Stewardship Reflection 

Stewardship 2"A checkbook is a theological document. It will tell you who and what you worship."
~Billy Graham

"If you haven't got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble."
~Bob Hope

We invite you to prayerfully consider how you might live life with an attitude of abundance through your commitment of time, talent, and treasure.  All pledge cards will be presented at the altar on Sunday, November 26, as an act of worship and in response to all that God has given us.

Diaper Pantry Closing 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of the St. Michael and All Angels Diaper Pantry. We no longer have the finances or staffing required to continue this ministry, so we will give thanks for all we have accomplished and begin the process of discerning God's call to a new ministry. We are grateful to our friends at All Saints for sharing their space with us and to all those who have supported this valuable ministry over the years. The pantry will be open Saturday, November 18 and December 16 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We will then be transferring all of our remaining supplies to the Diaper Closet located at St. Mark's Lutheran Church (11151 US Hwy 12, Brooklyn, MI). Their pantry will be open on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  

We will be having a celebration of all that God has helped us to accomplish through the Diaper Pantry ministry at our service on Sunday, December 31.
