VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL UPDATE:
After much consideration, the activities director at Homestead and I have decided to cancel VBS for June 9-12 with the Homestead residents.  The health and well being of all involved is too important to take the risk.  We will have the VBS program in June 2021.       Gayle Bortz

CHARITON FOOD PANTRY OPTION:
If you wish to donate “money” to the food pantry instead of “purchasing items”, you may write your check out to “ICC Ministry Center” and mail to: ICC Ministry Center, P.O. Box 464, Chariton, IA  50049.

OUR SERMONS ARE NOW RADIO BROADCAST!!

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT
WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU!
We know that some of you are currently reluctant to leave your home for the next few weeks.   So, if you find yourself in need of groceries or prescription medications, we would be honored to help, by shopping for you and delivering your order to your home or apartment.  We have a list of people ready and willing to help you.  Please call the church office (641-774-4875) and give Wendy your order, and we’ll shop and deliver your order to you.
The church office is open Monday – Thursday from 8 am – 3 pm.


IT IS ALMOST TIME TO BEGIN MOWING THE CHURCH LAWN!!
If you would like to volunteer to mow the church lawn at First Lutheran please call Wendy and she will put you on the schedule (641-774-4875).  This ministry would  involve mowing and trimming the area immediately surrounding the church building (inside the circle driveway) and sweeping off the sidewalks.

If you have time, perhaps you would like to come to the church and clean up the limbs and other trash that has accumulated over the winter on the church lawn.  You could do this at your convenience.

Please consider helping with these important ministries.

The Week of March 29 at CTS & FLC

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:  There will not be any services at First Lutheran in Chariton or Christ the Servant Lutheran Ministry in Corydon until Easter Sunday.  At this time, we are planning on having services on Easter Sunday at both locations.

On Easter Sunday, we will strive to maintain our distance from each other – encouraging you to leave some space between you and others.  We will spread out into the Narthex at both churches and also into the Fireside Room in Chariton. If you are feeling ill, we would encourage you to please stay home.

In addition, there will NOT be Easter breakfast at either location.
