Communion Class/Maunday Thursday Service

First Communion will again be held on Maundy Thursday this year, before the service, for all fifth graders! Since Davenport/Norman offers communion to all ages, and lets each individual family choose when to accept the bread and wine, we just want to make sure some formal education is offered each year to our congregants.  ALL AGES and families are invited to attend this event, but we are asking that (in keeping with the tradition of our church) we at least have the fifth graders and their families attend. Thursday, April 2 at the DAVENPORT Church 5:30-6 pm   PIZZA 
6-6:55 pm   Pastor Steinwand will lead an information session on communion and the Board of Ed will help families make communion bread to be served during the service

9:45 a.m.  - Sunday School at Norman

Youth Group Service Event

Dorothy Day Food Pantry
Monday, March 16
Leaving the Davenport church at 5:15 pm
At the Food Pantry from 6:00-8:15 pm

The area colleges are on spring break this week and they need our help!

We will have food for the kids to grab as we are leaving the church.

For those of you not familiar with the Dorothy Day Food Pantry, the food pantry provides food baskets to low-income families and individuals from both Cass and Clay counties. Food baskets are distributed Monday and Wednesday. Clients can come once per month to obtain a food basket, and each person receives an average of 25 pounds of food which typically lasts for 2-3 days. Everyone must present identification in order to receive a food basket. Since its inception, food pantry utilization has steadily increased. We will be helping these families do their shopping for their food baskets. Upon arrival, we will receive training on what we will be doing. If there is a lull in shoppers, we may be helping restock shelves as well.
