ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING AUGUST 13TH… Please make a point to stay after worship on August 13th to take up important matters in the life of our church. Pastor Steve will be sharing about our vision for ministry and direction for the future. We’ll also seek the congregation’s approval of the proposed budget for the next fiscal year, as well as elect elders and deacons to new terms of service. Although only members can vote on the business, we encourage all regular attenders to join us! If you didn’t receive the letter, budget and bios via email or postal mail this week, please let Julie know ( and she will send you a copy.

MICHIGAN ADVENTURE TRIP, AUGUST 17TH… Join us at Michigan’s Adventure on Thursday, August 17th at 11:00 AM at the front gate. Discounted tickets are available for $15 if you register by email to by August 13th. Michigan’s Adventure is a great amusement park for families! Half of it is a water park and the other half is filled with rides and activities. We’d encourage you to consider making it an overnight trip and mix in some camping or other northern Michigan adventures.

FAMILY MISSION PROJECT… This summer we are encouraging families to create memories and make a difference in other’s lives. One opportunity that we want to offer up is to use the summer to collect back-to-school supplies so we can fill a backpack and give it to a child who could not purchase the basic supplies needed for going back to school in the fall. We will give the backpacks to some of our supported ministries in Detroit so that they get in the hands of some kids who would be blessed by your efforts. Read More on the Blog…

LEARN MORE ABOUT FAITH IN ACTION… Who: All members and attenders young and old. What: Join us on a church-wide summer initiative to be a blessing in our community. How: Look around your communities and look for ways you can show people in that community love. Read More on the Blog…
