Stewardship information was handed out this past Sunday, November 8. If you were at worship, you should have been handed a packet. If you didn’t attend in-person worship this past Sunday, the packet was sent to you via the USPS. The Stewardship Committee would like the pledge cards returned no later than Sunday, November 22. You may either bring the pledge card to church and place it in the offering plate or you may mail it to church in the envelop that was included with the packet.

Help needed for upgrade in the food pantry
The All Saints Food Pantry was awarded a grant from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land

Stewardship for the purchase of two commercial grade refrigerators. Before we have them installed, we are going to remove the old carpet in the two adjoining rooms and have new commercial grade carpet installed. 

We are asking for the congregations help to move everything out of those two rooms after church service on November 15th. This will include racks of food, freezers, refrigerators, and shelving. On Friday, November 20th at 9:00 a.m. we will need help to put everything back for the food pantry on Saturday. If you have any questions, please call or text Bonnie at 563-370-7076. 
Thank you.

Food Pantry & Clothing Closet
Did you know that the All Saints Lutheran Church Food Pantry & Clothing Closet is one of the busiest in the Quad Cities? It takes numerous people to volunteer to make this ministry happen. People are needed to not only volunteer when the food pantry & clothing closet are open on Saturdays, but various days throughout the week. If you can help sometime throughout the week talk to Bonnie, Anne, or Sheryn to coordinate.

Every Friday volunteers are needed to help unload food from RiverBend Food Bank from 9:30 – 10:30 am at All Saints. We have a great crew that picks up the loads from RiverBend on a weekly basis!

If you are interested in working in our food pantry or clothing closet on Saturdays, please sign up for a shift or two at

Contact Anne, Bonnie, or Sheryn if you have questions, would like to donate, or prefer talking to someone about volunteering. Thank you for helping people in need in our community!
