Our own Luann Menke, will be a blessing to you.

Operation Christmas Child

We are kicking things off starting today with Operation Christmas Child! There are three ways to participate:
  1. Pack a shoebox. Boxes and instructions will be provided at the display by the front door in the near future.
  1. Sponsor a shoebox. By putting a $9.00 check (per box shipping cost) payable to Samaritan's Purse in the container provided on the display table. Feel free to also visit the Samaritan's Purse website for instructions about sponsoring a virtual shoe box.
  1. Pray. When the shoeboxes are delivered, Samaritan’s Purse coordinates with the local congregations and pastors to provide Bible lessons along with the shoebox gifts. Graduates of these classes receive Bibles in their own   language. Wednesday, November 18th is the deadline to return filled shoeboxes here to FEFC so we can meet collection deadlines.

Our church is participating in 40 Days for Life, a 40-day long prayer vigil taking place in front of Sioux Falls Planned Parenthood. This event is going on now until November 11th. You may pray for one hour between 7am and 7pm. Please feel free to talk to Ron Krahn or visit and sign up on the website calendar. 6511 W 41st St.
