June Mission of the Month:  Siloam Youth.  We are a "Mother Church" to the Siloam congregation, and they are our "Church Plant."  It is our job, like a mother's, to help them grow and to mature in their faith. On Pentecost Sunday, we took up a collection for their youth group.  There is still time to contribute to this worthy cause if you are able.

June Calling Team:  Please call Jennifer B and Marcia J with any special concerns or requests.

 We are continually collecting personal needs for the churches in the Lansing Christian Services network that have personal needs closets.  There is a special need for toilet paper and women’s personal products.  Items can be placed in the boxes at the end of the upstairs hall.

Our youth group get together will be a graduation party for Jill at the H house, today from 4-7 p.m.  Senior and Junior High are invited, food will be provided!  

Graduation Open House for Emily W: All invited on Saturday, June 29, from 2-6 p.m., here at ICRC, 3200 Delta River Dr., Lansing, MI, 48906.

13th Annual Community Youth Basketball Camp July 8-11.  This is free for children ages 8-14yrs old.  We are still looking for volunteers to help with this.  There are many options to pick from, please see the bulletin board in the FLC to sign up.

Weather Policy- Spring is here! With that comes the possibility of tornado watches/ warnings.  If there is a watch or a warning within a half hour before any scheduled programs meetings or activities, all will be cancelled at that time.
