The Book Club will meet Monday, April 8, at NOON in the UMC Parlor.  They will be discussing Daughters of Dakota Volume 1: A Sampler edited by Sally Roesch Wagner.  The Books may be picked up in the church office.

Come and have a cup of coffee and join in the conversation on Thursday, April 11, from 2-4:00pm.  This group meets the second Thursday of each month in the Fellowship Hall.  Because of the snow last month, the theme for April will be the same as March. So bring your seed and garden catalogs because spring is here!  Everyone is welcome and please bring your friends!

Donations of clean, useful items are welcome April 8-12 for the sale on Saturday, April 13 from 8 to noon. All proceeds are for youth summer missions and camps.

Come join us for some great fun and fellowship on Sunday, April 14, 2019 from 5-7 PM! We will start with some nachos and a couple sides! Then we will spend the rest of the time talking and playing board and card games! You are more than welcome to come empty-handed, or to bring games or food to share! The only thing we need to make this an absolute success is YOU! If you have questions contact Kevin Nakajima at (605) 559-0382 or

It’s that time of year again! Our 10th Annual Spring Sprint fundraiser is coming up in a little over a month. This will be bittersweet for us because we are retiring this fundraiser after this year. It’s been 10 wonderful years, but we want to go out with a BANG!

Spring Sprint – Children First 5K is a 5k run/walk that can be done individually or with the whole family. Children First promotes outdoor activity for our youth and we are incorporating Earth Day. Please find the attachment for recycling ideas by one of our teachers, Miss Brianna. We invite you, your family and friends to join us on April 27, 2019 at 8:00 am in the Children First Parking Lot for a loop route through Lions Park, Brady Park, City Park and back.
