REAP Wants You!

REAP has been doing mission sewing, knitting, and crocheting for many years.  We have several members that come to meetings and we have a few members that work at home and then bring their items in to be distributed to our clients.  We want our membership to grow and are inviting you to come to be a part of our group.  No matter how experienced you are in any of the crafts, we would love to have you join us.  We all learn new skills from each other to add to our bag of tricks.

We meet in the first room (south) in the upstairs Sunday School hallway.  For the summer we are going to try some new meeting times.  They are as follows:  June 20th from 9am - 12pm; July 7th from 12:30pm - 3:30pm; July 18th from 9am - 12pm; August 4th from 12:30pm - 3:30pm; and August 15th from 9am - 12pm.  You don't have to attend all the meetings or stay for the whole time, just whatever fits into your schedule.  We have a great time and would love to have you join us.  See you in June!!!!


Post Office Food Drive

We are in need of volunteers to help at the church with sorting the food Saturday, May 10, to help at the Post Office and drivers to bring the food to the church.  There is a sign-up sheet on the Parlor hallway counter.  Lunch will be provided for all those who work.


Officer Appreciation Sunday

Please join us in the Parlor following the 11 a.m. service for a recognition reception for the Deacons and Elders whose term ended in 2013.


General Assembly

We have secured a 56 passenger bus to attend the opening ceremony of the General Assembly on Saturday, June 14, 2014.  We plan to be on the road by 6:30am – arrive at COBO Center in Detroit by 10am – opening ceremony at 11am – free time in the afternoon – board the bus at 5pm – arrival in Niles approximately 8pm.  At a certain date, we’ll ask folks from other churches if we haven’t filled the bus.  Cost - $35.  Please let Fran know if you’d really like to attend and need help with the fee.  We encourage your attendance as this is the first time in many years that General Assembly has been held this close to home.


Fish Banks

If there's a colorful fish in your pew, could you please pass it along?  Your pocket change will bring great relief to someone in distress.  Paper contributions can go into envelopes also in pews.  Thanks from Missions and Outreach Team.
