It’s that time of year when we celebrate and give thanks for family, friends and all that we have been blessed with throughout the year. It is also the time when Faith Baptist Church holds its annual Harvest Dinner, a festivity that has taken place since the church was founded nearly 50 years ago.
“This is one of our most attended events of the year,” says Pastor Darwin Miller.
The events start a 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, with a family-style feast provided by the church. They always ask for a special, mission-based offering to support other activities and programs with the church and conclude the night with a special service of testimony to the Thanksgiving season. All are welcome to join the more than 100 people who attend the evening annually. For more information, contact the church at (515) 573-3517, or stop by at 28 N. 10th St.
St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church is holding its traditional Cookie Walk and Bake Sale Dec. 7 – 9.

New Covenant Christian Church is continuing its work on a Habitat for Humanity project at 4th Ave. N., a project that has been ongoing since last summer.
“We began working on this specific house since the very beginning after the basement cement was poured,” says Pastor Doug Rushton. “We have helped put the flooring in, put the walls up and took part in a couple more projects throughout the winter. We are just about finished with the siding and ready to start on the inside with drywall and painting.”
For each Saturday that the project has taken place, about 10 volunteers have shown up to help, and everyone is welcome. New Covenant Christian Church has been partnering with Habitat for Humanity for more 10 years.
“If they’ve got work to do, we want to be helping them do it,” says Rushton.Spread the Word
