Sermon Discussion Group
Join Pastor Jasmine each week at Barnes and Noble in Rochester Hills (2800 S Rochester Rd) to discuss the scripture passage for the upcoming Sunday sermon at Troy First. Come occasionally or come weekly as you are able, each session stands alone. Participants will be given the chance to be reflecting on the scripture throughout the week and hear insights from one another. Notes from the discussion will be passed to the preacher that week, so see if your insight makes it into the sermon!
Ephesians Sermon Series
We began a summer sermon series on July 15 on the book of Ephesians that will continue through the end of August. The apostle Paul is writing this letter in order to tell a story, God’s story, of the creation of the world, Christ’s saving work on the cross, and the growth and unity of the church. Like the original recipients of the letter, we are invited to place ourselves in this story too, so let us consider together how we can live out these principles individually and as a church community.
Want to be a Small Group Leader?
As part of our relationship with Kirk in the Hills, we would like to host a small group in the Troy area open to participants from both churches. We are looking for someone to host the group in your home, and a second person to agree to facilitate. This will be a five-week series starting October 7, but we are finalizing plans now as we gear up for the fall, so if you are interested or have any questions, please contact Jasmine. Thanks!
Many, many thanks to Mark Schneider, Ed Leafdale and Bob Jackson for their efforts to gain control of the bee population that took up residence in our bricks outside the main door. We appreciate it!
“Bedding For Kids”
The deacons have decided to support a mission project for kids through the Furniture Bank of Southeastern Michigan. We want to help local children at-risk get a healthy start by supplying much needed bed linens.
Each week the Furniture Bank provides twin beds to more than 15 local children but is not able to supply linens. These kids belong to families who are living in poverty, transitioning from homelessness, working with child protective services or fleeing a crisis and abusive environment. You can help our mission by donating a New Twin Bedding Set, (top sheet, bottom sheet, pillowcase, comforter and sham) for a “Bedding Drive”. Bedding is needed for ages 2-18 years of age.
We will be collecting through the month of August but there is a continuing need; therefore, anytime is greatly appreciated and needed. You can contact Becky Misuraca or Nancy Sisunik for more information if interested in donating.
Thank you! Your Deacons
The flowers in the sanctuary this morning are in honor of Nancy and Bill Sisunik’s 54th wedding anniversary. Congratulations!
