Moderators March Message




It is a great honor to be the 2024 Moderator for our wonderful church!

I have only been a member of the UCC for 7 months, but I can assure you that all of you feel like family to me.  When I walked into this church back in the fall of 2021, I knew immediately that I had found my church family.  You all greeted me with such warmth and kindness.  I felt right at home.   

I grew up in a small church very similar to First Congregational UCC.  A small church in rural eastern South Dakota.  It was a huge part of my life growing up and I am truly grateful for that experience.  After having moved away several years ago, I now find that I have come full circle back to South Dakota and I am here to serve in any way I can. 
Please be patient with me as I learn all the policies and procedures.   

There are several committees here that offer a great way to become more involved.  We have a Mission & Outreach committee, a Visitation committee or if you are interested in getting more involved with the actual church structure itself, we have a Building & Grounds committee. There are other committees as well and I am just listing a few. If anyone is interested, please see me. I look forward to working with everyone and having an amazing 2024!

   Thank you ~ Susan Aamold
