- Turkey Supper - One of our important outreach ministries is our annual Turkey Supper held in February.  The community looks forward to this event and it brings in people who might not otherwise come through our doors.  In addition to being a community event, the proceeds are donated to causes such as United Methodist Pastor Ron Olson & family from Bowman, ND who were injured in a car accident in December 2013 leaving their daughter paralyzed.  Our previous coordinators have decided to help with other activities so we are in need of someone(s) to coordinate this ministry.  This is a great opportunity for two friends or a couple who have been thinking about how they might be in service together.  Does coordinating the Turkey Supper sound like something you would be interested in?  Want to learn more?  Please contact Jeff May, Chairman of the Finance Committee.

 

- Habitat for Humanity Please help Habitat for Humanity share the word of getting involved during Make A Difference Week.

You can make a difference in the life of a family and our community by helping Habitat for Humanity of Yankton County make minor repairs, paint and do some light yard clean-up for two families in need of a little help.  October 24 and 25 have been designated as Habitat’s Make a Difference Day volunteer days.  We will plan to work from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. or later on both days.  To get involved with this rewarding experience and to help restore a renewed sense of pride in homeownership for these families, call Julie at 260-4224.

Thank you for helping Habitat spread the word of our Christian housing ministry!
