COMPASSION EVANGELICAL HOSPITAL is in a critical financial situation. Due to the poor economy in Guinea and patients avoiding clinics and hospitals for fear of catching Ebola, hospital revenue is dramatically down. Presently, the WHO estimates that we likely will not achieve control or plateau of the epidemic in West Africa for another 8 or 9 months; the worst case scenarios are catastrophic. To help, you can mail a check to: Compassion Evangelical Hospital, P.O. Box 870, Southfield, MI 48037

QUILTING DAY - Can you tie a knot? If so you are qualified to help put together quilts! Each 2nd Wednesday of the month, we meet in the overflow area at 1 p.m. to put together quilts which are distributed locally as well as around the world. We have MANY which need putting together. Please stop by and help out! MISSING! One of the quilt racks has gone astray. If you know its location, please call the church office. Thank you.

VBS Looking ahead to VBS this summer! "Jesus is the Rock" will be our theme. We will hopefully be making garden stepping stones as one of our projects. We need your help.

If you have anything you think might work, please talk to Lori Smith or bring them in to the OCC storage room. We will also need cement, glass marbles, shells, rocks, etc. for our designs. If you can help in any way, we would really appreciate it! Also looking for a leader or helpers with this special project! This would be a really special memento of VBS for the children! DOES ANYONE KNOW where we could rent or borrow a portable rock climbing wall or inflatables? Maybe you know someone who would like to financially sponsor one of these items? Talk to Lori Smith if you have any ideas!

8God saved us by his grace when we believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. - Ephesians 2:8-9 - New Living Translation (NLT)

In this age of being able to practically shop for everything online, sometimes it is necessary for the 'hands-on' experience of actually picking up and examining an item. This is particularly true when considering a new Bible. With so many translations and styles, it is easier to browse through a selection before making a choice.

Living Water Christian Store -
- has a large variety of items to choose from
- is locally owned and managed
- is the closest Christian store
