Happenings at All Saints'

Women's Book Study

What do you do when life’s many stressors get the best of you? That’s what the women who attended a Thursday-night women’s book study this fall learned as they read and discussed Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by best-selling Christian author Lysa Terkeurst. 

The study was led by Kathy Hulin, All Saints’ Director of Family Ministries, and helped attendees learn how to make wise choices in situations that become out of control by:

  •  improving communication;
  • managing tendencies to “stuff” or “explode” your emotions;
  • and most importantly, turning our focus to Jesus.

Aside from the readings each week, the group discussions were an important part of the study. “Everyone opened up, and I think that’s very special,” says attendee Linda Frick.

Amy Taylor, another class participant, adds: “Kathy Hulin’s book study was wonderful! I encourage this book to any woman wanting to grow in Christ wherever you are in your daily walk.” Amy says she was especially inspired by a quote by Goethe that Kathy shared at the beginning of the class. Kathy said it was a favorite of her father-in-law:   

If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.

Despite the rather serious topic, both the book and the class were also light-hearted. “I really got the humor out of it,” says Cathy James. “Lysa made us laugh. She made me feel joyous.” And feeling joyous is what makes these studies so meaningful.

“We’re a group of women getting together,” adds Gloria Gangwer, “and that’s always special.”

A new women’s book study will be offered beginning in January. The next book to be read is The Grand Weaver: How God Shapes Us Through the Events of Our Lives by Ravi Zacharias. Classes will be held on eight consecutive Thursdays in the late afternoon starting Jan. 11 and continuing through March 1. Contact Kathy Hulin for details if you are interested in attending. We hope to see you there! 

 

Thank You for Giving

'Tis the season for giving thanks and for thinking about giving Christmas gifts for children. Our families, children, and youth have participated in creating Christmas shoeboxes for Samaritan's Purse in years' past, and this year the effort was supported by many more families and individuals in our parish. Through the combined effort by our members, as well as the support of our Outreach Team, we were able to contribute 57 filled shoeboxes to the annual campaign!

Friday Men's Bible Study

According to the men who attend each week, the Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study at All Saints’ is much more than religious instruction. It’s spiritual commitment. It’s fellowship and camaraderie. And it’s life changing. 

“It challenges men to be better husbands, fathers, brothers, managers, co-workers and citizens,” says Steve Shelnut, one of the groups earliest members.  “Father Reid cites passages of scripture that might make us squirm, but it reminds us of our calling and systematically uncovers the traits of authentic Christian manhood that we all need to hear again and again.”

Getting to Know Chef Bruce

Two words define the journey of Chef Bruce Tuttle from the kitchens of downtown Lakeland restaurants to the kitchen of All Saints’ church: Divine Intervention. 

“That’s exactly how I’d define it,” says Bruce, who joined the church staff as Director of Food Services in April. “I had no idea that I would find my home here at All Saints’. But as soon as I came to this church, I had a sense that this was meant to be.”

Thursdays Are Ladies' Night

There are three different types of offerings for the women of our church this fall on Thursday evenings. We have fellowship opportunities, a Bible study option, and a women's book study group.

If you enjoy food and fellowship, we had a very successful Publix Aprons outing in August and another one will take place on October 5th from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Lake Miriam Publix. We also will have a baking night with Chef Bruce on November 30th to have fun during the festive time of year while preparing food for our annual Lessons & Carols reception.
