Today’s offering is for the Calvin Theological Seminary. 

Calvin Theological Seminary is about preparing faithful, creative and compassionate leaders, who will nurture disciples, renew churches and be bearers of shalom to a world in turmoil. Its Reformed approach to theological education uniquely equips students to face the complexities of ministry in this rapidly changing world

Our next offering is 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. Thank you for your prayers and support.

    Next Sunday, September 8th 

    Pastor Jake will be beginning a short 3-week series called The 3 T’s. We will be reflecting on Time, Talents (our gifts), and Treasure. We will begin with Matthew 25:31-46 and Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, Time: God’s Plan for Our Time. Time is limited and we all have the same amount of it every day. So how do we use our time, who do we use our time for? Time is also precious and we have only so much of it to spend, so how we use our time while here on earth is important.
