It’s nearly time for the Deacons’ Christmas Project. Our congregation will have the opportunity to help a family have a more joyous Christmas. You’ll be able to help by purchasing a grocery bag of food, or clothes and/or a toy for a child. This will all start November 17th after church services. Look for the Deacons at a table in the Fellowship Hall.
A number of our members traveled to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint again this year to enjoy their 23rd Empty Bowls fund raiser on Thursday, September 26. A $20.00 donation to the Food Bank entitles a person to select a ceramic bowl created by one of the art classes in Flint; they can take this bowl home. Then they can sample from a variety of soups and breads donated by over 30 area restaurants. We enjoyed the food, fellowship and entertainment! This fundraiser occurs every September; watch for the event next year.
The annual Tailgate Party will be held Sunday, September 29, following the 11:00 service. Come join us and enjoy burgers and hot dogs while cheering for your favorite teams. Show your team colors!
Thank you to Bill and Jean Hermann for hosting us at their beautiful home
on July 24th! We had the opportunity to get to know them a little better
(Bill the jokester and Jean the artist!) and play in their sanctuary of a
yard. Jean makes pretty mean peanut butter cookies too 🙂 We look forward
to more fellowship opportunities with them and other members of the
Can you imagine over 5200 sr. high youth from across the globe celebrating
the love of Jesus? Can you imagine what it really looks like when over
5000 receive communion? Can you imagine what it’s like to worship “youth
style” with that many people? That’s what 27 youth and 3 adults from the
Lake Huron Presbytery had the privilege to experience July 16-20 during
Triennium at Purdue University. Out of the 30, 14 youth and 2 adults were
from Fenton First! Thank you to all who prayed and supported us on our
journey – we had a wonder-full time!!!
A Ladies’ Tea will be held Saturday, May 11, at 1:00 PM. All ladies of the church are invited, and guests are welcome. A brunch menu of pastries, fruit, and finger sandwiches will be served, along with coffee and tea. Please bring your favorite fancy teacup! There is no charge for this event, but please RSVP to Janet Stork (email@example.com).
A Kitchen Health Department Orientation will be held Sunday, April 14, at approximately noon (after coffee hour). The session will cover the Genesee County Health Department rules that the church is obligated to follow in order to avoid being cited by the county. Because of our renovation and changes in the law, we are no longer “grandfathered”, and must abide by all Health Department regulations.
Attendance at one of these orientation sessions is mandatory for members who are intending to work in the church kitchen for events, coffee hour, funeral dinners, etc. Especially all coffee hour team captains should plan to attend. The session will take approximately one hour.
The Chili Cook-Off will be held Sunday, April 7th, following the 11:00 service. Chili chefs wanting to compete should sign up in Fellowship Hall, near the bulletin board.
The congregation is invited to sample all the chilis, along with toppings, cornbread, beverages, and a dessert, and vote for their favorites by making a small contribution. Come and support your favorite chili cook.
