Youth M&Ms Fundraiser! If you haven’t returned your coin-filled tubes, please do so by this Sunday! Thank you for your generosity! (We’ll still take whatever you’ve got later, but the display is coming down and this is the final reminder).
Social Ministry Reading Mentors: We have finished our first week of meeting with the children at Grand Blanc Academy. The staff is very excited to have us there, and the children are receptive to getting some extra help with sight words and reading. We have 8 volunteers that meet with 6 classrooms once a week. They spend one hour helping as many students as possible. After the first week, I can say that I wish we had many more volunteers. We are not just there teaching reading skills - we are there being the Hands, Feet, and Face of Christ. If you would like to have some fun and show the love of Christ, please contact Marcy Montez at 810-869-4479. -Marcy Montez
