Parents of youth, if you are not signed up on the Remind app please contact Pastor Bill.


Upcoming Worship Plans: We are intentionally striking a balance between the risks of larger gatherings and singing these days with the need for in person community/support to get through these days. With that in mind, we plan to do the following...

- Smaller group gatherings at the church will continue. We respectfully request that everyone social distance and wear a mask unless you are physically unable to do so.

- Nov 29 & Dec 6 worship services will be pre-recorded, online services only. In person Sunday school will be available @ 11AM for adults led by the Ackermans.


Openings are available on the Audio Visual team & Missions/Relief Ministry. Choose your area of interest to serve Christ and our church. Contact Corbin Swartzendruber for more info.


Elder search update:  Thank you for your prayers. Dale Yoder has accepted the nomination to serve as Elder & will be included in the Gifts Discernment affirmation form.


Please note there will NOT be a December distribution of the Thumb Breadbasket. Please spread the word to those that you have contact with that this may affect. There are m any other opportunities available. Check out Food Bank of Eastern MI for dates and places. 2021 dates are coming soon.


If you are interested in helping the decorating committee please come on November 23 & 24 at 5 pm and stay as long as you like. They will be taking down the fall décor and putting up the Christmas and winter items. If you have any questions please contact Rhonda Buehler.


The November edition of On the Level is now available from Mennonite Disaster Service. In our current issue, you can read why we are suspending projects because of COVID spikes in local communities, learn how MDS volunteers are helping to save a Colorado forest, and an MDS volunteer and author offers a unique approach to support MDS.
