Music is provided by the church’s praise band, Reconciled for the first service, while organ and choir music are featured during the second service. Pastor for the church, the Rev. Jeanne Koughn preaches weekly. On a regular basis, WBET broadcasts each Sunday’s 11:00 a.m. service on its 1230 AM station. The church’s youth group is also re-gathering for fall, with senior and junior high students, who meet each Sunday evening at 5 pm. All are welcome.

During the 2014-15 school year, 99 Sturgis school children received a large plastic bag of food with a voucher for bread, milk, and eggs to take home to their families on Friday.

There are forms at the church for you to fill out to help the Sturgis Helping Hands Backpack Program. It costs $10.00 per student per week to pay for the food, and for 33 weeks of school that amounts to $330.00 for the year. Any donation that you can give will be appreciated.

Hurricane Matthew: A time for prayer

Dear Friends,

We have been closely watching the news about Hurricane Matthew as it has moved from the Caribbean to our nation's shores this morning. We are seeing reports of significant loss of life and damage wrought by this deadly storm and in the coming days we expect to hear more from our partners in Haiti and those along the Atlantic Coast of the United States. 

The Michigan Area is already working with the United Methodist Council on Relief and local mission partners in Haiti to assess damage and develop a plan for how we can best offer assistance to our sisters and brothers there. As information becomes available, we will formulate a caring and compassionate response, which will include an invitation to each of our congregations to take a special offering for disaster relief for those in need. We urge everyone to await guidance from those providing direct assistance to determine how we can best support long-term relief efforts. These will be shared with you via email, our website and Facebook.

In the coming days, I ask that you and your congregations pray for the people of Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, the Bahamas, and those who will continue to be affected by Hurricane Matthew in the Caribbean and along our Atlantic Coast. Let us offer our prayers with deep love, and then may that same love move us to compassionate action in the days ahead.

Grace and Peace,

Bishop David Alan Bard
