2019 Urban Ministry Luncheon
The 2019 Urban Ministry Luncheon was hosted by GFAGC with the help of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church, Detroit and Faith, Troy. Twice a year GFAGC facilitates a ministry sharing day for our partner ministries in Detroit. This allows participants to share ideas and encourage one another as they minister in their city. Thank you to Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church for hosting our February luncheon!
Family Feud is a Success!
The GFAGC team won our match and GFAGC was also blessed with over $1500 in silent auction proceeds! Thank you to John, Adrianne, Larry and Catherine for feuding on our behalf and Marsha, Cheryl and Wayne for making our auction so profitable! We especially thank Trinity Lutheran Social Ministry for sponsoring this yearly event and inviting GFAGC to participate. It was a great night out!
35 kids attended the Valentine Party at East Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Detroit. The message of Jesus's love for them was in the air. There was plenty of pizza, crafts, cupcakes, candy, Valentine bags, and stuffed animals for all.
Don't forget to direct your Thrivent Choice Dollars to Gifts For All God's Children by March 31st. It will help us to reach more children in the city!
