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. (adopted by the Bdecan Session November 1, 2009)

We had a wonderful summer 2018 at Bdecan. We had a team from Rochester MN do VBS, and a team from Cincinnati Ohio work on our clothing closet. A huge thank you to both of those teams.
This fall, our KICK program will move to after school, starting Wednesday, September 12th. Kids will be able to take the school bus to KICK, so we can start at a more consistent time. Parents and Grandparents need to send in a note with their child. Please pick kids up around 5:30.
