New Opportunity: We are thinking of starting a monthly meals group. We would be making 8-10
different recipes and freezing them. These are great for making life easier for your families and for
giving away for those in need. Please sign up in the narthex if you are interested. If there is not enough interest we will not do it. We have the first 10 recipes picked out. We will know the cost per person once we get an idea of how many are interested. If you have any questions, contact Kristin Groen 605-214-1747. There is a sign up sheet in the entryway.

Vacation Bible School: Kids! How would you like to spend a week with other kids learning about God and how much he loves you? This year’s Bible stories and Bible verses remind us that God made each of us for a reason; God is for us; God is always with us; God will Always love us! What amazing promises that we can build our lives on. VBS is only three weeks away and registrations are due to your directors TODAY! See you soon at the Maker’s Fun Factory! Helper/Leader sign-up sheets and registration forms are available at the display in the entryway to the fellowship hall. Many helpers are needed in leading kids from station to station and in the nursery. Sixth grade thru adult: 1 day or all 5 days. Any help is appreciated.
