Gospel In Action Work Projects Reorganized

Michigan Disciples youth, adults and families, here’s a great opportunity to help our churches and neighbors in the Detroit area by being part of a ONE DAY WORK PROJECT on any of six weekends this summer.

It all begins this Saturday, May 26, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Originally scheduled as a weekend of work, this initial "The Gospel in Action" work day  has become a one day session like those that follow. Work to be done at each event includes weatherization and minor repairs at family homes in the area, and some of our churches.

Registration is important so food and supplies are available for you. Here are the Work Project dates and Registration deadlines:

  • June 2 Work Day – Register by May 25;
  • June 9 Work Day – Register by June 1;
  • August 11 Work Day – Register by August 3;
  • August 25 Work Day – Register by August 17;
  • September 8 Work Day – Register by August 31.

To register, contact Rev. Carl Zerweck, Director of Rippling Hope, who again this year is coordinating our summer of "The Gospel in Action – Detroit" work projects. Reach him at or 512-619-0575. OR for further information contact the Michigan Disciples Regional Office,

One-day registrations of $25 include lunch, snack, building materials and project support. Early arrival is possible on Friday evening with overnight lodging at Northwestern Christian Church, 13650 Ilene, in Detroit. Make requests for lodging at time of registration.

These 8:00 am Michigan regional work projects will begin at Northwestern Christian Church with registration, orientation and a devotional. The rest of the day is spent at work sites, with a snack and closing worship back at the church at 4:00 pm.
