Necessities for Neighbors This Sunday

Necessities for NeighborsThis Sunday, August 3, is the first Sunday of the month, which makes it a Necessities for Neighbors Sunday, when we distribute to families items that they are not able to buy with food stamps. The distribution will be from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Peace members and members of other congregations have been very generous with donations for this month’s distribution, which creates an odd problem: We have a critical need for plastic bags, the sort your Hy-Vee or Target purchases are bagged in. Bring as many as you can spare to church this weekend.

If you’ve been wanting to get involved with Necessities for Neighbors, we always like to have new volunteers. You may sign up at worship this weekend to serve on Sunday afternoon, or contact the church office (361-3683); Pastor Betsy Hoium (; or Jackie Bailey ( to serve at future distributions.

Thank you for your generosity toward your neighbors in need!
