WE ARE CLOSED TODAY DUE TO WEATHER
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess,
for He who promised is faithful.”
Because of God’s faithfulness, we are people of hope.
Our hope is based on who God is – and He is completely worthy
of our trust. Praise God for His faithfulness!
And praise God for the hope that can be ours!
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.

VERSE FOR THE WEEK
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life…But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:25 & 33
PASTORAL CARE OPPORTUNITY
If you have a need for pastoral care, Pastor Jack Williams will be available at the church on Thursdays from 12pm – 4pm. Please call ahead to verify that he is available.
How to keep warm in church:
Rush to the front of the sanctuary.
That will warm you up, and
you’ll avoid the draft in the back of the church.

CARE AND OUTREACH PROJECT
For our current project we are collecting things for the Women’s Shelter kitchen. When the abused women leave their home, they leave everything behind. The shelter finds them jobs and helps them get set up in a place to live. We are asking for utensils, dishes, dish towels and cloths, pot holders, etc. Anything you would need in a kitchen.
PRAYER REQUESTS – “PRAYER CHAIN”
There are times when we have all needed immediate prayer for our family, loved ones and friends. Huron Shores Fellowship now has a PRAYER CHAIN to help in those circumstances. If you would like to request prayer, please contact Becky Sommerfield at 517-481-6720 and she will pass it on to the prayer chain.

2016 OFFERING ENVELOPES
If you did not see a pack of envelopes with your name and would like one, sign the available sheet or call the church office, 358-0047. If you want an accounting for tax purposes next year, you need to use a numbered envelope for recording purposes. Thank you.
DO YOU KNOW?
The Leadership Team is working hand in hand with the Sheriff’s Dept. on security for the church.
(1) We will no longer post information about our head count or offering amounts (you can get that information from Judy in the church office or see the Treasurer).
(2) Also for security, at 11 am Sunday morning, the church doors will be locked. We will have individuals available at doors to let late attendees in. (3) Weekly, when Judy is at the church alone, the doors will be locked. Please ring doorbell and/or call her in advance to let her know you are coming or are there.
