Protocol Reminder. A reminder that our safety protocols remain in effect (updated October 2021).  We will continue to share each service remotely online via Facebook and YouTube, as well as our audio calling-service for those who are not comfortable joining us in-person or not comfortable with these protocols.

150 Year Remembrance. On September 12, 2021, Homecoming Sunday, our congregation celebrated the end of our 150th year. Read A Little Church on the Prairie, Volume 3, a history of the last 25 years of this church.

Connection and Growth

Here are regular opportunities for connection and growth through our church family:

Wednesdays, 6:00 to 7:00 pm: Loaves and Fishes (LAF) Children’s Program
This fall our LAF (Loaves and Fishes; children and family education) and BC (Before Confirmation; 6th-7th grades) programs will be restarting on Wednesday evenings (first Wednesday will be September 1).  In an effort to ease back into a face-to-face format, we will not be doing after-school pick-up or dinner.  Instead, we are inviting all children, parents, and 6/7th graders, to meet in the sanctuary on Wednesday from 6:00-7:00 pm.  Masks are welcome but not required.  We will share songs, stories, rituals, and activities. Please register your child(ren) for these programs by emailing ( or calling (605.624.3120) the church office.  What a joy to be together again!!
