9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship

Invite a friend to join us for part 3 of our new Church Renewal Sermon Series this Sunday on Micah 6:8 – What Does the Lord Require of Us? To Act Justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly with our God.  We will also have the opportunity to participate in Operation Christmas Child and a June 2-9 project in Guatemala.

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
We return to our series, “We Belong” and will explore the connections between humility and trusting God’s providential care of the universe and our lives.  Our Scripture will be 

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
