An announcement will be made by 7:30 a.m. on any Sunday impacted by weather. We will announce via our website, Facebook page, or you may call the church to hear the announcement on our answering message. Please use your best judgment before braving the elements and remember that you can always join the service in progress or later in archives via Livestream.

Student Ministry

* TWO ways you can help our students in the coming months:
1. Weekly Breakfast Fund

We are supplying donuts for our students every Sunday morning. Our youth Sunday school teachers have been handling the costs related to breakfast, but with our growing youth ministry, we need some other partners to help provide weekly breakfast. The cost for one week’s breakfast is $30. If you would like to sponsor one or several weeks within 2020, please just mark “Youth Breakfast” on your donation and turn it into the office at any time.
2. Scholarships for Students
Many of our South Haven students struggle to come up with the necessary funds to attend our events. Our scholarship fund is low for those students in need, and we are looking for partners to help allow ALL of our students to attend our events without the worry of money. Students who are requesting scholarships will fill out an application, and a youth worker team will assign funds to those according to need. If you would be willing to help establish our scholarship fund for students, please mark your donation as “Scholarship Fund” and turn in your donation to the office any time.
