The Bridges International group at Michigan State is planning to visit our area on Saturday and Sunday, October 22-23. Would you consider hosting some of these students? Host families would pick up their guests Saturday at 5 pm and bring them to church Sunday morning. A potluck meal is planned for Sunday noon for everyone to have time to interact with the students. A sign-up sheet is on the Welcome Center. Contact Marie for more details.

On Saturday, October 29 at 9 am we will have a Women's breakfast. Breakfast casserole & baked oatmeal will be provided. If you are able please bring a breakfast dish to share. We will have a time of devotions, discussion, and prayer. Please invite your friends to join us.

This winter we will be having a secret sister event from November to February. If you are interested in showing a sister in Christ love and support this winter please sign up at the welcome desk and fill out a form. We will hand out sister partners the weekend of October 29 & 30.

Pigeon River has committed their leadership to a worship service at Be Light Restoration in Flint on the third Sundays of each month. Contact Pastor Bill if you would be willing to support our church in this ministry opportunity.

The Youth/parent meeting on Sunday favored going back to a midweek youth meeting instead of Sunday nights. Because of this youth will begin meeting on Wednesday, October 26 at 6:30 pm. On Sunday, October 23rd at 2 pm they will meet to go to the corn maze.

A Youth for Christ Benefit Concert will be on Thursday, October 20th @ 7 pm. at the Laker High School Auditorium. This is a free concert with a free will offering taken. Contact 989-453-3239 for more details.
