During our service this morning, the Youth Group will report on their Serve Trip to Minneapolis earlier this summer; they will show pictures of the work during the offering time.

Missions Fund Drive: Between now and September 21, the deacons ask that you prayerfully make a contribution to the ongoing support of missions through our Missions Fund. From CRC Home Missions, we will support Rev. Carl and Jan Van Voorst, who are planting a church in Watertown, SD under the supervision of Classis Minnkota. We will also continue to give support to CRC World Missions for Gene and Dawn Michelson, and to Mindy Tarleton’s work in the Czech Republic. We have set a minimum goal of raising $6500.00 to be split evenly. Please place your contribution in an envelope marked “Missions Fund” (or simply write “Missions Fund” on the memo line of your check) and place it in any offering plate. Thank you for your support.
