AED Training
Kevin Langley, the fire marshal from GIFD, has graciously agreed to train
interested members in the
use and operation of our AED machine.

The AED is the automated external defibrillator and is stored in the hallway outside of the sanctuary.
Tentatively, the training will occur after an upcoming worship service, beginning at approximately 10:45 am.
The training should be brief, lasting about 15 minutes.
The date of the training will be announced in the next newsletter.
Thank you to the following members who kept the church tidy for services,
the grounds tended,
projects (and projectors) overseen,
and the All Saints Service
beautifully organized:

ChristNet time is upon us!

Due to the pandemic, major changes
are being instituted. 
Grosse Ile has been assigned
the week of Nov. 15-21. 
Lunches are funded through a special program and housing is being taken care of by
Wayne Metropolitan Agency.
Our responsibility will be in paying for breakfasts and dinners that week. 
Leo’s and Pete’s Restaurants in Taylor will be providing the dinners.
Leo’s will prepare 6 days’ worth at a cost of about $1600. 
We will provide 200 breakfast bags consisting of individually wrapped items. 
The cost is about equal to what we’ve paid for in the past by preparing these meals. 
 
If you can help with this cost, it would be greatly appreciated by those in need
You can donate cash, or by check, or credit card through the online giving app. 
Make checks out to St. Thomas and indicate "ChristNet" on your contribution
so that it is directed to the correct fund. 
If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Kline at 734-693-3832.
REMEMBER . . .
The sanctuary at St. Thomas is open on
Wednesday mornings, 9 am to noon.
