Adventist Seniors of Michiana (ASM) June 11 Potluck

Matthew 24:14 presents almost unbelievable problems, but Pastor Laurence Burn of Adventist Frontier Missions has a potential solution which he will present to ASM attendees on Sunday, June 11. Come with your food and friends who are at least 55 years old, to the Village SDA Church Fellowship Hall at 1:00 PM for fellowship, potluck, and perhaps an exciting answer to these age-old problems!

We will also be treated to a vocal solo or two by Trudean Tselliott, from Jamaica, who is now a dormitory dean at Andrews University. Doug and Carol Macomber got acquainted with her last year at campmeeting and really enjoyed her beautiful voice, so now we are privileged to hear her, too!

Pioneer Reception Has Moved!

Thanks to our exciting elevator project, Pioneer has temporarily relocated our Reception to the Lower Level Welcome Center.

You may visit the Lower Level Welcome Center by using the internal stairs via the main Awning Entrance or by using the external stairs adjacent to the Awning Entrance. Heidi Ha will continue to provide you with excellent service with key & card access, Sabbath School resources, volunteer engagement, facilities use, and much more. Contact phone numbers will remain the same—269-471-3133 and 269-471-6565.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we collaborate on the exciting and much-anticipated elevator project.

Update for Renovate 2.0

Our building committee and church board have voted to install the much-needed elevator and redesign the stairs to reduce their steep climb which in turn can provide more comfortable access to our church for all God's people.
