Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk
The Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk happened on Sunday, October 11! Our AACRC team was very small, but we reached our goal! We had a virtual send-off, and walking was independently done, but we raised over $2000 to help those in need in our community and around the world. Still like to donate? Every bit helps fight hunger. Click HERE to donate. Checks payable to CWS/CROP may be mailed to the church office by October 29.
Thank you so much!

Post-High School Packages
We would love to send love and encouragement to our post-high young people. Some of them are taking courses online, classes in person, a gap season so they can take courses in person, or some sort of hybrid situation. Regardless of their current path, we know that it is challenging and perhaps not as they had hoped it would be. Living in community, we invite you to join us in sending a note to all or some of the following young people. In the past we have sent care packages, but in light of our current situation, we will be sending cards and notes with a gift card.
Our post-high youth: Helen Brush, Eva Doorlag, Gannon Henke, Will Henke, Dane Hubers, Darian Karr, Christopher Lloyd, Kate Van Ee
Please read the following options for ways you can participate:
- You can write your messages/cards and bring them to the church office or drop them off in the box on Hubers’ front porch. 2340 Nixon Road, Ann Arbor 48105
- You can email your messages to Kimberly9198@gmail.com, and your message will be printed off and included in the envelopes sent.
- If you would like to contribute a small monetary donation, please contact Kim Hubers at 734-657-3397 or Rachel in the church office. Checks can be written out to AACRC with “Care Packages” in the memo line.
Please drop off your items by Friday, October 16. (That is this week!)
Thanks for sharing your life. Know that a card, a picture drawn by a little one, a funny story, small joke, or a word of encouragement may just be what brightens the day for one of our young people.
Service Opportunity – Hesed Community Church
Saturday, October 31, 3-6pm
We have a service opportunity for 10-12 people interested in heading out to Hesed Community Church in Detroit for a few hours on Saturday, October 31. From 3-6pm that afternoon, we will be serving hot dogs, chips, and candy to the neighbors in that area. There may also be some tasks around the Brightmoor ministry house that they could use some help with, such as gardening, painting, etc. Masks will be required.
Not able to attend in person? We are also looking for donations of food items and candy. To sign up as a volunteer or to check out the list of items needed, click HERE.
Any donated items should be brought to church by Wednesday, October 28. Please label for “Hesed” and put in the kitchen or outside the church office door.
