Chamberlain/Oacoma CRC Church Plant: What
will God do next in our region? Many people in Classis Iakota
have been praying for distinctively Reformed new churches. The
Holy Spirit’s response seems to look seriously at these
communities to establish a new CRC. Before moving further than
continued prayer and preliminary observations we desire an
informal listening event over coffee with the people of Corsica,
Harrison, Menno, New Holland, and Platte. Mr. Rick Droog, local
representative of CRC Resonate Global Mission, and Pastor Jack
Gray, convener of the Classis Iakota Church Plant Committee,
want to hear what you think and feel about such a church plant
effort. Please come to the New Holland Fellowship Hall on
Tuesday evening, August 28 at 7:30 p.m. to share how the Holy
Spirit is speaking to you. If you have questions or wish to know
more call 605-271-0794 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
