  • November Mission of the Month

    OUTREACH

    This month will focus on the hungry in Central Iowa. We are asking for any non-perishable food donations, but DMARC has highlighted the importance of canned meat or peanut butter (proteins), as well as diapers and personal hygiene items; all items that are normally low. Additionally, DMARC can make your monetary donations go a little further than you can at the local grocery store by buying in bulk. Mission of the Month envelopes can be found at the CONNECTs at worship locations, or simply write "November Mission of the Month" in your check memo.
