A sincere and humble THANK YOU to all for your thoughts and prayers and acts of kindness this past week. I’ve been told God heard from many of you as well as others I do not even know, praying on my behalf concerning my head injury. By God’s amazing grace, I am blessed to be home and slowly getting back to routine activity. I will be tested/evaluated at a concussion clinic this week and anticipating a prescription for outpatient therapy. Romans 8:28. God’s got this! Patty Ligtenberg

Thank You! Huge thanks to all who stepped up to take part in helping with the community VBS program. We had nearly 70 kids each day learning about the true words of hope found in the Bible. VBS makes a difference in the lives of our community’s children as well as throughout the world. This year the VBS offerings went to support the world-impacting work of Words of Hope. If you missed out on working with this year’s program, plan to get involved next year when our church family is in charge of the week’s planning and leading. God willing, we will guide children to Jesus Tuesday, May 27 – Friday, May 30, 2025. Mark your calendars now!

Do you have a need? Or know someone in need in our church family? Please contact Elaine DeVries at 680-4181 or Laura Noteboom at 201-9171 with requests for church family support. No need is too great or too small when we all work together to meet it.

Grace/CRC Church Family: “Rejoice with those who rejoice! Walk beside the weary.” If you are interested in being on a list of those helping to meet needs of our church family, please contact Elaine DeVries at 680-4181 or Laura Noteboom at 201-9171. This may involve anything from meal prep to yard work so all are welcome to be part of a contact list about needs. You may then decide if you can help with that particular need.
