Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
Our Mother’s day message theme is “OVERWHELMED” from John 7:37-37.
Emotion.  Frustration.  Worry.  Many things overwhelm us.
Jesus’ promise in our Scripture lesson is for anyone who has been overwhelmed.
In John 7, we hear Jesus’ invitation to come to him if we are thirsty and rivers of living water will flow from us.

We will also have an opportunity to give thanks to God for another season of our Friendship Ministry and to hear about the growth of our Community Garden.

Sanctuary Renewal Project.  Consider giving a gift during the month of May to help fully fund this exciting opportunity to refresh and enhance our sanctuary stage, sound, and function!

Check out the opportunities at the Ministry Fair in the Fellowship Room!  This is the last Sunday they will be available in the Fellowship Room.  Keep an eye out for an email or on our website for future opportunities to volunteer.

Reminder: Bring a non-perishable food item for the food distribution ministry with our friends and neighbors at Byron Village.  Place it on the table in the Fellowship Room.

5:00 PM – Family Day – No Evening Worship

Summer Worship in the ARK
Our Sanctuary Renewal Project is set to begin on Monday, June 13.  We will worship in the ARK from Sunday, June 19 through the end of August/beginning of September.  Our staff and volunteers are making plans for our transition.  If you would like to help us in the process, please call the church office (616.878.1992) or contact one of our staff members.

SummerSongs! – Send your Suggestions!
This summer, our morning worship services will focus our hearts on the book of Psalms – our biblical songbook or prayer, praise, and lament.  The Psalms are the favorites of many Christians.  We would love to focus on your most beloved Psalms.  There are not enough weeks in the summer to examine all 150 Psalms.  That’s where you come in.  Please send in your top 1, 2, or 3 favorite Psalms for consideration this summer.  Simply email or text Pastor Bob your suggestions and we will choose from the totals of your recommendations. or 616.682.7685

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
