Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
New Creation
On the fourth Sunday after Easter, we celebrate the profession of faith and baptism of Amanda DeWitt.  Pastor Kevin will open God’s Word with us from 2 Corinthians 5 under the theme, “A  New Creation”.  We will also welcome the Joel and Lisa DeVries family along with the Jeff and Caitlin Schierbeek family.
Amanda will be baptized at Van Single Lake behind the home of Tom and Judy Johnson at 2331 Pleasant Pond in Byron Center at 11:30 AM.

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.

11:30 – Sacrament of Baptism
2331 Pleasant Pond SW, Byron Center, Michigan.  Please celebrate with us.

5:00 PM – Sunday Evening Worship

We will gather to lift up the name of Jesus above every other name and to worship our great God and King.  Our only comfort of belonging to Jesus in life and in death is enjoyed by being aware of three things.  The first is how great our sin and misery are.  We will look at the biblical truths summarized in Lord’s Day 3 of the Heidelberg Catechism and ask the question, “How total is our total depravity?”.  What is the difference between total depravity and absolute depravity?  And where is our hope?  Genesis 6, Psalm 36, and John 3 will guide us.
We will also cast lots for new elders and deacons during our worship time.  

6:30 PM – A Night to Remember

Listening Event
Our Church Renewal Team will listen to our charter members and founders of Heritage CRC.  We want to learn more about our roots from those who have been here for 40 or more years.  If you would like to listen in on their stories, please join us.  Dessert will be provided.

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
