4 the Kids SD is a local 501 c 3 non-profit that helps students in Codington, Clark, & Hamlin Counties in South Dakota with school lunch account balances. We deposit funds into individual student lunch accounts or send to school personnel within 24 hours. We pay $25 per child, per school quarter, as needed for Lunch funds. We help pay off past due, year end lunch account balances at area schools as well. We have been helping families for over 3 years now and have been blessed to pay over $7900 in school lunches so far.

NO FINANCIAL QUALIFICATIONS ARE NEEDED for this program. We believe that any family at any time can run into financial struggles and we are here to help.

JAM 2021 Virtual Choir!


We will not be gathering in person this year for Annual Meeting, but we can still celebrate and make music together from afar! Any and all UCC church leaders and congregants in the IA, NE, and SD Conferences are invited to participate in either the Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) 2021 virtual adult choir or virtual youth choir. Please pass this on to the rest of your congregation, we'd love to have as many different voices as possible!


The deadline to sign up is March 14th! Learning materials and instructions will be sent after signing up. We're excited to sing with you! 


People age 14+ are encouraged to participate in the adult choir and those age 13 and younger are encouraged to participate in the youth choir. If you are participating in the adult choir, but are less than 18 year old, have your parent/guardian fill out this form and email it to Aidan Spencer at aidan@ucctcm.org: https://tinyurl.com/jmtdynff

The group that volunteers to deliver meals is small and there are going to be occasions when one of more has other commitments, is ill, or is otherwise not available. We were lucky this time that Great Western Bank employees took one route as a service project and that Sue and Scott volunteered to fill in.


Please seriously consider volunteering to deliver meals to those who are not able to get out. Due to Covid restrictions we are not going into homes but leaving meals in coolers on the doorstep and takes only about 30 minutes. We deliver next the very last week of this year. Go along with a driver to see what it is like or give me a call and we can talk about it.   Lynne Forbush  ~~ 880-5379 

New Pictorial Directory 


We will be working on taking photos to put in a new directory for the church.

They will be snap shots taken at church before or after services. This will not be a fancy professional project. Just a simple snap shot so people joining the church will have an idea of who is who!

It will be an ongoing process and there are no specific time lines.


Thanks for your cooperation,

                                       Dawn Engel 

If you have a photo of yourself that you would like to use for the church directory please email it to the church email address, ucc1wtn@midco.net.
