Spring Clean-Up/Hot Dog Roast
We’ll be holding our annual yard clean-up and hot dog roast on Thursday, April 20th. We’ve always had a good turnout and have been able to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time thanks to so many volunteers. So bring your lawn tools and hot dogs/chips/cookies etc. in the late afternoon and join in the fun as we work together to care for the church God has entrusted to us. The Munson House yard clean-up will be held the following Thursday, April 27th. In case of bad weather on either evening, the events will be rescheduled.
Look at the fun events the ladies have planned for us this summer. More information will be coming for each event as the time grows nearer. April is our month for the butterflies at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Bring your friends and come join in the fun.

There has been some discussion about having a churchwide yard sale – some are for it and others not so much. We’d like to know how much interest there is among you. If you’re interested in helping to put on a churchwide yard sale please sign the sign-up sheet on the back table. If there’s enough interest, a committee will be formed and we’ll move forward with the project. Thank you!!
