Our Church Family

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to remember those young and old with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles.

Henny Middag was in hospital with concerns about her heart health. On Thursday she was taken to Edmonton. We pray the problems can be treated and that God will sustain her and Tony in this time of uncertainty.

Congratulations to Teena Stol as she celebrates a birthday today and to Simon Swier as he celebrates his on Friday. To each of you we pray to our Lord continued blessings into your new year!

It is Mrs. Grace Vander Veen’s 104th birthday today. We give thanks along with her and the family for the blessing of long life.

For those who would like to congratulate Mrs. Grace Vander Veen on her 104th birthday, there will be an open house for her today at the home of Dave and Emma Reitsma from 2 to 4 p.m., #306 Chateau of Lacombe, 4425 Heritage Way.

Pastor Peter Sluys is being mentioned in Trinity CRC in Edmonton as it was 50 years ago that he started out in ministry in the Christian Reformed Church. Our Chairman Peter Prins is there this morning and will express words of thanks and congratulations on behalf of our congregation.

We are thankful Mrs. Ria Jager was able to return home again this week.
