We are having a Diaper Drive for the Pregnancy Center of Central Iowa. Please consider donating diapers (size 3 and up is what they need the most) and baby wipes. They would also appreciate pull ups, diaper bags (new and used are both appreciated), and baby gates. These items are their greatest need right now. If you would like to give a donation of money, please make checks payable to Newton CRC and make note on the check it’s for PCCI and place in the Treasurer’s mailbox. There will be a container under the mailboxes in the foyer to put your donated items in. Please see bulletin board in the foyer for more information about drop off times, etc. The last day for collection will be Sunday, July 10. If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Shawver, Josey Vasquez or Amanda Reynolds.
Newton CRC will once again be hosting a garage sale in the church parking lot for the people of our community.

Please consider us during your spring cleaning. There will be more details to follow, but please contact Maggie with any questions.
