Compassion Childcare

As a church, we have a tradition of taking a special Christmas Eve offering to support Compassion Childcare. Compassion exists to strengthen working poor families. They have a two-prong approach to preaching and teaching the Gospel. First, to the children each day through worship and bible reading and secondly, to the parents through resource classes, housing programs, and meals. Compassion has expanded a preschool inside of our church walls which provides Christian teaching daily to preschoolers who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Please consider giving on Christmas Eve to this special organization.

Bulletin Board

Please see the bulletin board across from the library for pictures of the children’s Christmas program. The bulletin board near the nursery shows Christmas shoe boxes being collected and loaded in Sioux Falls for delivery around the world.
