BELATED ANNIVERSARY wishes to Rev. Peter and Jo Mans who celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on December 22! 


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Wilma Groen who will celebrate her 83rd birthday on Thursday, January 6!  


FROM THE COUNCIL: Thank the Lord that we can feel the closeness and warmth of our church family through worship and praise.

• Pray for the lonely and isolated who have not been able to be with their families during this Christmas season.  

• Pray for those struggling with flood damage and loss and most recently, extreme cold. May they find true peace and happiness through the blessing of Jesus coming to us as a baby and paying the price for our salvation. 

• Pray for: Marlo and Carol De Young, Adrian and Marilyn Kooiman, Arlene and Eileen De Young and Stan and Sharon De Vries.
