Situated on lush farmland, nestled within and east of the rolling Loess Hills and the storied Missouri River, the Western Iowa Synod is one of 3 ELCA Synods in Iowa and one of 65 ELCA Synods in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
God calls us to “feed the hungry”.
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in - Matthew 25
Everyone!! Church council - ministry teams - women and men – young and old! Just for fun---
1) Weigh yourself, a group, include the dog or a neighbor or two
2) raise/contribute the amount of your total weight, or round up….WAY UP!
** It is not your weight, but a fun way to raise dollars and feed our neighbors.
The money will be equally divided between the 6 conferences in the synod to disperse to local food banks, food pantries, and community meals. You know the needs in your community!
Send checks payable to: Western Iowa Synod, 1614 W. 5th, Ste 2, Storm Lake, IA 50588 & designate "Pay the Weigh" in the memo line. You may also contribute online at https://www.wisynod.org/give.

Working together we can feed hungry people in Western Iowa surpassing the 2020 total of $18,000.
This is a new opportunity to build new relationships with Lutheran Services in Iowa, the Storm Lake community, and to model partnerships between congregations and synod.
It is exciting to look forward to this new chapter of ministry in the synod.
