September 30, 2018

Mission Week ~ Today and next Sunday we focus on missions. Pastor Jake will lead us in worship this morning. As we
focus on missions we are reminded of the missionaries that as a church we support: Jon & Melissa Barlow (Philippines); Rev. Jonathan & Minet Fischer (Maine); Rev. Mike & Gina Johnson (Texas); Rev. Ruth Lemmen (China); Sandi & Mark Nyboer (Hamilton Middle School); Rev.’s Gil & Joyce Suh (Cambodia); Rev. Ray & Esther Vander Laan (That The World May Know Ministry); Hamilton CRC (Hamilton). Let us remember to lift these missionaries and ministries up in prayer daily.

Faith Promise Pledge Cards are available in your church mailbox. Our missionaries depend on financial support from
churches and individuals. Prayerfully consider this week what your commitment will be for the next 12 months to the support of our missionaries. Pledge cards will be collected next Sunday.

Evening Worship Service will be held tonight at 6 pm at our church. Rev. Adam Van Der Stoep will lead us in worship.
