Here are some of the ways that we touch our community with God's love.

The Banquet:  Our church helps cook and serve meals at The
Banquet, a feeding ministry in Yankton, S.D.  Volunteers are needed
to help out with this important mission project.



Scotland Area Food Pantry: Our church collects select monthly items to help fill the shelves of the
Scotland Area Food Pantry. Donations can be dropped off at the church in the specially marked food
pantry box in the lobby.  Church members also have the chance to volunteer as workers at the food
pantry, located in the Youth Center Building downtown.  The Food Pantry is open Tuesdays from 4:30
to 7:00 pm.  Contact the church office for more information.  Download a
list of food and personal items
available at the Scotland Area Food Pantry.


Bon Homme County Food Pantry: Our church collects select monthly items to help fill the
shelves at the county food pantry. The current list of needed items if printed in our
church's monthly
newsletter.  Donations can be dropped off at the church in the specially marked Food Pantry Box in the
main entrance.

Scotland CROP Hunger Walk: Our church joins the other churches in our community in raising
funds for local and global hunger relief.  The CROP Hunger Walk is held on World Communion
Sunday, the first Sunday in October.  Twenty-five percent of the funds raised in the CROP Walk go to
support the Scotland Area Food Pantry.  The remaining 75% is used by Church World Service to fight
global hunger in 80 countries worldwide.  Get more information, sign up to walk and make a donation

Good Samaritan Center:  Our church ministers to elderly individuals living at the Good Samaritan
Center here in Scotland by providing times of worship, Bible study, special music and visits. Contact
the church office on how to get involved with these senior saints.  Below is a video of our Bell Choir
performing for neighbors at the nursing home.
Hands of Faith Ministries:  Curtis and Bonnie (Gall) Hoyt, daughter and son-in-law of Arlene
Gall, have served as missionaries at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota since 2003.  
Hands of Faith serves the Olgala Sioux Native Americans through vocational training, a soup kitchen
in White Clay, winter heating assistance, and coordinating year round mission teams who help with
painting and home repairs.  Learn more at
