Coming Up

The Monday Afternoon Study Group meets

Mondays from 2:00-3:30 p.m. in Tate Hall
Facilitated by The Rev’d Karen Evans

Beginning February 2nd will be a eight week exploration of the Acts of the Apostles. The story of the spread of Christianity is the story of those who took the Gospel from the upper room in Jerusalem to the whole Roman Empire. Their acts give us an introduction to what it means to be an apostle. Join us for lively discussion and new perspective on Acts and apostleship.

Junior & Primary Choirs Presents
David & the Giants, a Musical

Feb. 8, 10:20 a.m. in the Church
Come join the armies of the Israelites and Philistines in the Valley of Elah. Witness the epic match between the shepherd boy, David, and mighty Goliath, a familiar story told in a new way by our children’s choirs. How does this story help us live today? Who are our giants? Don’t miss it!

Something to Talk About: a Twenties-and-Thirties Discussion Group

Sun., Feb. 8, 10:20 a.m., 2nd floor of Tate Hall
If you identify as a young adult, join us once a month for some good discussion and camaraderie between services. A moderator—often one of the clergy—will bring a theologically-minded discussion topic for the group to chew on. This is a great way to get to know other young people in the parish and to get connected to our great folks and opportunities.

Maria Valdes Voice Recital

Mon., Feb. 9, 7:30 p.m.
The next All Saints’ Church Concert Series features our own Maria Valdes! Maria was soprano soloist in our choir for five years, is a GSU graduate and is currently a full-time Adler Fellow at the San Francisco Opera. Mara is making a special trip to Atlanta to present this concert for the home crowd. It is entitled “Finding Home” as it features opera arias, American art songs & folk tunes—all personally selected by Maria for her Homecoming Concert. We’re expecting a large crowd so get your tickets early by visiting the All Saints’ Church website. $15 general admission; $10 student/senior. This is one not to miss.


Tues., Feb 10, 7:30 a.m. in Tate Hall
Guest presenter, Andrew Herschend will discuss “Multigenerational Shareholders, a CFO’s dilemma.” This discussion will be about how unlike public companies where the shareholders objectives in owning a stock is mostly homogenous, that is not the case with a family-held business where the shareholders are such by birth not choice. Thus a younger shareholder wants us to be a growth company. A mid-age shared holder is risk averse and wants wealth preservation as they start to think about retirement. The older shareholders are retired and want cash dividends.
A full, hot breakfast buffet is made available by the Men of Hope at Covenant Community. The cost is $5 and all proceeds go to the Men of Hope. Breakfast is from 7:30-8:30 a.m. All are welcome. Reservations are needed.
