Dear Members in Christ,
There’s not much to report this month. The furnace has been fixed and is set to go for the heating season which will be here before we know it.
The 7 pm Wednesday night service has been moved to 4 pm. During Advent, we will have a 4 pm and a 7 pm service and then based on attendance decide if we will do the same during Lent. We also intend to have a 4 pm and 7 pm service on Thanksgiving Eve.
We are starting to look at expenses in terms of what to put into next year’s budget. Rick is busy getting quotes for insurance for the church. If your group is thinking of needing money for a project you may be planning for next year, please let us know so we can put it in the budget.
We are still waiting for parts to update some plumbing issues the Blumfield-Reese Water Authority asked us to do. This was all a result of the water issue that happened in Flint in the past and is happening throughout the state and not just here.
We will be looking for snow removal quotes in the near future. If you know of someone that does that type of work, have them submit a quote to the church for consideration.
And lastly, just a reminder that if you were exposed to Covid and were in church, please let the church know so we can let members know that there may be an issue.

We will begin with dinner at 6 p.m. followed by the Bible Study. Please feel free to bring a friend.
