Support the Elementary School on Nov. 20, 2020

As you head off for Thanksgiving Break why not fill-up on some yummy food provided by the elementary classrooms. It will hit the spot whether you're just heading home or have plans for alternate destinations. All food will have been prepared with safe food handling practices.

You're Invited to Join the Keene Adventurer Club

The Adventurers program is designed to support parents in assisting children with the challenging task of developing fully as followers of Christ in today's world. The mission of the Adventurer Club ministry is to serve an intercultural community of children from preschool through fourth grade and their parents or guardians and assist Adventurer families in growing as followers of Jesus. The Keene Stars Adventurers Club registration is still open so come and bring your children to our next meeting on November 18th at the Keene church fellowship room or contact the club director at 319-491-2939 for more information. All are invited.

We have listed the lunch menu for the entire month of November. In addition, you are now able to order ahead of time for the entire month. There is a separate lunch order link available for each week of the month. All weekly links are available on the menu at and each individual week will be shared in the newsletter. It is our hope that this will provide an easier way for you to keep track of lunches purchased.

You can edit your order at any time. If you need to make a change to your order, please do it through the confirmation email you receive from your order. This will help us not to double order for your child.
