Church-wide October Collection

Bring donations to the wooden box inside the main doors anytime the church is open.

Donate personal care package items known as Blessing Bags (personal care items, food, and toiletries) for our homeless neighbors in Dakota County (donated through Matrix), or layettes (a set of clothing, linens, and sometimes toiletries for a newborn child) to send abroad through Global Health Ministries). Wondering where these donations are going? See Purposeful Retirement’s Simple Acts of Service event.
