Bulletin – September 27, 2020

Electronic Bulletin

We typically utilize the YouVersion Bible App “Events” feature for our bulletin. This week the event creation tool we use to put the electronic bulletin together is/was down and not functioning. Therefore, this week’s bulletin is accessible through our email newsletter only. Next week, Lord willing, the bulletin should be back in the YouVersion Bible App. 

Key of Hope

Dan and Rachel Smither, founders of Key of Hope in Durban, South Africa, will be with us on Sunday, October 11th to share their ministry with us. Please make plans to join us for this special Sunday. We will take up a love offering for Key of Hope on October 11th.

UPDATE: Moving Help Needed for Jonathan Wass Family

Due to some unforeseen issues, Jonathan and Traci were not able to move all of their things into their new home this past weekend. They could still use your help moving some things into their new home. The exact date is not yet known, but they are hoping to be able to move things in on Saturday, October 3. If you are able to assist, please text Jonathan at 810-624-2689 so that he knows to expect you. We will plan on meeting at 9:00 am at 4315 Covey Lane. Most of their belongings will already be one site and just need to be moved into the first floor of the home.

Children’s Handbell Choir

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.

Adult Handbell Choir

The adult handbell choir will start our Monday practices at 6:45 pm on October 5-December.
