Road Trip with The Rev.

10a.m.  Sat., Feb. 29  “Walk for Warmth”

Meet at church at 8:45a.m. to carpool or meet at the Elks Lodge 510 Ludington St. by 10a.m. to walk together.  Can’t join us – You are still welcome to pledge your support to help Delta County residents having trouble paying their home heating bills.

Pledge sheets are on the bulletin board.  Let us know if you are walking, and we will put your name in the bulletin for people to give on your pledge sheet.  (Bring your pledge sheet to church weekly.)

Rev. is buying lunch for whoever raises the most.

 

Lenten Soup Suppers and Speakers are planned for the 5 Tuesdays in March.  Join us for fellowship and a simple supper at 5:30, followed by a special speaker at 6:00.  Topics will be areas of interest to Delta County.  Invite your friends and neighbors.

 

No More Needed

Thank you for your generous donations of soaps & shampoo for Hope at the Inn and egg cartons for Salvation Army.  We now have enough of these items and don’t need any more.

 

Confirmation Will Be On Palm Sunday, April 5

If you know someone in 6th – 11th grade who might be interested, please invite him/her or let us know.  There are blue informational letters on the long table by the front door.  Our first confirmation gathering will begin at 4:00 on Saturday, Feb. 22, and will lead into supper, followed by an overnight, fun-filled retreat that all youth – confirmed or unconfirmed -- are invited to.

 

Ministry with the Youth

As we gear up for a lively confirmation program this spring and an active Youth Group fully ramping up into the summer, WE NEED ADULTS willing to invest themselves in the lives of these young people. 

We already have several adults on board with us, but the more adults we have with their varied talents and interests, the fuller and broader our Youth Outreach will be.  We are not asking you to be at every single activity or to be “all things to all people” – just to help at the youth activities you feel comfortable at, when your schedule allows.  Please contact Pastor Cathy or Lisa Myers for details.
