There will be a brief reception following the service. 

MINISTRY LEADERS--SAVE THE DATE: AUGUST 25th - Ministry leaders, please join us following Rachel’s reception on August 25th for a discussion with Vestry officers about how things are going, and how All Saints might better serve those who serve us so well each week. Our hope is to pray and think together about adjustments we may need to make as we get ready for the Fall.

TEMPORARY HOUSING NEEDED- George Cookman has a friend who has need of temporary housing. This could last as long as six months, but needs to be shorter term to give her flexibility as her situation evolves.  We are hoping to find a small furnished apartment for $500 - $1000. If you know someone that has a place that might work, please contact George at 207-313-1762 ASAP. She needs to be within ~20 minutes +/- of Newburyport.

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.
