MATURA Outreach Center/Food Pantry has a summer need for paper products/toiletries. The following would be very helpful: toothpaste, toilet paper, shampoo, bar soap, laundry soap, paper towels, and Kleenex. The third Sunday of each month is a day when we gather non-perishable food and/or other items for the Matura pantry. But, you may bring items any Sunday. There’s a box next to the top of the stairs in the narthex (at Trinity Creston) where you can place items at any time. Thank you for your support of this outreach for Union County! A note thanking us for recent donations to the Matura Food Pantry is posted on the bulletin board outside the office.

USED PORTALS OF PRAYERS are needed for free distribution at the Iowa State Fair.

The Lutheran Laymen’s League distributes used Portals of Prayers every year at the Iowa State Fair. They are able to give away as many as they can get.

Bring your used Portals of Prayer to Trinity, Creston and place them in the box under the mail boxes.

These will be used to share the Gospel.
