support this effort and recognition from the town. We have filled a void for the last 7 years. Thank you to Patty and her team for their many years of faithful ministry. Stay tuned for other ways that we can reach out to our neighbors!

HELP EMPOWER YOUNG LEADERS
Early this summer (June 17-23, 2019) Fr. Craig Vickerman will be leading over a dozen ADNE youth to the ACNA Provincial Youth Gathering (PYG) being held in Dallas Texas. The Vickerman family (Fr. Craig, Anna, Alethea and Andrew) were a vital part of our All Saints community during Craig’s time at seminary, and now serve at All Saints Attleboro.

The PYG presents us with a direct opportunity to support youth in our Diocese with funds, prayers, and commitment to the constant hope of enabling more young people to follow and deepen their walks with Jesus.

Our vestry has established a “Growing Young” fund in our budget to invest in developing the leadership and discipleship of young people in our church and diocese. We’ve committed $500 toward supporting the youth who are participating in the PYG. Would you consider adding you financial support as well? We’d love to reach and exceed $1000 to bless these young people and to encourage Craig’s excellent leadership with youth in our diocese.

If you’re led to give, please make a check to ASAC, and write “Provincial Youth Gathering” in the memo line. Our treasurer, Nate Etu, will write one check on behalf of ASAC to the diocesan fundraising effort.

SUPPORT RACHEL DANLEY
Our vestry is pleased to partner with ASAC member Rachel Danley in her ministry of training and equipping disciples. In the Fall of 2019, she will be entering a three-year doctoral program in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

ASAC will be providing Rachel with financial infrastructure and oversight in the form of a giving platform (Tithe.ly) and a funds-held account within our bookkeeping.

This will allow those who have been investing in Rachel’s ministry with InterVarsity over the past decade to continue supporting her in ministry in this new phase, while maintaining good fiscal oversight and transparency for her support.

Read more about Rachel’s ministry the ASAC blog posting titled “Renewed Callings.”

DONATE FOR JAMES PLACE YARD SALE
Our campus partner, James Place, is holding a Yard Sale on Saturday April 27. They welcome donations from All Saints in their fundraising efforts. Donations may be placed on the porch of the Parish House. They cannot accept TV’s, computers, or encyclopedia-type books that they would have to pay to get rid of if they don’t sell. They can accept small furniture such as small chairs or end tables, but cannot accept recliners, couches, or other large furniture or appliances.

As a separate fundraiser, they are collecting bagged used clothing. They will be paid by the pound for the clothing they collect.
