Other Opportunities to Serve All Saints

Office Helper:  Help is needed to assemble special mailings, newsletters and Sunday announcement bulletins.

How often:  weekly - please volunteer as much as you are able!

 

Library Helper:  Help is needed to check in and shelve books and to process materials.   Training can be provided!  Anne Morgart is the Church Librarian.

How often:  As need as determined by the Librarian

 

Synod Assembly Delegate:  Every year, congregations from the Northern Illinois Synod gather on the third weekend in June at Augustana College in Rock Island IL  The business of the Synod is taken care of at that time (such as approving a budget for the Synod as well as setting policy and so forth)  In 2016 the assembly added one extra day to allow time for the process of electing a new Bishop.  In addition to the above, this is a wonderful opportunity to worship together. All Saints covers the cost of attendance at this assembly  and in addition to the Pastor we are allowed to send three voting members and one youth voting member.

How often:  Once a year in June  This is an overnight trip and we stay at a local hotel at the delegate's expense.  All Saints would cover the cost of on-campus dormitory accommodations.

Prayer Chain

Facilitated by Gloria Olsen

 

Is prayer an important part of your life?  In prayers we talk to God who cares about us.  God answers our prayer but we also are to pray for God's will to be done.  The prayer chain is a group of faithful who pray upon request.  If you have a prayer request, you can call the church office or fill out the yellow prayer request card in the folder with the Friendship Pads  if you would like to be  member of the prayer chain, please mark that box on your time and talent sheet.
