Life Line Screening Returns on September 17
There is a simple, convenient way for you to get preventive health screenings and learn your risk for stroke, heart disease and other chronic conditions. These painless screenings go beyond your regular checkup to identify dangerous plaque buildup or blockage, a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease. We are pleased to host Life Line Screening, who will be on site on 9/17/2019 to conduct these valuable screenings. These 5 vital screenings are offered for only $149 and take 60-90 minutes to complete. If you register today, you will receive a $10 discount. Register by calling toll free 1-888-653-6441, visit, or text the word “circle” to 797979.

Book Group
Book Group will meet again on Wednesday, September 25 at 7:00 p.m. We’ll be discussing The Woman in the Window by Dan Mallory. All are welcome!

GEMS: God’s Elegant Mature Servants
We welcome you back to GEMS and hope everyone had an enjoyable summer! Join us on September 26 at 12:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. Carol Bacak-Egbo, Historian and Project Advisor, Oakland County Parks, will talk about a significant historic Oakland County farm. She will end with information on an outhouse pit they tried to locate at the former Niles Tavern in Troy. The menu will be Swedish meatballs, salads, vegetables and desserts. Please see the 2 sign-up sheets on the bulletin board in the narthex; sign up if you plan to attend, and if you would like to bring a dish to pass. We look forward to seeing you and a friend!
