tuna for the J Street Apartment Food Pantry. Your donations may be left at the back entrance near the Welcome Center. Thank you for your generosity.

Thank You 
Thank you very much for the all study snacks and inspirational words. It is appreciated that you thought of me during this time. I have enjoyed the treats to keep me motivated. It is crazy to think the school year is over and I will be a junior next year.

                                           Thanks again,
                                           Natalie Towe

It's Time To Play!
The AGC playground surface has been repaired and has
a new look! Be sure to check it out this weekend. We ask that you continue to purchase carry out dinners from Zio Johno's. Next on the menu on May 14th from 4:00-6:15....a bucket of spaghetti and garlic loaf! Thanks always for your support!
Lawn Mowing Update
Thanks to a very generous donation, the Shueyville Church now has a 2nd riding mower. If you haven't already signed up contact a friend or nudge your spouse, or sign up together and the job can be done in half the time! The trustees are very grateful to those that have already volunteered to mow the church lawn. Thanks to the nice weather the grass has really started to grow. We want to do our best to keep the church grounds looking good for the summer. The sign up sheet is in the lobby. Pick a week and mow any time before Sunday. Contact Rick Less, 319-560-9954 if you have questions.

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
