Across our Nation

Tim and Kim Wardell, serve as Pass Creek Church of God, Allen, South Dakota, missionaries to the Oglala Lakota Sioux Nation. They live just on the border of the reservation and live alongside the Native American people offering support, a food-pantry, and hope is a culture that battles addiction and a high suicide rate. 

Connection Point Church made our first trip to work along with them in September, 2017 to restore two abandoned buildings to functional bunk-houses for men and women. To find out more about the Wardell's and their mission, check out their website on Church of God Ministries here

2021 Mission Trip - Allen, SD

Pine Ridge Indian reservation

From June 11th through June 19th,  16 members of Connection Point joined with 6 from LifePoint Church of God in Goshen, IN and  caravaned to the Pine Ridge Reservation at Allen, South Dakota to serve alongside Tim & Kim Wardell and Rob & Kari Cotten to minister to the Oglala Lakota Sioux people. We laughed, played, and learned with approximately 80 children in a Vacation Bible School week that included Bible stories, a lot of fun, song, dance, crafts amazing lunches. Another team removed the old tile flooring from Theresa Whirlwind Horse's kitchen, living room and hall, and replaced it with modern vinyl plank flooring.
