Community Ministries Supplies Drive | June 29

Community Ministries Supplies Drive

Monday, June 29 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm 
St. Joseph School Parking Lot

During a time when access to our church is limited, we felt we could push donations of different supplies to the Food Shelf, to St. Stephen’s Church in Minneapolis, Love, Inc (Love In the Name of Christ) and our school. This is a great way to engage your children in service and to address the great need in our community resulting from COVID-19 and the civil unrest in Minneapolis.
