Coffee in the Memorial Garden? Please feel free to enjoy your coffee in the garden after service. The deacons will continue to serve coffee and nibbles from the kitchen. To set up an outdoor coffee station isn’t possible, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your cup of joe there.  —Your Board of Deacons

Adult Ministries 

G.H.A.N.A. (Giving Hope and Nurturing Abroad): Join us on Sunday, August 26, following the second service to hear from a representative from G.H.A.N.A., an organization that seeks to break the cycle of poverty by empowering women. They are currently working to install wells in areas that do not have easy access to water.
Finding Hope GIPC’s grief support group begins on Wednesday, August 29. Books are available the first day of class for $26.00. Please contact Susan Hurst, 734-671-1530, or with questions or to sign up.
Prayer Box for Stacy A prayer box has been prepared for Stacy Loudon; it is in the Narthex. If you would like to write a prayer for Stacy, her family, or whatever is on your heart, please place prayers in the red box, and Sue will deliver them to her. This is a great way to "do something" when you feel there's nothing you can do.

Youth and Children's Ministries 

Grace’s Last Youth Late Night: Grace has a new job here at GIPC but she wants one last big hangout with her youth! This late night is Friday, August 17, from 7pm to 1am. Bring a snack to share and be ready for all our late night games.

Clean seasonal clothing is always needed at the Fort Street Open Door.  Please put items in the closet at the bottom of the stairs by the west entrance door. 
Pray for our Stephen Ministers and their care receivers. James 5:16  “As it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.”
Stephen Ministers provide one-on-one Christian care that is confidential and skilled.
