APRIL MISSION COLLECTION: Throughout the month of April, we’ll be collecting food for the Bridge Home in Ames. They need packaged food that does not need to be refrigerated and that can be heated in a microwave with no additional preparation required. Canned ready-to-eat soups and other foods that can be opened without a can opener. Also socks and underwear for men and women. Bring your donations to the church and place them in the collection box in the narthex. They will be distributed to those in need at the Bridge Home in Ames as well as in our local communities.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR INDIVIDUALS WILLING TO LEARN TO RUN OUR SOUND/VIDEO SYSTEM. If God has gifted you with a skill for technology, please talk to Mark Thomas or Brad Becker to see how you can help. Brad has offered to teach a class to anyone interested in learning.
