Join us for Lemonade on the Lawn

They aren’t called the Lazy Days of Summer for nothing.
 
http://www.allsaintswoodbridge.org/uploads/lemonade-spotlight.jpgLet’s slow the pace down this summer by turning Discipleship Hour into Fellowship hour. On Sundays between services, we invite you to relax, sip s
ome lemonade, nosh on fruit or pastry, and rediscover the joy of pleasant conversation. This is an excellent way to make new friends and reconnect with others we might not  have seen in a while.

Each week, a different ministry, small group, or perhaps even a group of friends, will prepare the table, outside (whenever the weather permits) or in the Atrium. If you, your small group, or your circle of friends would like to host an LoL table, please email us at office@allsaintswoodbridge.org.

So, ideally, if you're typically an "8:15-er," plan to stay for 15-20 minutes after the service ends, and if you're an "11-er," plan to arrive for service 15-20 minutes early. Please wear your nametags this summer to help us put names and faces together as we become better acquainted. If you haven’t received a nametag, stop at the Newcomer kiosk in the atrium and sign up to have one made.

Upcoming Events

CVBS Spirit Events
This year we  have two CVBS Spirit events. You can help support CVBS while enjoying a meal at one of two (or both!) dining opportunities. The first is June 12 at the All American Steak House, in Merchant Plaza, Lake Ridge, (NOT the place we’ve been going to on Route 234 in years past). The steak house will donate to CVBS ten percent of their proceeds for the entire day to anyone who presents this flier (click, download, and print).

The second event will be held June 19 at Nando's Peri-Peri Chicken in Stonebridge between the hours of 4 and 9 p.m. Nando's will donate 40% of proceeds during those five hours for meals served to patrons who identify as being there to support CVBS. While a flier is not required, bringing one to remember to notify the wait staff is a good idea. Find one here.

Men's Bike Ride
Think of it as a low-impact, lifestyle reboot, taking care of the "body" part of Mind-Body-Spirit." The Men's Ministry is holding a 10-mile bike ride through Prince William Forest Park, Saturday June 16, starting at 9:30 a.m. We'll meet in Forest Park High School parking lot. Interested riders can find more details and sign up at the Men's ministry kiosk or send an email to mensministry@allsaintswoodbridge.org

 
Prayer for the Persecuted Church

If you are distressed by the news around the world and want to do something to help, please consider this prayer opportunity. We meet the second Tuesday of every month. The next meeting is Tuesday, June 12  at 7:30 p.m. in the All Saints’ Prayer Center.


Ladies' Worship and Prayer
The twice-monthly women's gathering for worship, prayer and fellowship at the home of Kelly Mine meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, from 7-9 p.m., at 14713 Parson Weems Loop, Woodbridge. Hope to see you there!  


Connecting Women
The Women’s Council will be holding a monthly casual get together for the women of All Saints'. "Connecting Women" will meet every third Saturday of the month upstairs in Wegman's from 1-2 p.m. (the next meeting is June 16). This is a casual social event. Just grab a coffee and connect and get your weekly shopping done at the same time.



GROW

 

Protecting God's Children Workshop
Protecting God's Children, a required workshop for all those age 14 and older who will be serving in Community VBS, will be offered Wednesday, June 13 at Grace Baptist Church, from 7-9:30 p.m. Please register for the workshop at www.allsaintswoodbridge.org/pgc.

Tuesday Morning Women's Bible Study
You’re invited to participate in an exciting new Bible Study, Twelve More Women of the Bible, June 5 through August 28. Join us as gifted authors share spiritual lessons learned from Old and New Testament women who are equally relevant in 2018. Like all women, they experienced successes, failures, disappointments, rejections, and many times of trial. Come, be inspired and encouraged, as you learn how they persevered and experienced God’s presence, joy, and strength in every situation. We meet each Tuesday in the multipurpose room at All Saints from 10 a.m.—noon. All women are welcome, and we’ve saved a place for you. The cost for this DVD based series and workbook is $8.50. Contact MargMann@comcast.net for more information or to order a workbook. Contact Melissa, mbyers@iachurch.org, for childcare during Bible study.  
    

 




SERVE

Looking to "Plug in"? Extra Hands are Always Appreciated
Please consider giving an hour or so of your time weekly or monthly to All Saints' Church by serving in one of the many volunteer opportunities. There's a spot for you wherever you would feel most comfortable serving--in the kitchen, in the nursery, in the office, helping to set up the altar, helping during the service as a reader, usher, chalice bearer or working in the audio-visual booth. If you are being called to serve, please contact the office at 703-670-0093 or via email to office@allsaintswoodbridge.org. Training will be provided if needed on an individual basis.

All Saints' Church is Sending CVBS Down Under!
After much prayer and logistical conversation, final touches have been put in place for the Iber Family to take CVBS to Karen Refugee families in Australia!
The group of Karens that we are bringing CVBS to fled the Thai-Burma border and have resettled in Australia. Most spent decades locked up in refugee camps until the Thai government allowed them to leave. Most of the Karen we will be working with have been in Australia more than 10 years and are now Australian citizens. Youth active in the community range in age from about 8 years old to about 14. They are attending school in Australia so they have a reasonable command of English, however, they do try to hold on to their language and culture. They like to sing in the Karen language.

Please add this mission to your prayers for CVBS and All Saints'. We will update you with specific dates and other information soon.

Thank you!
