Pop Cans Reminder
REMINDER: Pop cans are still collected in the bin behind the church (just around the corner) to benefit our Building Fund. You can also drop off donations at the Pella Bottle & Can Redemption Center located at 207 South Street in Pella and just ask them to donate the money to St. Mary’s. Every dollar gets us a step closer to paying off our mortgage.
For Your Convenience
For your convenience, Automatic Withdrawal is available in lieu of your weekly envelopes. If you are interested, please contact Jon Miller in the Church Office. Thank You!
