Thank you!

In 2018, we are taking the opportunity to say thanks to our cooperating churches throughout the Dakotas for their generosity in giving to the Cooperative Program. God has blessed over the last five years with our Cooperative Program giving growing in record proportions.

We are arranging and hosting celebration suppers across the Dakotas for pastors and wives and inviting leadership from each church. We enjoy a meal together and Garvon will share plans about some exciting plans for the next two-four years.

A supper will be coming to a town and location near you. Please plan to be a part. So far, we have hosted three dinners with a combined attendance of 75. We have two planned, one in Pierre and one in Sioux Falls, in April.

We look forward to hosting someone from your church soon!
