We believe God is calling us to be a church on mission – to be MOBILIZED to alleviate hunger in Eastern Polk County. Check out these great opportunities to join God in what He is doing in our community!
ALTOONA KIDS CAFE
We had a great summer with Kids Cafe! After serving over 4000 meals last summer, Kids Cafe moved to LCC’s Cross Creek building so that there is more space for the educational and enrichment activities! We shared God’s love with the kids through a special VBS experience and many local groups came and served these young people. Praise God for all He is doing through Kids Cafe!
