A Former Member Moves on. Learned from a daughter that Arlene Hughes Ruge, a member here from June 1987 to February 2001, died on November 10. Arlene had a great love for this church and wanted her friends here to know she always thought of us, especially the mission trip to Mwandi.
Former Pastor Ben (Rev. Dr. Benebo Fubara-Manuel) has just been elected as the President of the Christian Council of Nigeria. In this role, he will be advising the Nigerian government on policy positions. Please keep Pastor Ben and his important work that shapes the world in your prayers.
We are in need of a person to fill out our roster of three teachers for the Children’s Sunday School program. The teachers rotate as leaders for children’s time during our Sunday Services using the ‘user friendly’ materials “Growing in Grace and Gratitude”. If you feel called to help with this program, please contact Rev. Karen Fitz-LeBarge at 616-866-2230.
The CE for Children committee is setting up a worship center in the classroom. We are looking for a small table, about the size of a bedside table. If you have one to donate, please contact the church office.
