"Screenagers"

IMPORTANT: Film is free, but please RSVP here.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

'Creating Landmarks' - A Lectio + Visual Arts Making Response Workshop
Apr
17
to May 22

'Creating Landmarks' - A Lectio + Visual Arts Making Response Workshop

In the Easter season, All Saints’ will offer a time to sit with scripture and respond through the visual arts, led by Amy B. Fetzer, the Artist-in-Residence at Soapstone UMC.

Amy will help us to create a journal response to our lectionary readings, connecting to the generous offering of God's full hospitality extended to us in Word. We'll read the selection aloud, noticing details and the images on our hearts and then work contemplatively in watercolor wash, collage, and written word, creating a response - a landmark - honoring how God is at work in us, being present and in community with the Holy Spirit. We will share these responses, in our small group, allowing God to speak through our sharing as the Spirit moves.

Please RSVP as spots are limited. The course will be weekly on Tuesdays from 6:30-8pm, beginning April 17 and ending May 22nd. Childcare is available, upon request.

Church Family Campout

On our church's tenth anniversary, we'll be gathering together at the church for a campout!

For $20 per camp spot, everyone is invited to spend the night grilling, gaming, and watching an outdoor movie together. This would be perfect for families of all ages and for a quick getaway in town. This will be our first fundraiser for our playground and courtyard area!

A few FAQ: 

  • It's BYO food, beverage, and gear; just like a regular campout! But we'll have a giant grill, power/electricity, and indoor plumbing as well.
  • If you'd like to hangout, rather than the overnight, that's great!
  • We’ll be watching a big outdoor movie, as well as guided walk to see the gravestones at the cemetery!  
  • Check in starts @4pm (Friday)/Check out is @11am (Saturday)
  • Send an email to cody@allsaintsumc.org for any questions!
