     With hurricanes, fires and global warming - we are doing a small churches part. First UCC has assembled and took 13 disaster buckets and 20 personal care kits to the Northwest Ohio Association Annual Gathering at Genoa. The UCC will distribute these kits to victims of hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods.  
     Thrivent Financial donated funds for contents of the buckets and church members paid for the personal care kits.  Judie Sagendorf did the shopping for the items and oversaw the assembly of the kits and buckets.   Thanks, Judie!

Reflection:

Lakeside daisy is an endemic restricted to the Great Lakes area, within which it is one of the region's rarest plants - naturally occurring at only a handful of sites. In the United States it is known only from the Marblehead Peninsula area in northern Ohio, three restored populations in northern Illinois (where it was known historically from two sites), and a single, extremely small colony in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. In Ontario, Canada, where lakeside daisy is most abundant, it occurs along much of the southern coast of Manitoulin Island and in several restricted areas near the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.

Status: Threatened,listed June 23, 1988

 

Habitat: Dry rocky prairies; limestone rock surfaces including outcrops and quarries

 

Lead Region: 3

 

Region 3 Lead Office: Ohio Field Office

 

Range: Illinois, Michigan, Ohio

 

 

This bright daisy is a long-lived perennial growing where few others can, on nearly barren limestone bedrock in full sunlight. All individuals within a given population tend to bloom about the same time, producing the spectacular effect of a golden blanket across a rocky landscape. All the flower heads track the sun across the sky in unison. After about a week, the double notched petals fade before falling. Seed dispersal takes place about a month later. Lakeside daisy also reproduces vegetatively by rhizomatous growth.

____________

Our church is like the Lakeside daisy, We live here, beautiful, a little endangered, yet thriving. When you look at us, you will smile, breath deep and long for the future when all is well. We invite you to come take a look and become a part of our present and our future.

  Handicap accessible restrooms are located in the basement. Elevator is available.


        We look forward to visitors! We have a regular congregation of the faithful. While we welcome vacationers, tourists, summer people, or new or old residents are invited to come to worship any and all Sundays.


         We have a traditional worship service in a beautiful, historic building, where God is still speaking and ALL are welcome! Just come any Sunday morning at 10:30. Communion on the second Sunday of each month (first Sunday in October) is open to all Christians. Coffee hour follows every worship service.

We have more people in the summer than the winter because we have a lot of pleople spend their vacations here, then they join us for worship.

      You can expect traditional Protestant worship. During worship, at the time of prayers, you may hear members expessing their request for prayers. You may say something or not as you choose.

      We sing three hymns and hear a good and timely message. This is a church that expects the exposition of the Word to be applied to the condition of the world.
