Ushers Needed!

All Saints' will re-open our building for inside services on April 11th. We will need several ushers to guide people (in a safe manner) to seats in both the nave (our main worship area) and Sutherland Hall. Procedures will be different from those to which we have been accustomed. If you are willing to serve as an usher, please come to a meeting on Saturday, April 10th, at 3 pm in Shoemaker to go over how things will work in the coming weeks. If you plan to attend, please let Teri know as well at We hope to return to ministry teams before long.
Maternity Leave for Melissa Simpson

Melissa Simpson remains on maternity leave and will return the beginning of May.
Volunteers Needed
We need your help!

We hope to re-start worship services in our church building on April 11th. In order to give us more space to spread out and so remain physically distanced, seating will be provided in Sutherland (where the service will be streamed and Eucharist distributed) as well as in our usual worship space. This means that we will need to prepare Sutherland Hall for Sunday mornings on Saturdays afternoons after Neighbors Table has finished for the day. If you and/or your family would be willing to volunteer to help do this once a month, please reach out to Catherine Crews at 479-264-4346 or

An Update From the Busch Family
Many people have been concerned about the Busch family and asking about them. The following is an update from Sue:

Charlie’s cancer is terminal but because it is a different kind of cancer than we thought at first, it is treatable. He has responded well to radio isotope therapy with number and size of tumors reduced. No new malignancy has been found. This is obviously good news. More importantly his symptoms are managed and he has regained weight and is working on strength. We meet with his physician in April for a six month evaluation and will have a prognosis and treatment plan after that. Right now he feels good and would welcome calls. We are fully vaccinated and ready to cautiously venture. I will update again in April.

Please keep Charlie, Sue, and their entire family in your prayers.
