Due to popular request- we will now meet for brunch after Sunday service. Regardless of where or when you worship (or even if you didn't attend a service anywhere), you can come for fellowship with us.
From approx. 11:40 – 1 we will meet at Panera Cares- A Community Café. The menu is mostly the same as the regular Panera menu.
This is the Panera on Michigan Ave. in downtown Dearborn. Parking is free on Sundays.
If you get there first, please try to get the big table or a table where other tables can be moved together. Hope to see you there.
Just showing up shows your support for their mission. What an easy outreach!

“Panera Cares® community cafes exist to feed each and every person who walks through our doors with dignity regardless of their means.”
Panera Cares community cafes are about working together, shoulder to shoulder with our customers, to confront a serious problem plaguing communities across this country. Hunger. Simply put, in these non-profit locations, we will feed anyone. We will offer a dignified dining experience in an uplifting environment – without judgment – whether or not a person can pay. Panera Cares community cafes – operated by the Panera Bread Foundation, a separate Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity – are meant to raise the level of awareness about food insecurity in this country, while also being a catalyst for change in our communities.
Panera Cares community cafes are designed to help address the ever-worsening epidemic of food insecurity (hunger) in the U.S. Consider this: according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), over 17 million U.S. households are considered food insecure. Simply put, for a significant number of Americans, putting food on the table is a struggle. 16 million kids – 1 in 5 – do not have enough to eat each day and lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis.
We’re trying to help fix that. While many solutions exist to provide access to food, Panera Cares community cafes are designed to address hunger in a new way…in a restaurant setting that maintains one’s dignity and fills one’s belly.
