WHAT WE DO

Love God & Love Others

LOCALLY

Awana: Each school year, we host a weekly Wednesday night Awana program for children from kindergarten to sixth grade. Kids from the community learn verses, play games, build friendships, and see how to apply God's Word in their lives. We meet at the church, and dinner is provided for children and volunteers.

Meeting God Where He's at Work: Every person is unique, with a special mix of gifts, experiences, and life challenges. God tugs on our individual hearts to step up and do the work he has planned for us.

 

That looks different for each person, whether it's helping distribute food through programs like Feeding South Dakota, visiting older adults at senior centers, sponsoring children, donating to supply essential food and services, or providing meals to injured or ill neighbors. To get started, spend time in prayer and be alert to God's call to you!

REGIONALLY

Capitol Commission: As a church, we help support the Wipf family (pictured here) as they provide spiritual support for elected officials and leaders in government. Jarvis Wipf currently serves as state minister for South Dakota. You can help by keeping local, state, and national leaders in your prayers.

North American Baptist Conference: We partner with and contribute to NAB's support of churches throughout the state and the continent. Church planting, leadership formation, and missional training all fall under the umbrella of NAB's work with more than 400 member churches in the U.S. and Canada.

Missionaries for Awana: The Nies family facilitates Awana children's programs across South Dakota and other north-central states. We are fully committed to this weekly method of teaching kids about God through study and mentoring, which is why we help sponsor Arlyn and Marcy Nies as missionaries in our region.

 

GLOBALLY

NAB White Cross: We help this international group that gathers and ships medical supplies to hospitals in Cameroon, in western Africa.

International Missions:

  • Dr. Julie Stone serves as a medical missionary in western Africa, continuing her essential work through the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

  • Shan Reed works in ministry development in Japan and has been serving there for 15 years.

  • Randy Schmor equips churches for short-term global missions through NAB Gateway, training for effective cross-cultural ministry. 

  • The Romano family serves in Italy, hosting tent meetings there and in nearby nations to lead people into relationship with Christ.

Hispanics for Christ: This team has been planting Hispanic churches and training pastors in North, Central, and South America since 2004.

Sponsorship: We also sponsor impoverished children in India to provide meals, education and support to break cycles of bondage and cultivate transformation.
