"God's Church, God's People"
True Covenant Church
I pray that all is well with you and your branches of our family tree. Well, it is
that time of year again. It is time for us to begin putting our pennies in order
for the 2018 Ginyard Family Pastoral Fellowship (GFPF18). To that end, I
want to share some pertinent information with you. Of course, this wonderful
event will convene at True Covenant Church in River Rouge, Michigan, on
Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-27, 2018).
We have secured hotel accommodations for GFPF18 at the Comfort Inn & Suites, located in Allen Park, Michigan. The address is 3600 Enterprise Drive, Allen Park, MI. 48101, and the phone number is (313) 323.3500. Those of you who attended the GFPF in 2013, the last time True Covenant Church served as host, you may remember this facility. However, since then it has been purchased by new ownership, and it has also been completely renovated. The facility features complimentary breakfast, and a fully equipped common area. The indoor pool area and workout room are both open until 10 PM. All rooms are non-smoking rooms and include a refrigerator, a microwave, and a work area. The suites are additionally equipped with a separate seating area and a jetted tub. For this beautiful facility we have negotiated the following rates:
Single King Bed Rooms: $109
Double Queen Bed Rooms: $119
King Suite: $139
(Rates good January 15, 2018 thru April 25, 2018)
For your convenience the GFPF18 hotel is only 15 minutes from the church, but nearly walking distance from an expansive open-air mall. This mall is peppered with several restaurants from full service establishments like Long Horn Steakhouse and Applebee’s, to quick serve eateries like Panera Bread and Chipotle. Anchoring this mall are big box stores like Target, Best Buy, Meijer (a Walmart style store), and Home Depot. Additionally, there are many more smaller storefronts like Five Below and Michael’s.
Finally, more correspondence will follow. Also, continue to check back here for updates and developments. We are looking forward to seeing everyone. To that end we are putting together an action-packed weekend of activities for your enjoyment. There will be an optional Personal Training Session, Multi Aged Bible Bowl, Family Feud Extravaganza, and the GFPF “Brain Games,” just to name a few. So, get ready! We invite you to tour the hotel at www.choicehotel.com/MI463. Also, keep in mind the above listed rates are reserved until April 25, 2018. Reserve your room today. Again, we will be in touch with you periodically over the coming months, and we can hardly wait to seeing you all in May. God Bless!
Grace & Peace
