9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
This Sunday we face the biblical question, “Why, my soul, are you downcast?”.
Our new series, SummerSongs, continues with an exploration of Psalms 42 and Psalm 43 – thought to originally have been one single poem.
How is it possible to pray to God with
Both an admission of suffering
And a determination to hope?
Psalms 42 and 43 will help us!
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 Sunday Evening Worship
Huisman and son.
Our son, Josiah (or Joey as we affectionally refer to him) Huisman (and a “son of the congregation”) will be leading us in worship on Sunday. This is his dad’s unashamed plug for you to join us and encourage him on his journey through seminary. Joey has completed two years at Western Seminary and currently works at First Reformed Church in Zeeland. He will be sharing a message from Luke 11 on “The Parable of the Friend at Midnight”. Joey agreed with a few weeks’ notice to fill this preaching spot after Pastor Dan’s stroke.
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.
Summer Worship in the ARK
Our Sanctuary Renewal Project began on Monday, June 13. We will worship in the ARK from Sunday, June 19 through the end of August/beginning of September. 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 – Thank You!
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. Thank you for your suggestions. We have twice as many suggestions as Sundays in the series. Some Sundays we will combine some of the suggestions if the Psalms are similar in focus e.g. lament, praise of our Creator, etc. Looking forward to digging deeper with you into the Bible’s songbook for life!

Your elders and deacons pray for you often. They ask that you also pray for them.
They love to minister with you face to face but they also welcome calls, emails, or texts with prayer requests or reasons to praise God for what He has done.

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
