THANK YOU to all who helped achieve closing-out our parking lot offering goal; it’s great to have the project paid off. It was much appreciated. ~~ Grace Consistory

CHAPEL CLEANERS NEEDED: Are you looking for a great opportunity to serve God in missions but stay close to home? Get added to our list for cleaning the chapels on I-90 (located at the rest stops between the Plankinton and White Lake exits on both sides of the highway) during the summer. The outreach of these chapels is astounding—but we need to keep them attractive and maintained so they are an appealing stop for travelers. You will likely be scheduled only once during the summer/fall and you have an entire week to get the job done; cleaning supplies are supplied, and mowing the grass is part of the job (push mower). Get your whole family involved in this mission project! Sign up in the back of church to be added to the list or talk to Kim Zomer.



Mon., May 28: Inspiration Hills Ladies Auxiliary Memorial Day Summer Kick-Off & Auction. The auction items will be available for viewing at 3 pm with the Live Auction beginning at 3:30 pm. A light supper will be available from 4:30-6:00 (freewill donation). Greetings from camp staff will be at 6 pm. There will be musical entertainment by the Klassen Family from Worthington, MN at 6:30pm.

Sun., June 3: Outreach Update--Platte CRC will be hosting a couple whose outreach is supported by many area CRC members, Jason and Lisa, who serve in Central Asia. You are invited to come and hear about their work, lift them up in prayer, and encourage them. Evening worship at 5:30 pm with a presentation and their testimony of God’s grace in their work and a further time of interaction, sharing and fellowship will follow along with refreshments in the fellowship hall.

Sat., June 9: Pie Baking Contest (new event for Corsica Wing-Ding). If baking is your “thing”, you are encouraged to participate by baking a pie and bringing it to the Legion Hall by 10 AM that day for judging. The pies will then be donated to be served at the Dakota Trails Golf Course dinner. For more info. or questions, please contact Barb Groeneweg or Gina Schrank.


RCA Church Plant: Pray for our Missional Community Leaders as we multiply this summer; Favor and Fruit in Personal Fundraising (both of us are over 75% of our goal!!); For God to "send laborers into the harvest" for our expansion of our launch team this summer/fall.

CRC Church Plant: Please pray for God’s guidance as the Church Plant Committee continues conversations with those who desire to provide leadership for the launch of the new church in west SF.

Operation Shoebox: YES, it's that time again! YES, we can help children in need, during the up-coming 2018 Christmas Season and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all who attend the toy distributions. HOW?
