Be the Church— Be The Church is a one day district community service project to be done in Flint on Saturday, April 25th. The day will include teams of 6-8 boarding houses, distributing food and infant clothing. To be on a boarding team all you need to do is either help carry tools and wood, cut with a saw, or put it nails.  Men, we will work hard and move fast, but we need as much help as we can get! This project often includes children, teens, senior adults and ladies so don’t let the work load scare you away. We will be having a brief planning meeting after morning worship on Sunday, March 29th in room 9 for all interested participants, or talk to Pastor Scott for details.
