          Student Ministries Announcement:  High School Youth Group will begin on September 8th.  Middle School Youth Group will begin on September 18th.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you in the fall!

         Family Faith Formation Tip:  Give an anxious child a tangible reminder that God is with him or her.  Maybe it’s a special bracelet or necklace, or even a small “pocket stone” with the word “Peace” written on it.  Having something meaningful to hold on to in anxious moments can help a lot.

         Attention Ladies:  You are all invited to join us for breakfast at Mr. B’s  on Thursday, September 12th at 9:00 AM.  Please RSVP to Myrna Johnson 231-759-4315 by September 9th.  

         Copies of the Today Devotional for September/October are available at the Information Desk in the narthex.  Pick up a copy this morning for use in your daily prayer and devotional times.  Large print copies are also available.
