PRAYERS AND PRAISES

Congratulations to Chad and Morgan (Uphoff) Lubben who were united in marriage Saturday. We wish you God’s rich blessings as you unite your two lives into one and serve the Lord together.

We would like to say thank-you for all the expressions of love and concern shown to us in so many ways, in the loss of our Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. We feel so blessed by the fellowship of believers.
 --The Family of Wilma Van't Hul

Thank you for all the prayers, concerns, words of encouragement, visits, food, and above all, God's healing hands through modern medicine with my shoulder surgery.   -- Cal Lubben

The Buwalda family thanks you for your prayers and encouragement through visits, cards, remembrances, and comforting words as we mourn the loss of our son James.  The love and support of our Christian family makes all the difference.  You are a wonderful blessing to us.
-- Pastor Jerry and Sharon

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers so far. Please continue to pray for me and my family as our journey continues.
– Mark Engeltjes

New address: John Sas is now residing in Room 110 in Edgebrook Care Center.

Final week: Our congregation has been selected to participate in a CRC survey that provides the denomination with the benefit of hearing members’ views on several areas of our ministries as a denomination. The survey requires the use of a computer with internet access; it will take from 20-45 minutes. Your responses are anonymous. Visit www.crcna.org/survey/6649.

Looking for inspiration? – Plan to attend Inspire 2017, August 3-5 in Detroit, Michigan. This one-of-a-kind event was designed for people like you, who are actively serving in their local church. Come and be nourished in great worship, explore new ministry tools, and be challenged by presenters with a story. Gather to refresh, refocus, and reimagine how our shared calling finds expression in our local communities and beyond. Visit crcna.org/Inspire2017 to register.
