Scavenger Hunt Food Drive was a Huge Success

Above is a picture of the food collected during the scavenger hunt food drive today. Thank you to our wonderful church family for their giving hearts! We collected 338 items for a total of 20,975 points.
The amount of points doubled from last year!! 

Collecting food at Doug & Mona's 

Went shopping at Coborn's to use our $250 Thrivent card and another $75 that was donated.
Should have taken a picture of everything in the van.
It was packed and kids had to do quite the yoga moves to get out to eat.

A fun morning spent together!

Reminder: Wear red to church tomorrow for Reformation Sunday

There are cards for our confirmands in the back of the church.

Lexi Burma and Kelby Dickson will be confirmed on Sunday, November 4th during the 11:00 am service. Please join them for this special day. Lexi and Kelby would also like to invite everyone downstairs afterwards for dinner and fellowship. Pork loin sandwiches, salads and cake will be served. Everyone is welcome!!!

The 4th-7th grade Sunday School students will be doing a scavenger hunt food drive again on Saturday, November 10th. We will start by the church around 9:00 am and will work our way south around the country and end up in Huron by noon. The collected items will be delivered to the Salvation Army Food Pantry at 1:00 pm. The youth will have a list of items to earn them scavenger hunt points, but any non-perishable items (please nothing that needs to remain cold...some items are in our vehicle for 3.5 hours) that you donate will be more than appreciated. Please be sure the items are not expired as they cannot give them away if expired and will just be thrown away. Last year, they collected 10,975 scavenger hunt points so they hope to get even more this year. Below is a picture of the tally sheet if you want to see what is worth the most points. If you will not be home, but would like to donate you may leave items at the church or talk to Jodi to make other arrangements. Also, if you know you will not be home please let Jodi know so we do not stop at your house. Thank you in advance for helping us "Can Hunger!"
