ST. JOHN'S 2nd ANNUAL CAMPOUT

Families have a choice of tent, camper and/or cabin camping for a weekend in the summer. The date is yet to be set (considering middle of July), as is the campground (between two). However, in order to nail down where the adventure will take place, which regardless will be within 2 hours from the church; we need to see how many families are very interested in taking part. This is to determine how many sites would be needed, type of site and/or how many cabins.  Once we know the numbers and needs, we can determine which campground would accommodate us the best and the rates related to sites and/or cabins.

The early plan of the weekend is:
- arrive on Friday for the weekend with departure on Sunday.
- planned group activity - Saturday, which would be a potluck cookout with an outdoor service led by Minister Enoch.
- activities vary and will be more specific once the campground is decided on, but would include swimming, mini golf, fishing, game room and children craft times.
You will have the option to hang out in groups or just enjoy the outdoors with your individual family.

To make sure we don’t miss reservation windows we need to receive your interest to include your number of campers and whether you would be camping with a tent, camper and/or cabin. Please direct your participation interest to Kelly Barhorst at kellybarhorst.stjohn@gmail.com or (586) 842-9783. The deadline for expressed interest is March 24th. We should have rates and more details the last week of March following deadline. Interested families will be contacted with the details to include rates, dates and campground to finalize their participation prior to reservations being made.

 

FUNDRAISER FOR MCREST

We are holding a fundraiser for MCREST. It is a discount card to various restaurants in New Baltimore and Chesterfield/Macomb. The cards are $10 each and we get $6 for every card sold. They pay for themselves after you use them a couple of times. They also make great stocking stuffers. There are cards available in other areas. If you would like to purchase one or help sell them please contact Nancy Steffens at 586-994-6720.

 

SPAGHETTI DINNER

The spaghetti dinner takes place every second Saturday of the month 4:00-7:00 p.m. in our Educational Building.  There is a free-will offering for this meal. 

The menu includes spaghetti and one other entrée, bread, salad and dessert.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

 

HELP VETERANS IN MICHIGAN

We are collecting extra yarn to make lap blankets. Pieces, half and full skeins, any color will be accepted. We cannot accept wool yarn since it is not washable. Please drop off yarn at the church office.
