We will have local opportunities to serve and meet needs in Mason City and northern Iowa. Some examples of this is Rock the Block, which is a block party every August at Monroe Park. Last August, this event had a budget of $10,000 giving away free food, shirts, and prizes to as many as 1200 people while having inflatables for kids and music for the whole family. We also give away school supplies and back packs each fall to students in need. Provide Thanksgiving meals and then Christmas presents to families in need. There are so many ways we can participate to be the hands and feet of Christ every week in northern Iowa.
We also want to have a global perspective, so we will provide multiple options each year with foreign mission trips. We also financially support a number of missionaries worldwide. Mission is something we are participating in both globally and locally :: glocal
