Let us open our minds and souls to God’s Holy Spirit.

We come to proclaim the words written on our hearts by the Spirit.

Grace Notes  - Music with a Message

WHEN:  Sunday, October 16th at 4:00 pm

WHERE: First United Methodist Church 207 West 11th St

Dan & Julie Aughenbaugh, were formerly from the Freeman area.  They met while they were both vocalists at the Miss South Dakota pageant in 1988, were married 9 months later, and have been singing together ever since! They currently live in Rapid City where Dan is the Worship & Senior Adult Pastor at Open Bible Christian Center. During the tourist season, Dan is also a part of the entertainment at the Fort Hays Chuckwagon, where he adds humor to the show and does a show stopping Elvis routine! After many years working as a Finance Manager, Julie has followed a lifelong desire, and became a realtor with Keller Williams Realty. After singing a variety of music together for over 26 years, Dan and Julie’s focus is now performing music with a message. They were thrilled when their youngest daughter Emily joined them to form their trio “Grace Notes”. Together their voices create the perfect blend. 


- Coat Distribution & Community Resource Fair, Yankton City Hall gym 5-8pm. If you know of kiddos or parents that need coats, come to the coat giveaway next Thursday night.  Systems of Care (Lewis & Clark Behavioral Health) will be there at an information table too!  SOC participated last year and we were amazed at the number and selection of coats and outerwear that was available!  Half of the gym is full of clothing…to be given away.  


- Make a Difference Day the Yankton Lions are having a diaper shower for the Contact Center on October 22nd. Diapers can be dropped off at Carol Becker’s home, 605 East 18th St. 665-4694 or the Observer down on Douglas St. anytime starting today, Sunday, Oct. 9th. The Contact Center provides diapers on the average to 21-25 families per month. Diaper sizes needed are 2, 3, 4 and 5. They do not need anything smaller. Other items needed baby wipes, quilts and blankets. Items not needed at this time: baby food, formula, vitamins and clothing. Ideas: use your Walgreens bonus points, watch the sale ads, and cut coupons. All these help your dollars go farther. In 2015 we collected over 2200 diapers. That is a Great Goal!!


- Sweet Adelines (River City Harmony) will be putting on their annual “show” at the Senior Center, Sunday, October 23rd at 3pm. Everyone is welcome.  A men’s guest quartet will perform also.

Proceeds benefit the Dakota Territorial Museum.


- UMW Meeting The First United Methodist Women of Yankton are joining UMW participants world-wide in two special ceremonies at their next meeting on November 7th.  Founded in 1869 as the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society with only 8 members, and carrying various names throughout the decades, in 1973 “United Methodist Women” became the women’s mission organization of the United Methodist Church.  In 2019 we will celebrate our 150th birthday.  Our remembrance ceremonies in November are: 1.) the World Thanks Offering at which time we devote our financial and spiritual support to the missionary efforts which gave us birth and 2.) the Memorial Service at which time we remember those dear ones who have left their earthly home since our last memorial.  Our meeting begins at 1:30 p.m., devotions will be shared by Jean Droppers and hostesses for the light lunch are Mary Alice Halverson and Anne Withrow.  We would love to see you at this meeting!


- Baby quilts hanging in the lobby above the entrance of the Fellowship Hall were made by the Piecemakers quilting group.


- Bake Sale we will be having a bake sale Sunday, October 30th for Erin Olson, daughter of Tami Nielsen & Kevin Olson. The proceeds will go to help with travel and medical expenses not covered by insurance. Erin’s Story: Erin was diagnosed with a cataract, in her right eye, at 6 days of age. The cataract was removed when Erin was 10 days old. After a few weeks, secondary to the surgery, she developed glaucoma. Surgeries were performed in an attempt to control the eye pressure at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and a year. Tubes and shuts were implanted to keep her eye from further damage, due to the climbing eye pressure. Some years went by and the eye pressure was stabilized with the use of multiple eye medications. At age 10, one of the implanted devises became encapsulated with a cyst. The cyst and device were removed surgically. A few months went by and her cornea began to degrade and a cornea transplant was necessary. The surgery was successful until an outbreak of Herpes Simplex Virus, from the donated cornea, infected her eye. In 2015, one of the drainage devices infiltrated her eye, requiring another surgery to relocate the tube and graft the eye’s surface. Due to the constant pain, to the point of being unable to perform normal daily functions, an enucleation (removal of the eye) was performed September 28, 2016. She is now looking forward to a pain-free future and a beautiful prosthetic eye. In addition to the eye disease, she was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome at age 10 and Myoclonic Epilepsy at age 11; both well controlled with daily medication.
