The Thanksgiving Ingathering is a way for Iowa United Methodists
to address hunger problems locally and around the world.
Micah 6:8 says that the Lord requires us
"TO ACT JUSTLY AND TO LOVE MERCY
AND TO WALK HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD.”
When we share from our abundance, we are
acting justly and reflecting our desire to serve God.
