Jonathan and Traci could use your help moving some final things into their new home on Saturday, September 26 at 9:00 am. We will meet at the parsonage at 2353 E. Grand Blanc Rd. This should be a very quick process as there are just have a few last things to move, but several hands will be needed as the last things to move are heavy.
Please text Jonathan at 810-624-2689 so that he know to expect you, and can give you information if the meeting place changes.
Our children’s handbell choir, grades 4 - 7th (for those that have participated in our children’s handchime classes) will be meeting during the church service starting on Sunday, October 4 through December, at 10:30 am. We will meet in the missions room on the upper level where we will be practicing for our part in the Christmas special. Please let Kathy Wass or Traci Wass know as soon as possible as we prepare assignments.
Is your garage filling up with pop cans? Don’t want to wait in endless lines when you can finally return those cans?￼ Let us worry about storing and returning your cans and we will use the bottle deposit returns for Pastor Chris’ trip to Sri Lanka.
If you would be interested in donating your cans, please contact Pastor Jonathan and he will arrange a time with you to bring your cans to the church building.
As we begin to regather we will still utilize methods of giving that help to limit personal contact. Please see the information posted previously for ways in which you can give during these unique days at this link.
