This week 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 non-formal 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 20th we will take an offering for Resonate Global Mission. The world is at our doorstep. Let’s resonate mission in our neighborhood and around the world. The Christian Reformed Church has a rich history of sending missionaries, planting churches, engaging students through campus ministry and international schools, and a passion for fulfilling the great commission. We are excited about continuing this work as Resonate Global Mission! Now we are joining with God on mission both here in North America and around the globe. People all over the world are hungry to hear about the saving grace of Jesus Christ! Together we can reach across cultural barriers and forge partnerships within new communities of faith. Thank you for your prayers and support

Food for Thought: 

What does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God and to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your souls and to observe the Lord's commands and decrees .... Deuteronomy 10:12,13. This is the purpose of our lives!
