VBS Save the Dates:

Training - If you are planning to volunteer this year at VBS, please plan to attend a brief training. The training will be held today at 5pm in the youth room. If you are unable to attend physically, we will provide a Zoom link for virtual attenders. We will also record the meeting and send out the link afterward. 
Decorating Days - Decorating days will be on Tuesday, July 13th from 10am-4pm and Wednesday, July 14th 10am-5:30pm. If you have an hour or two, or the whole day, we would love to have you come and help us create decorations for Treasured VBS.
If you have questions, please feel free to call Jenny Boyle at (605) 929-2455 or Angie Fluth at (605) 929-3116.

Meals for Compassion Childcare:

On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, people from our church provide a take-home spaghetti meal for some families with Compassion Childcare. Some of the items can  be purchased; others require some preparation at home. Examples include: cooked spaghetti noodles, cooked hamburger, fruit, veggies, cookies/bars. People sign up each month through email, so you are never obligated to participate if it’s inconvenient for you. The items are collected in the church kitchen. Volunteers compile the items into a take-home bag at the daycare. The assembly time is always less than an hour and we have fun doing it! To be added to the regular team of volunteers, please contact Karla Brown at  or (605)310-6433.
