Refreshments will be served.
Pray for the continuation of this ministry. Your service lets these moms know that you care about them and their children. Also, if you know a single mom, please invite her to the group. We do make a difference in their lives! Sue Clapper is your contact and messages can be left for her via the church office ( or 712-469-3510).

OSUM Youth
TWIGS needs you (as an adult volunteer). This is a vital ministry of the church and needs to be nurtured and continued. Please let the Pastor know if you are willing to be a part of this ministry and help revamp it to fit the needs of the youth.
For instance:

  • Special speakers pertaining to topics of interest
  • Service projects and activities in the church and community
  • Creative leadership ways that adults can work together to enhance this program and engage the youth in ways that will give them purpose and grow in their faith


  • Adults with willing hearts! God will do the rest.
