September Mission of the Month Has Two Focuses: Women at the Well & Ingathering Hygiene Kits
Women at the Well is a UM congregation located within the walls of the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville, IA. Women gather together to share the teachings of Jesus Christ, and to experience the life-transforming spirit of God. Ankeny First has long been a partner with Women at the Well, which means that we have promised to support them financially as well as through our prayers. Our gifts will be a blessing and an encouragement to many. Please find a Mission of the Month offering envelope and the Welcome Center, or write "Women at the Well" in your check memo.
Ingathering Hygiene Kits—These kits help disaster victims reclaim their dignity and self-respect. When people can maintain personal hygiene, their overall health improves. Please find yellow supply lists with instructions at the Welcome Center, and return items or complete kits to the labeled bins by the end of September. The money for shipping can be returned to the church office.
