Next Sunday March 23rd 

We continue our Lenten journey along the Emmaus road - the road of faith - as Jesus points us to the power of God’s word, the scriptures from Luke 24:25-32. In the afternoon we consider if we are truly “Law abiding citizens.” Pastor Mike will lead our worship.


The offering for today is for mission support for Albert & Carolyn Strydhorst as they continue their work in Grand Rapids. As the missionary in residence at Calvin Theological Seminary, Albert teaches, studies, writes and encourages the CRC's missions work.

Next week’s offering is for Christian Reformed Home Missions. The mandate of Home Missions is to bring leadership to the CRC in its task of bringing the gospel to the people of Canada and the United States, and drawing them into fellowship with Christ and his church.

This mandate has these aspects:

1. Encourage and assist churches and classes in their work of evangelism.

2. Initiate, support, and guide new church development in cooperation with local churches and classes.

3. Initiate, support, and guide other evangelistic ministries in cooperation with local churches and classes.
