KIDS AGE 3 to HIGH SCHOOL!  Please joins us for Sunday School at 9:00 am during the School Year!  (May 14, 2017 will be the last day of Children's Sunday School this year.)    A great time of learning, fellowship, singing, and meeting new friends.....we look forward to seeing you!  

Confirmation Class

Confirmation is Preparation for the Adventure of Faithfulness! Those who follow Jesus know that every happening near us, around us, and with us…that’s God providing us with new and exciting experiences. Even when it seems like the ‘same old, same old,’ the Holy Spirit of God is nudging us to live life large, with energy and abundance. When our children reach their early teens, we Methodists take time to prepare them for understanding God in their lives more fully. We encourage them and prepare them for a life of faithfulness. We hope that they will want to Confirm the covenant relationship that was given to them at their Baptism.

Starting after Easter, Pastor will begin classes for young people born in 2002 and 2003. This will be a 30-week process…ending at the beginning of Advent in late November, with the ceremony of Confirmation during Sunday morning worship. If you are interested in having a young person in your household (who will be 14 or 15 in 2017) participate in this process, please contact Pastor Geri, (906)774-2545. Please pray for the youth and their families during this special time.

 The Adult Sunday school   Meets during the School year on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. to talk with each other about God and the church and how it is that we can best serve as disciples of Jesus.  The class will take a break for the summer--May 21 will be the last class for this season.  You are welcome to join us!  Please call the office, 774-2545, if you would like a book and more information about the class.

  Graduation Sunday will be celebrated on May 21 at the 10:30 service, and this year we want to include a celebration of college graduates, community college program finishers, and any other educational completion event in your life. Please call the office, 774-2545, and let us know the good news of your achievement, so we can rejoice with you and thank God for your gifts and efforts.

Graduating High School Seniors, please submit to the church office by May 7 five or six photos of yourself through the years, and also tell us of your activities in high school and your plans for the future, which we will publish in the bulletin and Tower.

Applications for the 2017 Marie Bleecker Scholarships for graduating high school seniors are on the wall across from the church office. Scholarships are $250. 

Cameron Mulka was the 2017 recipient of the Marie Bleecker Scholarship.   Good work, Cameron and Congratulations!
