Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
Perfect Love.  What would it mean to love someone perfectly?  The Bible says that Jesus loved his disciples and “loved them to the end.”  The final weekend of Jesus’ life here on earth began with washing his disciple’s feet.  As we continue to prepare for our celebration of Resurrection Sunday, we will explore John 13 with the tool that is available in the Navigators booklet, The Invitation: 30 Days to a Changed Life.  If you would like to take this 30-day challenge.  Pick up your copy in the office today.  See more info below.  Glenn VanderKooi, from our Prayer Encouragement Team, will offer a brief prayer ministry update.

11:00 AM The Invitation 
Gather in the Prayer Room before dividing into triads.

5:00 PM – Sunday Evening Worship
“JOY”.  We continue our study of Paul’s missionary letter to the church in Philippi.  Chapter 2 will call us to make Jesus’ joy complete by pursuing our unity in Christ.

The INVITATION – 30 Days to a Changed Life
The Invitation – 30 Days to a Changed Life
Start Date: Sunday, March 6.  Gathering Dates: Sundays March 13, 20 and 27 from 11:00-11:45
Are you interested in helping our community grow stronger in faith?
God is inviting you to a daily time with Him.  The invitation is for 30 consecutive days of responding to the Father’s invitation to know him.  Take the 30-day challenge to a deeper walk with God.
Life today is like whitewater rafting.  The demands of work, social media, family, and friends push and pull us in multiple directions.  The Invitation is a devotional booklet from the Navigators Church Resources that will help you learn four simple disciplines to practice a daily time with God:


Each day there is a single Bible verse or two to read and the following questions to answer:

“Lord, where’s my heart today?”
“Lord help me discover new truth from your Word today.”
“Lord, what is your Spirit’s thought for me today from your Word?”
“Lord, what are you asking me to do?”

When we gather, we will break up into triads (3 people) to discuss something that God has drawn our attention to during the past week of readings/reflection/devotion.

The Invitation begins on the first Sunday of Lent, March 6.

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
