This month's Newsletter Article
The Inclusion Ministry program at First Church has been busy this month. The Holy Spirit has taken hold and got it us to explore and create new adventures in our relationship with God and one another.
“In God’s Image” Dinner and Worship
We celebrated our second-year anniversary on October 5, with a blessing of the animals. We had a wonderful time at worship and had a special guest, Vicki, from of Pet Adoption Alternative of Warren (PAAW). A special thank you to all that gave a donation to PAAW, I know how much it was greatly appreciated. Thank you to the men's group for helping to grill hamburgers and hotdogs and with clean up. Picture was made possible by Marc Rozman…Michael Jezowski with my Daisy dog! More picture will be added to the Inclusion Ministry Gallery on the First Church website!
On November 2nd, we will have our Thanksgiving celebration. We have so many gifts God has given us and how we should be thankful for. Our dinner will be provided for by Wingstop on Dequindre and 12 Mile Road. We thank them for their generosity. If you'd like to join us to help with worship, crafts, or dinner please let me know.
Inclusion Ministry has been working with local businesses to encourage their help in donating a meal or part of a meal for our once a month dinner and fellowship. Our program is grant funded and any way we can stretch our dollar, we would like to do so. If anyone is interested in sponsor a dinner or part of a dinner, please see Marijo.
Stars of “In God’s Image”
This month the stars of the Inclusion Ministry program are the students and staff from Cousino and Sterling High Schools. Every week on Tuesday and Thursday the students from these two high schools come and clean the church and do other jobs needed at the church. One Tuesday, the students from Cousino High School assembled the Stewardship packets you received in the mail. The students really take pride in the work they do.
Village of Warren Glenn
The Bible Study at the Village of Warren Glenn based on the movie “God’s Not Dead” concluded on October 26th. The residents have requested a re-showing of the movie which will take place on November 2nd at 1 pm. All are welcomed!
On October 20th, students from Cousino High School came to the Village of Warren Glenn for breakfast and a movie “Inside Out.” The students and residents enjoyed the morning together and before leaving had a chance to ask each other questions about their lives. Some of the amazing connections made at this breakfast, brought the teachers to tears. Next month, on November 17th at 9 am, the group decided to play BINGO! All you early risers, come and have some fun with us. Tim Horton’s Coffee is available for the grown-ups!
Come join us for pizza and a movie night on November 10th at 4:30 pm. The movie will be shown in the upstairs activity room, right off the main elevator. We will be watching the “Nativity” in preparation for the Advent Season.
Communion Service at Warren Glenn on November 5th at 12:15 pm and will have a worship service on November 19th, also at 12:15 pm.
