Middle school, high school, and college writers of The Peoples Church are all invited to 
enter A Third Way Youth Writing Contest: Exploring Solutions for Difficult ProblemsSee guidelines here.

In his sermon, “Be Perfect (No Pressure),” Pastor Andrew inspired us “to look at a difficult situation
and see that there are two choices, a or b, 1 or 2, black or white, and step back and say, ‘Maybe
there’s a third option. Maybe it doesn’t have to be just this or just that.’”

This writing contest, co-sponsored by Fruit of Agape Community Transformations, gives our young people a chance to
explore “a third way” to solve a problem that concerns them. Prizes will be awarded at WNL during Lent to each age
group in essay, narrative, and poetry categories. Deadline for entries is January 28, 2018. See Pastor Drew or contact Maggie Hoggard at 517-543- 2411 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.for more information.

Getting and staying connected is important to us here at The Peoples Church. We can tell you value this, too, because one of the questions that we often get in the church office is a request for someone’s address. While we do not mind talking with you and helping you connect to other congregants, there is a fast and secure way you can do this online.

My Peoples Connection is an online directory of our church members and friends. Here you will find an article that will show you how to sign up with, log in to, and utilize My Peoples Connection. Not only are you able to find contact information in a secure way, you can track your giving and pledge history, see directory photos and make sure your contact information is up to date. There is even a phone app available on both Apple and Android. After creating an account through the website, simply search for “Church Life” in your app store.

We are excited about how My Peoples Connection can help us stay connected with one another and grow our friends here. If you have any questions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Merry Christmas, and may the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ go with you!
