Celebration Midweek – January 9

SOUP, SALAD, & PIE LUNCHEON
Nothing is better than a luncheon indoors with friends from Celebration during the winter!  Join us this Sunday, January 13 after church.  Sign up at the info booth to bring an item!  This is one of the best meals you will ever get!

DIABETES PREVENTION CLASS
We are partnering with the YMCA to host a class for people at high-risk of diabetes!  It starts January 21 at 1:00PM.  WHY?  13% of people over age 20 in Muskegon County are diabetic.  Many more don’t even know they are at risk of becoming diabetic where your life will dramatically change, especially your insurance rates.  For many, this can be prevented.  Contact Pastor Matt or the Muskegon YMCA for more information about this class.

PLAY TO LEARN
Every loving parent wants their children to succeed in life.  The Play to Learn class helps parents start their child down this road.  It is a great way for parents to learn how to read and interact well with their children.  The class resumes this Friday, January 11 at 10:00AM in the Fireside Room.
