Living Stone Prison Church Visit

 

The Upper Room is finished and Living Stone Prison Church in Springfield SD is meeting in their new Chapel.  We were scheduled to visit and worship with Living Stone on May 27 as they were planning to move services to Sunday evenings so more of us could participate.  
However, the prison is 23 people short on being fully staffed so they are asking that the services stay on Tuesdays until more staff is hired.  We will be going on May 29instead so if you have never been to a worship service and want to come along we need your clearance application in at least 2 weeks before, May 15.  You can pick up forms in the office or contact Verlyn Raak 712 441 4429 for more information.  Let me know if you plan on coming, 4:00 pm May 29, thanks.
