Good News Group/Habitat for Humanity

The Good News group, a partnership of about 20 Washtenaw County churches is renovating two houses on Clarita Street in the Nancy Park Subdivision of Ypsilanti. These houses sit next door to each another. Work has been underway since May. The First Baptist work day is Saturday, July 28. Work goes from 8 am to about 4 pm, but if you can only come for the morning or afternoon, that’s ok. Please let Scott Diels (hscottdiels@att.net) or Mary Davis ( madrad@umich.edu) know if you are coming. Only folks 16 and over can work at Habitat sites. NO skills or experience required.

There are many ways to participate in our Good News House partnership. First Baptist provides a crew for at least one Saturday each summer. We do whatever kind of work is needed – from digging holes to putting up siding to painting and installing doors. Training is provided; no previous experience or skill is required. On that day, we also provide lunch for the work crew, so baking, shopping, and/or delivering lunch are great ways to participate. In addition to working on the houses, First Baptist also contributes financially to the cost of the build. Contact our coordinators for more information (Mary Davis, madrad@umich.edu and Scott Diels, hscottdiels@att.net).

FBC Ladies’ Book Club

The FBC Ladies’ Book Club will next meet on Tuesday, January 10th, at 7 pm.  Mary Davis has agreed to host us that evening for discussion of  “Sarah’s Key” by Tatiana de Rosnay.  This book details the experiences of an American journalist who 60 years after the arrest of Jewish families in France seeks to find out what happened to Sarah, a 10-year-old who lived in the apartment she (the American) now occupies.  The plan is to borrow a Book-Club-to-Go set from the A2 library.  If you are interested in receiving a book or have other questions, please feel free to contact Janice Stumpf, jlstumpf@umich.edu or 663-4871.
