Upcoming Mission Opportunity, CROP Walk:
-Clawson/Troy Crop Hunger Walk is Sunday, May 7, 2017. Registration is at noon, and the walk begins at 1:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 749 W. 14 Mile Road, Clawson.

-Save the Date to Join the Walk OR Support Our Walkers with a Financial Pledge

-There will be a 3-mile route and a 1.5-mile route to choose from.
Please see Joyce or Joe Peterson if you want to walk. We have the registration forms for our Church. Monies raised by the walk are used by Church World Service (CWS), an international relief, development, and refugee resettlement agency. Monies are used to provide food, medical care, disaster relief, and self-help development for people in need in the U.S. and around the world. This year 25% of the funds raised from the Clawson/Troy walk will be distributed locally to Clawson Community Food Bank and Troy People Concerned; the two local agencies chosen for 2017.

-Checks should be made out to CWS / CROP
It is a 501 C-3 Organization and we can provide you with a receipt for your donation

-What is the point of walking? “Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as many as six miles a day to get food, water and fuel, and to take their goods to market. We walk to be in solidarity with their struggle for existence. We walk because we want to end hunger – one step at a time.”

Troy People Concerned Pasta Dinner
The TPC will hold its annual Spring Pasta Dinner on Thursday, April 13th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. The dinner will take place at the San Marino Club, 1685 E. Big Beaver Road in Troy. There will be an open buffet, cash bar, silent auction, and more. Admission is $20. Children under 10 are $5.
