The Big 3

#1) Vacation Bible School—Starts Sunday 7/12/20!
Vacation Bible School begins Sunday at 6:00pm! Families can begin checking in at 5:45pm. Family members are invited to come into the sanctuary to watch the closing at 8:10. Otherwise, please make sure one person comes into the sanctuary at 8:30 to get your child. Children will not be released to a sibling.
For families, please remember to follow safety precautions when attending VBS. If your child has had a fever, cough, shortness of breath, is generally not feeling well or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the last two weeks, please keep your child at home. Please take your child's temperature each day prior to coming. Children whose temperature is above 100.4, should remain at home to help prevent the spread of illness. (No medicine can be given to keep the temperature down.)
Water fountains will not be available, so if you would like to send your child with a water bottle that is fine. Please make sure it is labeled. Masks are not provided, but if you or your child would like to wear one that is fine.
For questions regarding Vacation Bible School, please contact Jenny Boyle at   or 605-929-2455. You may also contact Angie Fluth at   or 605-929-3116. Thank you.
#2) Women’s Ministry Bonfire
Please join us on Thursday, July 30th for an evening of fellowship! We are having a bonfire at the home of Karla Brown (25857 480th Ave, Brandon, SD 57005), starting at 7:00 pm. If the weather is inclement, there is no indoor portion planned. To keep things simple and Covid-19 safe, we will not be sharing treats this year. Feel free to bring a snack/bag dinner and a beverage. Grab your lawn chair, a friend or two, bug spray, and join us!

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” (Rom. 12:10) We have many in our church family who are vulnerable to the novel Coronavirus or cannot risk infection.  If you are sick, please stay home and join our Sunday Morning Worship live stream.  When you come to church, please wash your hands often, cover your cough, and maintain 6’ physical distance between families.  We also encourage you to wear a mask anytime you cannot maintain 6’ physical distancing.

Church Library Hours: Please feel free to visit the church library between services on Sundays. We request to have one family check out books at a time. Please also feel free to visit the library during church office hours from 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday. We recommend calling ahead of time to make sure the library is not being used by another group. There is a basket outside of the library where you may return books. We are always accepting book returns—even from several months back. Thanks!
