Did you know that we have started collecting items for the Upper Des Moines Food pantry again? If you’d like to join in these efforts, please bring items at your convenience and leave them in the basket located in the north foyer of the parking lot entry. Some of the items most needed at this time include: macaroni & cheese mixes, pasta, hamburger helper, canned fruits and vegetables and soup. Monetary donations are accepted, too. Make checks payable to: Bethany Lutheran Church. Note “Food Pantry” in the memo. Thank you for supporting this outreach ministry!
