ST. PATRICK’S DAY DINNER TO HELP THOSE IN NEED

 
The Missions Ministry of Blaine Christian Church, 7018 Putney Road, Arcadia (corner of Joyfield and Putney Roads), will host and serve a Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner at 6 pm, Saturday, March 16, 2019, at the church.  The Benzie County community is invited to our Annual Week Of Compassion (WoC) disaster relief dinner.

The entire amount of the evening’s freewill offering will be given to the Week Of Compassion organization.  In 2018, they were among the first relief agencies at our nation’s recent disasters - California wild fire and floods; North Carolina, Florida, and Virginia hurricanes; Illinois tornado; Kentucky and West Virginia fires.

The evening will also feature a special video presentation by Erin Wathen, from Week of Compassion's National Office.  She will share an overview about current relief work being done, and information about a new rehabilitation initiative in Honduras called “Growing Hope Globally”.  This fits  this year’s Week Of Compassion theme:  “MORE  THAN  WE  CAN  IMAGINE”.

To make sure enough food is prepared, the reservation deadline is no later than Tuesday, March 12th.  Call the church, 231/352-9148, or send an email:  blainechurch@gmail.com.  The church can also answer questions and provide directions.

The church family at Blaine Christian Church believes in working locally and around the world, and desires to serve the physical and spiritual needs of our community.  We support the annual work of Week of Compassion, the relief, refugee, and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples Of Christ) in the U.S. and Canada, who seek to equip people so they can alleviate suffering through disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development, and the promotion of mission opportunities.

You and your family are welcome to meet Blaine’s church family on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am (praise and worship service), or at 11 am (blended/ traditional service).  Separate activities are provided at each service for children 3 years old - 1st grade.  Sunday School classes for children 2 years old through adults meet at 9:45 am.  More information is on the church’s website:  blainechristianchurch.org.

Benzie Community Centers Jeep Rally

WHAT IS IT?   A fun-filled afternoon for residents and visitors in Benzie County designed to expand Community Awareness of the various resource centers throughout the County that are actively working together to enhance the quality of life for the residents. Designed to become a traditional summer event, the Road Rally is also a Scavenger Hunt adventure that takes the participants to the locations of the various community centers existing and proposed while providing an opportunity to learn the services that these centers offer or plan to offer residents. Simultaneously, the clues leading to the ten (10) stations or checkpoints inform the participants about local businesses, historical places and other events.  An After-Rally event at Storm Cloud Brewery on Parkview Lane in Frankfort will feature awards and prizes to participants of the Rally and Scavenger Hunt.  Other information about the event,  including details about sponsors and fund raising will be made available as further planning takes shape.

      The Jeep Rally and Scavenger Hunt fund raising event will start in Frankfort at Storm Cloud Brewery on Park Avenue, proceed to a quick stop at Frankfort's old Recreation Center on Main Street then on to Grow Benzie, Platte River School in Honor, and then to the Betsie Valley Community Center site at the Betsie Valley Elementary School in Thompsonville, finally returning to Frankfort.  Stops along the way will feature local historical and cultural information about  Benzie County, a beautiful place we care about passionately.  The sponsors and organizers hope to create an annual event--a marvelous way to learn more about Benzie County, its people and places.
