Ramadan Iftar Dinner

CWCC will be hosting a special Iftar (break fast) dinner with the Turkish American Society of Michigan on Thursday evening, July 30.  TASMich has offered to bring dinner to us so we can share with them in breaking their fast.  We were blessed on Pentecost Sunday by their gift of Noah's Pudding.  Now, we will continue to build relationships around the dinner table.

The event begins at 8 pm with a program and fellowship. Dinner will be served at sundown, and will end around 10 pm.  To RSVP send a message to the office. We need to provide a count by June 27.  Please join us!

Disciples, UCC make joint statement on refugees

We unequivocally deplore and mourn the senselessness that leads people to believe that violence will bring peace and justice, much less honor or blessing. Whether carried out by non- or quasi-state actors in the name of an ideology or religion, or by states in the name of national security, we have seen repeatedly that the largest numbers of victims are innocent of any crime, and undeserving of any such fate. We are not blind to the real threats that exist in our world. We have seen attacks and assaults perpetrated by individuals and groups, states and coalitions take the lives of many, and destroy the hopes and dreams, aspirations and futures of many more. We, too, desire safety and to be free of fear.
