Flat River Outreach Ministries

 Lowell/Alto/Bowne Center Families benefit from our food items that are donated on the first Sunday of the month. There is a great need for food items in the food pantry. The food pantry can use: fruit, fruit juice, boxed potatoes, tuna fish, pasta, cake mixes, cereal, peanut butter, soup, vegtables, tomatoes, pasta sauce, hamburger helper. In these tough times the shelves are bare. Any donations are appreciated.

Daily Prayer

Holy God, we are like tightrope walkers in the circus of life balancing home and work, play and prayer, friends and solitude. We are one step away from falling yet encouraged by an inner voice, which says, "Trust me." You, God of Life, are present. You steady the wire, beckon us to keep our eyes looking forward, reach out to us on the last step. You God, of Life, are there even when we fall, bouncing us from the net to try again. Holy god, we are like tightrope walkers in the circus of life who know your presence is always with us. Thank you. Amen.



Our address is 11365 64th Street Alto Michigan.
