COVENANT CLASS (Membership)
If you would like to become a member of Huron Shores Fellowship – or if you would like to learn more about our church – Pastor Jack will be leading this, so watch for the date sometime in April. We’ll gather for a time of sharing together about our church. We’ll talk about how to become a part of our church – and how you can find your place here at Huron Shores. This is also a great time to talk about what it means to be a Christian. If you have questions – or if you have already decided that you want to be an official part of the Huron Shores family – then help us prepare, there’s a sign-up list in the foyer. Please plan to join us!
Change in Wednesday Evening
There will not be regular evening activities this Wednesday March 22 so please attend “Holy Week” services – also due to Spring Break/School calendar next Wednesday March 30.
Please join us at 6:30 Wednesday, April 6. Pastor Jack will be doing a new study entitled “Prayer”.
BLESSING BACKPACKS (New Care & Outreach Project)
We are going to be filling backpacks with things the homeless can use. A lot of these items can be picked up at the dollar store. A few ideas are: gloves, thermal socks, hats, beef sticks, candy bars, crackers, toothpaste, toothbrush, wipes, deodorant, snacks, wash cloth, small towel, etc. Use your imagination. These items can be put in the tub in the hallway.
Huron Shores Fellowship now has a PRAYER CHAIN to help in those circumstances. If you would like to request prayer, please contact Cheryl Herman at 989-884-0388 and .. if she can’t be reached call Becky Sommerfield at 517-481-6720. She will pass it on to the prayer chain.
