GOSNELL FAMILY FAREWELL, NEXT SUNDAY, JULY 21ST
The ASAC family has been blessed by the Gosnell family over this last year, and we are grateful for their work, ministry and friendship among us. Join us to celebrate and send them off with a reception following service on Sunday, July 21st.
Fr. Adam, Rebecca, Joseph, and Violet are moving to his parents' in Austin, TX for a season of preparation and fundraising before moving to Chicago, IL to work with Canon Alex and Tamara Cameron and the Isaiah 40 Foundation. They will be working alongside the Camerons, as Isaiah 40 works to bring its vision for the healing and wholeness of church leaders into partnership with the Greenhouse Movement, a ACNA church planting network in the Midwest. Fr. Adam will be involved especially in the areas of Spiritual Formation, Leadership Development, and Operations.
If you're interested in supporting Father Adam's ministry by prayer or financial giving (or both!) here are some specifics. You can pray for (a) our finding a place to live, preferably in a kid-friendly neighborhood. Rebecca particularly would prefer a fenced-in yard! You can also pray for (b) our on-going support-raising efforts. If you're interested in giving to Father Adam's ministry, giving will continue (for the time being) through the Diocese in New England website, ad-ne.org. Click "Go ALL IN," "Ministry Fund" and select your payment preferences with "Adam Gosnell support fund."
GIVE TO ALL SAINTS ONLINE
As we often find ourselves away from home during the summer months, don’t forget that you can always continue to support All Saints’ via its online giving platform, Tithe.ly. It’s quick, user-friendly, and you can choose where you’d like your gift to be directed—general offering, benevolence fund, etc.
ALLERGY AWARENESS TRAINING (AVAILABLE ONLINE)
On Sunday June 9th we had a great turnout for “Choke Safe” Training during Cross Training after church. As we move towards obtaining our License for our kitchen there are a number of certificates that we need obtain in order to be compliant with the standards set by the state of Massachusetts. The final certificate is for Allergy Awareness Training. This is easy and can be done at home on your home computer. The cost is $10, which will be covered by our Hospitality Budget. If you follow the link below, watch the slide show and print out a certificate (and bring it in to the office) you can help us obtain our kitchen license. If you have questions please contact Patty Champion firstname.lastname@example.org
