SS Appreciation and Bible Presentation
On 10/1/17 the Christian Education Committee will be hosting a Sunday School Appreciation Breakfast for the entire church. We would like to have this in place of Sunday School this day. Also during the worship service on 10/1/17 we will be presenting our 5th grade youth with a Bible. Invitations will be sent to the youth and family.
LIBRARY LEDGE – Humor
Humor – We all need a little laugh in our life. Quite often it appears around kids, animals or a look at ourselves. With the kids back in school, now would be a good time to sit back & take in a little humor. Rest, God has your back.

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you like to make people smile? We have the place for you! The House of Compassion is seeking a few good people to help staff our Supply Closet. This is a room at HOC where families come monthly to pick out 3 non-food items and a bonus item to take home. The main requirements are to have a pleasant smile, know the alphabet and occasionally to be able to stock and organize the shelves of supplies.
Our current openings are Tuesday mornings 10:00-12:00 and Thursday afternoons 1:00-4:15. There will always be someone else in the office with you. If you have questions or are interested in helping, contact Karen or Maryna at HOC 641-752-5999. Even if you can’t commit to each week, we may be able to match you with someone else, so please call. You’re sure to receive a blessing when you volunteer at HOC!
We are the caregivers.
God is the curegiver.
