Sunday: 9:00 AM Holy Eucharist Rite I
Wednesday: 7:00 AM Holy Eucharist Rite II
Pentecost is the day we recall the coming of the Holy Spirit to all of humanity as promised by Jesus Christ. "The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, God at work in the world and in the Church. The Holy Spirit leads us to the truth and enable us to grow into the likeness of Christ." (BCP page 852)
After Pentecost, we enter into the part of the Church year called Ordinary Time, but do not let the name mislead you there is nothing ordinary about it. Ordinary Time is called "ordinary" because the weeks are numbered or ordered. Ordinary comes from the Latin word ordinalis, which refers to numbers in a series, and stems from the Latin word ordo from which we get the English word order. Thus, Ordinary Time is in fact the ordered life of the Church—the period in which we live our lives neither in feasting (as in the Christmas and Easter seasons)nor in fasting (as in Advent and Lent). Rather, we live in watchfulness and expectation of the Second Coming of Christ. During this time we consider the awe and wonder of God reflected in the world and we hear scripture that tells us about Jesus earthly ministry. This is a time for us to consider and attempt to answer Jesus’ question to each of us “But who do you say that I am?” Answering this question will lead us into a deeper relationship with Christ and give us guidance on how we should live in the world. This is the time to feel the power of the Holy Spirit and use your gifts to make the Kingdom a little more real on earth.

NEW OPPORTUNITY – For the past few years All Saints has faithfully supported Winnie’s Place here in Moline, a group which supports battered women in various ways. Now, we also have the opportunity to support another battered women’s organization – Christian Care – which is located in Rock Island. Both of these organizations do a wonderful job of helping some of the most vulnerable residents in our communities. So, in addition to the items we already collect, we would like to add some other possibilities to your shopping list. Christian Care could use bus tickets (to help residents get around; you can buy these at Hy-Vee or Walmart), size 6 diapers, 33 gallon garbage bags, or paper towels. And, of course, gift cards from Hy-Vee or Walmart are always welcome. If you purchase any of these items please leave them with our other collected items in the lobby. Our normal collection Sunday is the first Sunday of the month. Thank you for being so generous.
THANK YOU! - The Outreach Committee would like to say thank you for so generously supporting all the many forms of community caring we are involved in here at All Saints.
Sunday School/Nursery – If you have a child or know of one who might like to attend, please contact the church office.
