Bdecan Presbyterian Church Mission Statement
The mission of the Bdecan Presbyterian Church of Tokio, North Dakota on the Spirit Lake Dakota Nation is to grow as Christ’s witness in our community and reservation worshipping God through prayer, helping each other, fellowship, and Sunday morning worship. While keeping Christ’s love at our center and supporting each one's spiritual journey, we move towards eternal life as one body to fulfill God’s will on earth.

Happy April Everyone. We are making some changes to make our website more up to date. We have sent out newsletters with articles that seemed to repeat month after month. Now, we are looking at doing updates from our church on the website every few weeks.
The kids at Bdecan had a great time learning Easter. They got to parade into the Sanctuary with branches Palm Sunday, learn about the Easter Story, go on an Easter egg hunt, and hear a disciple of Jesus share his Easter experience.
We are looking forward to the rest of the spring, and getting plans made for this summer.
