As communities in Oklahoma reel from the devastation of tornadoes, remember, The United Methodist Church has a system in place for responding through UMCOR. UMCOR guarantees that 100% of your donation goes directly to the disaster. Please indicate UMCOR Advance number #901670 for the Oklahoma disaster in the memo of your check or on your love envelope if you would like to make a donation.
Thank you to all who give so generously of your resources. Unfortunately our April general fund income of $19,220 did not meet the expense of $25,720. May is projected to also have a shortfall. We ask that in the midst of the busy summer please remember to give as we work to accomplish great things for God’s kingdom.
Come join the Fiesta July 21 through 26 from 5:30 until 8:15 (no VBS on July 24 due to RAGBRAI). Helpers are still needed in all areas. Sign up to help create God's Fiesta and provide a great opportunity to children across our community to learn about His love! Call Katie Bishop at 641-891-1342 to sign up to help. Registration forms are available in the Narthex window. Spread the FIESTA to all your kids, grandkids, and neighbors.
The next Children’s Church will take place on Sunday, June 16th at the 9:00 a.m. service. Children’s Church will be the children dismissed after the children’s time to go down stairs for 30 minutes of story, crafts, and games. The kids can be picked up downstairs after the church service. This will be an extended learning time for children ages 2 through 5th grade.
NEXT WEEKEND IS FOOD DONATIONThe second weekend of the month is food donation weekend. Please be a part of this wonderful ministry by dropping off your canned goods and/or other nonperishable items in the basket in the Narthex.
