Barrels of Blessings
Let's continue filling our food barrel! Our donations go to the food pantry at Bethany Lutheran
Church. Any donations of non-perishable foods are welcome, but specific items are suggested
for each month.
March: baby food jars, formula, and cereal.
Remember, any type of non-perishable food is welcome throughout the year. It will make us
just as happy to give these items as it will be for them to receive the help. Thank you!

Prayer Shawl Ministry
If you are a knitter, you are invited to become part of a Prayer Shawl Ministry for the benefit of those
on our prayer list and for a mission project. You would be doing this on your own time and at your
convenience. The pattern is very simple, and as shawls are completed, they are blessed by the
pastor and then distributed. For more information, please contact Jo Fenske.
