Consecration Sunday, May 21st
On Sunday, May 21st, we will be dedicating our pledges during worship for the upcoming fiscal year which begins July 1st. Worship will be followed by a celebration lunch in fellowship hall. Plan now to attend services on this important Sunday, and to stay for the lunch provided by the finance committee. Over the next few weeks we will be having several “minute for stewardship” speakers during worship, sharing their thoughts on the meaning of giving and sharing God’s gifts.

Summer English Workshop: A June Mission here at church
Volunteers who worked with the Summer English Workshop last summer had such fun teaching our foreign-born neighbors English…American style. Most of those volunteers want to do it again. But, this summer, we will need more volunteers as we are offering two weekly class sessions each of the four weeks in June.

The Lesson Guide Sheets used on Saturday will be repeated on the following Tuesday. We need your help for at least one day/week for the 4 weeks. But, if you can volunteer to teach both days of the week, that is GREAT! See Karen Lake if you have questions.

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.

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.

Movie Morning, Wednesday, May 10th
It’s a movie followed by lunch! First, let’s meet at MJR at 100 E. Maple Road in Troy to see Going in Style. Previews start at 10:20 a.m. It’s the story of lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin) who lose their pension and decide to rob a bank. Very entertaining. Then it’s on to Shield’s Pizza at 1476 W. Maple Road in Troy (just west of Crooks). We’ll meet there at about 12:15 p.m. for lunch.

Of course, there will be trivia at the restaurant. Hope you can join us!

GEMS: God’s Elegant Mature Servants
The next GEMS meeting will be on 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.
