Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Morning Worship
In this Easter season, we continue to proclaim,
Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!
This Sunday, we celebrate the professions of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of 8 of our middle school students.  Some of their favorite songs will be part of our worship and Pastor Kevin will open God’s word with us from Matthew 14:22-33 under the theme, “Lord of My Life”.

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 AM Church-wide Potluck in the ARK
We are having an all-church potluck meal in the Ark. Join us for a great time of fun, food, conversation, and spending time getting to know and connect with people from church. Please bring a main course and a salad if you are able. Table service, drinks and dessert will be provided. No need to sign up, just show up.

12:30 AM Baptism at Van Singel Lake
After the potluck at 12:30 PM, Dalanie Bares will receive the sacrament of baptism at Van Singel Lake.  Join us at 6751 Pleasant Hill in Byron Center.  

5:00 PM – Evening Worship
We continue our series this Sunday evening entitled The Big Ten – refreshing our understanding of the Ten Commandments as teachers of sin and rules of gratitude.  We will seek to discover how the words of Jesus affect our understanding of the Law.  This week we will focus on the third commandment and the words of Exodus 3 where God reveals his name.  The reflections of the Heidelberg Catechism will help inform our study.

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
