Senior Ministries

 Senior Ministry Mission Statement....

Enabling seniors to continue to experience the baptismal promise of being part of the Lord’s family.

But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body's growth in building itself up in love.”    Ephesians 4:15-16

Friday Friendly Luncheon

November 10

12NOON in the Fellowship Hall



 "Singing TV Guy”

Mike Chamberlin returns to perform the “Love Songs of WWII.” Some of the greatest love songs of all time came out of the early 1940s and the call to arms. These songs served as an inspiration to the soldiers and the loved ones they left behind and a tribute to the men and women who served, fought or died in WWII. A true trip down music's memory lane. We will also observe Veteran’s Day.

Join us for a hot, catered meal in the fellowship of others. A suggested donation of $10 helps us operate. Sign-up sheets will be at the Senior Ministry Cart (red and white striped awning in Narthex) and at the church office reception area. Contact Maritta Fink if you would like to bake a dessert or help clean up after the event.

Monthly luncheons for seniors are held the second Friday of each month September through May at 12:00 noon. All are welcome.

Calling Tree & New Daily Check-in Choice


Do you live alone?  Would you like a daily reassurance call from an All Saints friend?


Calling Tree is just what you're looking for.  Calling Tree is a service offered by volunteers from All Saints Lutheran Church.  The program is offered year round and without charge.

Every morning program participants call their designated volunteer.  When a volunteer does not receive a call from their appointed participant, they will initiate a standard procedure to locate the participant and ensure that he/she does not need assistance.

In addition to our on-going telephone assurance program, you can now choose to be partnered with just one person and check in with each other via cell phone, text, email or whatever method works best for the two of you. A quick text each morning will allow you to be assured that someone knows you are okay.

For more information, please contact Maritta Fink at 602-866-9191 ext. 110 or mfink@allsaintsphoenix.org or click
