ChristNet/Overnight 

February 18-25, 2018

We really need help with laundry during the week, but especially on Sunday, February 25 to wash and fold all bedding and towels.  Please meet at 7:30 am at Suds Laundromat on Allen Rd (by Woodhaven Meijers).

We may have a need for a host on Saturday, February 24, but we don’t know yet. All the dinners for the week and  lunches are being provided by other churches and organizations. We could also use an extra volunteer each night to help with intake and shower supervision from 6-10 pm., and someone else to help upstairs with cigarette break supervision.

There are sign up sheets in the lounge on the piano for you to volunteer or offer to donate cookies for evening snacks, as well as fruit and other food for the breakfast our church will provide every morning, as well as assorted drinks like milk and orange juice.

Please call Judy Howells at 734-771-7921 with any questions, or speak to Pastor Heidi. Thanks!

P.s.
We could really use help to clean up on Sunday, February 25th. Please sign up!
