Back Pack Ministry extended through summer
A special thank you to Con Ag Foods for their donations during this past school year of popcorn and pudding. At the end of the school year we were filling bags for approximately 63 youth from 25 families.   Because the need for food does not go away during the summer we are extending the program to run through the summer but it will look a bit different. Families may call the church and make the request to Pastor Trish Underbrg.  Pick-up will be on Tuesdays from 5-6 p.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 708 Locust Street in Odebolt.  Phone 668-4515 for information.
