Upcoming Diocesan Events
Become a Magdalene Mentor
As part of the Magdalene Coming Home project, mentors visit monthly with incarcerated women at J. A. Hawkins Unit in Wrightsville, Ark. There are several ways that you can become a part of this work:
Become a mentor and make the one-year commitment to visit a woman, one-on-one, for an hour each month.
Become a pen pal with a woman who has a longer sentence but little support from family and friends.
Mentor with women at “Hope Rises,” a women’s transitional home in
Little Rock for those who have been released from prison.
If any of these options interest you, contact Kathy Kaczmarek (501-590-2515, or Ginny Chase (303-809-5303, for more information.
Farm Camp at Camp Mitchell
Tilling the earth to grow food is a central act throughout the Bible. This camp, held July 30-Aug. 4, will examine how God challenges us to better know creation through getting our hands dirty in the soil. Learn more at

“Dear All Saints Family,
We want to express our deepest thanks to those of you who were able to attend Noah’s piano recital on May 27.  Because of your generous support, his attendance at Lutheran Summer Music this June/July has been fully funded.  He has felt overwhelmed and humbled by your kindness.  He looks forward to a summer of spiritual and musical growth and will no doubt have much to share with you when he returns.  Again, THANK YOU for nurturing Noah so beautifully in his musical and spiritual journey in the church!
With much love and gratitude, Noah, Kristin and Tim Smith”
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,
Ricki Duffee
Worship at Camp Mitchell
All are invited to worship at the Chapel of the Transfiguration at Camp Mitchell every Sunday evening at 5 p.m. for a Rite II Eucharistic liturgy. Enjoy the beauty of nature while being fed spiritually. If there is bad weather the service will move to Hoke Lodge.
Central Pres. Blessing Box!
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.
Our Neighbors Table meal on June 10 was a great success!  Our guests love fresh salad and eat as much as we can fix.  Too, we are hosting newcomers to our table almost every week.  Please remember Neighbors Table in your prayers.
To serve on a Saturday morning, call or text Catherine, 264-4346, or sign up on the white boards.  If you would like to serve in other ways, or have questions, call or text Catherine.
Team leaders and members for June 17:  Catherine Crews and Central Presbyterian Church.
Team leaders and members for June 24:  Jeff Aulgur, Crys, Leah and CIP.
