Hello Family,
This email is to update you on what is happening here at Immanuel UMC.
First, how are you all doing?  This has been a busy week for me, and  I am sure for many of you as well. On Friday evening Gov. Whitmer has extended our State Home, Stay Safe Order until June 12, 2020. I know that many of you are tired of these restrictions. However, I have truly felt the pain in the voices of friends who have lost loved ones. In addition, I have friends that are recovering from the virus as well.  We must be patient and do what we can to stop  the spread of this virus.
As I stated in my impromptu  Facebook Live post last night, the building may be closed but Immanuel UMC is wide open. We are continuing to worship, serve the community, care for one another and even fellowship through social media, video technology, drive by visits, text messages, and sending cards and letters.
Immanuel UMC is wide open, just in a more creative way.
Our leaders met on Sunday May 24, 2020 at 1:00pm to start the process of developing policies, procedures, and a timeline of opening the building once that Gov. Whitmer and Bishop Bard says that we have the green light.  
Our next food pantry distribution will be on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 from 9 am – 11 am.  If you are able to give donations, the Food Pantry team will be at church Tuesday, May 26, 2020  from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm or you can contact Gay Orr or myself to meet you at the church to collect any food you may have.

For I can do everything through Christ,
who gives me strength.
