Pathways Holiday Hours: Thursday, November 23rd 8-11am Shower and mail service only. Women’s showers from 8-9am. Men’s showers 9-11am.
Friendly Reminder to be on time to services: We realize that the recent time change has us all a little groggy and running behind. This is just a friendly reminder to please show up on time for service to minimize interruptions and distractions after the service has begun. In case it’s the trains that have you running behind - check the MTA Weekender for travel updates to map out the best route.
Opportunities for Giving, Serving & Having Fun!:
Pledging for 2018. In this season of giving thanks, how have you witnessed and experienced God's abundant blessing at All Angels'? This Sunday is our goal date for receiving pledges for 2018.

There will be an opportunity to fill out your pledge during service this Sunday or you can fill out your pledge here before then.
