Back-Up Children's Sunday School Teacher Needed 

​Due to health problems that cause her to be  absent some Sunday mornings, Ann  Linton would appreciate help with the children. Having a backup for when she is unable to attend would ensure that the children always have someone with them for prayer and a short Bible lesson, followed by fun crafts.  Let Ann know if you are interested.


Pastor's Office Hours

Just  a reminder: Pastor Mohr is in the office most every morning Tuesday through Friday.  Stop by at any time.  If  Pastor is not in the office, you can reach him by phone 501-697-5761 (cell)


Shut Ins

​Please remember our shut-ins: Jean Allen (home), & Juanita Blue (residing at Village Park of Conway).  Pray for them and visit them as you can. Jean Allen has a new phone number 501-245-1354. Orphans and widows have a special place in God's heart.  They should have a special place in your heart as well.

​​​​News from the Fellowship Committee 


​October 14: Fellowship lunch will be Soup Sunday. 

Next month, we will be looking for men who would like to demonstrate their chili or soup skills. We will also need veggies, crackers, desserts and anything else that might go well with soup.  Please contact Elaine Kahler if you are interested.  If you know what you will bring, tell Elaine and we can make a sign ahead of time to let everyone know what is in each soup.


FOOD PANTRY

CAPCA's Food Pantry is always happy to receive donations.  If you are interested in donating, please contact Terri Kemper at 501-329-33891 ext 2133 or email terrikemper@capcainc.org


Backpack Program

The backpack program resumed September 19 @ 12:00 p.m. at Antioch Baptist Church located at 150 Amity  Road, Conway AR 72032.  There are two opportunities to help!  Use your hands to help assemble the goods for delivery to the schools...just go upstairs and look for the room with the friendly people and groceries.  They are friendly and assign you a spot in the assembly line. And/or register your Kroger card to support the Backpack Program if you physically lend a hand. Registering your Kroger card is an open opportunity to help all year!  Kroger cards have the option to send the Kroger rewards to charities once a quarter from Kroger.  The church office has a list of instructions on how to do this.  If you need assistance, ask Ashleigh Hawks.  They are available to help after church some Sunday if you are interested.



Kitchen Supplies

​We need someone who can keep an eye on the kitchen supplies and either buy or order them when they run low.  We will obviously reimburse the costs if you buy it at Sam's Club or wherever.  If you are interested, let pastor know.


Church Cleaner

A cleaning person has been hired.  Our deepest thanks to Susan Stevenson for her years of service.
