All Saints' Outreach Programs:

 Outreach Programs, Discretionary Fund , Food Pantry & Disaster Assistance


Together with a dozen or more Roanoke Rapids' churches, All Saints' assists many people in need.  This is frequently performed by our church making a donation for rent or a utility and adding another church's donations to meet the needs of a community member who has come upon hard times.


Frequently there is a need to assist with food:  All Saints' has some stocked - at church, donated and purchased with  donations from plate offerings for the purpose of keeping up our own food pantry. 

At All Saints', plate offerings given on the first Sunday are designated for the Rector's Discretionary Fund.  The second, third and fifth Sunday offerings are used directly for outreach.  Some outreach gifts in the past have gone to the Union Mission, John 3:16, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, Children's Miracle Network, Hannah's House, Angel's Closet, Food for the Poor, Stop Hunger Now and Episcopal Relief and Development.

A vestry member serves as the chair of the outreach committee; Val Short is currently the chair.  The committee determines how the offerings will be given and are open to suggestions.  Members are Ginny Orvedahl, Pat Barnes, Mary Wellman, Richard Thiele and Bill Hodge.
