Bible 101 is Going Digital
We met this past Sunday on Zoom. The discussion went well and was very easy to use. It was so good to have that time to check in with each other, grapple with what's going on, and talk about where God's calling us. We'd love to have anyone join us who's looking for a way to connect. We're meeting Sundays after the service at 10:30. Over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at different readings and studies with some lectionary mixed in. People can just drop-in or contact Lisa Worf at 248-770-7400 or email her, if they'd like to be added to the list or are having trouble connecting via the link. 
Women's Bible Study Online
A Women’s Bible Study via Zoom has begun on Thursdays at 8 PM. To join in, contact Amanda Shanks. She will give details about connecting to the Zoom gathering. amandajshanks@gmail.com mobile/text 804-338-9847

Attic Sale Fundraiser Update
Hello friends and neighbors, Unfortunately, we will be postponing the Attic Sale until further notice. Kindly please continue to hold onto your donations until further notice, if you have the space and are able to keep them. We do plan to still have the Youth Attic Sale & Bake Sale when it is safe to do so. As always, thank you for supporting the Youth Missions.
ASAP Aquarium Refund
Due to closure of church events and precautions related to COVID-19, the Aquarium trip is cancelled for March 19. The Aquarium is refunding the money since the same people may not be able to go at a future unknown date. I do not have a precise date yet when you will receive your money. -Olivia Magee
