Can you help??? Needed: 7th Grade Confirmation Teacher
Thank you to Jason Rice for volunteering to be our 6th grade confirmation teacher. We are still in need of a teacher for our 7th grade confirmation class. We would love to have someone for the whole school year, HOWEVER, if we can get (2) volunteers that are willing to commit to ½ the year, we can break it up from September-December and January-April. If this is something you would consider, please contact Pastor Brooks or the church office at 894-8471.



Orientation Meeting
Attention Parents of our 6th, 7th, & 8th Graders ~ There is a Staff-Student-Parent Orientation Meeting on Wednesday, 8/22, at 6:30 pm in the downstairs Fellowship Hall. Letters went out with all the information. If you did not receive one, please contact the church office at 231-894-8471. We will review the Confirmation Handbook, students will pick up and pay for their materials, assignment sheets will be handed out, and we will answer any questions you might have. It is VITALLY IMPORTANT that students and parents attend the meeting on 8/22. If you are unable to attend I need you to contact me so we can arrange a private informational meeting. Classes begin on Wednesday, 9/5, at 6:30 pm.



Monday Morning Men's Bible Study
I am organizing a men's Bible study beginning Monday, September 10th, at 7:00 am.
I hope many will come! The first book we will start with is Jude. It should be a one day lesson then we can decide from there what we will study next. Please sign-up on the bulletin board so I know how many to plan for. If you have any questions, please call Bob Stevens at 894-6297.



Bus Trip Opportunity
St. Mark Muskegon has planned a bus trip to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter for Sept 17-18th. We have extra space and are inviting our sister congregations to join us. Openings will be on a first come first serve basis. Call the church office at 231-798-2197 if you are interested or have questions.
