Blessing of the Animals 2022

1:00 pm, Sunday, October 2

Outdoors on the side lawn

Cherry Hill’s “Blessing of the Animals” service has become an annual fall tradition.

 

This special service commemorates the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.

He was a great lover and protector of all of God’s creatures, great & small.

 

All two and four footed, furry and feathery, crated or leashed friends are welcome!

If you are unable to bring your pet, please bring a photograph.

 

A free-will offering will be received for the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

The shelter handles almost 3,000 animals a year!

This free will offering will be an additional way for us to share our care and concern for our special friends.

  • NEW STUDY OPPORTUNITY THIS FALL

    “CHRISTIANITY’S FAMILY TREE”


    Imagine yourself walking into a big family reunion. People stand around the room in little groups, talking and laughing. Some are beginning to line up at a long table filled with an incredible array of homemade food. They fill their plates, walk to tables, and begin dining. As you look around, you see folks you simply do not recognize. There are others that you recognize but are unable to place with certainty of the family tree and still others who prompt you to think, “Are you sure I’m related to them?” Inevitably, some of those in attendance will be quite different from you. Still, as you make your way around the room, you will get to know your family and hear their stories while at the same time, learning something about yourself.


    This fall, all are invited to join other Cherry Hill friends for a “family reunion” as we study our family in the faith. There are several branches on our family tree – Methodists, Catholics, Baptists, etc. As we get to know our extended Christian family, we may encounter some strange cousins in whose presence we will initially feel a bit uncomfortable. We may even wonder what our connection is to these folks. By the time our family reunion is finished, we will come to see that we share one Creator God, one Lord and Savior, and one Holy Spirit. We will know in a deeper way that we are family. And if we take the time to listen to our family, we will come to know God, and ourselves a bit better.


    This study group will meet at 12:00 Noon on Wednesdays beginning September 21.


    We are honored to welcome clergy from each denomination who will share with us their history, traditions, and beliefs. We hope that some of their members will join in the group each week. Please note on the schedule below that some weeks we will be in Memorial Parlor or we will visit other churches as well.

    For those who wish, copies of Adam Hamilton’s book,  Christianity’s Family Tree: What Other Christians Believe and Why are available to purchase for $12. If you would like to purchase a copy, please contact Rev. Mark Phillips. The book is not required for the class, but is a helpful resource.

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.


During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have maintained our food distribution.

We developed a contact-less delivery system for the protection of our clients and our workers.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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?


Absolutely!
