harvest of Crafts Bazaar

On Saturday, October 28, South Canyon Lutheran Church will hold its 27th Annual Harvest of Crafts Bazaar, which features crafters and vendors from around the Black Hills and abroad. We will serve cinnamon rolls for breakfast and super nachos for lunch. Additionally, there will be a bake sale featuring local goodies. All proceeds will go toward future youth trips. The bazaar will be open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Join us at 700 44th St.


Join us on Sundays for worship services at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., with Take Time for Faith (a gathering and activities for all ages) at 9:15 a.m. On Wednesdays, we offer C.O.W. (Church on Wednesday), with dinner from 4:45 p.m. to 5:50 p.m., worship at 6:00 p.m., and education for all ages at 6:30 p.m. Our Saturday worship is at 5:30 p.m.


Celebrate the Reformation

October 31 marks the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, when Martin Luther posted his "95 Theses" on a church door in Germany. Luther's ideas opposing certain teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic church led to a monumental shift in Christianity. Luther taught that Scripture is the supreme authority for the believer; that salvation comes by grace alone, through faith alone; and that baptism gives all full access to God in Christ.

That's a reason to celebrate!

Here are some Reformation events:

  • Reformation Book Fair - Check out the display in the Koinonia Kafe featuring books about and by Martin Luther. Orders will be taken through October 27.
  • Adult Bible Study - Pastor Roger will continue his study on "A Man Named Martin" at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays in the Reformation Room.
  • Reformation Fair - Join us in Fellowship Hall at 9:15 a.m. Sunday, October 22, for booths and family activities to help us learn more about the Reformation and Martin Luther.
  • Reformation 500: A Celebration - Join the ELCA churches of the Black hills for this celebration at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, October 29, featuring music, hymns, readings, and prayers. Refreshments will be served.


Join the Altar Guild

  Our Altar Guild members work in monthly teams to prepare the altar, the wine, and the bread for communion. It's a rewarding ministry - and more help is always needed! The group will meet to set the schedule and discuss duties at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, October 28, in the Reformation Room (during the Harvest of Crafts Bazaar). Join us and learn more! 


Saturday worship is at 5:30 p.m. We serve Holy Communion every Saturday.

Sunday worship is at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Holy Communion is offered every Sunday at alternating services (first and third Sundays at 8:00 a.m., and second and fourth Sundays at 10:30 a.m.)

Wednesday worship with Holy Communion is at 6:00 p.m. every Wednesday.
