The December Messenger Is Here!

People, look east, the time is near of the crowning of the year. Make your home fair as you are able, trim the hearts and set the table. People, look east and sing today; Love the guest is on the way. 

- Eleanor Farjeon


    This year's Dearborn Holiday Choral Festival will feature the beautiful music of Cherry Hill's beloved "Boar's Head Festival" production. The concert will feature the Dearborn Community Chorus under the direction of Steven H. Olsen, Vanguard Voices under the direction of G. Kevin Dewey, and the 25 member Dearborn Chamber Orchestra. 


    This month's potluck dinner will take place on Wednesday, December 13, at 6:00 pm in Memorial Parlor. Those planning to attend are asked to use the signup sheet on the table in Weir Foyer. 


    Amid the warm glow of candlelight and the company of treasured family members and friends, we will gather for two traditional Christmas Eve services at 5:00 and 11:00 pm. The 5:00 pm service will take place in the sanctuary and will include the choir and other special music under the direction of Charles Miller.


Beginning this month, Cherry Hill members and friends will have the opportunity to share the Christmas spirit of sharing and giving in two very special ways with some very special friends.


PERSONAL HYGEINE ITEMS GIFT BOXES WITH FIRST STEP & VISTA MARIA                                           

Since 1978, First Step has been working for peaceful families and safe communities in Wayne County, Michigan. First Step is a non-profit agency providing comprehensive services for victims of domestic and sexual violence. Services include emergency shelter for individuals, families, and their pets; transitional supportive housing; counseling, advocacy, and support groups for adults and children; Personal Protection Order assistance, and many more.

The staff and volunteers at Vista Maria know that it takes a fearless heart to overcome the challenges of abuse and trauma and move forward. An unwavering courage, limitless love, and positive vision that was embodied in 1883 by founder Sister Mary Euphrasia, and carried on today by each person associated with Vista Maria. What began as a home for girls and women in need has evolved to encompass mental health services, foster care and adoption, independent living, and secure care for the survivors of human trafficking, plus education, after school care and advocacy for the welfare of children.

              Beginning Sunday, November 19, members of the Mission Committee will be distributing plastic storage boxes for members and friends to take and fill with personal hygiene items. The boxes will then be collected and shared with the women and children who turn to First Step & Vista Maria for help in times of crisis. Items to be placed in the boxes include the following full size items:


                                                    Hair care products (shampoo, conditioner)     Hand & Body Lotion Hair Brushes 

                                                    Hair care products for women of color             Body Wash                    Toothbrushes & Toothpaste

                                                   Wide-tooth combs                                                    Deodorant                      Hand Sanitizer

                                                                                                                                             Feminine Hygiene Items   

              Boxes will be distributed until they are all taken. All boxes must be returned by Sunday, December 10.





Once again, our Board of Deacons is sponsoring a warming tree in conjunction with the Dearborn Good Fellows and with participants in the Working on Reading Development (W.O.R.D.) Afterschool Literacy program at the Calvin East Presbyterian Church in Detroit. This year, the Dearborn Good Fellows will work with Dearborn Public Schools to make Christmas brighter for approximately 1,000 children in our community. The W.O.R.D. program at Calvin East Church in Detroit works with elementary school students from Detroit Public Schools.

              The tree will be in Weir Foyer beginning Sunday, November 19. We will adorn the tree with coats, gloves, scarves, and hats in a variety of children and adult sizes. It is requested that ALL items be NEW!

              PLEASE NOTE: All donated items must be on the tree no later than Sunday, December 10.

What Can I Do?

Helping Hand Food Pantry

We are helping people in our community

to fight hunger.


Helping Hand’s Mission Statement


Helping Hand is a program supported by the congregation of this church.  We supply food to people of our community on an emergency basis.  Other area churches and local organizations participate in this program by providing additional food and monetary donations that assist us in keeping the church pantry supplied.  These are our sole sources of assistance to aid those who come to us in need.


The Helping Hand Food Pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon.* If it is your first time, please come before 11:30 a.m. To qualify to receive food from the pantry, a picture I.D. is required.  Only one person per household (per address) is eligible to apply for assistance for the family.  Eligible participants can receive food from the pantry once every other month**.


*may be closed due to bad weather, or a church event; it’s best to call ahead

**subject to change depending on food supply



Since 1989, the food pantry has served an increasing number of families every year and remains committed to addressing food insecurity in southeast Michigan where, as many as 1 in 7, households struggle to put food on the table.


How can I donate food?


Generally, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the church Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but please call ahead.



Can I make a monetary donation?


You may donate by using our secure online link:

Building Usage - Space to Share, Room to Grow

We've been a part of the Dearborn community since 1942. During that time, we've been able to support our neighbors by providing space for many community activities -- scout meetings, yoga classes, meetings and more. Our usage fees are very reasonable and help cover maintenance costs for our building. Please contact us to learn more about our building and how it might fit into your plans.  Download a flyer with more details here.
