 We are in need of more volunteers for helping in the nursery at the Evening Service. If we can have about 6 volunteers, you would have a turn in the nursery about once in three months. This is not a huge time commitment. If you are willing to help out in this way, please see Cal Tinklenberg.

Tip Night at Slayton Pizza Ranch, Wednesday, January 25 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  All funds raised go toward the Chandler Youth Group to attend the youth conference Rocky Mountain High in Estes Park, CO this summer.  

Cornerstone Prison Church is asking for donations of yarn. The inmates at the South Dakota State Penitentiary have the opportunity to knit hats for children in need. The prison does not provide the yarn, so we ask churches and individuals to help with this ministry. Thank you for your generosity.

The 2017 Day of Encouragement at Dordt College will be here soon, on Sat., February 4.  It is a day to inspire, encourage, and equip all God's people for ministry.  The day includes fellowship and workshops for every person of the church: students, mothers, deacons, musicians, shepherds, fathers, volunteers, leaders, helpers, worshipers, broken people, and more.  The keynote speaker will be Dr. Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research, a prolific author and trainer of pastors and church planters on six continents.  We are planning on meeting at church at 6:30 a.m. to carpool to the event.  If 10 or more people register together by the early bird deadline of January 24, the per-person price will be reduced to $45. After January 25, rates increase to $65/person.  Please let Pastor Josh know by phone/text at 507-329-1258 or email before the January 24 deadline if you would like to go to this exciting event.
