Food Pantry and Clothing Closet

The food pantry continues to be one of the busiest food pantries in the Quad Cities! For the past few months, the food pantry & clothing closet have served over 100 families each week.

Thank you for all the volunteers who work tirelessly each week whether that is when we are open to the public or during the week to prepare. We would greatly appreciate help this Friday, August 12 at 9:15 am to unload food from Riverbend Food Bank. The Food Pantry & Clothing Closet are open every Saturday from 11 am – 1 pm, even holiday weekends.

The food pantry is in need of toilet paper, bars of individually wrapped soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, peanut butter, spaghetti noodles, soup, and plastic grocery bags.

Donations are received Fridays between 9:30 and 10:00 am, Saturdays between 10:30 am and 1:00 pm, or Sundays between 9:15 am and 11:15 am. If these times don’t work call Bonnie, Anne, or the office to coordinate.

Sunday Morning Worship

All are Welcome!

All Saints Lutheran Church is a congregation of people called by God to ignite passion for Jesus and transform their neighborhoods with hope and love. We believe all are welcome. Really, everyone. All kinds of people, in all walks of life, call All Saints home.

Please join us for worship at 10 am on Sunday, August 14th for the 10th Sunday after Pentecost. All worship services are offered in-person in the sanctuary or via Facebook Live ( The worship service can be watched later on the church’s Facebook newsfeed or on the church’s YouTube channel ( If you would like worship items to be able to actively participate while watching worship online, please let the office know. There is fellowship time following worship in the gathering space.

Worship at All Saints might look and feel a little different. We carefully and prayerfully select a worship theme each season, and we choose songs and liturgical elements that help communicate that theme and bring us closer to God and to one another.

Note: There is new software being used for projection, and there is a slight learning curve for the people running projection on Sunday mornings.

The sermon was not available for the podcast from August 7th, sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Worship Planning Meeting

The worship planners will have a meeting on Monday, August 15th at 6:00 pm in the library to plan the rest of the season of Pentecost (note this is a change in date and time).

Council Meeting

The council will meet on Tuesday, August 16th at 5:15 pm for their monthly meeting in the library at church.

Attention Women of the Congregation

Dear Sisters in Christ,

Cluster 6 meeting will take place Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022, at St. James Lutheran Church in Bettendorf, starting at 9 AM with a light breakfast and ending at 11:30 AM.  We are planning to provide crocheted or knitted prayer squares for our five delegates from SEIA women’s synod that are planning to attend the Triennial next fall in Phoenix, AZ.  Ideally we need 250 total.  We will also be collecting quilts for Lutheran World Relief, and tying quilts at the workshop, and also rolling bandages for Global Health.  Many hands make light work!  Hope you can join us.  

Attendees should contact Linda Kortemeyer at or 563-271-3309. Please let her know if interested in crocheting or knitting, as we will provide hooks and needles if needed, preferably size F hook for crocheting.  We will also provide yarn.  Doris Mack will help teach the pattern for these crochet squares, and we plan to have someone for the knitting as well.  Hopefully, once you have the instructions, more squares can be completed after the work day to be collected at our spring meeting.

We will plan to collect hygiene items for St. James Food Pantry and cash donations are also appreciated for supporting our cluster and synod and the food pantry.

Take care, and prayers for everyone’s health,

Cindee Schnekloth

Cluster 6 coordinator
