ISAAC LogoThe Fifteenth Annual ISAAC Banquet is just weeks away. “Let Justice Roll Like a River” is the theme and Dr. J. Louis Felton, former pastor of Galilee Baptist church and one of the founders of ISAAC in 2001, will be the main speaker. Tickets are on sale in the foyer. Don’t miss this joyful and historic event!

The team working to welcome and assist our refugee family are busily preparing for their imminent arrival, filling requests for needed items.

The Center For Transformation, a faith-based organization working with the Michigan Department of Corrections and community agencies to provide mentors for returning citizens, received some wonderful news in the form of a $10,000 grant from the Gilmore Foundation! People’s Church has been involved with CFT for about ten years. As more released prisoners are attending the weekly meetings, more mentors are needed. If you would like to learn more about this rewarding work, please contact Rick Johnson, George McCrea or Molly Fairbanks, longtime members of CFT. Their enthusiasm will encourage you.

Our volunteers at Lincoln School are winding down another successful year of tutoring/mentoring/assisting children at our “adopted” school. All of us wish that everyone could feel the satisfaction we get from knowing that we have helped youngsters in our community achieve real gains in their academic success and confidence in their school success. Each child we work with establishes one more trusting and encouraging relationship that makes a real difference.

If you have an interest in helping the most vulnerable children in our community to succeed in school and think you would find satisfaction in this effort, please join us. One hour a week–there are teachers and kids who welcome your participation. Here are the names of this year’s volunteers who would love to share their experiences with you.

Jeme Baker, Martha Beverly, Sharon Caron, Rochelle Habeck, Jeanne Leadley, Catherine Niessink, Stephen Ohs, Karen Tinklenberg, Kathryn Westphal, Kay Spade, Mary Lewis.

Thanks to all who filled Rick’s truck with foodstuffs for Loaves and Fishes.
