Wading In With Pastor Chad | Sundays | 6pm-7:30pm |In-Person & Online

Starting Sunday, September 18, Pastor Chad will lead a Discussion Group called Wading In. Wading in allows the person doing the wading to decide how deep they will go. Whether you are just testing the water or ready to go 'all in', you are invited to come and learn with Pastor Chad. The first curriculum is titled, "How NOT to Save the World" by Hosanna Wong. This is a video-based discussion group based on a book by the same title in which Wong attempts to help her readers understand how to "share God's love with the people right next to you." Come discover how YOUR story can help you naturally talk about Jesus in a way that draws others toward God. "How Not to Save the World" study guide plus streaming video is available on cokesbury.com. For more information, contact Pastor Chad Parmalee, by email.

Lectio Divina | Tuesdays | 1 PM | In-Person & Online

Lectio Divina is a Latin phrase meaning Divine Listening. The practice is a simple spiritual discipline that allows one to have a deep encounter with scripture. We have offered Lectio Divina before (quite a few years ago) and there have been requests to do it again. The study should last 45 minutes or so, but it’s a rewarding time!

  • Tuesdays, with Dr. Dunbar​

UNPACKED | Psalms | Wednesdays (September 14th-28th) | 10:30 AM

Redford Brightmoor Initiative | Meal Assembly

We are seeking a few more individuals (men or women) to assist with this monthly ministry.  You can choose to help every month or just as few times a year. 

Here is the process and where we need your assistance:

At the end of each month, an online sign-up form is emailed to the group of volunteers to sign up to help with the next month’s meal. We typically prepare the meal for the 3rd Saturday of each month. Volunteers will choose to:


  1. Cook or purchase the food designated for that month (delivered to Newburg by the designated Thursday) 

  2. Package the food on a Thursday evening (on the designated date/time)

  3. Deliver food on a Friday (arriving at Newburg at 11:30a, putting meals in a volunteer’s car, driving 10-12 minutes to Brightmoor, taking food from the car, walking up and downstairs with the food to their kitchen, and then driving back to Newburg – arriving back no later than 1p).


We typically serve protein, vegetables, fruit, dessert, and starch in each meal. The greatest need we have is in preparing the food and delivering the food. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry or signing up to be on the monthly volunteer list, please contact Janice Gasaway, leader of WCTC, by email.
