Advent by Candlelight

November 23rd from 2-4PM

In keeping with this year's theme "Simply Jesus", we have simplified this beautiful candlelight service. We are no longer asking you to host, decorate and feed a table of 8.  All the tables will be decorated for you.  We only ask that you bring an appetizer or dessert to share for our buffet table, along with a non-perishable food item for our Church pantry.  All men and women of the parish and their guests are invited to this afternoon of music, prayer and fellowship to prepare our hearts and souls for God's wonderful gift, Jesus.  Please contact Claudia Jarvis at 248-885-0323 with any questions.  


 
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
Walter Rauschenbusch
O God, we thank you for this earth, our home; For the wide sky and the blessed sun, For the salt sea and the running water, For the everlasting hills. And the never-resting winds, For trees and the common grass underfoot. We thank you for our senses. By which we hear the songs of birds, And see the splendor of the summer fields, And taste of the autumn fruits, And rejoice in the feel of the snow, And smell the breath of the spring. Grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty; And save our souls from being so blind That we pass unseeing When even the common thorn-bush Is aflame with your glory, O God our creator, Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

 
Christmas Ham Sales!
The Knights Daughters and Columbian Squires will yet again be offering to the parish the famous Dearborn Spiral Sliced Hams for Christmas.  A whole ham, which averages 14 lbs, is $75 and a half is $50.  You will have two weekends to pre-buy your delicious and effortless hams, December 6th & 7th and December 13th & 14th.  You may then pick up your ham the weekend of December 20th & 21st.  Please look for us in the Narthex on these weekends and thank you for your generous support!

Stephen Ministry

God's Love in Action

Pastors are always on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis. There is always a need for ongoing, one-to-one care that pastors can not effectively meet by themselves.

If you are a good listener and a compassionate person, prayerfully consider becoming a Stephen Minister.

Donation Opportunity

Just click on the ICON to donate to our parish. More information will be coming to explain the process.  We thank you in advance!
