Generosity Plan 2020 - January/February

The Mikey and Me generosity plan goes live following the Mission moment presentation January 26.

Then God said, "let us make humanity in our image to resemble us so that they may take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and all the crawling things on earth.  ~Genesis 1:26
One hour later...
Thank you.
Late last Spring, Mike Hay offered to finance a home in Jackson in order for willing hearts to offer their time and talent so that it might be resold at a profit.  A portion of the profit will benefit the children who participate in the Mentor2Youth program in Ypsilanti.  The other portion of the profit will benefit the youth of this church.  
There are four small bedrooms upstairs, a dining room, living room and entryway on the first floor.  The basement needs a bit of demo work as well.
Work to be done in each room:  Remove carpet.  Patch and sand any marks/holes in the wall.  Prime the darker colored rooms and paint. 
I plan to ask groups in this church to adopt a single room that the work is manageable and time invested is minimal but most beneficial. 
Are you ready to make a difference? 
Mark your calendars!  At the Chelsea fair parade, a few of the Special Olympic athletes shared that their fan base is quite small... okay, their parents attend.  This is our chance to support them from the stands. See the note below.

Middle School and High School Food Donations 

If you are running late, just let me know.  Otherwise, I run to the bakery to make sure there is something on the island when they arrive.  Thank you for your generosity.  It truly does fuel the time together.
