Foster Care Project School Shopping Spree

Neither screeching fire alarms (smoke in the Starbucks’ kitchen) nor drenching thunderstorms could dampen spirits on Saturday, July 18 when 28 children under the jurisdiction of the courts were accompanied by 40 volunteers to shop for back-to-school clothing at Target.

Summer Adventure Camp: Fit to Change the World

by Jennifer Cowie King

“It was the best strawberry I’ve EVER had!” my ten year old daughter exclaimed. Eyes shining, grabbing my hand and tucking her head into my neck, her enthusiastic and energetic response propelled us like wayward bowling pins into the church parking lot.

Staff Transitions: A Message from the Rector

Dear Friends,

One of the great blessings of being the rector of All Saints Church has been the opportunity to participate in the raising up of inspiring new religious leaders. Likewise, one of the great challenges of being the rector of All Saints Church continues to be the moment we are called to send them off into ministries elsewhere as beacons of God’s love, justice and compassion.

Foster Care Project

Mernie Migacz-Meier

I first learned about the Foster Care Project at a Christmas party in 2013 from a friend in our Covenant One class. Since then whether shopping for school clothes for foster children, giving birthday and Christmas gifts, packing sack lunches or flipping pancakes at a breakfast for homeless youth, coordinating volunteers and mentors at a group home — no matter what the project, program, or idea — I have been able to provide the perspective of a former foster youth.

God, My Parents & Me

Rebekah Garcia and Kristen Harman

“I was reluctantly willing to try it, I was not confident that the group really had anything to offer me. Plus, it would require actually leaving my house. With my twins. And possibly showering. At the time those were monumental challenges, indeed!

Holy Rakers

Janet Jack

I have been privileged over my lifetime to do a lot of traveling. I love exploring other sights but when it comes to my very favorite places that bring me comfort, joy, and  peace, there are two that top the list by far. Of course, one is my Burbank home and garden, the second is All Saints Church.

Lay Counseling

John Hyde

My Lay Counseling experience began at the Bel Air Presbyterian Church in 1973. I had moved from New York to Los Angeles just when there was a downturn in the economy. I left a good job in New York City and could not find comparable employment in LA. I was lonely and depressed when someone invited me to try counseling at their church. Unlike well meaning friends, my counselor Thea did not give advice — and the counselor/client relationship was strictly confidential.

Taizé

Mel Soriano

Taizé services have meant so much to many of us here at All Saints Pasadena. It amazes me that we get to worship together weekly instead of just periodically like at other places.

I first came across Taizé and found that the music was engaging and easy to learn. At first, I found the silent meditation in a group setting to be difficult (I get antsy) but I’ve learned to enjoy the community prayer.

Lay Visitation

Ken VanDerHorst

Over the past 10 years, as  a care giver at All Saints I have had the joy and honor of experiencing moments of the power of love; the power of God – that feeling of profound soulfulness.

And there are those moments when the time and place and circumstance come together in a perfect storm of soulfulness that stand out and have become a part of my DNA. As I listen to my heart they are the moments that spark my passion for this work. I know the same is true for each and every one of my colleagues in the All Saints Lay Visitation Ministry.
