**On July 27, the Corsica congregations will serve a meal at the Banquet in Sioux Falls. Please sign up on the sheets in the fellowship hall. We need about 30 people to serve and 8 people to prepare the meal.
**Pastor April will be on vacation from July 16-27. Rev. Velma Larson will be on call to provide pastoral care and will be at the parsonage in Stickney much of the time. Her cell phone number is 605-660-6711.
**Please remember Pastor April in your prayers as she is on vacation for the next two weeks. Pray for safety as she travels, and that she will come back rested and renewed.
**Both churches are collecting school supplies to send to Lutheran World Relief, or places that have a need. To complete our school kits for missions, we are in need of pencils (each kit needs 5), notebooks (each kit needs 4), blunt scissors, 2 ½ “ eraser, crayons (box of 16 or 24) pencil sharpener, 12” ruler with centimeters on one side, ball point pens (each kit needs 5 black or blue pens).
**On July 15 there is a rural/small town ministry “round-up” in Wessington Springs, from 2-6. An evening meal and snacks will be provided! The purpose is to build support networks, discover resources, and gather ideas for increasing vitality of our congregations and communities. Please let Ron Lauck or Delayne Persson know if you are interested!
