Wings of Refuge

    YOU ARE INVITED! THIS SATURDAY to the Underwood Barn located at 5525 N. Dayton Ave, Ames, where we will have a fall gathering to learn about Wings of Refuge* and the problems surrounding human trafficking in Iowa.

    Join us from 6pm-7pm for delicious dessert and beverages: Assorted Harvest Cheesecakes, Country Slab Apple Pie, donut holes, Spiced Apple Cider, and great coffee. We may even have a campfire outside the barn, weather permitting. At 7pm, Joy Fopma, from Wings of Refuge, will the be the guest speaker for the evening.

    *Sex trafficking? In Iowa? Really? Ugh! The reality is that sex trafficking is the fastest growing industry in the world. Wings of Refuge is a safe house in Iowa dedicated to transforming the lives of survivors of human trafficking through the love of Jesus Christ.

Successful Fall Youth Retreat

    The Fabulous Fall ROCK Retreat was held last weekend at the historic, legendary, and always beautiful Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp in Story City! Nearly 20 youth, ROCK graduates, and Adults took part in all or parts of the weekend.  The youth were housed in the Aaron/Zion cabins.  Activities included canoeing, hiking, inside and outside games, devotions, planning for next year, and (of course) campfires at Camp Fire Hill. Make plans to attend next fall’s retreat.
