Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Congregation will take place today, immediately following worship. Several topics will be discussed, including the January, 2016-June, 2017 financial year, as well as the future options for our church that were presented on August 13th. We hope you can make it!

Movie Morning Returns!
Movie Morning is back (after a summer recess) with a blockbuster movie! Join us in the Sanctuary at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 13th for “La La Land” starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. While waiting for their big breaks, two L.A. dreamers, a suavely-charming, soft-spoken jazz pianist and a brilliant, vivacious playwright, attempt to reconcile aspirations and relationships in a magical old-school romance. Stone won an Academy Award for her performance. We will also have trivia and popcorn. Come join in all the fun.

Faith Communities Coalition
On Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 6:15-8:30 p.m., Oakland County Faith Communities Coalition hosts The Honorable Mary Ellen Brennan at Kirk in the Hills, 1340 W. Long Lake Road, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302. Judge Brennan will share how her faith, her family and her experiences as an adoptive mom have inspired her to help make a positive difference in the youth she encounters in her Oakland County court settings.

September Mission Project — Presbyterian Ingathering
There is a Board in the Narthex with items Presbytery has assigned our Church to provide for the 2017 Ingathering of items requested by some 30+ local agencies helping the less fortunate. Please consider purchasing one or more items indicated on the board. If you decide to participate, please take a tag off the board, purchase the item and return it to church by September 24th with the tag from the board attached and noting the value or price paid for each item. Your generosity is appreciated.
