SAYING GOODBYE
Our Beloved Chip Mays, Choir Director has been a joy and a blessing to all of us with his music, sense of humor and deep commitment to serve the good people of All Saints. The time has come where God has called him out of All Saints to another call at our Savior Church.  Chip will be leaving All Saints. He will be with is through Easter Sunday, which is also his last day with us.   Please take time to say thanks to Chip.  We will have coffee hour on Sunday following the service to wish him well.  More to come!!
