Welcome to the Conference

The South Dakota Conference is a place that inspires folk to be their authentic best selves while loving selflessly for the greater good. We as a conference strive for impartial equity and human dignity, recognizing the value of inclusion and relationship. We intentionally restore broken connections through opportunities of expressing hurt, making confessions and seeking forgiveness while offering resources of support on a consistent basis.


Outdoor Ministries

Come and enjoy the natural beauty and relax at Placerville Camp. This incredible United Church of Christ facility, located by Rapid Creek on leased Black Hills National Forest land, has been providing a place of retreat for more than 90 years. Rapid Creek flows by with great Trout fishing. Pactola Lake, which provides great swimming, fishing and boating, is only 6 miles from camp. Outdoor ministries provide a time away from the ordinariness of our lives, so that we might open ourselves to the extraordinary presence of God.
