24-Hour Birmingham Prayer Vigil For The Persecuted Church:  From Nov 6 to Nov 7 all are invited to participate in a 24-hour prayer vigil in Birmingham for the persecuted Church.  This event is in conjunction with the International Day Of Prayer, when Christians around the globe pray for their brothers and sisters who suffer on account of their faith in Jesus Christ.  Globally there are more than 215 million Christians who are now being persecuted.  This year we will focus on North Korea, ranked as the most dangerous place for Christians to live, as well as China.  Specific schedule for the prayer vigil and further details will be published at a later date.


We Need You For Euchre!  The Weekend Experience team is planning a Euchre tournament fundraiser for a local non-profit, to be held in mid-winter.

Lunch will be provided!  A sign-up sheet will be posted in the Welcome Center. We do need to know how many are coming! If you want to bring a friend to church those days, please do!

Dispatches from the World of Young Families:  Birmingham and the surrounding communities continue to be attractive places to raise a family.  In 2019 organizations evaluated Michigan cities to determine the best places to raise a family based on quality of schools, health, crime statistics, activities for children and families.  Birmingham was ranked #9 by mlive.com, #12 by WalletHub.com, #2 by Homesnacks.net, #8 by niche.com, and #4 by thecrazytourist.com.  Many other communities just outside the Birmingham city line found their way toward the top of these lists as well.  


Do you think that in future years, these organizations will give a bump to Birmingham due to the family-focused resources provided by our congregation?
