We had a wonderful time at this year's Fish Days of Lansing. Our congregation created a float for the parade on Sunday afternoon. We also participated in the ecumenical worship service that morning.
We would like to thank all the people who helped with the float, especially Mike Schweitzer for building the big fish and the paper mache fish, John Schild for letting us use his trailer, Gus Gustafson for driving the float, Mary Schweitzer for hosting brunch for those working on the float, and all the children and adults who painted the fish and waves. We are so proud to have been a part of the parade with our message of God's love.
