Memorial Day Mass
We have morning mass on Monday, May 30th followed by the blessing of the graves at Ankeny Memorial Gardens.
This year the Baccalaureate (also known as the Senior Blessing Service), will be at Prairie Ridge Church, 825 NW 36th Street, on Wednesday, June 1, 7:00 pm. This service is an ecumenical service that invites all seniors and their families from our Ankeny Community Churches and Congregations to worship, celebrate, and challenge our young people who are about to take the next step in their journey as young adults and disciples. Please come celebrate with us and enjoy a beautiful worship service.
Rummage Sale is ComingStart cleaning out your closets! The annual OLIH Rummage Sale (sponsored through our Peace & Justice Committee) will be held on July 21-23. Donations will be accepted the July 17 & 18th during posted hours. Keep on the lookout for more details.
Located on the grounds of the Faith Chapel at 7384 NW 16th St. in Ankeny, Agape Garden is one way our church partners with other local churches to provide fresh produce for area feeding ministries. From spring planting through fall harvesting, a dedicated team of volunteers from the United Methodist church and several other partner churches, such as OLIH, plant, tend and harvest the vegetables and fruits, and then deliver them to various feeding ministries around the metro.
Each year, Agape Garden has grown in size, scope, and methods. In 2010, the garden received Honorable Mention from the World Prize for a community garden effort. In 2015 the garden yielded and donated 21,969 pounds of produce! Area agencies and ministries receiving produce include Bethel Mission – Hope Ministries, DMARC Food Pantry (Ankeny Neveln Center), North Branch Lutheran Church of Hope Ankeny Food Pantry, Trinity United Methodist Church, and the United Methodist congregation’s “Homeless Helps” meals.
For more information, contact our leadership team: Grace Wall (AHS Junior), Ryan Gross (AHS Junior), or Randy Henderson, Director of Youth Ministry for OLIH by emailing email@example.com. Please volunteer by showing up at the garden Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6pm-dusk or Saturdays from 8:30-noon.
