Connections Community Church in Schoolcraft will host a grand opening of its new 9,200-square-foot building on Sunday, December 18 during its 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. services at the corner of U.S. 131 and U Avenue.
The grand opening services, as well as Christmas services on Friday, December 23 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 24 at 5 p.m. have a theme of “Come and See – God’s Invitation to You This Christmas”. The services will explore ways to experience God’s grace, redemption and peace.
For every attender at the grand opening, Connections will make a donation to provide a week’s worth of meals to one child in southwestern Michigan and one child in the Rakai District in southern Uganda. For southwestern Michigan, they will be making a donation to the Food Bank of South-Central Michigan, which serves almost 200,000 hungry people throughout eight counties in this area. For Uganda, they will be making a donation to Grace Ministries. Grace runs two schools serving almost 1,000 students, many orphans.
The church was established in 1997 as The Prairie Chapel, meeting in the multi-purpose room of the Upper Elementary School in Schoolcraft, then at Schoolcraft High in 2005. The name was changed in 2008. The church has grown to over 350 people.
