Today’s offering is for Calvin Seminary.

The Christian Reformed Church urgently needs well-trained pastors and leaders. People are hungry for leaders who can dig into the deep places of Scripture and bring out the treasures we need to sustain us in a world grown chilly from human sin and folly. We need educated and gifted pastors whose training is portable into new ministry settings that increasingly stretch around the globe. Our gifts today help students for ministry at Calvin Seminary.

Next week’s offering

will be for Fuente de Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We remember this church as they continue to reach the lost people of Ensenada and pray for our church members who travel to there to help with building and outreach projects as needed.
