Summer Worship Sunday service will be at 10:00am and Wednesday service at 6:30pm. A simple meal will be offered before the Wednesday evening service, starting at 5:45pm and a free will donation will be collected. Nothing says summer quite like a grilled hot dog! Note there will be no service offered on Wednesday night July 4th. Whether you plan on attending Sunday or Wednesday night, for a midweek pick-up, we look forward to worshiping with you this summer. Peace and blessings from the Worship Committee


Special Music Request Music is an integral part of every church service and among our congregation there are many of you that are blessed with this talent. Sunday service for the summer will be held at 10:00am and the Worship Committee would like to have talented people young, old or in between step forth and offer their special gift of music for the service. If you would like to volunteer for one Sunday please call Marsha Bertsch (605) 660-5804 or Lisa Irwin at (605) 760-9467. Thank You.


KYNT Radio Broadcast, June 17th, July 1st, 8th & 22nd are available. The sign-up folder is located on the Hy-Vee table in the Church Lounge. The cost to sponsor a Sunday broadcast is $45.


United Methodist Women There will not be a June UMW meeting, but a social "lunch out" date will be planned later in June for all United Methodist Women.


Summer Coffee Fellowship during the summer will be on Sunday morning before the worship service from 9:15-9:45am. A pot of coffee will be available. There will not be a sign-up sheet for treats or to serve, but if someone wants to bring something to share, they sure can.  Disposable serving products will be used for fast and easy cleanup.


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 UMW will still cover ½ of the early bird cost for one camp per youth (K-12th grade) you are responsible for the balance.


Women of the United Methodist Church! Make plans now to attend Mission U. July 12-15 at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SD. If you've never experienced 'Mission U' make this the year! You can even bring your kids or grandkids to attend the Youth Camp (grades 7–12), or Faithful Servant Children's Camp (grades 3-6). There are brochures in the office with all the details and registration form. Register by June 30th to avoid a late fee.
