CELEBRATION OF THE REFORMATION | The 500th Anniversary Worship Service

The Michigan District has scheduled a Reformation Worship service at the Breslin Center in Lansing October 15, 2017. The Circuit is looking into charting a bus for this event. Because this is a Sunday many of the Pastors of the Circuit will not be able to go, however I know it will be a great experience for everyone who attends.  You can find more information on the district’s website.

ER Education Day Line Up

*About the International Travel Club (copied from their pdf downloaded from Deanna Sayer’s website)….

So what is this club you are supporting by participating in the Elk Rapids Education Day? This is a new club formed by high school teacher, Deanna Sayer, to give local students an educational opportunity to travel and learn about cultures first hand. Eleven students will be traveling to China on March 16th for 14 days, with an intensive study of Mandarin. Our everyday lives are intertwined with Chinese influence, yet we know so little about their culture. This trip will give our youth insight, generate interest, and create global thinkers closing cultural gaps and building international relationships!
Thank you for supporting our education, while strengthening yours.
Sincerely,
The International Travel Club
