It is right to give our thanks and praise.

    And so, with your creatures on earth and all the heavenly chorus,

    we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of our glory.

Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one

who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

     And so, in remembrance of your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

- 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!

- Veterans Recognition First United Methodist church will be honoring our veterans on Sunday, November 13th at both services. The Worship Committee will be putting up the Wall of Honor outside the sanctuary. If you are a veteran and have not provided the committee with a picture for the wall, please bring a picture to the church office by November 9th. The picture will be photocopied and returned to you. Please put you name on the back of the picture to ensure that it is returned to the correct person. The photo does not need to be of you in your uniform.

MERCY MEALS

Community Pack for Haiti

Saturday, November 19

In early October, Hurricane Matthew devastated parts of Haiti, killing hundreds and leaving thousands homeless with no food and clean water. In response to this great need, Orphan Grain Train of Norfolk has been sending meals and medical supplies to help. They are in need of more meals and in response, Mercy Meals of Yankton will be hosting a community packing event on Saturday, November 19.

We will pack in 4 shifts at 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Packing will be at the Mercy Meals location at Calvary Baptist Church, 2407 Broadway.

To make sure we have space for you, your family, or a group you would      like      to      put      together,      please      e-mail      us    at

 info@mercymealsyankton.org or call 605-260-0293 to let us know what shift you would like to participate in.

Freewill offerings will be accepted to help defer some of the cost for the shipping and dry product that will be packed.
