Coming Up at Silver Creek
Membership interesting meeting - march 3, 2024
If you've been thinking about becoming a member of Silver Creek Church or simply are interested in learning more about Silver Creek Church there will be an interest meeting on Sunday, March 3 following the second service at approximately 12:15PM. Light snacks will be served. If you are planning on attending, please sign up at silvercreekchurch.org/membership. Signing up in advance will help us prepare materials for those attending.
1 to 100 Envelope challenge
Switch Youth is asking you to join us in the 1-to-100 Challenge. You may have notice numbered envelopes on the bulletin board near the kitchen. The envelopes, numbered 1 through 100, are there for the taking! We ask that you take an envelope (or two), fill it with the amount of money that corresponds to the number on the envelope, and then place the envelope in a Connect Box or offering bucket. Please return envelopes no later than Sunday, March 10.
So what happens to the money we receive? Half of the funds raised will be given to our student-led mission: Speed the Light. The goal of Speed the Light is to help provide tangible resources for missionaries to be able to spread the gospel and make Jesus known across the world. The other half of the money raised will go towards Camp Scholarships. Both Winter Camp and Summer Camp at Spencer Lake provide unique opportunities for students to connect with other youth but more importantly to connect with God. There have been students unable to attend camp in the past because of the cost. We don’t ever want cost to prevent a student from going to camp. The 1-to-100 Challenge will help prevent that.
On behalf of our students, thank you for helping us reach our goals for Speed the Light and helping students have the opportunity to attend camp this summer! If you have any questions, please reach out to our Youth Director Caitlyn!
feeding america - march 14, 2024
January's Feeding America Mobile Food Pantry is Thursday, March 14th. If you haven't yet served at one of our mobile pantries this may be your month. Remember, you can also serve by helping your neighbor who may be in need of food. Give them a ride or offer to pick up food for them! If you have any questions about Feeding America or what you can do to help, go to silvercreekchurch.org/serve or call the church office 906.249.1715.
Spring Clean up - march 23, 2024
We live in the U.P. and we know all too well that, yup, it's spring-like today and tomorrow, well that's anyone's guess as to what season it'll be. But we won't let that stop us from doing a little inside Spring cleaning to get ready for Easter Sunday! Join us Saturday, March 23 from 9:00 - 11:00AM to give the church a good, deep cleaning. We'll wash walls, clean light fixtures, replace stained ceiling tiles, wash windows, dust, tackle the kitchen and pretty much any other area we can! The more help we have, the more we can accomplish together!
New Services times - easter sunday
We are so excited to share that our attendance is up 20% as compared to last year. We are welcoming new families on a regular basis. This growth has presented us with a wonderful "problem" - an overflowing Cafe space between services!
In order to create a more welcoming space that is conducive to connecting between services the decision has been made to adjust the starting time of our first service. Beginning on Easter Sunday (March 31) our service times will be 9:00AM and 11:00AM. This slight change will give us an additional 30 minutes between services.
Keep in mind that Easter is just over four weeks away! There is plenty of time to invite family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and even random strangers to come to Silver Creek Church to celebrate our Risen Savior! Studies show that Easter is the most attended Sunday of the year by people who otherwise do not attend church. So step out in faith, take a risk and invite someone to church!
Water baptism - march 31, 2024
If you've ever considered following Jesus in water baptism but haven't yet, you will have an opportunity to do so on Easter Sunday. Water baptism is an outward expression of your desire to follow Jesus and live your life for Him! Go to silvercreekchurch.org/baptism to sign up or to let us know if you have any questions about water baptism. Pastor Kevin or Pastor Ben are always willing to answer any questions you may have!
