Sunday Communion Service May 3: We will be holding our next online communion service on Sunday, May 3. Friday and Saturday, May 1 and 2, there will be opportunities for you to pick up from the church the pre-consecrated bread and wine, as we did for Easter. Next week’s newsletter will list pick up times.

Local Mission Opportunities: Saturday Grab and Go breakfasts. All Saints is offering a germ-free pre-packaged breakfast for people in our local community. After a three-week pilot, the program is doing well, serving 40-50 people each week. The food is heated and put in a lunch sack in the All Saints kitchen by a “family team” while a second family team distributes the meals from a table in front of the church. Safe distancing, masks, gloves and hygienic practices are strictly enforced. If you would like to volunteer to help, please contact Patty Champion patty.champion@comcast.net

River’s Edge Community Sharing Garden: Are you a gardener? As spring arrives, the time to begin preparing our sharing garden for planting has arrived as well. If you

would like to work on the garden as a “family team” please contact Patty Champion patty.champion@comcast.net.
