Description:

The mission of Matthew 25 Ministry at Faith Lutheran Church is to feed the hungry, help the homeless, and clothe the poor. 

The ministry helps inform the congregation and others about the issues of hunger and opportunities to feed and clothe those in need and encourages individuals to volunteer in areas with the greatest need.

Their volunteer opportunities include: Bringing food for the DMARC Red Barrel, donating clothes for needy children at Crestview Elementary School in Clive, working in the Faith & Grace Garden, preparing and serving meals at the Children and Family Urban Movement Supper Club, making egg casseroles for Salvation Army, joining Faith Stitchers to make hats, prayer shawls, and wash cloths.

Four times a year, Faith Lutheran Church hosts homeless families for a week at the Gathering House as part of the community-wide Family Promise program. Matthew 25 works with volunteers to prepare the Gathering House for their guests, prepare meals, serve as overnight caretakers and when the week is over prepare the Gathering House for its other uses.

How to Help:
