Church Food Pantry" opens at 1:30 p.m. on
one Tuesday per month, however, due to a new computer system and the way the new program works, it will fluctuate between Tuesdays, so you will have to watch above and we will post it for the coming month as soon as we have it! Our food pantry is an agency of the
Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
the winter we have several roller skating nights @ 6 pm on the Saturday following the Food Pantry, in the Fellowship Hall, which has a full sized basket ball
court. 8:00 am on that same Saturday will be the Men's Prayer Breakfast. There will also normally be a Movie Night two weeks after that, on Saturday @ 6 pm. We will show movies that honor Christ and spread the Good News of the Gospel! Great Family entertainment and training, too!
At least one Ice Skating event is to be
scheduled for sometime each winter.
In the summer we
will be looking at a tubing/canoeing event on the
nearby AuSable River. Several of our families go tubing nearly every Sunday afternoon when the weather is warm, so you can get in on that also! We have a church picnic, at least one
bonfire night and several other events that will be announced above, as they are scheduled. We had a FamilyBible Conference at the Wisconsin Dells in 2014, a Family Bible Retreat at the DoubleJJ Ranch in the summer of 2015, and a great time at Camp Faholo, near Grass Lake, in 2016. We will be having Family Camp every summer. Stay tuned for them as they come up. We are also having a Senior Adult Retreat once a year and regularshopping and tour events throughout the year.
We are planning on setting up a fall tour on the AuSable River Queen Paddle Boat, again next year.The last was well attended and enjoyed by all. The dates and times for that outing will be announced as it is firmed up. The River Queen cancelled on us this year (2016) because of high winds, pray next year works out better!
Other Opportunities for Service: We have choir practice on Sunday afternoons at 5:00 or 5:30 pm as announced. If you sing or play an instrument please see Ken Busch or Linda Hoole and we will get you into the schedule to sing or play! Our members regularly get together to help each other and neighbors. We will attempt to announce those ahead of time in the space above and in the calendar.
There are at least three work-days per year at the church for clean up and seasonal preparations. Also, many have helped each other with auto, home, furnace, plumbing and appliance repairs; even building new homes. We have a really skilled bunch, so if you need something fixed, let someone know and we may be able to get it done inside the church family! Especially if you need help, call the church and let Pastor know; we will see what we can do to help you with that need!
Conversely, if you know how to do something that may be needed, and are willing to donate your time, or help for less than normally charged in the area, let Pastor or one of the Trustees know and we will contact you when there is a need.
Right now, our men are working to get the new educational wing up and usable. Let us know if you would be willing to help with any of the work on that and we will give you a call when the materials are available. The Lord has blessed and it appears we should have that up and usable sometime in March or April! Praise Him!
