Attention Snowbirds!

Snowbirds, as you make your preparations to and from warmer climates, please remember to inform the church of your departure date, so we can update your records. Third class mail does not forward and is returned to the church with an addtional charge.

Another option for the newsletter is the paperless Parish Tidings. You'll get your news on time instead of waiting weeks for postal delivery. Sign up by contacting Janet via email or 517-787-6460.


I'm in the Hospital
(Or I'm Aware of Someone Who Is)
