Happenings at All Saints'

Deacon Bob's Perspective

2017 marks my first full year as a Deacon and what a year!

Developing relationships with our charities, the Outreach Committee (consisting of Fr. Reid, Rev. Kathy Hulin, Jeff Cox Jr., Bob Scarr, Ed Headington, David Fernandez and myself) developed a focus for our outreach efforts. By doing this we would be able to engage the parish. The results of this focus were phenomenal. The Gang Task Force outings went from 3 in attendance on the first one to almost one hundred on the third outing. The Talbot house dinner produced the same result. The VISTE Thanksgiving dinner delivery and other events where All Saints’ engaged to reach out to those in need showed the love of Christ to our community*.

Eggstravaganza – Saturday, March 31st

We had a wonderful morning together with parents, grandparents, children, teens, and friends of All Saints’ for our annual Easter Eggstravaganza in Barnett Park. Festivities began shortly after 10:00 a.m. when we gathered for a photo before the egg hunt took place. Children of all ages enjoyed their hunting! Thanks to some of our teens, Stephanie Paul, Carrie Kotal, and Roger van Duyn, we had a photo booth with the Easter bunny, balloon figures, face painting, Easter nails, cookie decorating, water coloring, and a craft. The children also enjoyed playing together on the playground equipment.

Thank you to all you helped and for the many egg and candy donations. Our children were blessed!

The Heritage Center

We are so thankful for the many gifts and passions of our members. Chris Brown and her husband John Lind have been sharing their gifts with the church for over 7 years in a quiet, but important way. Have you ventured into the Heritage Center, lately? 

There are over 44 books filled with “Memories” in terms of letters, photos, or other items related to All Saints’ history. Chris is the creative talent behind those books and John is her support staff. The book pictured is the first book assembled by Chris for the Heritage Center.

Friday Men's Bible Study

According to the men who attend each week, the Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study at All Saints’ is much more than religious instruction. It’s spiritual commitment. It’s fellowship and camaraderie. And it’s life changing. 

“It challenges men to be better husbands, fathers, brothers, managers, co-workers and citizens,” says Steve Shelnut, one of the groups earliest members.  “Father Reid cites passages of scripture that might make us squirm, but it reminds us of our calling and systematically uncovers the traits of authentic Christian manhood that we all need to hear again and again.”

Soul in the City Recap

What a great event! We had around 100 people show up over the course of the morning and we touched a lot of lives. Deacon Bob will be getting us an article very soon here to go into more detail of the day, but in the meantime, here are some upcoming dates. Our next communtiy involvement will be held on March 17, 2018 followed up in the fall of next year on September 29, 2018. Both of these events will be hosted by the Dream Center. We will provide you with more details as we get them, but save these dates! 

Getting to Know Chef Bruce

Two words define the journey of Chef Bruce Tuttle from the kitchens of downtown Lakeland restaurants to the kitchen of All Saints’ church: Divine Intervention. 

“That’s exactly how I’d define it,” says Bruce, who joined the church staff as Director of Food Services in April. “I had no idea that I would find my home here at All Saints’. But as soon as I came to this church, I had a sense that this was meant to be.”

If you see me approaching with a notebook and pen in hand...

Dear All Saints’ Family, 

Last Sunday, Aug. 20, was a big day for me as I officially became a member of All Saints.’ My husband, Tim, and I have been attending since January and immediately felt warmly welcomed.  As I got to know the church I became more and more involved: attending Father Reid’s Monday-night “From the Rector’s Perspective” class, participating in the Spring Parish Academy session, joining the Book Club, attending a Ladies’ Night outing to Orlando to hear Beth Moore’s inspiring message to more than 5,000 people, and more.  A special highlight for me was attending the installation service for Father Reid.

Dear All Saints’ Family,

Greetings and love from Dayton! After spending the past 16 years of my life in central Florida, I have picked up and moved to southwestern Ohio.
