Infant Needs Pantry ~ The Love INC Infant Baby Needs Pantry drive for donations has been coming along well – but is still in need of a few things. Items needed are: baby wipes, lotion, shampoo, baby oil, bottles, baby wash, larger afghans for girls and boys, rattles or small toys. Each year baskets for newborns are given to expecting moms or new moms. These baskets are greatly appreciated and are a loving gesture. The pantry is coordinated by Bentheim Reformed Church and blesses the lives of the youngest who are precious in His sight! If you would like to donate items for these baskets, your donations can be brought to the Love INC office in Hamilton.

Looking for Inspiration ~ Plan to join 2,000 other CRC servants at Inspire 2017, August 3-5 in Detroit, Michigan. This one-of-a-kind event is designed for people like you, who are actively serving their local congregations and communities. Be nourished by meaningful worship, be challenged by great presenters, and explore new ministry tools. Join us as we gather as CRC people to refresh, refocus and reimagine how our shared calling finds expression in our local communities and beyond. Don’t miss this opportunity. Register today at crcna.org/Inspire2017.

Pray for Inspire 2017 ~ Inspire 2017 is a conference to connect people from across the 1,000+ churches in the Christian Reformed Church for three days of worship, workshops, speakers and conversation. As we plan and prepare for this event, happening August 3-5 in Detroit, Michigan, please join us in praying for the event and all who will attend. This week, please pray for breakout speakers in sessions about family, marriage, parenting and doing life together in community. Pray for them as they make decisions about topics and as they prepare messages. Pray that God will guide them as they present and discuss, and that people will be blessed by their words and ideas.
