Claybanks UMC Family Members,
With us not being able to meet together the Michigan Conference has worship services for us on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter for us to participant online in. This is the communication I received with the needed information for you to participate. Reba and I will be worshiping through these and other worships experiences to make our Holy Week a special, unique and holy time. Mears and Pastor Anne will also have on the web Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter services.
Blessings, stay home and safe,
