Serve Banquet West Location

The Banquet meal ministry was founded in 1985 starting with just one meal per week. They now serve 13 meals per week at two locations. The Banquet is a volunteer-based ministry, which means the meals are paid for, prepared by, and served by volunteer groups who come from Sioux Falls and the surrounding area.

In 2017 The Banquet served 196,000 meals, and at least 25,000 of those meals were served to children under 12. We go through approximately 15,000 gallons of milk each year.

Blessing of the Backpacks

Gracious God, we lift to you today, these students.

They stand here ready to receive your blessings and they commit themselves to study and learning in the school year ahead. We ask your blessing on each of them.

Further, we ask your blessing on these backpacks. They will hold the school work of each student and will be carried from home to school and back again. As these students carry these backpacks, may they be reminded of the love and care of this congregation that surrounds them each school day.

We pray as well for the teachers and administrators in our schools. May they also be sustained by your blessing. May they be reminded that this congregation embraces their call to teaching and learning and surrounds them with love and care as well.

We pray in the name of Jesus who we seek to follow day by day. Amen.

30 Hour Famine

You can participate in any or all of 3 ways:

  1. You can raise money for World Vision. World Vision is a Christian based company that goes into areas of need and helps feed people but also helps teach the people about sustainable farming, financial literacy, and education for kids. Any money donated goes to these causes.
  2. You can come and have fun at the lock-in! This goes for both youth and adults. During the lock-in, we will not be eating both as a form of worship (John Wesley fasted on a weekly basis) and as an act of solidarity for those who are going without food.
  3. You can pray. Pray for the people that will be helped out as we raise money to help make their lives better. You can pray for the youth as they get a glimpse of what these people go through. And you can pray for the day that people don't have to go without food (come Lord Jesus!).

If you would like to donate to World Vision, you can go to their website or find a youth that is participating in the 30-hour famine and donate there. 

. Contact Curtis for more information.
