Connecting activities are opportunities to connect through common interests, activities, age and season of life.
Connecting activities bring people together to enjoy a common interest and build friendships. The intent is to encourage relationships by getting Rimrockers (and others) together to enjoy a common interest. It is a casual way to connect to the body of Christ through an activity you enjoy. A simple concept with wonderful impact on lives. Here are a few taking place this Fall:
Men’s Racquetball: Tuesdays 4-6 pm at the Swim Center. Contact John Tanner (605) 545-5337.
Ascension (college age): meets Thursdays at 7 pm at the Exchange for Bible study & discussion. Contact Drew Meyer
30s More or Less: meets the 1st & 3rd Sundays at 4 pm at the Exchange. Contact Josh Nebelsick
242 Groups: Inspired by Acts 2:42, these groups will gather 3-4 times this winter/spring and are designed to help people connect to others in the Rimrock Community. These are not bible studies, prayer groups or drop in social groups. Rather they are an opportunity to simply meet and spend time with other Rimrockers. Contact for more info.
Prayer Shawl Ministry:
Shawls are lovingly handmade (knit, crochet or woven) out of soft yarn, prayed over by those who make it then wrapped around someone who needs comfort. They offer a vehicle through which hurting people can feel the loving arms of Jesus. Join Donna Wilkening & friends at the Exchange monthly. Contact Donna with any questions at (605) 391-5838.

The Emptynester (60's +) group reflects it's name; most in the group have empty nests; the kids are grown and gone. This group enjoys socializing together through potlucks, game nights and lunches around the Hills. Many attend Bible studies together or serve at the Cornerstone Mission together. Whatever they are doing, it is more fun doing it together- so join in with them!
