The Big 3

#1) The Next Step
The next step of our Getting Back to Normal Plan is to continue in-person and live stream Sunday morning worship while adding some of our other ministries back into the schedule.
Beginning the first week of June, we will add Wednesday evening adult Bible study and some youth group activities to our calendar. We will also change Tuesday morning prayer meeting and Thursday morning men’s group to in-person-only gatherings. Please see the schedule in the Weekly Outlook in the worship folder.
This does not mean things are back to normal. Covid-19 is still dangerous for those of us who are vulnerable, and we understand others must limit their risk of exposure, so we will be taking added precautions. For activities at our church facility we will continue to emphasize staying home if you are sick, hand washing, and good physical distancing—especially with those who are vulnerable. We look forward to this next step together, so please join us in person or on live stream.
#2) Women’s Ministries Discipleship Opportunities
Summer Book Club: Our book club is reading The Right Kind of Strong by Mary Kassian. We will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday evenings, starting June 1st, from 7-8:30 p.m. We would love to meet in person, but we will assume we will meeting via Zoom! If you don’t have Amazon or need assistance ordering your book, please feel free to contact Mary Lynne at . Please read the intro and Chapter 1 for June 1st! 
#3) Work Day at Our Church Facility
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, June 20 and join us for fellowship as we work together and live as a family of disciples. We will have a variety of indoor and outdoor projects. We plan to begin at 8:00 a.m. Contact Wayne Kersklake at 605-351-0370 or the church office at 605-338-2077 to sign up.
