National and International


---Consider contributing your time or talent towards international development programs.  The Episcopal Relief and Development  (ERD) works with the worldwide Anglican Communion, ecumenical agencies and many local organizations to help people in need or in time of crisis, all over the world.  Also see St. John's Extended Church Family.


---Consider becoming involved in a sponsored exchange with our companion Dioceses, or through Waters of Hope, contribute to technologies for clean water in the developing world.


---As a service to the Episcopal Church Nationally, consider letting your name stand as a delegate to National General Convention.


---Or, as a service to your parish, consider letting your name stand as a delegate to the Diocesan Convention (the annual meeting of the Episcopal Church in Iowa). Don't hesitate to speak with Fr. Al if you are interested in these opportunities to serve your parish, Diocesan, or National faith community.
