Summer Activities Planned
It is hard to believe the school year is almost over. It has been an exciting several months of watching God work in the lives of those who seek Him so eagerly. Along the way, we have had to overcome many obstacles. Without God’s strength and faithfulness, there is no way this ministry could have flourished the way it did. It has been a privilege ministering to His precious children and allowing the discouraged and downcast to see the hope and peace that His kingdom promises. This summer we will continue our efforts of connecting with families-in-need and reminding them they are loved and worthy of our community’s prayer and support. If you are able, please consider helping with one or more of the following events. If you are interested and need more information, please contact (text or call) Melissa Hill @ (605) 545-3161.

I have been a part of the elementary ministry team at Charity for about three years. This year I am focusing on the former bus ministry, now called ConnectKIDS. I am passionate about helping these children build a relationship with Jesus while meeting many of their physical needs.
Sunday afternoons will be our time to connect with these families and children with programming and a meal.
My family has been so supportive of this mission and I can’t thank my husband, Derek and our four children: Elle (16), Jaxon (14), Laney (7) and Linkin (5). We have extended our own family by becoming foster parents.
If you can help these families, please call, I would love to share my ministry with you.
...dedicated to helping every child have an opportunity to experience Jesus Christ in a compelling and engaging way and to allow people opportunities to support and be supported through real relationships.
...is to go and make disciples of all nations by providing children and adults whom do not have the means to attend church on their own an opportunity to grow in relationship with the Lord by which God’s grace, love, peace and hope would be extended and experienced by all.
