This Sunday, July 31st, will be an Open Question Sunday led by Pastor Chris Boehnke. Please feel free to text your questions to Pastor Chris at 616-843-6128. Questions should be centered on the theme; “The Life and Teachings of Jesus”.
August 7th we welcome guest speaker, Pastor James Stoltenberg. Pastor Stoltenberg will share personal witness about Food For The Poor's mission to care for the destitute as a means of living out the Gospel mandate to love one another. Pastor Stoltenberg has been a pastor for over 41 years. He has a great passion for the poor and has led over 20 Servant Events taking teenagers into the Appalachian Mountains. These trips taught many things including that we can learn from the poor, Jesus was a servant, and how we can be servants too. Many who participated in these trips are now using their careers to help the impoverished. Please join us as we welcome Pastor Stoltenberg on Sunday, August 7th.

These items are then re-purposed for cat litter, hydro-seeding mulch, and small animal bedding. Please note, this bin does not accept any plastic, metal, glass, cardboard or paperboard (cereal box material). We will continue to recycle those “other” products in our blue bin located in the kitchen. Tell your friends they are welcome to use it! Thank you for your support of this program! We received our first check for $ 25!! WAY to GO!!
At the end of worship you are invited to come to the Prayer Room (the door in the Worship Center next to the Kitchen) and receive prayer for whatever need you may be facing. You may also write your prayer requests on the back of Sunday's Connection Card.
