Greeters Needed 
I would like to meet with people interested in the greeter’s ministry. Being a greater is a vital ministry welcoming people to All Saints’. Did you know that 85% of people greeted by a lay person return to the church? This would be a once or twice a month commitment. We need greeters for the 8 o’clock service, and for the 10:30 service. Please contact Kimby at the church for my contact information at 479-968-3622 and I will return your email or phone call.
Thank you,

Phoenix Ave, Russellville, AR  on Saturday, May 27th, 2017 at 7:30 pm.  The program will include works by J.S. Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, Gershwin, Muczynski and Saint-Saens.  He will be accompanied by his father, Dr. Timothy Smith, Professor of Music at Arkansas Tech University.
Admission to the recital is free, but “love offerings” will be accepted in support of Noah’s attendance at the 2017 Lutheran Summer Music (LSM). LSM is a 4 week intensive church/music camp for grades 9-12 being held at Valparaiso University in Indiana. LSM will match at 33% any funds raised by the student through their church.

He is a life-long member of All Saints, where he sings in the Adult Choir and serves at the altar.

Central Pres has placed a Blessing Box outside the Denver street entrance.  We have learned in the last couple of months that there is a high demand for basic food and clothing in our area.  We would like to invite your congregations to be a part of this ministry.  We check it each morning to make sure it is stocked.  We look to provide foods that keep well and are ready to eat.  We also stock it with clothing and diapers and basic hygiene items. Please donate by dropping off your donations at Central Pres.
