Readers to Leaders Invitation

As members of Christ’s family we are called to support our sisters and brothers in need, whether they are living in our community or are living in other nations.  At the 2022 Michigan Annual Conference, Rev. Jon Reynolds and Lisa Batten, Associate Director of Connectional Ministries, invited each faith community in the Conference to help with a new mission for children in Michigan and Liberia, one of our two covenant partner nations.

I am including the link to the Conference website, if you would like more information on how the Readers to Leaders program will help students in Michigan reach 3rd grade reading proficiency, along with sponsoring education for a student in Liberia.

Through this mission, we are planting seeds for the future, helping a generation of students here in America, and also in Liberia, reach academic success.

The Conference is nearing its goal of $350,000.  I am asking each church in the East Winds District to consider making a contribution to this mission by May 1, 2024.  Any amount is welcome, and all churches which make a donation will be listed at the Annual Conference. 

May God bless you in all you do in His name,

District Superintendent Rev. Dr. Margie R. Crawford
