Ronald McDonald House Service Project - Habitat for Humanity Construction

Our church is a regular contributor to the United Church of Christ's Our Church's Wider Mission program.  We also have special collections each month for different local and national mission projects.  We also administer the Mahana Scholarship Trust, which has given over a million dollars to help area students with their college education.

On the first Sunday of each month we encourage members to bring non-perishable food or cash donations for the Kossuth County Food Pantry.

Members of our church participate in the annual CROP Walk to fight hunger each fall.  We also deliver lunches to shut-ins as part of the area Meals on Wheels program.

For the past several years our church has helped a Native American family on the Omaha Reservation each Christmas.  The family thanked us with a beautiful handmade quilt that hangs in our church parlor.

Our church actively participates in the Kossuth County Ministerial Association, where local churches work together to help those in need in our community.
