Potluck Fellowship Dinner—Fix a national health crisis! Help us come together and build relationships - social connection is lifesaving medicine, and that's the business we're in. You are invited to a Potluck Fellowship Dinner on July 17, 6:30-8:30 pm in the Parish Hall. Bring a dish to share and we will enjoy each other’s company, listen to God’s voice in our heart’s longings, and imagine a life of gathering together that brings us connection, love, and health.

A chance to be part of our garden—As the weather warms, it's a great time to add to our memorial bricks. Have a brick engraved for $100 or $200 (depending on size). Pick up a form in the Gathering spaces or in the church office, and help support our Buildings and Grounds Team while making an attractive addition to our garden. Questions? See the July newsletter, or call Susie Beard, our brick coordinator, at 301-273-4807.

All Saints' Book Sale—Please bring last minute donations by Friday, July 19th. St. Mary’s Chapter thanks everyone who has contributed thus far. Remember to check out the list of sets and collectibles and view the preliminary set up at www.allsaintsmd.org/booksale.

EfM—EfM will be starting again this fall. EfM is a four-year study of scripture, church history, and theology, as well as a place to consider issues and events that influence our lives. For information or to register contact Elizabeth Koerner at elizabethkoerner@gmail.com or 757-508-4411.

Save a Life! New AED Machine—We've recently expanded our AED services by updating and installing new AED equipment in our building. You can now find AEDs in the Upper Gathering Space, Lower Gathering Space, and outside the Historic Church sacristy. Not sure how to use an AED? They're for people who have gone unconscious, and can give their heart a jump-start. The machine will talk you through the steps, should you ever need to use it on someone. We'll also hold safety trainings in the fall - keep your eyes peeled for more!
