From whatever tradition you come,
or from none,
All Saints' welcomes you!
All Saints' Interior
All Saint's Episcopal Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Worship has been offered to God at
All Saints' for over 30 years. 
We invite you to join us and share in this living tradition.
Winter Watch
Winter Watch 2016
Winter Watch is a program that feeds an evening meal and provides overnight lodging to the homeless in churches during the winter.  Under the leadership of Maria Dantone, All Saints’ assists Bayside Presbyterian Church on North Independence with their hosting responsibilities.  This year we will gather at Bayside Presbyterian about 7:00 PM on Monday, November 21st to prepare a hearty meal and serve it.  We will also need to prepare/provide a light, self-serve breakfast for the following morning and bag lunches for the day that follows. Neither of these meals entails a serving responsibility and those served depart the church early in the morning. Watch for a sign-up in the narthex, so you can be a part of this wonderful evening.
Hurricane Matthew Relief in Virginia Beach
Many thanks to all who used our pew envelopes to contribute to Hurricane Relief for those devastated by Matthew’s visit.  There is a neighborhood, The Pines, off of Lynnhaven Parkway that needed to be evacuated.  Everything was lost to these families who didn’t have much to begin with.  All Saints’ collecting gently used children’s clothing of all sizes for the 117 Virginia Beach City Public School students who have been displaced by this disaster.  The school social workers will distribute the clothing.  The Outreach Commission has already sent $500 in gift cards to this local relief effort.  Please bring your donations to the narthex during November.

Umteenth Annual Adult Group Yankee Swap
Annual Adult Group Yankee Swap
Adults in the church, please join us in Baines Hall on Friday evening, December 9th   beginning at 7:00 PM for an evening of good food and joyful camaraderie!  This long-held All Saints’ tradition must be experienced to be believed.  We ask that you sign up in the narthex, that each attendee bring a wrapped gift valued at less than $10.00, and contribute $5.00 to cover the cost of beverages We also request a fully prepared and plated finger food (savory or sweet) to share.  In return you will take home an unwrapped gift valued at less than $10.00 and experience, in a unique way, the joy of giving.  Those who have attended in recent years will agree that a completely transformed Baines Hall with plenty of space and seating for all, makes the evening.
The “Giving Tree” is another All Saints’ tradition.  It will go up in the Narthex the Monday following Thanksgiving.  On it you will find ornaments reflecting the needs of individual vetted for us by The Virginia Beach Department of Social Services, ACCESS, Foster Children, Seton House, Cox HS, Great Neck Middle School, and John B. Dey Elementary School, and Ft. Story.  We will also have a few tags for All Saints’ Day School as many of their toys are in desperate need of replacing. Take all of the ornaments you want, make your purchases, wrap your gifts, and affix your ornament to the outside of the gift.  We REALLY need for the ornament to come back with the gift because its shape and color enables us to sort them by recipient. All gifts are due no later than Sunday, December 18th @ 11:00 AM

COFFEE HOUR HOSTS NEEDED
Gathering after the 10:00 service for a bit of noshing and conversation is who we are. It is at coffee hour that we connect socially as a parish family. It's not much fun when the event is limited to coffee, tea and lemonade, so please consider signing up to host a summer coffee hour. Some folks go all out, but all we need is a couple of boxes of donut holes to make it a party. The sign-up is in Baines Hall to the right of the entrance that is closest to the Narthex.
All Saints' Episcopal Church 50th Anniversary (1967-2017)
If you've collected your copy of the pictorial directory and read the history of our parish, it may have registered that All Saints' is coming up on a very important anniversary.
January 8, 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of our birth.
The Parish Life Commission, in consultation with the Vestry, is busily planning a year of celebrations in honor of this significant milestone. We will begin the festivities with a very special service on Sunday January 8th and continue with a different celebration each quarter of the calendar year. A great deal of brainstorming has been accomplished, but only the January 8th piece has begun to take form. Please be alert to ways in which you can help as each quarter's event is defined and planned. We will need the time, talent, and energy of our parish family as we undertake a year of honoring fifty years of knowing Christ and Making Christ known.
In an effort to help you keep up with your pledge commitments and giving history, beginning in July, Quarterly Contribution Statements will be emailed to parishiners.
If you have not sent your email address to Mary or if you have changed address, please send your current email address to Mary (address below).
Are You Looking for a Preschool?
Look no further!  All Saints’ hosts a NATO-friendly, half day preschool September through May and has since 1969! Our European, play-based model program is developmentally appropriate for preschool aged children from 2 through kindergarten age. Our five-day Kindergarten Prep program is not only a perfect preparation for Kindergarten, it can also serve as a terrific setting for your age-eligible kindergartener who might not be socially or academically ready for public school Kindergarten just yet. Some children need that extra year! This year we’re adding a Kindergarten Enrichment Program. John B. Dey Kindergarteners come to us in the morning, participate in an enriched kindergarten experience, eat their lunch from home, and board the bus to afternoon kindergarten regardless of the session for which their household is zoned.Two and three-year olds can opt for 2, 3 or five days a week in accordance with your preference and your child’s needs.

Recycling Old Batteries
As part of its process in becoming a Pearl School through Lynnhaven River NOW, the Day School is collecting dead batteries. Any battery will do; even those that do not fit in our container on the stand outside the Day School Office. Used batteries MAY NOT be disposed of through your garbage can or re-cycling bin as they need special handling. There are drop-off centers located within our city, but wouldn't it be easier to simply drop them off here at All Saints'? The Day School thanks you for supporting its efforts!

Please remember to let the church office know when your bundle of joy arrives.  As a parish, we would like to share your delight and commemorate the gift of new life by placing a rose bud on the font in honor of your newest family member.  Mary, or her answering machine, will take your information any time of the day or night at 481-0577.  So add us to the list of “must calls” tucked away in your hospital bag or adoption folder.
