Feeding our neighbors
Fridays, 10 a.m-Noon
Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church has joined with Gethsemane Lutheran Church and Second Harvest Heartland to provide pre-packaged food boxes to our neighbors in need, no questions asked. The boxes are meant to feed a family of four for up to three days.
Pick-up Details: To pick up a box, drive to the back of the church (on 31st Ave.). To maintain physical distancing, please stay in your car. A volunteer will put the food box in your trunk or back seat. If you are walking or biking, our volunteer will leave the food for you to pick up. Please maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from our volunteers and other people.
Our pastor, John Strommen, will be on hand to pray with families if they wish.
