WELCOME! Today we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, promised to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We also celebrate communion this morning. All active members of a Bible-believing church are invited to share the Lord’s Supper. Grape juice is served in the middle of the trays, while the outer ring is wine.

Combined Worship: This evening Harrison Community Church will be hosting a community worship service at 7:00 p.m. in the North Church. Dan Everson will be the guest musician and an offering will be taken for Paschal Andrew and God’s Way Christian School which he has started in Tanzania. Following the worship service refreshments will be served.

Summer Sermon Series: Pastor Scott is planning a summer sermon series "Glad You Asked." In order to put the series together, he would like the congregation to submit questions they would like answered in a message. Questions can include questions about a Bible passage, a theological question, questions about living out our faith or another relevant topic. He will gather them and put the summer series together. You can put the questions in his box at Grace or the CRC.

Advance Notice: We are planning an outdoor worship service at one of the chapels along 90 for July 16th in the afternoon. More details to follow.

We extend Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Bernie Beukelman. Bernie passed away Friday, March 19 and was laid to rest this past Monday. We also extend deep sympathy to Terri Wisdom and family following the passing of her step-daughter Kristi in Kansas City. May God give comfort and peace to those who grieve these losses.


Prayers for God’s People:

  • Please continue to pray for those in our church family dealing with health issues: Shelly Menning, Lucille Noteboom, Darlene Lefers, Chad Rus, Joyce Brink, Darrell VandenHoek, and Birdie Schoon. Please continue to pray for our church family members and their family members fighting cancer and other illnesses: Natalie Nydam and Chad Wentland.

  • Please pray for families in our church as they care for loved ones in need on a daily basis, as well as for the health of our church family members, especially those most vulnerable in the nursing home and Leisure Living.

  • Luke 15 Prayer List: If you would like to have someone included on our "Luke 15" list, place just the first name of that person in either Pastor Scott's, or Kim Z or Kris VZ church mailbox for inclusion. Just mark them as for the Luke 15 list. We will place this in the bulletin so the Family of God can pray that the prodigal will come to the awareness that their Heavenly Father is calling them back home. Any questions, please reach out to Pastor Scott.


Happy Birthday to Hope Menning (May 29), Bridget Veurink (May 31), Terri Wisdom, Rae Nelson (June 2). Happy Anniversary to Scott & Sheryl Muckey (June 3). Hope you have a great day!
