Congregational News and Notes


Welcome to worship on this Lord's Day.  This morning we continue our consideration of the “Five solas” of the Reformation in honor of the 500th anniversary of the nailing of the 95 theses by Martin Luther.  This evening we give consideration to another of the “Stories of Grace in Genesis” as found in Genesis 24.


Pastor Tim anticipates a same day surgery in Sioux Falls on Tuesday morning to remove a nodule (non cancer) from his vocal cord.  He is advised not to speak for three days after the surgery but should be ready by Sunday.  If you need to get hold of him during the week it is best to e-mail or text.   


Sign up today for the upcoming Soup Supper.  We need EVERYONE to help out in this church event.  See signup sheets in the Fellowship Hall.
