Community VBS Needs YOU

http://www.allsaintswoodbridge.org/uploads/cvbs_house_logo.jpgPlease consider praying about whether to open your doors, your back yard, your porch, or even your driveway to host a Community VBS in your neighborhood. When you commit to two hours a day for five days (June 25-29), we will provide the teacher, an assistant, and all props, supplies, decorations and refreshments to proclaim GAME ON! in your community. If God is nudging you to host CVBS at your home but you would like to learn more about it before our May 1st sign-up deadline, come to one of our two information sessions at All Saints' Church for prospective host homes (childcare is provided). The sessions will be held April 19 and April 25. Both one-hour sessions start at 7:30 p.m. For more information on this and other ways to volunteer, visit www.communityvbs.org

Youth Yard Sale Time -- Seeking Donations
We hope you've set aside those no-longer needed, but good-quality treasures, appliances, and furniture amassed during Spring Cleaning, because it's time to give them a second life. Bless someone else with your treasures by donating them to the Youth Yard Sale, which will be held May 12 in the church Atrium. All proceeds from the sale are applied toward financing the Youth Summer Mission Trip to Aliquippa, PA. Bring your donations to the church beginning May 9--please, no adult clothing. If you require assistance with large furniture, contact Mario to arrange pick-up. 

Men of All Saints', Get Your Hike On!

The Men of All Saints' will gather to ponder God's creation as they hike along the Potomac River, April 28 at Leesylvania State Park. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., they will hike between 2 and 2-
1/2 miles, stopping midway to discuss the verse above and give the little ones a rest (children 5 and older are welcome, as are pets). Free parking is available in the May’s community culdesac. Expect to wrap up around noon. For more information, contact Bobby Demott.

Women's Thursday Bible Study: The Epistle of Jude
Join the Thursday morning Women's Bible for an in-depth study on the New Testament Book of Jude. Written by the half-brother of Jesus Christ, Jude is one of the shortest books in the Bible. Why is this study so important for today's Christian? For one, it helps us to identify and combat the false teachings and prophecies that are so prevalent today. Secondly, the study teaches us the meaning of contending for our faith and gives us handles on how to do it. Finally, Jude will provide us with encouragement and help as we live and interact with a culture that is hostile to our Christian faith. This is a five-week study beginning April 26 and ending May 24. The class meets on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon in the Administrative Conference Room. For more information contact Connie Odems at (703) 583-0391. To register, click here

Nursery and child care for children third grade and younger will be made available upon request by Wednesday, April 18.  Please register for the workshop at 
http://www.allsaintswoodbridge.org/pgc.
 


Tuesday Morning Women's Bible Study
This Lent we are studying the Ten Commandments based on a Lenten sermon series Bishop John Guernsey preached at All Saints’. These teachings explain that the purpose of God’s law is not to make us perfect but to show us how much we need Jesus.  We’ll examine how the Ten Commandments point us to Jesus and guide us after we become His followers. No fee for this study—your Bible is the only textbook you’ll need.  Please join us in the ASC multipurpose room 10 a.m.—noon each Tuesday, March 6-27. Free childcare is available in the church nursery. Contact Chloellen@comcast.net for more info or to reserve a place for your child in the nursery.  

Newcomer Class
Beginning May 6, All Saints' Church will hold a Newcomer Series of Classes. If you are a newcomer (been here less than 2 years), or you just want to know more about All Saints' Church (perhaps you never made it to the newcomer class before), you will benefit from this series. Perhaps you took the series before but missed a particular week--just sign up for an individual week. Plan on fun, informative classes as we learn more about the church and its many ministries. The Newcomer Class consists of four, one-hour sessions delivered Sunday mornings during the Discipleship Hour (9:45-10:45), and culminating with a dinner at the home of Father Dan and Kristin Morgan. The series will cover: (Week One) Our History; (Week Two) Prayer and Worship; (Week Three) Spiritual Gifts; and (Week Four) Anglicanism. For more information, contact Naomi Iber at (703-670-0093) ext. 106 or niber@allsaintswoodbridge.org.
