Next Sunday, February 4th 

We welcome August Luymes as he leads us in worship, focusing on Acts 10:1-23 and “The Gospel: For You, In You, Through You!”


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.

Congratulations to Els Ebens with her birthday on Friday and Peter Mooy with his birthday on Saturday. To both of you, we pray for the Lord’s richest of blessings as you celebrate with family and friends and in coming year! J

Do remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: please keep Jenny Bajema, Klaas Boskers, Rena DeRuiter, Lea Dykstra and Ernie Stebner in your prayers.
