ST. AIDAN'S RENOVATIONS- AUGUST 1-12th- St. Aidan's will be undergoing floor renovations starting next week, August 1st. Access to the building will be limited during that time. ADNE and ASAC offices will be open regular hours, but personnel will be working from off-site to accommodate the work. Please e-mail or call as needed.
GOSNELL FAMILY FAREWELL- 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. We were grateful to celebrate with them last week on their last Sunday.
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."
MISSIONARIES FRED AND CAROL SCHAEFFER-- On August 4th, we’ll welcome our missionaries Fred and Carol Schaeffer, who serve with A.C.T.S. (Aboriginal Christian Training Services) in Australia. They’ll be offering a brief update on their ministry activity during the announcements time, and then will be available during the coffee hour following the service.
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.
