Current Outreach Opportunities
Thank you to everyone who came out to work on cleaning up our church grounds. Spreading our work out over several days allowed us to maintain respectful distance, while still getting a lot of work done. We are proud of our church grounds and are prepped for when we open for in-person services on Sunday, June 12.

“You can still go out and give blood. We’re worried about potential blood shortages in the future. Social distancing does not have to mean social disengagement.”
U.S. Surgeon General
There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors and blood drive hosts to maintain a sufficient blood supply for weeks to come. In times of crisis, the Red Cross is fortunate to witness the best of humanity as people roll up a sleeve to help those in need. We greatly appreciate the generosity of the public to keep hospital shelves stocked during this uncertain time.

In early March we hosted 30 homeless men in our building through MCREST program. We served them selflessly as a church and it was a beautiful representation of Christ.
Following that week MCREST has decided for the safety of the men and the churches involved, to keep them in a motel for the next 5 weeks.
Because of this decision, the program’s expenses have gone up exponentially. I know some of you all have asked for ways to help out during this crisis. Currently, they are in need of food, laundry detergent pods, quarters for the laundry machines, any donations to help pay for the cost of the lodging. If anyone would like to help out, they have more information at their website: MCREST
Please continue to pray for everyone involved in this program as they continue to serve in this program in the midst of this global crisis.

Kids Against Hunger is an organization that provides fully nutritious food to impoverished children and families around the world…and around the corner. 15.3 million children under 18 in the United States live in households where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life.
Hosting an Event with Kids Against Hunger is simple. Their mobile team comes to us! They bring the food, we supply the "man" power. We need 250 volunteers to give 2 hours of time to provide emergency food for those in need.
We'll gather in our Multi Purpose Room, set up tables for our assembly lines, and pack and pray over these meals.
Thank you all who came together to help the Sterling Heights community. It's just one example of how we live out our 'strength of real community' value.
Reading Coaches needed
partnership with Schwarzkoff elementary
We are coordinating with Schwarzkoff Elementary to provide Reading Coaches for their students. The goal is to help improve student's reading skills by having them read aloud to someone on a weekly basis. See how just one hour a week can have an impact in the life of a child, the school and our community.
