Five Become Certified Hunger Action Congregations

Five Presbytery of Des Moines congregations have joined the faithful ranks of churches around the country that respond with compassionate action to end hunger in a country and world that have the potential to feed everyone.

Those recognized as Covenant and Certified Hunger Action Congregations are

  • Dallas Center, First Presbyterian Church
  • Des Moines, Central Presbyterian Church
  • Indianola, Trinity United Presbyterian Church
  • Newton, First Presbyterian Church
  • Oskaloosa, First Presbyterian Church

Through local hunger ministry commitments, and now as recognized PC(USA) Hunger Action Congregations, these congregations march side by side with other Presbyterians committed to alleviating hunger and to addressing the prejudices, practices, and policies that undergird a system that perpetuates hunger and poverty in even this rich country, the United States. We pray God uses this network of Hunger Action Congregations to share best practices, to communicate challenges and celebrations, and to multiply the effect each of us can have in our own neighborhoods to a much broader impact.

We celebrate them now, and more formally recognize the Presbytery’s Covenant congregation along with the growing number of Hunger Action Congregations around the country on World Food Day (October 16) during the Churches Week of Action on Food.

Together, let us continue to reach out to those who hunger in our own communities, including those who may be sitting near us in our own congregations, and may we respond to larger national and global hunger concerns as well.

 

 *The Presbytery’s Hunger Action Advocate, Nancy Lister-Settle, will help any congregation review your hunger-related ministries and apply for next year’s Hunger Action Congregation recognition!
