Welcoming You with the Spirit of Aloha!

"You go out to my people as God's messengers...Our beloved Church regards her children as having bodies as well as souls to be cared for, and sanctions the consecration of these and of all that is beautiful in nature and in art to the service of God" 

-- Queen Emma

Join Us for Our

Craft Faire Thank You!
Mahalo to everyone that participated and made the 21st Annual Holiday Craft Faire a success. Any successful event takes many hands. Our many hands include the team that put up the tent, the chili/hot dog/rice team that fed our vendors, and the kitchen team that not only prepared food but were there making the plate lunches on Saturday. Accolades are still coming in from people that enjoyed the fabulous ono Lau Lau for the first time. Thank you to all that assisted picking up and returning the All Saints’ tables, as well as everyone that set tables up and took them down. There was an incredible outpouring of baked goods donated. There were many that helped in the background prior to the event as well. Many have said that the “vibe” during this event is so positive. Paula Schultz finds this event so fun that she has offered to assist/create a committee for the 2019 event! If anyone else is interested, please let Wendi or Paula know.  
Starry, Starry Night Gala!
Come and support The Bridge for an evening of BBQ, music, dancing and fun, on Saturday, November 17, at Koloa Landing. Doors open at 5pm with an evening that includes silent and live auctions, and a short program of what was accomplished this year. Bring your dancing boots and… BE THE BRIDGE...That Makes a Difference for Kaua'i Kids.

Thanksgiving Eve
We will celebrate Holy Eucharist on Wednesday evening, November 21, at 6pm. This is a perfect time to gather with family and friends and give thanks for all the many blessings we have been given in this life. We hope you will start your holiday by joining us in worship!
Advent Adult Formation Program
As is our custom, we will have an evening adult formation program during Advent. We will gather on Tuesday evenings – November 27, December 4, 11 and 18 – in our sanctuary at 6pm for worship. We will then move on to our Parish Hall to share a potluck meal and fellowship. Our program this year will be a conversation about the themes and meaning of John Grisham’s novel, Skipping Christmas. This is not a lengthy work, and it is an easy read! We will soon have copies of the book available for sale, but it is readily available, in print or electronic versions, on a variety of sites should anyone wish to purchase their own.  

A sign-up sheet to provide a main dish, salad or dessert for each of the Tuesdays is available in the Parish Hall. Advent is a time of holy waiting and preparation; it calls us to set aside time to be reflective about the coming of the Nativity and the presence of Christ in the world. This is a great opportunity to do so, and we hope you will join us!
Jazz Fest Preparations Begin!
Jazz Fest will be here before we know it: February 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2019! It is already time to begin our preparations for this huge parish event.
