Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship

We gather to worship Jesus, who saves his people from their sins.
As we worship God and pray, we will continue our Advent Series: Let There Be Light.  Our focus this Sunday will be “The Light of Peace” from from Numbers 6.  We will also celebrate with our Sunday School students as they present “The ABC’s of Christmas”.

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.

11:00 AM – Congregational Meeting
Our annual congregational meeting to approve the ministry budget for 2024 will be held in the sanctuary following our morning worship service at approximately 11:00 AM.  Grab a cup of coffee [with a lid :)] and join in to see how God is using our gathered gifts for his honor and glory!

5:30 and 6:00 Outdoor Live Nativity
LIVE NATIVITY – On December 10 at 5:30 and 6:00 PM.
We are hosting our Live Nativity outside on the front lawn here at church. We will be acting out the Luke 2 story while having live animals for kids to come in and pet. Invite family, friends, and neighbors to attend with you.
Take some time and pray about who God might be calling you to invite. Join us for a great night. Donuts, hot chocolate, and gifts for the kids 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
