Adult Choir


A choir for adults of all ages meets on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. to practice.  The choir shares their wonderful music during worship on most Sundays except during the summer months.  Practices are open to all; no auditions are necessary.   Accompaniment is provided by Anita Nartker on the organ and Judy Metcalf on the piano.   If you would like to share your talent for singing, please join us.  

Nutrition Club


The nutrition effort will resume when school starts again the end of August.  

The  need for transporting food bags from Mt. Pleasant to Shepherd continues.  These bags are then distributed to children who could benefit from extra and  convenient food over the weekends.  

The volunteer effort required is picking up about 100 plastic grocery bags at Kinney School off Pickard Street  in Mt. Pleasant at 3 pm every other Thursday and transporting them directly to Shepherd Elementary.  It take approximately 1 hour to complete this task, the strength to carry several bags at once and a vehicle.

 If you would like to be added to the schedule, please contact  Arnie Hammel at 989-828-5415.  Thanks for making an impact on the children of the community.
