Are You Looking for a Preschool?
Look no further!  All Saints’ hosts a NATO-friendly, half day preschool September through May and has since 1969!  Our European, play-based model program is developmentally appropriate for preschool aged children from 2 through kindergarten age.  Our five-day Kindergarten Prep program is not only a perfect preparation for Kindergarten, it can also serve as a terrific setting for your age-eligible kindergartener who might not be socially or academically ready for public school Kindergarten just yet.  Some children need that extra year! This year we’re adding a Kindergarten Enrichment Program.  John B. Dey Kindergarteners come to us in the morning, participate in an enriched kindergarten experience, eat their lunch from home, and board the bus to afternoon kindergarten regardless of the session for which their household is zoned. Two and three-year olds can opt for 2, 3 or five days a week in accordance with your preference and your child’s needs.  Check us out on facebook (All Saints’ Day School), or visit our website at www.allsaintsdayschoolvb.com.Youcan also stop by the bulletin board near the red water fountain to read a newsletter, meet the staff, or browse through our activities.
Want a tour and more details? Contact our Director, Dianne Islev-Petersen at 481-0577 (ext.2) or E-mail her at allsaintsdayschool@gmail.com.

SUMMER AND FALL COFFEE HOUR HOSTS NEEDED
Gathering after the 10:00 service for a bit of noshing and conversation is who we are. It is at coffee hour that we connect socially as a parish family. It's not much fun when the event is limited to coffee, tea and lemonade, so please consider signing up to host a summer coffee hour. Some folks go all out, but all we need is a couple of boxes of donut holes to make it a party. The sign-up is in Baines Hall to the right of the entrance that is closest to the Narthex.
All Saints' Episcopal Church 50th Anniversary (1967-2017)
If you've collected your copy of the pictorial directory and read the history of our parish, it may have registered that All Saints' is coming up on a very important anniversary.
January 8, 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of our birth.
The Parish Life Commission, in consultation with the Vestry, is busily planning a year of celebrations in honor of this significant milestone. We will begin the festivities with a very special service on Sunday January 8th and continue with a different celebration each quarter of the calendar year. A great deal of brainstorming has been accomplished, but only the January 8th piece has begun to take form. Please be alert to ways in which you can help as each quarter's event is defined and planned. We will need the time, talent, and energy of our parish family as we undertake a year of honoring fifty years of knowing Christ and Making Christ known.
In an effort to help you keep up with your pledge commitments and giving history, beginning in July, Quarterly Contribution Statements will be emailed to parishiners.
If you have not sent your email address to Mary or if you have changed address, please send your current email address to Mary (address below).
Mrs. Mary E. West

Annual Beach Eucharist is September 11th 
We look forward to seeing you at our Annual Beach Eucharist scheduled for Sunday, September 11th at 10:00 a.m.   This annual event is held at the Cape Henry Gazebo.  Admission and parking costs are assumed by the church.  Dress casually, and bring your beach gear as well as an item to share at the pot luck lunch that follows.  The Parish Life Commission will provide the paper products and beverages.  There will be no 10:00 a.m. service at the church that Sunday. The venue is barrier-free, so strollers and wheelchairs are welcome.
Lay Ministry Sunday is September 18th
  Lay Ministry Sunday is the third Sunday in September.  Our Annual Lay Ministry Fair is an opportunity to share what it is that makes us All Saints’.  Commissions and groups are represented by displays, and representative individuals shed light on what they do and how you, too, can do it. Please register on the sign-up sheet in the narthex if you would like table space in order to share the work of your group or commission with the parish at large. The Fair will take place in Baines Hall following each of our services on September 18th.  This is a wonderful way to learn about the work and activities in our parish, as well as, associate a face with a function.  Come and share in the fun!
Baines Hall Adult Forum

The Baines Hall Adult Forum will re-convene officially on Sunday, September 25th following the 10:00 a.m. service.  The Forum Team has met regularly since last May to develop a series of offerings designed to continue exploring our ongoing theme: Scripture, Tradition, Spirituality, and Culture.  Through a rich variety of experiences featuring presenters and facilitators from both within and outside our congregation, we hope to nudge you into discovering who you are as you remember whose you are and formulate personal ways through which you can live into both realities in the world we share. Look for a refreshed posting of offerings in Baines Hall, visit our table at the Lay Ministry Fair, and check the easel in the narthex each week for the title of the next Baines Hall Adult Forum offering.

Recycling Old Batteries
As part of its process in becoming a Pearl School through Lynnhaven River NOW, the Day School is collecting dead batteries. Any battery will do; even those that do not fit in our container on the stand outside the Day School Office. Used batteries MAY NOT be disposed of through your garbage can or re-cycling bin as they need special handling. There are drop-off centers located within our city, but wouldn't it be easier to simply drop them off here at All Saints'? The Day School thanks you for supporting its efforts!
