When Rebecca Borneman was a young woman, her mother took her to visit the Church of the Resurrection in New York City. As they walked through the small but significant parish, Rebecca remembers seeing the small closed seat at the end of each pew. These small wooden seats – unassuming yet in a place of honor - were the designated seats for the original Daughters of the King.
Not in the least, it was one of the most emotional for me.
Each year close to graduation we have a Youth Sunday where graduating seniors give a speech about how this church has impacted their life and shaped their future. We have a service where our amazing youth take the lead on being stewards, lectors, and singers, plus the special addition of participating during the homily.
The March Compassion Day in the North Lake Wire neighborhood was a tremendous success. Record numbers of participants and activities filled the day. There were several projects that rolled into follow up days but gave us the opportunity with follow up visits with the neighbors.
We had such a wonderful morning Easter Sunday. Parents, grandparents, children, teens and friends of All Saints’ joined us for our annual Easter Eggstravaganza in Barnett Park. Festivities began shortly after 10 a.m. with an opening prayer before the actual egg hunt started. Children of all ages enjoyed their hunting! Thanks to the efforts of some of our awesome teens and other generous volunteers, we had children getting photos with the Easter bunny, balloon art, face painting, Easter nail art, cookie decorating and crafts. The children also enjoyed playing together on Barnett Park's playground equipment.

It was a beautiful day for our annual Palm Sunday Procession this year! Children, teens, parents, and adults of all ages enjoyed being together around the lake at Lake Mirror, across the street from our church. We began at a meeting point across the way and our adult choir with guest trumpeter helped to launch our liturgy which included a sung setting of Hosanna, prayers, and a scripture reading from the Gospel of Matthew. We enjoy receiving a red balloon because of the festive nature of the celebration and most everyone wore red because it is the liturgical color for Palm Sunday.
