Service of Worship
January 24, 2016
“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
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.
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.
COULD THIS BE YOU?
We need two new members for the Finance Team, and you would be expected to take a turn on counting the collection.
WE NEED YOUR INPUT
We need additional members for our Ministry Teams and want any and all nominations that you may have. The Teams started in January 2016 but we are shy members. Please help us and submit your nominations to the Leadership Team: Anna Kollien, Evelyn Avery, Becky Sommerfield, Peg Chatfield, Russ Lewis, Martha Hayes or Jeff Freel.
We are still in need of ushers. We are looking for men and women – all ages – please see Ron Chatfield if you can help.
WE WANT YOUR BOTTLES AND CANS
The Buffalo, New York Mission Team is collecting empty cans/bottles in order to raise money for the trip. Bring your cans/bottles at the Sunday School entrance. If you would like us to come to your house and pick up your empties, please call Shannon Sherwin 590-2206
Eric Vanderveer is coordinating a CHRISTIAN YOUTH SKATE, February 20th from 1-4pm @ Hillman Community Center. There will be Contemporary Christian Music & Approved Pop Music, Pizza, Hamburgers, Nachos, Popcorn, Candy and Pop at concessions. Cost is $5.00 per person. Need a head count by February 12th. Please let your youth leader know.
YUMMY! KRISPY KREME GLAZED DONUTS
Jakob Lewis and Chase Sherwin are taking orders for Krispy Kreme donuts after church today and again on January 31. Donuts will be available to be picked up at the church on Sunday, February 7.
The money that will be made from this fundraiser will go directly to offset the cost for materials that they will be using to fix and rebuild homes for those that need our help.
The Youth Mission Trip this summer will be in Buffalo, N.Y. We ask that you, please, be praying for our youth and the families they will be serving. If you have questions, please call Shannon Sherwin 590-2206
We need your dates for the February calendar ASAP. Call the church office 358-0047
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.
Planning for Snow
In general, whenever it’s possible, we will plan to keep our regular schedule. If weather is extremely bad, however, we will cancel services and activities. We will try to make that decision as early as possible – and we will communicate any cancellations with local radio stations and on our web pages.www.huronshoresfellowship.org (or)
Huron Shores Fellowship Church/Facebook
For Wednesday activities, we will follow the decision of our local public schools. If it’s a snow day for our schools, then we will cancel our Wednesday activities.
For other church activities on other days, we’ll leave it to the individual groups to make their own decision. Please check directly with your group leader for those decisions.
Even though we will try to maintain our regular schedule, we want you to feel comfortable about your own personal decision about traveling in bad weather. If your area happens to be dangerous, or if you are snowed in, we encourage you to use your own judgment. Please do not travel if it seems unsafe to you. Please know that we will understand your decision and – even if you have responsibilities here – we will find a way to cover for you. If you are able to come, please come. But if you determine that it’s not wise to travel, then we encourage you to stay home.
