What’s New @ All Angels’ Church
Easter Blessing Foot Care Kits @ Pathways
This Easter season (April 4-May 23), we will be blessing our neighbors experiencing homelessness with Foot Care Kits! To participate, purchase items from our list and put in a ziplock or cosmetics bag. Contents should include: nail clippers, foot powder, anti-fungal cream, alcohol pads, bandaids, and blister covers. Our goal is 100 kits. Make as many as you can! You can make 1 or 10 or 20… Kits can be delivered to our Operations Team on: Monday & Wednesday (12-3pm or 5-7pm), Tuesday & Thursday (7am-5pm) or Sunday (8am-2pm). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Minari Movie Showing - Thursday, April 22nd
Hello friends! It’s me, Seth T. It’s movie watching season again, and I will be going to see Minari at the Cinema 123 on 60th and 3rd Ave this upcoming Thursday, April 22nd at 7:45PM. I’ve seen it once, I got to see it again, and boy, would I love company! IT’S SO SO SO GOOD!!
Minari has 6 Oscar nominations (though who cares what the Oscars think!). A Korean family moves from California to Arkansas, set on growing a farm. Minari asks fantastic questions about the American dream, about family, and about religion. It moved me to tears and was such a joy to experience! Check out this piece my professor wrote for Vox, titled “The Bittersweet promise of America.”
In terms of logistics, you can find tickets online here. I spoke to a theater representative and they told me tickets will be available right until showtime. Coordinate ahead of time if you would like to sit with friends! If you buy tickets together, you can sit together. They require masks at all times, except when you are seated in your reserved seat in the auditorium (as they have socially distanced auditoriums). Ticket prices run 20$ for adults, 16$ for children, and 18$ for seniors. I advise buying tickets well in advance to ensure a prime seat. Google reviews tell me the theater has some super comfy chairs.
After the event we can grab a drink and some snacks at The Treadwell. It’s a seven minutes walk from the theater. If you are coming, please email me at email@example.com. I hope to see you there!!
P.S. Please note Cinemas 123 is owned by Angelika theater, a separate theater in NYC. Go to Cinema 123, not Angelika.
Healing Prayer during Sunday Worship
With the assistance of highly qualified youth to provide tech support, we will provide Healing prayer beginning at the prayers of the people and going through the end of the service for those who would like to be prayed for by someone on our team. Please join the Prayer Zoom room! You will be sent to a “waiting space” before transitioning to a private breakout room with one of our prayer ministers. These will be brief times, similar in length to what we usually do during the Eucharist when we were in in-person worship.
Easter Kintsugi Workshop: Saturday, April 17, @9am
Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of mending broken ceramics with precious metals, restoring the vessel’s usefulness and elevating its beauty and value–a wonderful Easter image! Register to take part in a reflective, hands-on workshop to learn this redemptive art in Eastertide with facilitator Vesper Stamper on Saturday, April 17, 9:00am-12:00pm. The workshop will be presented virtually with a limited in-person option. Individual registration is $65 and includes one Kintsugi kit. Additional materials for virtual participants will need to be obtained separately, but we’ll ship your kit to you directly. Learn more by visiting the registration link here or contact Seth Little, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions.

Continuing @ All Angels’ Church
Easter Reading Group: Art & Faith by Mako Fujimura
You’re invited to read Mako Fujimura’s new book Art & Faith through Eastertide as we explore connections between our own habits of “making” and the Christian hope for a New Creation. Weekly discussions will take place on Wednesdays, 7:00-8:00pm over Zoom here. Order your own copy of Art & Faith here. Contact Seth Little or Seth Trouwborst with questions.
Easter Season Morning Prayer
This Easter Season (April 5-May 21), Morning Prayer will be offered Mondays-Fridays 7:15-7:45am on Zoom, co-facilitated by Dongmyung Ahn and Gina Lapinski. The liturgy is from the Book of Common Prayer, but BCP is not necessary. Please consider joining us for this daily offering here.
In Response to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Hate
As All Angels’ leadership, we grieve and denounce the subtle discriminations, inequitable structures and overt violence that exists in our culture based on skin color. Given the spike in violence this year targeting Asians and Asian Americans, we want to acknowledge and support our sisters and brothers who bear the brunt of this evil. Please read more about what we’re doing and how you can get involved at this link here.
Meal Ministry - New Registry
We have yet another baby joining the All Angels’ family! Click here to support the new registry for the McCulloch family. Homemade meals are of course welcome, but delivery works too if you live far away or don’t cook. This is a helpful, easy way to serve our community. We also always need more volunteers! You will get a link to a new registry as needs arise. Please add your name to the registry by emailing email@example.com.
Covid-19 Task Force: Vaccine Assistance
Are you eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine and would like help getting an appointment? The Covid-19 task force is ready with information and willing hands. We can do anything from scheduling a vaccine on your behalf to sharing info about appointment websites. We also welcome hearing from volunteers who can help with bookings or might be able to accompany a parishioner to a vaccine appointment. To get help or offer help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Want to connect with friends? Meet people you haven’t seen for a while? Find out who’s new in church? Meet the old-timers? Share about life? Join us on Zoom just 5 minutes after the Sunday morning service and bring your own coffee! Click the Zoom link here to join.
