Ghana Thanksgiving Service - Sunday, Aug. 31

This special service was organized by Jean Mutara, former refugee from Krisan Sanzule, to praise God for his blessings and to thank Webster Church in-person for all that was done, in 10 years of involvement, for the refugees who resided at Krisan Sanzule, the UNHCR refugee camp. Mutara and the Rev. LaVerne M. Gill will be guest speakers. An African song will be taught and there will be a drummer during the service. An ALL CHURCH PICNIC on Jennings Rd. immediately follows the service. An entrée of chicken and rice will be provided by the hosts. All other Websterites are asked to bring a dish to pass. We will have more song, dance and joy after our blessing and meal. In the event of rain, we will meet in the Fellowship Hall.

Reverend Gill is the author of Faith and Kidney Disease: Prayers, Meditations and Spiritual Disciplines for People with Kidney Disease and she served as Pastor at Webster from 1999 to 2008. Jean Mutara, R.N., was the camp clinic nurse for seven years at the Krisan Sanzule camp in Ghana. He, his wife and children now live in Chicago.


Time for Reflection - Tuesday, August 26

The sanctuary will be open from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for personal meditation and silent reflection. Contact the Church Office ( or 734-426-5115, ext.0) with questions.


Outdoor Worship, August 17 @ 9:30 a.m.

This Sunday we will worship outdoors (weather permitting). There will be a Go/No Go decision at 8:30 a.m. Some folding chairs will be set up for people who might be uncomfortable sitting on the permanent benches. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs if you desire. Parking for outdoor worship services is behind the Scadin barn for those who may find it difficult to walk longer distances and cannot use the designated parking near the church.

Following the worship service there will be an Eco Event in the fellowship hall. A church member will be talking about climate change-- local and global.



Special Music - Sunday, Aug. 10

The Cherry Hill Gospel Quartet will provide the music for the worship service this Sunday. Among the pieces they will perform are "Thank You, Dear Lord for Music," "Surely the Presence," and "Step Into the Water."




Communion Sunday - Aug. 3


Communion is offered the first Sunday of every month.

At the table of Holy Communion, in bread blessed and broken, we recognize Christ and rejoice.

All those who share this belief are invited to receive the sacrament.
