Weekly news from Ellsworth CRC
Thank you for all your congratulations and support in the last two weeks following Abram's birth. He and Sarah are both doing well. It was a great gift to be able to spend more time with Judah, Sarah, and Abram. I'm eager to preach again on Sunday!
Last Sunday, we heard God's word from Romans 3:21-26. Pastor Dave Kroon wove together stories from Abraham to Christ to show how our righteousness comes as a gift from God. Watch the sermon below:

Next Sunday, April 18
We'll return to the book of Luke in chapter 24:13-35, one of my favorite stories in this gospel. Two of Jesus' followers leave Jerusalem weighed down by broken hopes. On the way, Jesus meets them and reveals himself to them - first in scriptures, then in the breaking of bread. May our eyes be opened to the wondrous hope of the gospel: He is risen indeed!
The livestream is available on our church website, ellsworthcrc.org/live starting at 9:50am.
Blessings and Peace,
