This Week at Messiah
Wrap the Plasticware
It's time for our annual wrapping of the plasticware! Please plan on joining us as we wrap the plasticware in napkins to be used for the fish dinners. We serve over 3,000 dinners during the six weeks of Len, and all those dinners need a set of plasticware to go with them. We will be wrapping the plasticware on Sunday, February 12 in the gym immediately following second service. Come join the fun.

Future Events at Messiah
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.
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.
Due to popular demand, on more Euchre night has been added for the month of February! Please join us on Friday, February 24th for Euchre at 7pm. Just bring a snack to share and a dollar for the euchre kitty. Come join us for fellowship and fun and see what everyone is talking about.
