Each month we will highlight our missions that we are supporting. There will be many opportunities to help with our local and international missions. Please help us in anyway you can.
Food Co-Op: Our Food Co-Op is a Proud Partner with the Food Bank of Iowa. This partnership helps the church provide more food options in the Food Co-Op. Through the Food Bank, the church is able to obtain dairy products, meats, eggs, and produce.
Blessing Box: The Church sponsors a Blessing Box near the church sign. The Box is available 24/7 to allow the community to both take items and to supply items. Once a week, the Church places various items that change on a weekly basis. These items have included cereals, quick meals and hygiene products in the Box.
Local Mission: The church emphasizes twice a year donations to the Margaret Carlson Compassion Fund. Margaret Carlson was a long-time member of the church and loved to help others in need. The Compassion Fund goes to help with emergency needs in the community. It is frequently used to help with MidAmerica Energy bills.
National Mission: In September, the church members were encouraged to support the Morgan Scott Project thrift store in Tennessee. The store helps the Project meet the needs of the people in the counties of Morgan and Scott, two of the poorest counties in Tennessee.
International Mission: In November, the church accepts donations for Panamerican Institute, a middle school located in Tijuana, Mexico. The donations go to providing food baskets for the families of the children who attend the school.
International Mission: During April and October, church members take a collection for Jonathan who lives at Happy Life Children’s Home. The Home provides the abandoned children of Kenya a home and a hope for adoption. Its goals are:
To bring new hope to abandoned children
To provide the babies with quality caregivers who love the babies and their Lord
To meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of each child
To create a “family” atmosphere for the children within the Home and within the church
To have each child adopted by a Christian family www.happylifechildrenshome.com
