Daylight Savings Time
It’s that time of year again. Set your clocks back one hour on Saturday, November 1st.
This morning we welcome our longtime friend and troubadour Larry Hover. Larry resides in California, but was one of our first music ministers. He will bless us with his music. If you wish to visit with him we are gathering at Fuddruckers at Van Dyke and 18 Mile after the service for fellowship. www.larryhover.com
Thank you to everyone who was involved in helping to make our outreach to the community a success! We appreciate the time and effort that went into decorating, setting up, breaking down, and to everyone involved in the activities: we could not have done it without you! The Gospel went out to the children who attended, along with their parents. Thank you Linda Mazek for your dedication and strong desire to share Jesus with the children of our community. God bless you.
The youth group will be selling 2015 calendars after church today. Proceeds will go to Hands of Hope Childcare Center in Pontiac.

The phrase, “Unto Full Stature” appears in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. The passion he received from Christ was to spread the Gospel and to inspire man and woman to maturity.

The Mission Statement of the
Fisherman’s Net Church
Our mission as the Fisherman’s Net Church is to be a valuable part of the spread of God’s word in Southeast Michigan. A place where the broken can come and become whole through God’s word and the Holy Spirit. A place where believers can be groomed to maturity in Jesus Christ and sent out to recover the lost. A place our children can learn of the gift of salvation and begin their spiritual walk with Jesus Christ.
From the beginning, the Fisherman’s Net has been involved in promoting God’s Love through the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ. By accepting Jesus’ instructions, we can have access to God through repentance and the forgiveness of our sins. By this process, we become connected to Him in a personal way.
To understand God’s purposes for our lives, we turn to what we consider the “Manual for Life”, the Holy Bible. The Net provides a comprehensive Bible study program throughout the year for both young and old.
At the Net, ministry takes on various forms of expression: Music, Drama, Intercessory Prayer, Helps, Exhortation, Counseling, Youth, Teen, Community Outreach and Foreign Missions are some examples.
