Summer [June] English Workshop Needs More Volunteers!
I am delighted to say that, so far, we have 20 students registered for Saturday mornings and 20 students for Tuesday afternoons in the Summer English Workshop.
Students in the Beginner classes need more one on one, or small group help than the Intermediate and Advanced level students. Therefore, we could use more volunteers.

Here are the class meeting dates and times:
Saturdays: June 3, 10, 17 and 24 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: June 6, 13, 20 and 27 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Please see Karen Lake, Nancy Sisunik, or Leanne Prescott, if you would like to help us BE the church in our community.

GEMS: God’s Elegant Mature Servants
The next GEMS meeting will be this Thursday, May 25th at 11:30 a.m. We will meet for lunch at the Olive Garden on 2615 S Rochester Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48307.

Cereal For Summer!
Soon our children will be finishing another year of school. For many children this means they may go without enough food to eat. The Presbytery’s Hunger Ministries Program is asking for our help. We will be collecting: breakfast bars, juice boxes, cereal and small boxes of raisins. Every box you donate will be given to families in need by our church partners through their food programs.
Please bring in your items by June 11th. They will be delivered to the Presbytery office on June 12th. Thank you for helping to keep our children fed.

Sunday School Schedule for May
May 21st: Last Sunday of Sunday School until September. Review of year. Teachers: Kelly Ray & Megan Ray

Blood Drive
Our next church blood drive will take place on Monday, July 10th. For donors who wish to donate here on that day, please know that the Red Cross requires 8 weeks between blood donations, so you would not be able to donate at another location after May 14th.

A Big Thank You To All Who Participated In Or Contributed To The 2017 Crop Hunger Walk!
Our Church had seven people walking to support an end to hunger: Pastors Bill and Ann Robertson, Becky and Sam Misuraca, Ruth Fedor, Debbie Leafdale and her daughter Holly. Between the congregation’s donations and other funds solicited by the walkers, $781 was raised for the cause. You were all very generous; thank you!

Metro Detroit Tour de Cure
The Tour de Cure is the signature fundraising event of the American Diabetes Association and our nation’s largest diabetes cycling event, with over 50,000 participants across the country.
