2. We are thankful to be able to announce the suspension of most of our church-wide covid mitigation strategies and practices.
a. All of the mitigation strategies are suspended except for those in letter “c” below.
b. Masks are still available and welcome in the church building but wearing them now is optional.
c. Gifts and offerings will continue to be received at the entrances, along with elements for communion.  The Council will evaluate these practices at their June meeting.

This Sunday
9:30 AM

This Sunday morning, Pastor Bob Bolt will focus our hearts on Jesus’ ascension from Acts chapter 1, under the theme of “Seeing the Gains of a Goodbye”.  We will also have both a word of farewell to our seminary intern Matthew Sun and a baby shower for Matthew and Rebecca Sun’s newborn daughter, Katherine.

5:00 PM
We continue our study of the Old Testament book of Nehemiah.  We will look at chapters 10-11 and learn about the value and craft of “Making and Keeping Solemn Promises to God”.
Thank You for your Gifts, Tithes, and Offerings
Thank you for your generosity to Christ’s Church.  We encourage you to prioritize your local church in your giving because the local church is the bride of Christ, and Jesus is the hope of the world.  We excel in the grace of giving when we honor God with our time, our treasures, and our talents.

Pastor Bob Huisman
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love, 
which binds them all together in perfect unity.  Colossians 3:12-14
