“Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an account of the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence.” 1 Peter 3:15–16a

In the 131+ years since All Saints Church’s founding in Bay Head on the iconic New Jersey Shore, its members have journeyed on smooth seas and weathered storms, both metaphorical and real.

Nearly eight years after surviving Superstorm Sandy, which nearly destroyed our church building and irreparably damaged the rectory, we are again sailing on uncharted seas. We have been buffeted but not overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic downturn and cultural and political uncertainties.

Our building may be closed out of an abundance of caution, but our church is open. We gather every Sunday morning at 10:15 for worship via Zoom (look to your right on this page for the information on how to join us). We continue, within the constraints necessitated by the coronavirus’ spread, to baptize babies and to help families say good-bye to loved ones. We pray for our families and friends, for those who work to keep us safe, for our nation and the world, and for ourselves. We turn outward and find ways to help others in our communities and around the world.

We live in hope because of our faith in Jesus and his promises. He has invited us to travel with him along the Way of Love and build the beloved community that is open to all. No matter who you are and where you are on your own journey, we welcome you and offer you our companionship on the way.

the Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg, D.D.

Interim Rector

Flowers and Light
June 2020
**To the glory of God** All Saints Church members have traditionally commemorated their family’s significant life events by sponsoring altar flowers and the sanctuary light. You can continue that tradition during these pandemic days. Even though we are not worshipping in the building, the sanctuary light is still burning to indicate that consecrated Eucharistic elements are present. You may still sponsor the light. And, while we are not purchasing flowers for the altar each week, you are invited to contribute to a virtual altar flower fund. The suggested donation for the sanctuary candle is $10.00, and $20.00 for virtual altar flowers. You can make your donation via eGiving or by sending a check to the Altar Guild at the church.
eGiving
June 2020
We're pleased to announce that eGiving is now active on our website. It is a tab on the upper right of the front page that when clicked will give a drop down menu to walk you through the transaction using a credit card. It is a very simple procedure similar to making other charitable donations online.
