FF mowing club

The Fergus Falls Mowing Club exists to serve our community by beautifying yards in need, for families in need. Also, we strive to mentor young people in the joys of serving others!

Our club meets once or twice a week to mow, rake, bag, and trim yards for people who are unable to care for their yard right now. We are not a mowing service; rather, we hope to give a homeowner a "shot in the arm" by removing a stress at a stressful time in their life. We'll even give them a brand new mower if that's what's keeping them from caring for their yard.

Volunteers help as often, or as little, as they want. Sign up at today!

local foster care needs

Donate to Kids in Crisis

In emergency situations children may be removed from homes without extra diapers, or shoes on their feet. Donate to the County's fund for children in crisis. They will accept donations such as pajamas, diapers, socks, etc. but it's easier for a social worker to go out and purchase things for the specific child in need if they have the funds.  Donations can be dropped off at the Human Services Dept. at 530 W. Fir Ave., Fergus Falls.

Pray About Fostering

There is an urgent demand for foster homes in Ottertail County. Upcoming informational sessions are on June 20th from 5-6 pm and  June 21th from 12-1 pm at the Community Ed building (hockey arena entrance) to go over facts and myths of foster care and adoption and answer any questions you may have. The meetings are a no-pressure, no-commitment ordeal, they're purely informational so people can make the best decision for their family.

the generation connection

On this faith journey we need each other, young and old. 

1. If you have living elders give them a call or go on an ice cream or coffee date. Ask them about their spiritual journey. What is their relationship with God like? What has grown their faith the most over the years? 

2. If you don't have living elders in your life call one of the local nursing homes and ask them how you can volunteer to visit with a resident that doesn't have family or many visitors. 

3. If you are an elder in someone's life make time for an intentional faith-centered conversation with someone from a younger generation. It's the best investment you can make!

4. On a Sunday morning at the Naz ask someone from a different generation to get ice cream (or coffee or tea) with you. Ask them lots of questions! (For some question inspiration click HERE.) Leave by thanking them for something specific that you appreciate about them or for what they shared with you.
