All Saints at Street Fest?
Yep! ASLC is all about families and serving our community, and we know there are people who need to belong but aren’t connected. This is an easy way for community members to meet some of our wonderful members. And, to learn about our many community-based ministries… most of which go right back into Palatine.
So, come on over and say hello!
Come sing and ring your praise to the Lord! All of the choirs begin rehearsing again the second week of September, preparing beautiful music for our worship services here at All Saints. Please come and join us in making a joyful noise together with others who love to sing, ring, and play instruments. If you are not able to participate, please encourage someone else to do so. At the very least, please offer a prayer of thanks for all who offer their gifts of music to our congregation. Rehearsals are as follows:
Alleluia Choir Kindergarten to 5th Grade Wednesdays 4:15 – 5:00
Adult Bells High school youth and adults Thursdays 6:15 – 7:30
Adult Choir High school youth and adults Thursdays 7:30 – 9:00
Children of the congregation are especially invited and encouraged to sing in the Alleluia Choir. At each rehearsal we do a variety of musical activities: learning songs, hymns, and anthems to sing in worship, playing handchimes and others instruments, and having a great time making our own joyful noise.
Let Doug Williams, Director of Music, know of your interest in participating so that music can be prepared and a seat reserved for you!
All Saints participation in the summer-long ecumenical program to feed the hungry in the Northwest suburbs, continues Wednesday, September 13. The once-a-month Summer Suppers are an ideal opportunity for families with teens and tweens to volunteer together; Confirmation students can use Summer Suppers to accumulate service hours.
We will open our doors and serve a community meal on the second Wednesday of May, June, July, August and September—the months when the PADS shelters are closed. Holden Evening Prayer worship is at 7:30 p.m. on the same night as Summer Supper and members of the congregation are welcome to be part of the community and come for supper before worship. Supper is served starting at 6:30 p.m. and the doors close at 8 p.m. All are welcome!
Members can support the program by helping serve and clean up, cooking or buying food or making by a donation. Each night we need a dozen volunteers as well as food donors to cook and shop for the meals we serve. Volunteers each night work 2½ hour shifts starting at either 5:30 or 6 p.m. No training is required although youth volunteers must work with a parent. A sign-up book is on the narthex table. Send email to PADS@AllSaintsPalatine.org if you want more information.
Chapter One, All Saints’ book discussion group, begins another year with great conversation and fellowship Monday September 18, 7 pm, at Joan Fedota’s home. We will discuss “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles and vote on books to read in the coming year. Call or email Jane Oppermann ( email@example.com 847-277-7715) or Nancy Doyle, (firstname.lastname@example.org 219-309-7305) for more information.

Sing with the Cantata Choir – Rehearsals begin on Thursday, September 28, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 1, at 9:45 a.m. This year we will present Let the Whole World Sing, by Joel Raney. Christmas is celebrated across the globe by people as diverse as the cultures in which they live. The hope for peace on earth is shared by millions of people in every corner of the globe. This is the inspiration behind Let the Whole World Sing. Including Celtic, Caribbean, African and Middle Eastern motives, new music is blended with familiar carols in a wide variety of styles to create an interesting and fresh re-telling of the Christmas Story. Youth and adult singers are invited to join the choir. Come to either rehearsal or both each week to prepare to sing this year’s cantata.
