Dear saints,

It is a great delight to be able to announce that Scott Lamlein will be joining us in May as our new Director of Music. Scott comes to All Saints' with years of extensive experience as a music maker and leader.

He currently serves as Director of Music at St. John's Episcopal Church, West Hartford CT (, where he has built choirs for all ages and has been very successful in growing community partnerships, especially through a nonprofit he helped to form called Music at the Red Door which has funded concert performances and music camps at St. John's (

Scott also brings a keen appreciation of our love of both the Anglican choral tradition and a diverse repertoire of other music at All Saints'. Scott's wife, Mary Beth, and the youngest of their grown children, Andrew, will move down to Atlanta in May and join our staff in the second half of that month.

Here's a word of introduction from Scott himself:

'Hello, All Saints! I can't express how excited I am to become your new Director of Music. My wife, Mary Beth, and twenty-year-old son, Andrew, are coming with me from central Connecticut and all three of us have fallen—quickly—for the amazing mission of All Saints' in the city. We look forward to meeting you and becoming part of this unparalleled church family.

Though a big leap for us, there is no question in my mind that our journey to this decision was led by the Holy Spirit. Please keep us in your prayers as we make the move to Atlanta in the coming months. The tradition of great music at All Saints' is well-known nationally, and so I am honored and humbled to be the next person to help guide that ministry forward. There is so much we can accomplish together on the block and beyond. Our music—a total gift from God—has the power to feed souls, connect, and soothe. I can't wait to get started!' 

The success of our search would not have been possible without the extraordinary efforts of our parish search committee: Katherine Brokaw (chair), Charlie Boyd, Lisa Gomez, Barbara Hammond, Alvin Moore, Holly Stevens, Frank Timmerman and Julie Wilson. I am deeply grateful for all they have given to the parish through the course of the past several months. 

Please do join me in praying for Scott, Mary Beth and Andrew as they bid farewell to New England and prepare for the exciting new chapter of life that awaits them among us.

Photo of the Week

On Wednesday, February 28, in lieu of our usual Wednesday Night Supper, All Saints' hosted a Core Ministries' Progressive Dinner, based in Ellis Hall. We will enjoyed a special Italian dinner to celebrate our love for our four Core Ministries and all they give each day to the community.

Each of the four (4) Core Ministries, Threads, Midtown Assistance Center (MAC) (pictured), Refugee Ministries and Covenant Community had representatives on site for parishioners to learn more about their important work in the community. We held group tours of each ministry’s headquarters on the block for visitors to learn more. Finally, we enjoyed a scavenger hunt to engage newcomers, with questions answered and passports stamped. Afterward, everyone was invited to return to Ellis Hall for desserts and prizes.

This coming Sunday at All Saints' is Midtown Assistance Center (MAC) Sunday, where we shine a light on MAC's work providing prevention assistance to the working poor in midtown and downtown Atlanta, focused on aiding in the most important basic needs: housing, food, and clothing. Executive Director Jennifer Jobson will share words with the congregation at both the 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. Show your support for MAC by participating in the Lenten Food Drive (more information is available in the "This Sunday" section of the newsletter above)!

We would love to get to know you! Our community looks forward to you joining us for upcoming services and events throughout the year! For more information visit


“We are grateful for the households who have made planned gifts to All Saints' (gifts you make while you are alive to be given after your death). These gifts have made 120 years of All Saints’ a reality for all of us. Consider what your life would be like without the church and conversations we have here that pull us toward what really matters. Contact me to begin a discussion about making a planned gift.”

Bonhoeffer's Worldly Christianity and Its Relevance Today 

Wednesdays in winter, beginning February 21 – March 20, 6:45 p.m. - 8:15 p.m., P 305/306 and on Zoom

Many U.S. Christians are drawn to Dietrich Bonhoeffer—the twentieth-century, German, pastor-theologian and Nazi resister—because he courageously lived what he believed. While plenty of Christians admire Bonhoeffer as a historical figure or an exemplar of Christian faith, far less do the harder work of reading his theology. After gaining an overview of his life and work through the documentary, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Pacifist, Nazi Resister, this course, led by The Rev. Dr. Jennifer McBride, will introduce participants to some of Bonhoeffer’s most compelling theological concepts and explore their relevance for Christian discipleship and public engagement today. To participate in this class via Zoom, please visit and enter password “AdultFormation2024”.
