All Saints’ Sunday, November 2nd
All Saints' is a major feast in the life of the church with ancient roots. On All Saints' Day (and/or the Sunday that follows), we remember and give thanks to God for the lives of the saints who have demonstrated to us through their words and deeds God's love, grace and provision. And this includes not only those saints we readily recall who lived their faith heroically, but each and every baptized person, the living and the dead, whose lives reveal to us something of God's great love for the world. To this end, we invite everyone in the community to bring pictures of the saints in you own lives who have now passed into the nearer presence of our Lord and place them on the altar during the service you attend. During open space, we will have the opportunity to see the faces of all those we are remembering and light a candle in their memory. Please plan to join us for this special celebration this Sunday and please do bring pictures. If you have questions, please email Miles.
“All things come from you, O Lord”, our In-Gathering Season at St. Julian’s has now begun
The In-Gathering Season at St. Julian's is our annual opportunity to intentionally reflect on the many ways we experience God's blessings in our lives, and then discern how we are being called to gratefully participate in God's mission and ministry in and through St. Julian's in the year to come, through a pledge of time, talent and treasure. We will "gather in" our Ministry Commitment Forms that state our pledges of time, talent and treasure during a celebration on Sunday, Nov 23. On Sunday the 23rd (only), we will have one service at 9:30 AM followed by a celebratory thanksgiving meal so that we can present our gifts and celebrate as a community of the whole. Click here for a copy of our Ministry Commitment Form and click here for a copy of our In-gathering FAQ. If you have any questions about this season, stewardship at St. Julian's, or about the ways you are being called to share your blessings in and through our community, email our Stewardship Chair, Robert Wooten. Thank you for all the many ways you manifest God's love in and through this beloved community.

Please Join St. Julian’s On-Line Directory called Realm
St. Julian's has created an on-line directory for all us all to better communicate with one another and help keep our database current. We ask that one member of each household click on this link, which will forward you to our directory site (Realm) to create a user name and password. You then will be sent a separate email in which there will be a link to access you page, update you information, add a picture (if you like, and set your own privacy settings. If you have questions or encounter problems, please email Caroline or Miles. We ask all to complete your set-up by Nov 9. Following that we will be in touch with those who have not joined the directory to help you along or know you would not like to participate. We hope you will choose to be a part of our directory and that it will help us all, as our vision statement reads, "Grow in Relationship."
