One of the things that we will be doing this year is making Fleece Blankets. In order to do this, we will need some fleece for the blankets. Please drop your donation off in the bin at the entrance of the church. We need two pieces of fleece that are two and a half yards long for each blanket.
If you have any questions or need more information,
please call Christian Service at 248-476-7677, ext. 204.

Happy Halloween

Scripture & Candy Correlations  
for HALLOWEEN   


Here's a twist on "Trunk or Treat". . .

Families are asked to distribute candy. Some even decorate their trunks or have music playing. So here's a twist - how about decorating your trunk to depict, or even retell a scripture story. Be as creative as you wish - come up with your own candy and story ideas or use one from our list below. If there is duplication of a Bible story, the kids will enjoy the different renditions. It's your choice and we'll just be glad to see you there.

Below are suggestions for corresponding scripture for Halloween candies.

Bible Story

Creation
Adam & Eve
Joshua & The Wall of Jericho
Fruits of The Holy Spirit
Using Your Talents
Tower of Babylon
The Holy Family
3 Brothers & The Fiery Furnace
Story of Ruth
Noah
Moses

Candy

Milky Way / Mars
Caramel Apple Suckers
Nestle Crunch
Fruit Snacks
Smarties
Snickers or Tootsie Rolls
Three Musketeers
Red Hots
Baby Ruth
Gushers Fruit Snacks or Twix Bar
Pencils ("So, let it be written...")

Garden News...

School has started, a few trees have some color in their leaves, and the blankets are on our beds... yep, fall is here!

Your garden committee has bugun sprucing up the church grounds for Fr. Kris' Installation Mass on October 8th.

The next step is planning the Fall Clean-up 2017!
So mark calendars for Saturday, November 4th and Saturday, November 11th. We are hoping that you can volunteer for ONE of the days, being conscious of other activities and family obligations. Watch for more information in the church bulletin, "The Voice".
