Strengthen the Church Offering: Our Strengthen the Church Special Offering begins today. As God calls our local congregations to be the Church in new ways, your gift will help create new churches, awaken new ideas in existing churches, and develop spiritual life in youth and young adults. Special offering envelopes will be in the pews through June 9.
Downriver for Veterans: We are collecting non-perishable food items for Downriver for Veter-ans located on Fort Street in Wyandotte. Only in its second year, this organization needs on-going support to assist local resource-limited veterans with food and other needs. Some veterans are on disability income and don’t have enough to pay their bills and buy gro-ceries. You can place your donations in the Totes of Love bin in the back of the Sanctu-ary. Please check the expiration date to make sure items have not expired. Thank You!
