Blessings Table – Food Pantry

Middle River Friends Church

During this current COV-ID 19 Crisis, Middle River Friends Church is providing and accepting donations of food and personal supplies for any family in the Carlisle School District. Families often have extra needs during times like these and food should not be one of those needs. As a community, we are working together to support one another. We are working in cooperation with CCA, Carlisle Schools, and Warren County Health Department to provide some assistance. We are open from 10:00am – 2:00pm Monday through Thursday at 4057 S 23 Highway, Carlisle, IA 50047 or by appointment at 515-989-3319. Donations are always welcome.

Our mission is:

to exalt Jesus Christ by being fruitful disciple-makers and expressing God’s love by serving all people.

Our Pastors

Pastor Matt and Beth Smith began their ministry in Northeast Ohio 26 years ago. They bring a new and fresh perspective on learning about God and his will for us. We are excited to welcome them as they begin their ministry here.
They have 4 children. Their oldest son is married and living in Fort Wayne, while their daughter attends seminary at Asbury in Kentucky. Their youngest two minister with them and are a great joy to have.
Pastor Matt has a Master’s degree in Transformational Leadership and is continuing his education. Beth has a Master’s degree in Family Ministries.
Matt and his family are a great addition to our new outlook on ourselves, our church and our community. Come and Join us and see what is happening.
