What happened to Samaritan's Feet in the pandemic?
First United Methodist Church in Sioux Falls hosted a back to school event in their parking lot.
Over 400 students registered to pick up a bag filled with things to help them kickstart the new school year. Each bag had a pair of athletic shoes, socks, and a hygiene kit. They also got a “Hope Note” with an encouraging message from a stranger somewhere else in America. And for the second year in a row, Feeding South Dakota helped out by providing a backpack food bag.
“With the pandemic, we’ve made some decisions to go outdoors to be able to socially distance. This year we’re doing a drive through shoe distribution which presents a lot of fun and a difference for what we do as an organization that normally washes the feet of the shoe recipients,” Denise Blomberg, regional director of Samaritan’s Feet, said.
“That’s probably been the toughest part of this year is not necessarily seeing the direct reaction of some of the kids but, you know, for some of these people, we’re replacing the same shoes that they were given last year and that’s a big thing. So just to be able to do as much as we can. We’re all very lucky, very blessed just to be here today and be able to help,” volunteer Sam Willard said.
In just 2020 alone, Samaritan’s Feet has distributed over five hundred thousand shoes across the United States.

What do you spill out?
You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and accidentally bumps you and shakes your arm, making you spill coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? Because someone bumped into you, right? Wrong answer... You spilled the coffee because coffee was in the cup. If tea had been in it, you would have spilled tea. Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out. Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you, whatever is inside of you will come out.
So, each of us has to ask ourselves… what’s in my cup? When life gets bumpy, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace, and humility? Or anger, bitterness, harsh words, and reactions? We choose what’s in our cup! Today, let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy Words of affirmation to ourselves and others, kindness, gentleness, and love.
As we all struggle to make sense of what is going on in the world today—COVID-19, racism, tropical storms and tornados hitting communities with devastating results—let’s be sure to fill our cups with the right “ingredients.” God is always good. Christ is our example. Let’s get this one right.

As with all events during this time, it is subject to change.
Reminder to buy grocery cards
Even though a lot of our groups aren’t meeting right now, you can still buy HyVee cards from Marcy Bird. The cards help both the church and the UMW so continue to purchase the cards. We all still have to get groceries because we all still eat, even while living in the “new normal.”
