SPAGHETTI DINNER UPDATE...Plans are progressing for the Fund-Raiser dinner for Sue and Paul Stanifer, to be held April 28, 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. Many have volunteered to work and/or provide baked goods. THANK YOU FOR THAT! More workers are still needed, and baked goods as well; a dessert will be served with the dinner and a Bake Sale will also take place. (Baked goods do not have to be homemade.) If able to help, see or call Judie Wiseman 734-241-3466.
 
Church Directory Update – How long has it been since your family was professionally photographed? Plan now and you will have a portrait to be proud of. The photographer recommends wearing bright colors as the most photogenic (and he also suggests avoiding prints and plaids). Skim through the sample directories at the appointment table to see how other families have coordinated their outfits.
