Giving Tree - This Christmas season the church will be adopting 1 family and purchasing items for the homeless. Please take an ornament from the tree in the foyer, buy the gift that is written on that ornament, wrap the gift, attach the ornament (slightly) to the outside of the package, and put the gift back under the tree. Throughout the year, we have many that stop in the church looking for help for gas and grocery needs. We have put some ornaments, that are for gift cards, to help meet those needs. Please have all gifts back to the church by Sunday, December 17th. Please prayerfully consider how you can help during this giving season. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service - Please come and join us for Christmas Eve on Sunday, December 24th at 6pm. The service will be one of music and quiet reflection on the priceless gift God has given all of us in His Son, Jesus. God's plan was that the promised King would take the form of a baby and change the world, not with might, but with the power of love. Come and bring your family!
MATCHING GRANT - In October, we had a member of our congregation agree to give a matching grant for the Building Campaign. They have agreed to match dollar for dollar up to $30,000 by April 2018. That means for every dollar of NEW MONEY that comes in, they will give a dollar. New Money is defined as New Pledges, increases on Old Pledges and/or cash. So far, we have received $16,989 towards the match. This leaves $13,011 to reach our $30,000. This is exciting news and God gets all the glory for it!
2018 Haiti Mission Trip - The Lapeer FM Church will be taking a mission trip to Haiti in June/July of 2018. The team will be going to Haiti to work with Water Project Haiti. Applicants under the age of 18 need to be at least 15 years of age and going into their sophomore year of high school to be considered. All applicants must complete the application materials, including the reference forms. Forms are located at the Ministry Board.
