This week we will take an offering for Operation Manna Sunday. Your generous gift will help ministries and Canadian CRC’s like ours love and bless their communities in the name of Jesus. Again, this isn’t just another offering to another cause; it’s about the people who will be reached through your gift. May each of us give as we have been blessed. The brochure you received today has more information on the OM Program and Diaconal Ministries Canada. You can also make a one-time donation or become a monthly partner on our website: diaconalministries.com

Next Sunday, May 13th 

We will take an offering for support for Albert & Carolyn Strydhorst. Albert is doing ministry with the Timothy Leadership Training Institute in Grand Rapids. TLT is a nonformal inductive learning program for church and lay leaders around the world. They have training materials in 20 different languages, and these materials are available in more than 40 countries. Thousands of pastors and evangelists have been trained in TLT in the past 20 years. Please continue to keep Albert & Carolyn and their family in your prayers. They are very thankful for our ongoing spiritual and financial support.

Next Sunday, May 13th 

We welcome Pastor Gary Bomhof as he leads us in worship. We will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together and focusing on the Ascension of Jesus.

Food for Thought: 

Lord, hear our prayer! Listen to our plea! Don't turn away from us in our time of distress. Bend down to listen, and answer us quickly when we call to you...and the Lord says: Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great things you do not know…Psalm 102:1,2 & Jeremiah 33:3. The Lord will surely hear and have the answer ready before we even call to Him!
