Lunch and Learn
Argus Farm Stop: Growing the Local Agricultural Economy

Thursday, March 9
12:00 p.m. | Social Hall

Join us for a hot lunch, great fellowship, and a presentation from Kathy Sample and Bill Binkerhoff about their work with Argus Farm Stop. Church members with a deep faith as well as a passion for local and sustainable food, with multiple locations, are developing a core of young employees with a passion, too! "We want small, local farms to succeed. We provide a place where local farms can sell locally-grown produce and other goods conveniently to consumers, year-round!" Come learn, celebrate, and cheer on this good work. Sign up here.

Spring Trip to Detroit
Thursday, March 30

Mark March 30 on your calendar for a visit to Detroit’s Motown Museum, which recently re-opened following a three-year closure and a multi-million-dollar renovation/expansion. Come and enjoy a whole new experience. The fun will begin earlier in the day with a long-awaited stop at Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum in West Bloomfield. Marvin’s boasts a wonderful collection of classic and antique arcade games, pinball machines, and pre-electronic forms of entertainment. Bring a handful of quarters. Lunch will be at the Stage Deli, a classic Jewish delicatessen where we’ll enjoy an assortment of favorite sandwiches and Dr. Brown sodas. Sign up here. (limit of 55 persons).
