Welcome! We are glad you
have joined us in worship. We welcome Rev. Jerry
Buwalda of Sioux Falls as he leads us in worship this morning.
The worship service this evening will be led by musicians from
the Corsica and Harrison congregations who have been practicing
together for the last couple of months. Come and enjoy an
evening of singing, guitar and accordion music, all used praise
and worship our God. All are invited to stay for refreshments
and fellowship following worship.
Next week we worship at the CRC for
both services with Dr. Maynard Koerner of Sioux Falls preaching.
We are looking for a pastor host family for the next two
Sundays. Please contact Kim Zomer or Bernard Schelling if you
are able to serve in this way.
