Wear work clothes and BRING A SACK LUNCH as we will eat and then get to work until approximately 1pm. Meet at shelter #3 at approximately 10:45 (allows for people to leave worship at 10:30).
HALLOWEEN FOOD DRIVE
All through the month of October we are again collecting food and monetary donations for DMARC Food Pantries. Please donate items to the orange bin in front of the church! We will provide a social media post to share, and DMARC will make us with a link for online financial contributions. We will send both when completed. Spread the word!

FUEL: NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL/YOUTH GROUP FOR INTERMEDIATE GRADES
Sixth graders, you have another opportunity to enjoy faith and fellowship on Sundays! Sixth graders are invited to be leaders in this new group, targeting upper elementary-lower middle schoolers. We are planning on meeting IN PERSON on Sundays from 3-4pm. You can attend youth group AND/OR Fuel, one or both--it's up to you! We're really excited about this opportunity to learn more about our faith and have fun together. Register here: FUEL
*If you are a 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grader interested in volunteering with this group, email Lauren!


BIRD FEEDERS AND SEED NEEDED
COVID-19 has disrupted daily life for all of us, but no group has been more isolated than senior citizens, particularly those in care centers. We are going to collect inexpensive or homemade bird feeders and seed for the care facility in Polk City. Depending on how much we gather together, we could bring some to other centers too. We plan to place the feeders in easily viewed locations for the residents. Bring feeders and seed to church on Sunday before Jester, or drop it off in a tub in front of the church starting next week. We plan to complete this project in November.

WORSHIP HELP
We need youth to volunteer at Sunday service to represent the food drive and spread the news to people coming for worship! Click here to sign up: Worship Help
