When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you! I Trust in God, so why should I be afraid. – Psalm 56:3-4

During these uncertain days, we can trust God that He is in control and continues to watch over us.  So pray, practice good hygiene, and follow instructions from our government and health officials.  We have some links and info to assist you and your family.

You can make a difference by helping people here in Sioux Falls.  Churches are coming together to help those in need.

Call to action from Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken: Check on a neighbor. Walk over, knock on the apartment next door. Just say, how’re you doing? Do you need anything? Are you worried? Can I say a prayer for you? Don’t hold their hand, but just offer to say a kind word to them. We are going to need a sense of community more than ever in the months ahead. One Sioux Falls–we’re going to have to dip deep into that now.

If you would like to volunteer and help Feeding South Dakota pack emergency food boxes for neighbors in need, sign up through the Helpline Center  volunteer page.

If you are healthy and able to donate blood, the Sioux Falls Community Blood Bank has some opportunities at various locations. Learn more here.

The City of Sioux Falls has placed free carryout parking signs near downtown restaurants and food establishments. The free 20 minute parking signs for those picking up food orders are to encourage continued support and help small businesses downtown.

The list of cancellations, postponements and closings is growing around the Sioux Falls area. In addition, many area churches are changing their schedules. Please check on events and facilities that affect your family calendar.
