#OneHomestead 10am Worship

 
Nursery is available if desired. Sunday school is also during the service for pre-k through 4th grade.
Our 2019 pledge cards are out! 

You should receive a letter in your mailbox or inbox with some encouraging information on how 2018 has been impactful for our church and our community.

You can also read the letter
here and fill out an online pledge card here.

Extra pledge cards and auto-withdrawal authorization forms can be found on the front desk as well! We ask that you please return them by 1/25.

Thanks!
Our Middle School Youth Group meets again on Sunday 1/27 after the service!
Need something to do while the kids are in youth group? Bring a crafty project to work on! We can knit, sew, and crochet together!

***Don't have a kid in youth group, but still want to join in and be crafty with us? No problem! Just bring your crafts and hang out with us after church on 1/27. We'd be delighted to have you!
Come hungry to church on February 10th! Koinonia Circle is proud to host a pancake breakfast benefiting our brothers and sisters in Guatemala for Se Luz Ministries. This ministry was started by our very own Kali Pliego, and though she has stepped down as executive director, Se Luz continues to do ministry in Guatemala and we are proud to support their cause. There will be a freewill donation to eat pancakes, as well as a silent auction. If you're interested in donating items for the silent auction, you can bring items as early as Sunday 1/27. Reach out to Scott Hargesheimer with any questions!
We sent TWENTY volunteers to Feed My Starving Children on 1/19 - our biggest group yet! This is such a great opportunity for families to volunteer together. Kids ages 5+ are able to help pack meals, and there is a low-mobility job available as well.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 30 - these are our next two dates up to FMSC! Our packing time is 11:30a-1:30p, so we will meet at 10am and carpool together. We packed over 57,000 meals on our last trip - which is LIFE CHANGING to the kids that receive it. We hope you'll come with us in March!
We absolutely love how Hy-Vee supports our local schools. In the spring of the 2017-2018 school year, we collected Hy-Vee receipts and turned them in to Gibbs Elementary. For every $250 in receipts given, Hy-Vee donated $1 to the school. They ended up donating over $3,000 to our local schools! We are collecting receipts at the front desk for the ENTIRE school year!

**Note: this is also good for gas receipts from Hy-Vee gas stations.

Reminder: Text giving is quick and easy! The first time you send in a text offering, you will be sent a link to register your card information. Every time you text give after that, your card information is remembered!
