Ames, Iowa

Join Us This Sunday!
  worship 9:45
church school 11:00
student supper 6:00


On October 19, we will have a very brief time of worship at 9:45 and then spend the morning in various service projects.  We will gather togather again at noon to report in and share a meal together.

There will be projects both here at the church and offsite for all ages, including putting together hygiene kits for refugees, making fleece blankets for children in need, visiting folks in nursing homes, and providing labor for projects for local agencies.  You can sign up to participate at church (signing up for a particular project will help us purchase needed supplies and plan for lunch, but you do not have to sign up in advance in order to participate!)

We are looking forward to a Great Day on October 19!
