Neighbors Table, hosted in Sutherland Hall by All Saints’ Episcopal Church at 501 South Phoenix in Russellville, is committed to offering a free lunch every Saturday to those in our community who are struggling to provide hot meals for themselves and their families. In partnership with Central Presbyterian Church, New Prospect Baptist Church, the Community Involvement Project of the Pope County Juvenile Court and other groups in our community, we welcome all who are hungry for food or for fellowship. Motivated by the desire to know and serve our neighbors, and honoring all persons, we gather around the table to share God’s abundance.
To help with Neighbors Table by working on a cooking/serving/clean-up team or bringing dessert, call the church office or sign up on the white boards in Sutherland Hall. Eating and visiting with Neighbors Table guests on any Saturday between noon and 1pm can be a pleasure for you and is helpful, too.
We are delighted to see people signing up on the white boards in Sutherland. Please take a look and sign up for a day and job you can help with. Our jobs are easy and you’ll have lots of help. We hope you will join us soon! All volunteers must be fully vaccinated; we still follow safety precautions from start to finish. Questions? Text or call Charlie at 479-857-0480 or Catherine at 479-264-4346. Please remember Neighbors Table in your prayers. We give grateful thanks for the abundant support that our church and our community provide this ministry.
Loaves and Fishes
Most of the guests who join us on Saturday for lunch face many challenges; the Members and Friends of All Saints’ can provide a few essential items to help them out. Gifts received on Sunday worship services will be available for our Neighbors Table guests to pick up on the following Saturday. Lists of items to donate include cereal, dry shelf milk, personal hygiene items, toilet paper, detergent and dish soap.
Loaves and Fishes, a part of the Neighbors Table ministry, needs to restock its cupboard. Here are items needed now for our guests:
- Cereal and oatmeal
- Small containers of shelf stable milk
- packages of peanut butter crackers, cookies, granola bars, etc.
- Feminine hygiene products – pads and tampons
- Bath soap
- Toothbrushes (adult and children’s), toothpaste, and floss
- Dish detergent
- Baby wipes
- Children’s and adult socks
- Adult disposable underwear – men’s medium and women’s large
Neighbors Table asks that you bring your donations to All Saints’ Episcopal Church on Saturdays between 9:00 AM and 12:30 PM. Please place your gifts in the Loaves and Fishes Wagon at the door outside Sutherland Hall. Also, you can place your donations on Sundays in the wagon that will be in the narthex. As a reminder, you can support Neighbors Table with a donation to Food Ministries in the Giving tab at the All Saints’ webpage.
