Puzzled over where you can serve at Aldersgate Church?

Remedy Youth Ministries

Remedy meets Sunday evenings from 6-8PM all year and is open to those in grades 6-12. On a typical Sunday, we begin out time together by raiding the snack cupboard, visiting with friends and welcoming new faces. We then spend time really digging into the Bible together, focusing on how the Bible applies to our everyday lives. We then like to round out our evenings together with some sort of fun activity or game time. If you have questions, please contact Jeff here. Or submit your questions via, aldersgate.church/students

All Church Post-Charge Conference Town Hall Meeting @ Midland Campus & via Zoom

Come and hear the updates and news on November 1. 2020 @ 6pm @ Midland Campus.
Due to this unusual season, Charge Conference will be held differently this year. UM Churches are being asked to have a conversation together to talk about the items that would handled at a regular in-person Charge Conference. This year, we had a Town Hall Meeting on Sunday, October 11th at 6pm at Midland Campus & via Zoom to discuss those items. Then the Single Board Governance Team will be meeting personally with the District Superintendent to finalize all items that were voted and spoken about at our Town Hall. We understand that this is not how this process is usually handled, however, with God's guidance and much grace, we will do our best to ensure that all decisions are in accordance and in alignment with our organizational mission.
If you have questions regarding this process, please contact Pastor Michael T. Sawicki via MichaelT@aldersgate.church or via 989-631-1151.
Note: To join this event via Zoom, please use our regular Zoom worship link.

You will get a daily email reminding you to pray for 5 of your neighbors every day, and the email even provides suggestions on what to pray for. The website also helps you log your progress as you pray for the people in your neighborhood.You’ll also be able to see areas where others from our church are praying, so you’ll be encouraged through the process.
The service is free and anonymous; your neighbors will not know you are standing in the gap for them unless you decide to contact them.  It’s amazing to think of what God will do honoring your prayers.
