The Parish Nurses are available to check your blood pressure every 4th Sunday after the worship service. If you feel you need your blood pressure checked on any other Sunday, please feel free to ask any of the nurses (Dorothy McClure, Deborah Quarles and Elder Ellis Threadcraft).
During these difficult times dealing with COVOD-19 and people being out of work, we are in need of donations. The SOTC Outreach Ministry is collecting gently used clothing, toiletries and food (nonperishable and no glass). Items can be placed in the labeled container in the Narthex.
For more information contact Direct questions to Jackie Banks or Pastor Dupre.
Through a donation, the Board of Trustees now has an electric wheelchair that is in good shape. Shadow of the Cross members can borrow it for a short time as needed. If you are thinking of taking someone to a park or zoo or somewhere else, it will be a blessing to have. Contact the church office to make arrangements.
Merlin Fields leads the Saturday intercessory prayer session and the small group study that instructs attendees on how to be everyday missionaries, by working through the Joining Jesus on His Mission book. The group meets at 11 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month in the church. The next opportunity is March 14.
Body, Soul & Spirit Ministry continues to spearhead a tee shirt sale as part of Shadow of the Cross’s spirit wear – this is an ongoing endeavor.
The shirts are $15, with a discount for a family with 4 or more members, and for toddlers. Proceeds go to the church. Please see any member of the Body, Soul & Spirit Ministry for more information or call the church office (248-474-0675).
Order forms for the tee shirts are also located on the table in the Narthex.
Our Greeting Card Station is located in the Narthex on the table, for your convenience. They are free to members and visitors to use as needed.
You might have forgotten your greeting card, or left it at home, and it’s someone’s birthday! Or grab one to send a get-well wish.
All we ask is that next time you are out, please pick up a card to replace the one you used. We also accept extra cards, in all categories.
The Visually Impaired Outreach Ministry has expanded into Oakland County.
Every fourth Thursday of each month, the group comes together for Bible Study, lunch and fellowship, in the lunchroom, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Volunteers are needed.
To all my beautiful Sunday School Students. I miss being with you guys so much. I know there is a lot going on. Let’s try to stay calm and stay connected to the Lord, because we know that it’s all in God’s hands. Also let us stay connected to each other. Please read this short story and complete the worksheet attached, maybe it will help to ease our minds. Love you all, Ms. Profit.
First, donations are needed to purchase more children’s and Arabic Bibles.
Second, you can assist in setting out Bibles for people to take at various events here at Shadow of the Cross.
Third, you can take these Bibles and give them to people you know who may need them, in your own personal outreach efforts.
Fourth, if you see a new visitor at one of our worship services, offer them a Bible (they are located on the shelf in the back of the sanctuary).
Finally, you can pray for the people who receive the Bibles.
These Bibles have labels inside that provide information about our services and will be relabeled with our new name and new website address, when available.
So become an active part of this ministry.
