Children’s Christmas Program

The Children’s Christmas Program is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 11th. This program is for children who are in preschool through 5th grade. Rehearsals will be each Sunday evening from 6-7pm through December 4th. Please make every effort to have your child/children at these practices. We have a lot of music to learn in a short time! If you have questions or concerns, please call me, Sue Norberg, at 605-595-5660.

 Operation Christmas Child

Thank you to everyone who responded to the filler item collection. Your generosity has inspired us to do more. We will be having a shoebox packing party with the youth group. 

We are collecting for boys and girls ages 10-14:

-T-shirts (youth L/XL or adult S/M)

- socks, hats and gloves 
- small stuffed animals 

- small toys and games 

- drinking glasses 

- sewing kits and tools 

These are just suggestions, anything you want to donate is appreciated! All extra filler items will be shipped to the processing center. 

 Awana store

The annual AWANA store is coming up the first couple weeks of December!   If you would like to donate gently used or new items that would make great gift ideas for clubbers to give to their family members during this time, please let us know.  We are now starting to collect and organize for this fun night!  Thank you!

 Musicians needed

We're looking for musicians to play in the postlude ensemble after the Christmas program. Practices will start Sunday November 6 from 5-6 in the music room, #115. Please see Pam Fitch if you're interested.

 Women's Ministries New Event - Mugs & Muffins

Saturday Morning, October 29th, at 10:00. You bring the mug, and we will have coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and muffins. Titus 2 paints a picture of the flow of spiritual wisdom and the testimony of God's work in our lives passed from one generation to the next. Don't miss this opportunity to get to know the women of our congregation better.    Your RSVP is helpful; respond to Mary Lynne at

 College Care Packages

As a church, we plan to send out care packages to all of our college-age students who are away. So, if you do indeed have children away at college, could you please make sure we have their current mailing address?  We hope to have the packages sent out soon.

 Nomination Review Committee

Under our Church bylaws, we ask members each year for suggestions for new Elders, as well as open Deacon positions, which this year may include the Trustee Deacon and Missions Deacon. If you would like to suggest someone for consideration, please contact a member of the nominating committee by Sunday, October 30th. Nominating committee members are: Pastor Randy Anderson,  Lisa Soundy, Jean Bender, John Massa, Jeff Burch, Jared Fluth, and Scott Anderson.
