This Sunday at All Saints’ Day: Sunday October 31
October 31st is an “Treat, No Tricks” Sunday at All Saints Church… as we add Halloween festivities to our Sunday celebration. We invite young and old to wear a costume in church – and after the 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. services, there will be Trick or Treat possibilities for all ages on the lawn of the quad and enjoy a Halloween story corner. At 10:15 a.m., our October Public Health Forum Series ends with a community discussion about what we have heard and learned together over the past month. What does public health mean to you? Ours? What can we learn from our experience of the pandemic? What does it mean for All Saints to be a healthy community and for us to live a holy and healthy life. Join us in person and online to discuss these things and more…. and also talk about the experience of the past three weeks and your thoughts on what you expect from the Forum going forward.
Join us in person on the Forum or online from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

Our guiding principle remains to follow common sense harm reduction guidelines as long as we remain in a declared public health pandemic, so to ensure the safety and well-being of our community, our in-person worship guidelines include :
- Masks are mandatory at all times – both indoors and outdoors – on the All Saints Campus.
- Outdoor and indoor seating is available for services and Communion will be served in both locations.
- Our expectation is that those who enter the church will be vaccinated (if vaccination is available to them) and we demand that masks be worn by all to protect the most vulnerable.
- People seated indoors are required to maintain social distance between individuals / households.
- If we reach the seating capacity in the church, the ushers will guide you to alternative seating areas.
- We ask that you do not enter if you experience any of the following symptoms: fever over 100.4 ° F or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, stuffy or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, or if you have been in contact in the past 14 days with someone diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19.
