Easter Sunday Morning Worship and Fellowship Online (April 12): 
We will NOT be meeting in person again this week.  However, that doesn’t mean we can’t worship and connect together online.  Participate in worship in the following ways:  

  • A Sunday Devotion – We will keep sending out our Sunday order of worship and a devotional video for personal/family worship.  
  • Zoom Worship & Reflection – Our staff is working together to provide a time for online social interaction via the program Zoom on Sunday morning.  Zoom allows people to see and visit together in groups.  We will be sending out more information on Friday about how we are planning to join together on Sunday for a time of fellowship and prayer online.

Future Cancelations – For the foreseeable future, we will not gather due to COVID-19.  However, we will be sure to let you know as soon as we are able to physically meet again.

HelpLineCenter 211/Feeding South Dakota: The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken all of us. But for those who face food insecurity, losing a paycheck due to work disruption or your child missing nutritious meals due to school being closed can be a personal disaster.  Help your neighbors in need by packing emergency food boxes at Feeding South Dakota that will help feed families who need a little extra food assistance. Volunteers will pack fresh and nonperishable food items in bags and/or boxes in assembly-line fashion. This activity takes place at distribution centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre, and Rapid City and is capped at 20 volunteers per shift to limit the numbers of people in the building at one time.  Visit this page for more information and to sign-up:
