Volunteers are needed to serve Coffee fellowship. Please sign up on the sheet in Wesley Hall.



UMW meeting Ladies, the coffee will be on and you are invited to the February 5th meeting of UMW (United Methodist Women). We will meet at 1:30pm in the second floor lounge. All women are encouraged to attend. Devotions will be led by Dee Carson and an interesting and informative program will be presented by Mary Alice Halverson and Vivian Van Essen on 'Mission You'. We continue to build our layette and sewing kits and ask that you bring either an infant's onesie or a pair of scissors. As always, a delightful lunch will be served.



Did you know that when we hope for the impossible, it involves more than praying for God’s transcendent power? There are two components to every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. Each of us has been given specific talents and abilities. For a real miracle to take place, God expects us to apply these talents and abilities—acting with God to perform divine work. By examining biblical examples of how to use your God-given gifts for God’s glory, author and Pastor Mike Slaughter helps you discover that you, too, were Made for a Miracle.

We will have two time options for you to choose from for the Lenten study this year. Thursday mornings at 10:30am starting Feb. 15th and Sunday evenings at 6pm starting Feb. 18th. Childcare will be available, Sunday evenings only.

We will “Be Still”, and gather together to hear God’s amazing word for each of us, inspire us, stir us, move us through the words of our speaker Tera Elness. Tera is a wife, mama, coffee addict, bible study leader, and speaker. Much like her friends the Israelites, Tera wandered the desert for nearly 40 years in search of life-giving refreshment.  Upon discovering the oasis of grace, her thirsty heart was filled and dry spirit quenched as she set out on her own personal journey of walking in faith and living her (His) story. Tera strives to share God’s perfect grace with His imperfect girls through speaking events, bible studies, prayer groups, conferences, retreats, and more often, simply over a great cup ‘o joe. Tera lives in Minnesota with her hubby and kiddos. You can check out Tera at or on Facebook at Tera’s online Christian Journey.


Send registration with payment to Diane Pinkelman 904 Park St. Yankton or Jen Heiman 1212 Peyton Ln, Yankton, by February 1st. Any questions please contact Amanda Pinkelman 661-8036.


You can find registration forms on the bulletin board outside the church office.
