CORE: Basics of Being Church


Psalm for the Day: Psalm 119:137-144

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your
faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant

now and forever. Amen.

EVENTS

Life Line Screening
Every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes. The American Diabetes Association’s website states that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless steps are taken to stop this disease. Early detection is critical. This is why Clair United Methodist Church is hosting Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings on Thursday, November 17, 2016.

Night Crew Women's Meeting
November 17th @ 6pm, we will meet at the home of Kathy Hessel for some food, fun and fellowship! We will also have a craft. Please note the change in time from previous meetings!
OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE

We will be collecting donations to help those in areas affected by the extreme flooding. Each bucket kit costs $65. You can find more information here. You can give directly to UMCOR online at that link, or make a donation through our church with the note "flood relief". Thank you for being generous.
