"We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 
Praising God, praying and trusting God and living our lives as Disciples of Christ is essential in our teaching at SMCD. We thank all of those who have supported, volunteered, and given their time to attend our Annual Golf Event in September. The golf winners were from 1st Plymouth Church. The most golfers attending were from Grosse Pointe Memorial Church. Our net income exceeded our goal!!! Our Board of Directors and the Golf Committee were praying for a successful event. We got a late start and had to change venues. Prayers were answered with the volunteers, attendees and money being raised. In addition to golfing, we had other people attend the dinner and silent auction to support us. We hope next year more of our sisters in Christ will be able to join us by being…golf supporters, golfers, volunteers, donors of silent auction items, and attendees at our dinner bidding on silent auction items. It is never too early to think how you can join us at our Annual Golf Fundraiser. 
The Center is serving the working poor more and more as well as people of all ages who are hungry. We have seen an increase in men and young 20’s needing assistance. We are able to meet their needs because of all of you. Our After School Program is running three days a week including snacks being offered and then dinner. Our main goal is to witness Jesus Christ our Lord to all who come into our path. As the children learn about the Bible, we are confident they will begin a relationship with God and understand that Jesus walks with them. You and I will be here for a moment but God is always with them. We ask for your continued prayers as we go through this school year of 2022-2023.
If you would like to volunteer or have us come as a guest speaker or preach on a Sunday please contact us. May God bless you all indeed!!! Pastor Ruth Azar, Executive Director
