Requested & Expanded Announcements

May 31, 2015

Thank You to our youth for leading us in worship this morning.  Pray for the final details of their mission  trip.  They will be departing from the church parking lot on Sunday, June 14 at 5 am.  Anyone is welcome   to come to church before 5 am for their send-off.  See the information in the June newsletter for details     on their mission trip.

Thank You ~ The Women’s Division of Bible League International Volunteers thanks all those who contributed to providing Bible study materials and Bibles to waiting believers in South America.    Continue to pray with us for the provision of God’s Word to a lost and needy world.  Thank you for  serving the local church and other partners by providing Bibles for them to use in their ministry of    helping people meet Jesus Christ.

Address Directory ~ If you have not already done so, please check the proof pages of the address directory       to make sure your information (cell phone, email address, landline, mailing address).  We want to print a              new directory soon.

Small Group Bible Study will meet on Tuesday, June 9 at 7 pm at the Royal Park Atrium.  We will be discussing lesson 4, God Punishes Sin.

Graduation Basket ~ Items for the graduation baskets may be placed in the fellowship hall through today.   One basket will be sent to New City Kids where Deborah Lemmen is program director and the other   basket will be given to Becky Dingus who graduated from Hamilton High School and will be attending                Calvin College this fall.

Love INC Community Service ~ The Hamilton Area Love INC Community Service will be held on Sunday,   June 7 at 6 pm at Overisel Reformed Church.  Dr. Virgil Gulker, founder of Kid’s Hope USA and Love INC     will be speaking on the topic:  Churches That Walk the Talk.  Research conducted by Virgil’s  students at   Hope College reveals that over 50% of our youth are leaving the church.  They blame that exodus on  churches that seem far better at professing faith in the sanctuary than practicing that faith in the community.  There will also be client testimony to better understand how Love INC helps mobilize churches to “Walk the Talk” partnering with prayer, personal time and funds.
