Macomb County Warming Center 2017

We will once again host the Warming Center here starting Sunday, January 1st through Sunday, January 8th. It is an opportunity to live the scripture which teaches us to feed and give shelter to those in need. We will be opening up our church doors each night to 75-90 men and women and providing a meal and a warm and safe place to spend the cold night. It is our opportunity to start the year by signing up for one of the many volunteer positions.

We also welcome any donations of socks, underwear or warm clothing.

Please see Dan McLatcher or Sandy Paul if you can help.

Thank you good and faithful church!

Youth Group
Nov. 6

nov-youth

Youth Group will gather on November 6 in the youth lounge. Please bring a favorite photo of yourself (any age). I am still looking for a family to host lunch for us. Pick up is at 1:00 pm.

On November 20 we will join the church for the potluck and hanging of the greens. Please come and help your church family transform our sanctuary for the holiday season. They love it when they see you all.

Cereal Drive
Nov. 13 & 20

nov-cereal

Our church will be conducting a cereal drive on two Sunday’s in November. Please purchase a box or two of cereal on a trip to the grocery store and then bring it to church on November 13th or November 20th.

The cereal we collect will then be donated to Father Bob’s Food Pantry in Mount Clemens.  It will be amazing to see the amount of cereal that we collect and the generosity that is displayed in our giving!

Thomas Curtis Clark summed it up beautifully when he wrote, “I sought His love in sun and stars, and where the wild seas roll, And found it not. But when I gave to one in need, I found the Lord of Love indeed.”

JAM Starts Oct. 19th

First United Methodist

Greetings,

I hope that you are all doing well and enjoying the start of the Fall activities.  I know that everyone’s schedules start to fill up fast, so please mark your calendars now for JAM.  We have changed our program start date to October 19, 2016 and we will end before Easter in March.  We will begin with Dinner at 5:30 pm, there will also be time for Bible Learning “Sunday School”, and Music, Craft, or Mission projects, children can be picked up at 7:30 pm. The Music details will be based on what children are present, so please contact me ASAP.  Our Youth Group, (6th—12th grade) have Bells, Sunday School, and Youth Group on Sunday’s. But there has been a request to have a 6th – 12th grade option during JAM. If we have youth that will be there, we will gladly put together a mission focused program.  So again, please contact the church office and let us know if your youth will be participating in this afterschool activity.  We are so excited about this year’s program and themes.  We are blessed to have many people that believe in our children and their Christian Foundation.  Of course we are still in need of lots of adult helpers. Come, get to know great kids, make new adult friends, enjoy a meal, and make a difference in their faith journey.

Peace,

Kitty Kinic
