Announcements and Stuff

Mission project – Readers To Leaders
Our mission project to raise monies for Readers To Leaders has begun with a craft/gift and adds items on a table in the Fellowship Hall. If you have something of any value that you would like to donate with the proceeds going to our mission, please bring them in and place them on the designated table with prices marked on them. All proceeds from this endeavor will allow us to exceed our goal of $600 for the Michigan area conference Readers To Leaders mission initiative.


Faith On The Lake Saturday, June 24th
Centenary (Pentwater) UMC is offering a way to grow our faith by hosting workshops around Faith and Healing, Grace, Methodist  Theology, and the Beatitudes. For more information see our Announcement Table in the Fellowship Hall.

Old Time Worship Service and Picnic Claybanks UMC – Sunday, August 21st
The Claybanks UMC once again will be conducting an old-time worship service to be held outdoors weather permitting. We will   return to an old style of worship with liturgical hymns, and preaching. We encourage you to dress in styles that would reflect the history of Claybanks United Methodist Church. Following our worship we will have an outdoor cookout with hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, and other great foods provided. This would be a good time to invite family and friends to join us as we celebrate another year in our Claybanks community. As part of our worship service, Art Grumm will be providing for us a few highlights of the history of Claybanks United Methodist Church in service to not only our church members but our community as well.

Women of Faith News
Our May meeting opened with prayer and then we got down to  business! The Ladies of Faith (UMW) discussed the Strawberry   Social and reviewed the amount of surplus berries and biscuits we had leftover last year.  It was decided to purchase six flats and have the June meeting for washing, hulling, chopping, and freezing the berries.  We will ask Leona Twiss if she is able to bake the biscuits again this year. 

Last year’s bake sale went well as everything sold out early! We can certainly present more contributions this year!


Women’s Retreat October 17-19th
The women of our church have been invited to join in with the women of White Lake UMC at this two-day retreat at the St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt, Michigan.  As you can see, there will be guest speakers, and different sessions that you can attend as desired.  Not all the time is scheduled, so there will be times to wander the grounds or be in solitude.  Each attendee will have a single room for sleeping, and a shared bathroom between two rooms.  As noted, the estimated cost is $155 per person.

If you have questions, you can contact Ruth Tuttle at the number posted or get with me for a possible answer. (Cinda Moulds)
