Please hold in prayer our Appalachia Service Project team as they head to Kentucky to work for the upcoming week. The group will be working on various sites doing home repairs for those in need in the Appalachia area. They will work closely with the home owners and their families, reaching out and showing them the love of God for all.

Throughout the week, we ask all to be focused on mission. Kids on a Mission is happening Tuesday through Thursday at Ames First UMC  from 9-noon and is open to ages kindergarten through high school. Check the website for more information. Adults are encouraged to look into local missions and participate in any way possible, showing love and serving any and all of God’s children.
