Offering for February 24, 2024

Michigan Advance Partners

When Kelly received a Discovering Revelation handbill in her mailbox, she knew it was from the Lord. “I had been lost for quite a while and needed guidance—and that was my ticket,” she explained. When asked what she appreciated about the meetings she said, “They’re riveting! It’s basically laying out Revelation unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”

She went on to describe how welcoming the church family was: “They’ve made me feel like I’ve been here all my life. People shake my hand, and they take the time to welcome me to their church and I’m not even a member! But I will be by the time I’m done. I’ve found my home.”

Kelly’s testimony is wonderful, but far from unique. Evangelistic outreach takes place across the Michigan Conference each year and time and again, people have the same experience Kelly had at Discovering Revelation.

Today’s offering goes to support Michigan Advance Partners, 33.33% of which supports Conference evangelism. Please give generously to help others like Kelly find their home, too.

Fellowship Dinner Volunteers Needed

Pioneer’s fellowship dinner ministry is alive and well.  There are currently 11 teams sharing in the responsibility to host the dinners throughout the year.  But the ministry needs more teams as well as individuals who are willing to join the current teams.

If you are a part of a small group or Sabbath School class that is not currently active in this important ministry, please consider becoming involved.  The commitment is not great.  Current teams serve from two to four times a year.  And if you would like to join a currently active team, let us know and you will directed to a team.

For more information, or to volunteer, dial 269-281-2345, and enter Fellowship Dinner. You will be able to enter you contact information there, and we will be in contact with you.
