Noisy Offering

You can “change” lives!

Each Sunday, our youth collect your loose change to buy snack bars for the Banfield Elementary Backpack Program, which works to ensure hungry children have access to food on weekends.

Food Shelf Collection

December - Personal Care/Hygiene Items

For the Austin, MN Salvation Army Food Shelf.

On any Sunday morning bring your donation item/s into the sanctuary. During the offering time, our youth will collect and place the items in front of the altar - creating a visible reminder of God using the table to serve those in need.

Ronald McDonald House

Donate "wish list" items here!

We collect and donate items to the Rochester, MN Ronald McDonald House. The donated items make the stay of families easier while their children are at the Mayo Clinic. Print the wish list. To make a donation, place your purchase on the hutch in the lobby and we'll get them to Rochester!

Greeters, Readers, Fellowship Hosts

Pam Terry and Bette Rugg coordinate the volunteers who fill these roles every Sunday before, during and after worship services. They will answer questions, explain the functions and help you sign-up for a date that fits your schedule. The sign-up sheet is outside the main office.

The first people you meet at the door. Before worship, these friendly, smiling faces will shake your hand and welcome you to our church. They can also answer questions and give directions if you need.


During worship, you read, aloud, the scripture lesson for the day.

Fellowship Hosts
