Christian Reformed Conference Grounds still has seats available for the “Journey On” fundraising dinner and concert on
Saturday, April 28. The evening of fellowship, food and worship will begin at 6 pm with punch bowl and then a dinner of braised BBQ beef and chicken will begin at 6:30 with a concert to follow. The concert will feature dueling pianos by local favorites Kristin Bredeweg and Kurt VanderSchuur, along with the vocal talent of MacKenzie Segard and Casey Huls. This fundraiser is an effort to get our director, Mike Perton, who has committed to walk the Appalachian Trail in an effort to raise funds for debt reduction, out on the trail. The dinner is sponsored by two anonymous donors which means every dollar that is pledge and donated will go 100% toward debt reduction. We would love to have you join us! Contact the office at 616.842.4478 to reserve your spot. To learn more about this concert or Mike’s hike visit the website at www.crcg.org.

Justice, Heroes and Jesus ~ The pervasive nature of injustice can make our efforts to seek justice to feel insignificant.
