Fellowship at All Saints
Daughters of the King (DoK)
Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others. IF you are interested in learning more or joining the All Saints Chapter of DoK, please contact Ruth Thompson.
St. Mary's Guild
St. Mary’s Guild meets the second Wednesday of each month - September thru December and February thru May. Prior to our meetings we attend the 12:10pm Eucharist in the Chapel and then gather in the Retreat Center for lunch, followed by a guest speaker, and our business meeting. We have had excellent guest speakers over the years and have learned a great deal about the various Outreach Programs in the Omaha area. St. Mary's Guild is open to all the women of the parish. For more information, please contact Sandy Hill, president.
All are welcome at the monthly gathering of the All Saints book club, Happy Bookers. We normally meet at 4:00 pm in the Retreat Center.

Bunco (also Bunko and Bonko) is a parlour game played in teams with three dice. A winning throw in Bunco is to throw three of a kind of a specified number. According to the World Bunco Association, Bunco began as a progressive dice game in England, later being imported to the American West as a gambling activity. In recent years, the game has seen a resurgence in popularity in America, particularly among suburban women. As it is played today, Bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill (there are no decisions to be made), scoring and a simple set of rules. Women who are part of a Bunco club may take turns as the Bunco hostess, providing snacks, refreshments and the tables to set up the games but this is optional. The hostess may also provide a door prize. Small amounts of money can be involved as well. The object of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations. The winners get prizes (provided by the hostess or pooled from the club resources) for accomplishments such as the highest score, the lowest score, or the most buncos.
If you have never played but are curious or would like to take part in the action, you can contact Becky Connors via email or 402-493-4714 for more information.
Next Bunco: February 5 at 6:00 pm!
Men’s Ministry of All Saints (MMAS)

Sam Fredrickson Memorial Golf Tournament

Coffee and Conversation and Bakers Schedule
The "Coffee & Conversation" gathering which follows each 10:30 service on Sundays throughout the year is vital to our parish and parishioners and its popularity continues to grow. It gives people a chance to get to know one another better and provides an excellent opportunity to chat with or be introduced to someone we don't know quite as well as we might like to. Get the current volunteer schedule HERE.
