Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Morning Worship
In this Pentecost season, we continue to pray,
Creator God, who formed humanity from the dust, breathe in me again.  Revive me and sanctify me by the power of your Holy Spirit.
Set my heart on fire with the good news of your Gospel.

This Sunday, we gather to worship our Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Our focus returns to Jesus’ wisdom recorded in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew chapters 5-7.  We will examine Jesus’ warnings regarding giving to the poor, prayer, and fasting.
As we hear Jesus’ warnings about prayer and see his example of prayer, be sure to pick up a Free Prayer Journal available in the Fellowship Room.
Also, we will install new elders and deacons into their offices for three-year terms of service.  Heather Oosterman will give an update from our Kid’s Hope Ministry.
Finally, we will introduce our new, first-ever, part time Director of Children’s Ministry who will help us share the love, compassion, and good news of Jesus with the young families in our church and community.

Coming in June/July:
June 9, Discover Heritage New Member Class,11:00-1:00, includes lunch.
June 23, “Service Sunday“, 5:00 PM, prepare gifts and blessings for our missionary partners.

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 – Evening Worship
Our evening worship gathering will examine the 5th commandment, “Honor your father and mother.”  This commandment also calls us to honor, love, and support all those in authority over us.  

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
