This Week at Messiah
Dessert for Fish Dinners
Again the year, we will be asking for donation for our homemade pies served at the fish dinners. Any sized cans of apple, cherry, peach, and blueberry pie filling are always needed, as well as boxes of cook and serve vanilla pudding, both regular and sugar-free, and angel food cake mixes for parfaits. A box will be in the narthex for your donations. Also a group of ladies meet every Friday morning of our dinners to make and bake about 40 pies. If you would like to help out in the pie making or have any other questions about deserts, please contact Elaine Volker.
Future Events at Messiah
Easter FlowersIn partnership with the Holt Lions Club, orders for Easter Flowers are currently being taken through Wednesday, April 5th. Order sheets and payment envelopes are on the Narthex table. All plants are $10.00 each. Lilies, daffodils and yellow tulips will be used to decorate the altar area for Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday services. Red and pink tulips are also available. Plants can be taken home after late service Easter Sunday. Any plants remaining after late service Sunday, April 23rd will be planted on Messiah property. Please place payment envelopes in Chris Gilliland’s mailbox. Proceeds from sales are used by the Lions Club to support local community projects. Questions can be directed to Chris.
Youth Service Activity
Our Youth will be assembling Blessing Bags throughout 2017. What is a Blessing Bag you may be wondering? It is a gallon size bag filled with personal care items, snacks, and a word of encouragement to be distributed to the homeless persons in the Holt/Lansing area. After assembly, the bags will be available in the narthex for congregational members to pick up and place in their cars. Then, when you come upon a person in need, hand them the bag. These bags will be available starting in February. If you have questions about this service activity, contact Sara Vanderbilt.
Please contact the office for an appointment. If you have something that needs to be brought to an elder's attention, please call them at their number as listed in Messiah's Directory.
