North Scott Community Feed Our Children
Feed Our Children ministry has been established to provide a free lunch opportunity to our children in the North Scott community.

Lunches are assembled at our church and distributed from 11:30am-12:30pm at our church and these locations: United Methodist Church Eldridge, John Glenn Elementary School Donahue, Hope Lutheran Church Dixon, Zion Lutheran Church Princeton, SONShine Ministries Mt. Joy, Double Diamonds Lot Park View, Neil Armstrong Elementary School Park View, Manor Drive and Lincoln Park View.
Volunteers are needed to prepare lunches at 10:00 am at our church.
Volunteers are needed from 11:15 am-12:30 pm to distribute lunches at our church and sites in Dixon, Long Grove, McCausland, Park View, Mt. Joy and Princeton.
Donations are needed for these items: sliced bread, cheese slices, smooth peanut butter, grape jam (not jelly), potato chips, 100% juice boxes (not orange juice), Oreos, Rice Krispie Treats, Go-Gurts, string cheese, fruit and applesauce cups, sandwich baggies and paper lunch bags.
Prayers are needed for this ministry – for children in need, as well as those who serve. Please share the news of this ministry and let us know of children in need.

Mission Trip Fundraisers
We are so glad to have 21 youth and 4 adults going on the summer mission trip on July 6-13 to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota along with our friends from Grace Lutheran and St. Mark Lutheran in Davenport. Your financial and prayer support is appreciated!
Shares of the Mission Trip – We are sill selling shares of the mission trip for $25 per share. Each share entitles you to a postcard from one of the youth during the trip, and an invitation to the Shareholder Luncheon upon our return where the youth will share stories of the trip.
Best Choice Save-A-Label – we continue to collect UPC symbols from Best Choice products in a box in the Gathering Space. We were recently able to send in labels to receive an additional $60 towards the trip!
