This is an organization that works with persons in need in Cedar Rapids. They have a community garden, meals program, youth activities, etc. We have helped to collect items, serve meals, and provide resources for this United Methodist ministry.
Instead of holding a worship service on these special Sundays, we let our service BE our worship. Our congregation deploys to different mission cites throughout the community in order to be Christ’s hands and feet to a broken and hurting world.
Women at the Well
This is a congregation of the United Methodist church inside the walls of the Iowa Correctional Facility for Women in Mitchellville, Iowa. Each year, we work to collect clothing and toiletry items for the “Stepping Out” clothes closet. We also have begun a deeper relationship and have travelled to worship with them.
Marengo Food Bank
We regularly collect non-perishable food items for the area food bank. Volunteers help deliver our items to the Presbyterian Church and help sort and deliver items in partnership with the food bank volunteer system in our community.
Community Thank You Luncheon
In the spring, we invite local area volunteers and community leaders to join us for lunch so that we can say, ‘Thank you.”
We send mission teams to sites of flooding or storms to help clean up and provide meals. People of all skills are welcome to be a part of this ministry.
