Adult Ministries

Calling All Gently Used Household Items Three ChristNet people or families are moving into their own places over the next week. We are looking for anything and everything to help furnish their new home. Please contact Tammy Ranck at tamara727@outlook.com. Thank you!

Cereal for Summer
(sponsored by the Detroit Presbytery) Kids who rely on free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch at school often go without enough to eat in the summer. The Cereal for Summer campaign collects cereal so that hungry children around us can start each summer day with breakfast. Half of the cereal we collect will go to the Presbytery, and the other half we will be giving to local Downriver food pantries. Please put your cereal in the box provided at the Crossroads. Thank you for joining this mission project.
 
Adult Ed Have you ever wanted to travel to the Holy Land but you really don't want the hassle of jet lag, packing luggage, the cost of the trip?  Then we have just the class for you! Noted travel guide Rick Steves has a video documentary of his travels to the Holy Land. We can travel along with him and visit Israel and Palestine in the comfort of our own Fireside Room! We will divide the "trip" into two Sundays -- April 15 and April 22. Leave your luggage and passport at home, and come along with us!

Youth and Children's Ministries

Help Needed Isaac Bolton is collecting new or like-new non-religious children’s books for his Eagle Scout project from April 1-May 1. The books will be used to equip a library at Detroit Children’s Hospital. A donation box is at the Crossroads. Thanks for your help!

MUSIC THERAPY AND DEMENTIA
The area of the brain that deals with music is the last to be touched by dementia. Therefore, music can be used to reach people profoundly affected by dementia. This session will teach you how to use music to stimulate memories in your loved one. We will watch clips of dementia patients coming "alive" when presented with their favorite music. We will demonstrate personal music devices that are available for this purpose.
