Community Announcements:

Life Chain – Sunday, October 3!  Mark your calendars, and join the Life Chain, from 1:30-2:30 pm, at the corner of Cedar and State Streets in Big Rapids.  Life Chain is a peaceful, prayerful public witness, standing in honor of over 60 million lives lost to abortion, praying for our nation, for people in crisis situations and for an end to abortion.  It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children, and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death.  For more information, contact Kathie at 231-796-3931.

Our Brothers Keeper Shelter will have an open house on September 29, from 4:00-6:00 pm.
The public is invited to attend.  (405 S. 3rd Ave. in Big Rapids)

Mecosta/Osceola Focus on Life Dinner: October 11, 2021, at The Lodge at CranHill Ranch. Roger Stanwick, a post-abortive man who deeply regrets his involvement nearly 40 years ago, will be the speaker.  Contact Kathie at 231-796-3931 for more information.
