Calendar tab at the top of this page.


It is soon that time of year when we celebrate the birth of our Savior.  What a great time to tell others about Him and what he has done for us!!  You can be a part of this mission by packing a OCC Shoebox.

You can pick up your OCC Shoebox here at church (or we can deliver them to you), fill it with fun items and return your box(es) to church so they can be shipped all over the world.  You can even track your box and see where it ends up.  When your box of goodies arrives at its destination local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed. It all begins with you!!


It all starts on October 4th and the collection deadline is November 16th.  Boxes will be available at church or you may request delivery of your box(es) to your doorstep by contacting the church office (515-275-4015) and requesting a delivery.  Personal shoppers are available, just give them a list and they will take care of the shopping for you. 

You can also fill a box online,

Let’s all do our part to bring another child to know Christ as his/her Savior.

Bible Study w/ Evelyn

SEEKERS - Seekers will begin a new study on September 10.  It's easy to wander away from God. Hectic schedules and the quest for success often mean that time with God gets neglected. But if we slow down long enough to listen, these three minor prophets--Jonah, Joel, and Amos--can have a major impact on the quality of our lives.   A great opportunity to spend time in discussion, study and fellowship.  We meet in the church library and welcome new participants at any time

Wednesday Morning Men's 

Bible Study

A good group of men have been meeting in the CUMC Courtyard on Wednesday mornings at 5:30 am.  They are studying 52 men in the Bible and are engaging in wonderful Bible related conversations. 

All men are welcome!!

We look forward to seeing every one of you very soon!!

Sticky cobwebs, plastic spiders, battery operated tea lights, AA batteries,

Hot Cocoa, jewel stickers, cotton balls, cardboard tube from gift wrap, crescent rolls, celery, raisins, and apples.

Guidelines for CUMC Children and Youth Activities

*Please bring a mask with you to Sunday School and youth group.   I am leaving it up to the discretion of the teacher whether or not they want you to wear a mask. 

This may change as we go along.

*Please remember to social distance.  We will do our best to have fun while remaining safe.

*If you are not feeling well, please stay home. 

*We will have hand sanitizer available and we will use it often. 

*We will sanitize in and out of rooms. 

*We will be cleaning the tables as often as we can.


We will accommodate whatever parents wish.   

If you feel your child cannot come unless we wear masks, we can change our guidelines.



The mission group had a wonderful time at Red Bird Mission in Kentucky!  We built a ramp and stoop of one homeowner and added spindles to a deck that had been completed by a large group just before the shut down.  We were blessed to have Tim as are crew leader again and the only other group that was there was from Hueytown, Alabama, who were also there last year.  It was certainly a different experience with only two groups and just 15 work camp volunteers.  We were able to visit with the other group and share just the same.  It is our hope that our church will continue to support this wonderful mission.  They have faced many hurdles this year yet are still finding new ways to serve the area, including adding Vocational classes to their high school.  From Pastor Buck, Chrys Velky, Freda Perdue, Sandy Freisen and Todd and Nancy Leemkuil, we say thank you for helping us to serve this wonderful mission. 


 Thank you to all that provided items for Hygiene Kits and School Supply Kits. We were able to assemble 20 of each kit. A great donation from our congregation. Excess items that could be added to Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes were shared with the congregation for that purpose. Items not able to be added to shoeboxes were donated to Beacon of Hope men’s shelter in Fort Dodge. The Mission Committee Greatly appreciates your support.
