Fall Bible Study Starts September 13

Wednesday Night Bible Study: "Exploring the Bible"

Discover anew the wonderful, rich, extraordinary, sometimes mysterious story of the Bible.

About the course:  Many of us are intimidated by the Bible. It seems too distant, too difficult to understand, and too long. Exploring the Bible is a twenty-six session curriculum that uncovers the vast, sweeping, story of God's extraordinary love for ordinary people, in a clear and easy-to-follow format. 

Each session, participants read selections from the Bible with passages excerpted and condensed by biblical scholars for easier reading. On this journey through the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, participants learn that the hope God offered to the faithful in ages past is the very same hope to which God is calling us today.Through thought-provoking questions in the curriculum and weekly group discussions, participants examine the highlights of the biblical narrative -- and learn how the pieces of the story fit together.

Wednesdays 6:30-7:45 p.m.

Wednesday Night Dinner is served at 6:00 p.m. (optional)

Series begins on September 13. Led by parish clergy. 

Cost: $15.00 to register for materials. Our supplemental text will be The Path, published by Forward Movement, which is the story of the Bible, excerpted from the New Revised Standard Version so that it is clear and easy to read. The Path should be ordered in advance of class, so please contact Ted Clarkson to place an order by emailing Ted@asecfw.org or calling him at 817-732-1424.

Fall Adult Forum Series: The Holy Land

Adult Forum Series, "The Holy Land", begins Sunday, September 17

Sundays at 10:10 a.m. in DeWolfe Hall   |   Led by Fr. Jambor

 Our Fall Adult Forum Series on Sunday mornings  is a "traveling companion" to our Wednesday Bible Study. While you'll discover a path through the Bible through Wednesday Bible Study, our Adult Forum will teach you all about the Holy Land, past and present. We've all heard the names of rivers, mountains, deserts, and towns as we read the Bible and hear the readings during the Eucharist. But through this class, we'll dig deep into the Holy Land and come to a fuller, richer understanding of the places and people that have made the region what it is, historically and today. 

All are encouraged to join us in the exploration!

All Saints' pledges $40,000

The Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church announced that the Vestry has approved a parish pledge of $40,000 over two years to support the growth of Episcopal churches in the Diocese of Fort Worth.


While visiting our diocese on April 8th, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church launched the “New Life Fund: Growing in New Ways Campaign.”  The campaign is meant to raise $200,000 over a two-year period to complement the $600,000 grant which the rest of The Episcopal Church has committed to grow this Church in North Texas.


Among other things, this money will help this diocese expand our presence in Parker County west of Fort Worth, something our bishop, the Rt. Rev. Scott Mayer, is very keen on doing.  It is expected that over the next decade roughly 50,000 families will be moving into the Walsh Ranch development.  The Episcopal Church intends to be there to welcome them.


All Saints’ $40,000 pledge represents what Fr. Chris Jambor calls a “13th month assessment” to the diocese to be used for church planting.  The monthly diocesan assessment which All Saints’ sends in is just over $20,000.  So, in 2017 and 2018, All Saints’ will add a “13th month assessment” ($20,000) to its diocesan support, or $40,000 over the two years.  “What this means,” according to Fr. Jambor, “is that every single person in our parish who gives any money to our mission and ministries will have a hand in spreading the gospel and the Church beyond the walls of All Saints’.”
