Presbytery to Welcome Church Leader from Niger

The Presbytery of Lake Huron is honored to serve as a host for President Mai-Aiki Kadade of the Evangelical Church in Niger (EERN) in West Africa. President Kadade is in the U.S. as an ecumenical delegate to the PCUSA and Reformed Church General Assemblies. He will itinerate in our presbytery from June 28 to July 3:

Thursday June 28:  Fellowship event with Midland Memorial Church at Dow Diamond. (Ticket required)

Friday June 29:  Breakfast presentation at Midland Memorial Church (9:00 a.m. – RSVP 989-839-6926)

Saturday June 30: Itineration in Detroit Presbytery

Sunday July 1: Presentation and worship at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Bay City (morning worship); Presentation and fellowship for Saginaw area churches, First Presbyterian Saginaw (4 p.m.)

Monday July 2: Presbytery-wide luncheon presentation at First Presbyterian Flint – 11:30 a.m. register at www.presbylh.org

After going through various levels of Bible school and teaching himself French, Kadade became a pastor in the main city in his area and later became an instructor at one of the church’s Bible schools.

In 2014 he was elected president of the church, ushering in a large change of vision and structure, and is currently serving his second term.  Rev. Kadade is also pastor of the oldest church in Niger’s third largest city, Maradi, which is the headquarters of the EERN. He is the father of four children, the youngest of whom has just turned one year old.

President Kadade partners with our mission co-workers Rachel and Michael Ludwig in Niger. We are very fortunate to host him, and I hope many of you will take advantage of this opportunity!

Meals Needed for Reach Set Up Week

Hello all: we are looking for one breakfast and one dinner each of the five days of set up week, the week before the campers all come. For M-W they need to feed 7, for Th and F they must feed 11. Lunches are on their own so no need for lunches.

We are asking several churches to participate, and have so far covered two of the 10 meals.

If you are interested, please contact Winona Williams. Number available upon request.

COME JOIN US FOR THIS JOYOUS SEASON!

March 14th Call to Prayer

March 14 Walkout

Wherever you stand on the issue of gun violence and it’s solutions, standing with our students in the wake of so many school shootings over the years is something I hope we can all do without reservation. 
It is my hope that our church can participate in the bell ringing this event calls us to. I think 4 volunteers would cover it, each taking turns ringing 17 times for a minute, which is once every 3 minutes and 50 seconds, beginning at 10:00am through 10:17am. And if we have more, all the better. We are close enough to the school that those gathered there, and the whole DT area, should be able to hear us easily.
I myself am planning to join the students and others who will participate in this event up at the school.
I have had one volunteer already for ringing the bell. Are there 3 more? If so please email me at PastorDoug@VassarFPC.org.
Please stand with our kids! This simple act will be a powerful witness that says to them “Yes, the Church cares…yes, Jesus cares.”
Shalom, Pastor Doug
