HIGHER GROUND - 2016 Fall Session
The psalmist wrote, "Lead me to the rock that is higher than I." (61:2b) God is that rock!
On Thursday evenings from September 22 through November 3 we will be hosting Higher Ground. Higher Ground is designed to encourage and support families with ideas and information while enhancing the emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical balance of each life. Classes may include Parenting, Cooking (limited number of participants), Managing your Finances, Emergency Preparedness and Life Lessons.
The evening schedule will be Registration & Dinner 5:00 - 6:00 pm, Classes 6:15 - 7:30 pm. The evening ends with families "shopping" at the Higher Ground Store, using points earned in the class they attend. Children will have their own special area to shop as well.
If you are interested in volunteering at the Higher Ground Family Center or would like more information, please contact Pastor Becky at (231) 796-7771 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Church in a Cafe' is held on Monday evenings at 6:00 pm at the Wild Rose Cafe located at 708 Maple Street in Big Rapids. Our congregation, Wesley House, and the Big Rapids Parish hold these new worship service's to reach out to those who feel uncomfortable in a church setting. We are excited to see how God will use these service's to bless others as they experience God's love and grace in an informal but meaningful way.
