Welcome to St. Dysmas of South Dakota 

We are two congregations of the ELCA (Evangelical Church in America) located behind the walls of the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls and Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield. We also support Sunday evening worship at the Yankton Minimum Unit in Yankton.

Your support is crucial to sustaining our strong and dynamic ministries. We welcome you to worship with us. When you worship with us you fulfill Christ’s command and will be blessed by an hospitable welcome and a vibrant worship experience. 

We would not be here without your generous and faithful financial support. 

Please look around our web site and contact us with any questions or to schedule a visit from our pastor to your congregation. We would love to come and tell you more about St. Dysmas.
