  • Keep us informed:  Help us keep our database up-to-date by sending us any changes in name, address, email, and phone number.  Thank you!

  • If you have lost a loved one, and would like to have it acknowledged in the bulletin, please call  605-886-6994, or email us at ucc1wtn@midco.net so we can get it listed. 


  • Please don’t forget the reports that are needed for the Annual church meeting, Sunday, January 23, 2022 after the church worship service.

  • Also please consider bringing a dish to pass for a potluck meal to share together. 


  • Please give some thought about being the new Moderator. 

  • The church council is in need of a Moderator and Moderator-Elect. This person should begin the duties as soon as possible, to provide for an easier transition come the annual meeting.    If you are interested and able to take the time to help your church in filling this position, please contact  Amber Nogelmeier and she will help you all the way.


Meals on Wheels report

    December 2021

1st Congregational UCC was responsible for delivering meals five times in 2021: March 8-12, May 17-21, July 26-30, October 4-8, and December 13-17. The meals and delivery routes are prepared by the 55 Plus Center which moved to new facilities in the fall of 2021. 


There are 10 routes and for the last two years Great Western Bank employees have delivered one route all year as a community service. They will not be providing that service in 2022.


We have a dedicated group of church members who deliver meals and I would like to thank Glen Robel, Don and Marlys Moore, Jo Gardner and her friend Curt Kost, Frank Kitterman, Lou Walford and Berdene Boersma, Darla Thompson, and Dan and Cyndy Voight. In addition, Scott Anderson, Sue and Alan Pearson, and Rosanne Anderson have provided backup and delivered meals at short notice. Bob Holborn delivered meals for many years but had to finally stop I think at age 91 or is it 92! A big thank you to this entire group! 

We can always use more people to deliver meals either on a regular basis or as a backup. Anyone who delivers will tell you how rewarding it is to provide this service and it takes so little time and effort. Please consider joining our Meals on Wheels team!
