It is the study of the book of Ruth.  We start at 7:30pm and everyone is invited. We meet in the Upper Room and use the North door. If you have any questions just ask Denise Willman or call at 857-0435.


- United Methodist Women’s Project in an effort to make it more affordable to put together Layette Kits for the Marketplace UMW is asking all members of the church to make note of what it takes to put these kits together and collect individual items which will later be assembled into complete kits. At each UMW meeting baskets will be out to collect items. Church members may give items to UMW members or leave the items at the church office to be added to the collection. Items needed must be new. They are: 6 cloth diapers, 2 shirts or one-piece body suits, 2 baby wash cloths, 2 gowns or sleepers, 2 diaper pins, 1 sweater or open front jacket, 2 receiving blankets (not crib blankets). You are encouraged to watch for sales and help with this project.


- Camp even though the Early Bird deadline is past you can still register for camp. The cost would be at full price.  The church and UWM will still cover ½ of the early bird cost for one camp per youth (K-12th grade) you are responsible for the balance. If you have any questions please talk to Diane Kisch.


- Music Ministry - Lessons For Youth Group if you are gifted with musical talent and would consider teaching lessons, we have members in the youth group who want to learn! It is very exciting to see members of the youth group wanting to learn to play the guitar, bass guitar, piano/keyboard and drums to be able to play with the praise team in the future. If this is something you would be willing to try we would appreciate it. Please contact Jeannie Kasik (605) 760-0043.

The Night Club ladies will be hosting their annual rummage on May 31st. Donations can be stored in the confirmation room on the lower level, south room with door marked.  We will be setting up on the May 30th and can use any volunteers willing to help.  If you have any questions, please contact Denise Willman at 664-2869 or 857-0435.  Thanks
