USPS Food Drive - May 12
On Saturday, May 12, the HTLC Food Pantry will receive food from the USPS Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. We need volunteers to help sort the food - last year we received 18,000 pounds of it! All ages are welcome. The food will arrive sometime after 2:00 pm; sorting will likely last until at least 5:00 pm. We will also need help sorting food on Monday, May 14, at 11:00 am. Come help as you are able.
Annual Meeting - May 20
The Annual Meeting of the Congregation will be held immediately following the 10:00 am service on Sunday, May 20. Following the meeting, all are invited to a chili fundraiser lunch to benefit the middle school mission trip.
Help with Love Lunches
Meals for kids and families who could use a hot lunch will be served at Holy Trinity on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the summer. We need volunteers to help cook at the Methodist Church, deliver the food to HTLC, serve, and provide activities for the kids. If you are willing to help, sign up online here or contact Karen Bush at 515-979-4333.
Sign Up for Dessert for Eight
Join a  Dessert for Eight Group  and enjoy dessert at a restaurant with a group of members from HTLC. Each person is expected to pay for their own food at a restaurant. The important part of the gathering is to meet and connect with others. Your group will meet once a month for four months starting in June.  Sign up online  or in the Narthex  by May 31 .
Vacation Bible School 2018
Vacation Bible School and Hands and Feet will be held July 9-13 this summer. Check out the table by the Red Wall for more information. We’ve put out a wish tree filled with items we’ll be needing for VBS. If you’d like to like to help us out, you can take a tag off the tree and return the item to the blue bin by June 10. Sign up to attend or to volunteer on the church website. 

Journey Through Grief
UnityPoint Hospice and St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Urbandale are hosting a grief support group.  Over six sessions, learn about how you grieve, discover coping tools for dealing with loss and change, and develop a new support network. The group meets the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 pm, June through November. Learn more here.
Holy Trinity Food Pantry
The Holy Trinity Food Pantry is in need of the following items:
  • Cake mixes and baking supplies
  • Personal care items, including shampoo, deodorant, etc.
  • Recently purchased ground beef, chicken or other mainstay meats that are in 1-2 pound packages and have an easy-to-read date on them. Take them directly to the freezer in the Fellowship Hall, next to the Hearty Blessings freezer.
