A Cool Job for the Art and Craft Weekend.  WE NEED YOU to be the face of All Souls for the hundreds of visitors we will welcome into our church Saturday and Sunday. Having members here to say"Welcome to All Souls” is a huge ministry. I have a brief cheat-sheet if you want to share a little history or send folks over to a docent if they are hungry to know even more. So if you want a cool job and a place to sit down when you need it, please consider helping out as much or as little as you can. Pair up with a friend or consider a parent/child team. Call Martha Fullington to sign up: 684-2083. Thank you.

Autumn Grace —Composing Ourselves: (in a wild and worried world) At this senior stage of our lives how do we compose ourselves? Facilitated by Karen Lee Turner, Autumn Grace will explore creative and practical ways to “calm” our lives. Come join us as we discover together spiritual practices that we can learn from the worlds of arts and creative expression as well as our own experience. August 16 – 9:30 am—Breakfast Social – Parish Hall (Zabriskie) 10:00am—Morning Prayer 10:15-11:30—“Composing Ourselves” Program Questions? Babie Chromy (687-2926) jstrobel5@charter.net

Foyer Groups 2014. Fall Foyer Groups Now forming. Want to get to know more of your fellow parishioners in a relaxed atmosphere? Join a “Foyer Group.” A Foyer Group consists of six-eight adults and children. The groups will meet three or more times between March and June to share a meal and fellowship. They may meet in homes, restaurants, or any location. Sign up forms are available in the back of the church, or contact Shonda Asaad at 684-2682 or smasaad@hotmail.com for more information. Deadline to register is Aug. 17.

Room In The Inn will return to All Souls the week of August 10-17. This program for homeless women has a long, successful history with the cathedral and provides a wonderful opportunity to assist up to a dozen women that week. We offer a safe lodging in Zabriskie Hall along with a home cooked meal each evening. Volunteers are needed to cook and serve seven dinners, provide a dozen bag lunches each day, be an “Innkeeper” at night, or provide other caring touches for our visitors. Look for the sign up sheet in front of the church soon, or contact the Bryants at 628-4564 or the Stevensons at 254-5227 for more information.

 

The Cathedral of All Souls will co-sponsor a Bone Marrow Registry event  Sunday, August 24th at the Parish hall beginning at 12:45 PM. To join the national bone registry, you should be between the ages of 18-44. Younger donors provide the greatest chance for transplant success. The coordinator will take a cheek swab and send it in the national site for registration. If a match is found, you agree to make yourself available to provide bone marrow, usually through a blood donation. Financial donations will be accepted to help defray costs. If you have questions you can go to bethematch.org to learn more about the process.

 

Greeters: Has there ever been a time in your life when you were “trying on churches” in a community new to you and to your family? Do you remember how you felt when no one acknowledged you as you approached the door or after the service in the sanctuary? You probably didn’t return unless the music was outstanding or the sermon spoke to you in some profound way. At All Souls we are without doubt blessed with beautiful music  and a sermon every Sunday that makes all newcomers and current parishioners sit up and take notice. But the clergy and vestry at All Souls strive for much more. This fellowship is offered by the Greeters to encourage visitors and parishioners to feel part of the All Souls community. Greeters are scheduled at a frequency of once every other month and are needed for all services. A Greeter training will be held in the month of October (date to be announced). For further information, please call Tamara and Jason Chambers @ (828)400-1291. Thank you.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! The Early Reading Connection Outreach Mission is seeking more volunteers who would enjoy spending one hour every other week during the school year assisting Kindergarten children in developing their early reading skills.  The Cathedral of All Souls has provided volunteers at  W. Estes Elementary School for the past 18 years, but the need for more “reading helpers” continues to increase each school year as more children enter Kindergarten not knowing basic pre-reading skills (such as the alphabet). If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information about our mission, please contact Fred Selph, Coordinator, at 828-664-0712

Church of the Advocate: Our men’s most urgent need is for sneakers and sandals (we’re out), white socks, underwear, shorts, jeans and pants especially in smaller sizes, T-shirts, belts, and caps. Our women need bags (pocketbooks to shoulder bags), totes, casual dresses, underwear, also sneakers, sandals and flip-flops. We can’t seem to get in any backpacks or sleeping bags, which are sorely needed. But be assured that for all your donations our homeless congregation is grateful.

 

The flowers are to the glory of God and in loving memory of Carroll Dean Ensley.
