You Make Me Crazy: The Series Let us be honest. If we have not said it to someone we have certainly thought it, "You, are driving me crazy!" We know that good relationships are the key to a long and happy life. Research shows that good relationships help people live longer, deal with stress better, have healthier habits, and have stronger resistance to colds. Yep, that is right good relationships can help you resist the common cold. We all want better relationships and in this series we explore how to develop them and how to keep less than perfect relationships from driving us crazy. (You know you have at least one relationship like that) It is the series we all need so be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join us.

Blessings in a Backpack

It's that time again! We have been asked to help with packing backpacks. The date is March 17th, at Sawdon school from 3p.m. until 5:30 p.m. If you are interested, please contact me via connection card online, email or calling the office number at 517-627-3256. I believe we have several who have offered to be available but now we have a date set. We only have 10 slots available for volunteers to help, so first come first serve. Thanks again

*Women's Study Group - Wednesday Mornings
James Moore has provided a fresh look at how we can serve God and our neighbor in his book "God Was Here and I Was Out to Lunch." Often, we're too preoccupied to notice the needs of those around us and to sense God's ever present grace. Reverend Moore offers easy steps to improve our ability to change our lives from "Me Centered" to "Other Centered."

Please join us for this six-week study at 9:30 a.m. in the parlor. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Lou Hanna at 627-4360 or Sue VanKampen at 627-2360.

*Time of Prayer
We have been created for intimate conversation with God. Come for a time of quiet reflection and prayer with our heavenly Father.

When: Tuesdays
Time: 1:30 - 2:00 p.m.
Where: Church Chapel

"Be joyful always; pray continually." 1 Thessalonians 16-17
