Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

This Week:
Sunday, March 1
9:30 –  Upside Down Easter is our new series for the season of Lent 2020.  Like Jesus in the wilderness for 40 days, we spend 40 days preparing for our celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection.  We started this week on Ash Wednesday with the imposition of ashes that were prepared by our 5th graders burning last year’s palm fronds and adding olive oil to them.
This Sunday, we continue our preparation as Pastor Bob Bolt leads us from God’s Word regarding Mary of Bethany.
11:00: Education and Fellowship Hour
11:00 – Sunday Morning Prayer Summit in the Council Room
5:00 –  The words of Jesus from John chapter 8 are some of the most difficult to hear in the whole gospel.  As we continue our journey through the Gospel of John, we will explore Chapter 8 under the theme: “FREEDOM”.

Saturday, 5:00-8:00 in the ARK,  Movie and Fun Night for Kids & Family 5:00-8:00 – Cookie Making, Pizza and Movie Night for kids from Heritage, Kid’s Hope, Byron Village, and last year’s Art Camp.  Pray for relationships and community connections to grow.
