- The market will now be free to vendors (with advance reservation); a goodwill offering will be accepted in lieu of booth rental. There is a $10 annual registration fee for the season, payable with the application submission.
- Nonfood vendors will be able to attend any week; no resale, liquidation, garage sale, or live animals, please. Home-based business vendors will be allowed to attend any week.
- Vendors and products must be pre-approved upon receipt of the application form at the church or prior to the Wednesday market opening.
We're hoping these changes will allow the occasional local or regional vendor or farmer to vend their products, without making a year-long financial commitment. As a church, one of our missions is to feed the people, and this initiative is one way we can offer fresh and healthy food choices to the community.
If you have any questions about these events please contact the church by either calling (269)679-4845 or e-mail email@example.com
Welcome friends! Let us join together in song and prayer and waiting upon the Lord that we may be refreshed in the Spirit and encouraged for the week ahead.

We also support small farmers in Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica as they build a better future for themselves and their families through our Fair-Trade Coffee, Tea and Chocolate Sales. We also supported our Missionary Paul Webster in Africa to continue his ministry by teaching the people better farming techniques enabling them to feed themselves and their families, saving lives in Africa with young children living longer by growing and harvesting nutritional foods for everyone.
We helped with scholarships for promising students to serve Christ who struggle with resources through World Communion Sunday, One Great Hour of Sharing, helped build Bio Sand Filters for the Water Project in Haiti, sent over 60 blankets to those suffering from disasters with our Blanket Sunday Offering, helped children eat through Haiti Hot Lunch Program, through our Foods Resource Bank Ministry helped under-nourished people in Nicaragua feed themselves with dignity and pride.
We sent Hats and Mittens to the Methodist Children's Home in Detroit and to Stockbridge Avenue United Methodist Church, helped in the Emergency Response to Japan, helped Racial Ethnic Local Churches in Michigan, our Sunday School has adopted a young girl from Africa giving hope to her and her family, through a successful Crop Walk we took a stand against hunger around the world and also helped South County Community Services provide assistance to people in our own neighborhood and also helped some of our own congregation families get through difficult times this year.
God is truly alive and active in our church as is indicated in the above ministries. Faith without action is nothing. This is the "action" God speaks of in the Bible. Going out and reaching our neighbors all over the world. By joining together with other believers to do God's work, we increase Christian unity and help His kingdom grow.
