Winter Coat Ministry                                                                                         We need your help in 2 separate ways   an you believe Christmas was     4 months ago, Easter has come and gone and we are right on the heels  of Memorial Day and the official start of garage sale season.

First, items are coming in SLOWLY, but steadily, for our clothes giveaway in October. However, our team has been known to be somewhat greedy and we need more donations. We offer the perfect opportunity to rid your closets of those unwanted items you no longer wear. Also, garage sales afford the perfect opportunity to find gently used warm winter outerwear at reasonable prices. Even if you don’t regularly shop garage sales, please consider stopping to check them out if you happen to notice a sign. Items needed include Coats, warm hoodies, hats, gloves, boots and snowpants. We can certainly use child and adult sizes, but children’s sizes are the most needed at this time.

On another note, the winter coat ministry has been near and dear to all our hearts but most especially to the team who coordinates it each year. However, circumstances in our lives sometimes lead to changes. Due to those changes, our team finds itself in need of some additional volunteers to fill voids left by resigning members. Most urgently needed, and in order to continue our work after our next giveaway in October, we will have to find someone to assume responsibility of team leader. One or two additional volunteers are also needed to once again round out the team. Anyone who might be interested in filling an open spot on the team, or getting more information about what is involved, is asked to contact Carol Lewis, Dorothy Peterson or
Sharon Reed.

Thank you,
“Pastor of Care”
If you have a need for pastoral care, please call Kevin Englund (657-5573). We hope that you will reach out if there is a need so that our church family can provide care and support.

From Our College Students
Dear Huron Shores,
Thank you so much for the gift card. It was a wonderful surprise to receive, and will definitely be put to good use. I’m just finishing my first year classes. I took baking, butchery, pastries, and breakfast. I am learning so much. I got asked to be Sous Chef for the butchery class which is an amazing accomplishment.
I am so thankful to have my friend’s from church praying for me. God has been working wonders in my life and I’m truly thankful. God works in great ways.
-Love, Taylor Strich

Thank you so much for the card and gift certificate. It is greatly appreciated, and a huge booster in a very stressful time in school. I cannot thank you enough for your love, and prayers. I look forward to seeing you all soon, and I hope that things are going well in the laboring transformation of a Christ centered and community serving church that Alpena so desperately needs.
Love and God Bless! – Cam Duncan

Dear Huron Shores
I cannot thank you enough for your continual support and prayers. They mean the absolute world to me.

“Freedom From…”Have you ever felt stuck struggling in a bad situation, in a habit or in the past? Everyone has at one time or another. Sometimes we endure short term inconveniences. Other situations can be far more consuming, isolating and devastating. You may feel that no one is mired as deeply as you. How could there possibly be hope to move out of the entrapment? There is hope for freedom!

Our new message series, “Freedom From…” will help us find Biblical guidance in dealing with our struggles with emotional pain, addictions, guilt, shame, perfectionism and the ruts of life. Plan to join us and bring a friend Sunday mornings, April 12th through May 3rd, at Huron Shores Fellowship for these messages offering real hope for very real struggles.

Thank you so much for thinking of me and giving me the generous gift of a Visa gift card. It is incredible how I can receive a gift like this and still feel like I’m getting hugged by the entire congregation. I certainly feel Christ’s love from all of you. It is also uplifting to know that my church family is still thinking and praying for me even though I’m not physically there. Thanks again.
Love, Kelsey Lewis
