Euelene Floyd, who turned 97 on Aug. 15, retired from music ministry as the pianist at Enid Maine Church of the Nazarene, 1517 E. Maine, at the church’s service on Aug. 30, ending a music ministry of 84 years.

Floyd said her passion for music started early at home.

Marshalltown, Iowa

(Times-Republican, 14 September 2020) The Marshalltown Church of the Nazarene helped give out 5,000 pounds of food and supplies Saturday. 

Organizations from Des Moines shipped the food and supplies to help Marshalltown residents who lost a portion of their pantry in the Aug. 10 derecho. The derecho left a lot of Marshalltown residents with food insecurity because of the loss of power. Many were without electricity for a week and half.

“We definitely couldn’t do it without the church folks today,” John Witmer, Marshalltown Church of the Nazarene lead pastor said. “We didn’t know what to expect and we’re still thankful that other churches and agencies have been jumping in.”
