This Week at Messiah
Upcoming Youth Activities
Even though it's summer, we still have some youth activities planned for July. Here's what's coming up...
Back by Popular Demand!
The Fellowship Team will be hosting a summer euchre night on Friday, August 11th at 7 pm in the gym. Come and enjoy summer fellowship with members and guest of Messiah. Just bring a dollar for the kitty and a snack to share. You don't have to be a card shark to join us, just someone who enjoys playing cards. Sign-up sheet in the narthex.
Men of Messiah
Please mark this date on your calendar! On September 15 and 16 we will participate in a men's retreat at Youth Haven Ranch lagoon with men of Our Savior Lutheran. If you would like you can arrive anytime on Friday evening and stay the night, with fellowship all evening before bedtime. You can also arrive at 7am on Saturday for breakfast and the start of our workday at 8am. The cost for overnight and two meals is $35. If you are only coming for Saturday, registration and food is just $5. See Jerry Smith or Tom Large for more details. God Bless
Thanks to the following men for raising a blown down wall at Youth Haven Ranch! Ned Gottleber, Ron Switzer, Jim Jelenek, and Jerry Smith.
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.
Women's Saturday Morning Bible Study
Please join us on Saturday September 16 at 9:30 AM in the Good Shepherd Room for a woman's Bible study. We are doing a Lifelight study from Concordia titled Obadiah/Jonah/Micah. If you would like to join us please let Debbie Pentecost know by phone or text by August 23 soon materials can be ordered. The cost is only $11 for the book for a 9-week session. Hope to see you there.
Little Free Library
Messiah's Little Free Library is on a web map along with 40,000 libraries in all 50 states and 70 countries. Our Little Free Library is not only for those walking by on the path near Holt road, it is also for you. Check it out. Find a book that interests you, your children or grandchildren. AND, book donations are always needed. You can place your donation in the Little Library or in the red tub in the entry.
If you wish to dedicate flowers for an occasion or just want to be able to take home some color on a Sunday, take a look at the flower chart in the hallway by the church offices. There are many openings available between now and the end of the year.
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.
