Members of the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo) from Ponoka joined with members from Red Deer, Lacombe and Rocky Mountain Oct. 27 to donate about 130 boxes of non-perishable items to Mustard Seed food bank in Red Deer. The church has a growing congregation in Ponoka of about 40 people.

Last year, the church did a spring clean up drive in Ponoka in coordination with the town.
