THERE WILL NOT BE DRIVE-THRU COMMUNION THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 19 or SUNDAY, APRIL 26. The word on the street is that it was very well received in Chariton, Corydon, and even beyond!! We thank Pastor Dick for making this possible. If social distancing continues into May, we will plan the next drive-thru communion for Sunday, May 3.
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.
