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 very 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  tream.
#2) Vacation Bible School
VBS is quickly approaching and we need your help to make it a success! Check your calendar to see if you can make any of these dates work. We look forward to seeing you if you are able to help!  It takes a village to make this work, and we have a great one! For questions regarding VBS, please contact Jenny Boyle at or 605-929-2455. You may also contact Angie Fluth at or 605-929-3116.
VBS Worknights - Come help us create decorations for our week of VBS.  There will be painting, constructing, tracing, gluing, etc.  Don't be scared!  Even if you are not artistic, but are willing to work and follow directions we will definitely take your help!
     June 15th     10am-3pm and 6pm-9pm
     June 16th     10am-3pm and 6pm-9pm
     June 17th     10am-3pm and 6pm-9pm
VBS Training - All people involved with Vacation Bible School will be asked to attend or watch the training.  This will help us get the vision for VBS and understand how it is set up.  We will also go over roles for crew leaders, station leaders and be able to answer any questions you may have.  We are so thankful for all the volunteers and are praying for the impact we can have on children's lives throughout this week!
     Thursday, June 25th from 7-8pm  
    **This training will be offered in person or through a Zoom Link.  If you are unable to attend we will record the training and send it out in an email so you are able to watch it. 
VBS Decorating Days - We need all hands on deck to help us transform our church into a Rocky Railway station.  Please come help us decorate and get our church ready for kids to come and experience how Jesus' Power Pulls Us Through.
