The Shelby-Utica Patch events calendar is a great place for local churches to post dates and times for special and regular services.
Between remembering to turn off the Christmas lights before bed and which sweater to get little Johnny, there are infinite things to remember during the holidays. Don't let church service be one of them. Shelby-Utica Patch is the perfect place to post special and regularly scheduled church services, so people can check one more thing off their to-do list this holiday season. Adding a church service on Patch is easy to do. Just click on the Events tab at the top of the page, and then click on Add an Event. Simple! Be sure to include as much information as possible -- especially if a particular service is for adults only. There's nothing more embarrassing than being the only person in church with a crying baby. Yikes. Take some of the guess …
