The Monroe City First Church of God is out and about in Monroe City today helping residents around their houses. This is the sixth year for this event and gets better every year. “Rather than to just go and sit in church, we are going to go and serve in the community,” said Pastor Mark Nielson.
The free lunch is going on from 12-1PM today at the church and this year they added free delivery to your home if you cannot make it up to the church. You have a choice of burgers or hot dogs, chips, and cookies.
You will see many members of the church around town doing small things to help out like mowing lawns, weed eating, trimming trees, or even cleaning out gutters.
Free Health Screenings are also going on during the day at the Blue Jeans Center. These tests include: Blood Glucose, Lipid Profile, GFRs and PSA Blood Screens.
The dumpsters located at Speedy Pete’s, across from the post office and at the Blue Jeans Center are still there for all of the other things you want to get rid of but remember electronic items are not to be thrown inside the dumpsters.
