A church with Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
 

Outreach

 

* Additional devotionals that the church has is sent to Christian International where they are distributed around the world for the edification of the saints and for outreach.

* Messy Church is a different way of having church. It is a time geared for families and individuals to come and experience church in a new way. It is held the 3rd Sunday of each month from 4 - 6 PM.

* Fuel 5000 is our newest program to help high school students who are going hungry during the school day. If you would like to donate food that is microwaveable or snackish (ex. crackers and cheese) please bring to the church. The food will be delivered to the school and it is administered by the teachers who interact with the students.

* The backpack program is a partnership with the National Food bank that brings in food that is sent home with students who have been identified as those in need. They will be sent home with food on the weekends and over long holidays. If you would like to help contribute, please make your check to the church and designate it for the backpack program.

* The Church host a Quilter's group who make quilts for those in need of warmth and love.  The quilts are distributed to DeVoss Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids, the Cheboygan Sheriff's Department, Victims Services Unit in Cheboygan, Tendercare and Rehabilitation, to Dr. Gray to take on mission trips to Haiti, the Onaway Goodfellows, the Neo Natal Unit in Petoskey, Matt Morton for social services, Hurley Hospital in Flint, Veteran's Hospital, Roger's City Baby Pantry, Atlanta Baby Closet, and to the Detroit Conference Annual Meeting for United Methodist Women. 

They meet every Wednesday in the church fellowship hall at 9:30 AM and you are invited to come and share in the laughter and work to make a difference in a life.

* The Caring Closet is a provision closet consisting of personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies to help those in crisis get back on their feet. We believe that the Lord cares about our spiritual well-being and our physical well-being, and that we are called to meet people at their point of need, sharing the love of God with them through His Word and our actions. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis and in need of some help, please contact the church office.
