Christian Service

"Christ In Us"  Serving the needs of others...
 

NOTICE: Based on the current circumstances and with a profound desire to protect the health and well-being of all, we continue to determine how and when we can modify and/or resume our various ministries and programs. Meanwhile, below is information on our typical programs and potential start dates.
 

On the Horizon: Upcoming Events and Future Activities

  • The Bedding Ministry remains very active - we are the only parish still providing this ministry 
     

Advent Giving Tree

Returning from its long summer nap, it's the Advent Giving Tree! See it sitting in its traditional Gathering Space location? This year the Advent Giving Tree has a new twist: We are monetarily supporting Livingston County Catholic Charities, the Fowlerville Family Impact Center and parish families in need.

Instead of gift requests hanging on the tree, you will find envelopes asking you to prayerfully consider a donation in support of these fine organizations and families in our prayer community.

  • Shop and Share - we are still in calculation mode, so don't lose heart! as soon as the final tonnage (!) is available, you wil be among the first to know. Now, if you forgot to return your bag, no issues! Just get it here and we will get it delivered and counted in the final tally. Bouquets of Thanks to everyone!
  • Baby Bottle Boomerang - Holy Pocket Change! Our Save Life coordinators, Dana and Ray Carignan, pumped iron in preparation of transporting those bottles to the Brighton Pregnancy Help Clinic. And good thing they did! Scads of baby bottles are ready to be delivered. As soon as we learn the $$ grand total, we will let you know! Thank you for supporting the choice of life with your generosity!
     

Gobble, Gobble!

It's not too soon to think about Thanksgiving! If you know of a family who would like to receive a food basket, please call Christian Service no later than November 10. The Little Red Wagon is accepting food donations if you'd like to bolster our pantry. Some suggestions: peanut butter/jelly, mac 'n cheese, canned green beans and mushroom soup, cereal, pasta and pasta sauce. If you or your family would like to donate a turkey, let us know ASAP. 
 

Hope in a Box: Need for the month of November: Dish Soap.
 

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for November: Artificial Intelligence: We pray that the progress of robotics and artificial intelligence may always serve humankind.
 

Office Hours

Christian Service Fall Hours: For the month of September the office will be on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM until 12:00 Noon.  The Christian Service email account [email protected] will be checked several times a day.  Telephone messages will be monitored on a staggered schedule, but at least once a week. Call the parish office at 517-223-8684 and ask for ext. 312. Please remember: Christian Service is an all-volunteer ministry so it could take a bit of time until we get back with you.

Please contact us if you or someone you know is in need of assistance before things get out of hand.

We are here to assist by listening, giving suggestions and/or direction for avenues of assistance, and helping in other possible ways.
