Save the Date!
This summer take a MONUMENTAL look at God’s greatness, June 6-10 at Vacation Bible School. We will explore the vastness of God’s love while trekking through the story of Joseph.
Vacation Bible School needs socks! Used for staining nativity pieces (so no holes). We’ll take your pairs or singles or that lonely one left in the dryer. A collection box is by the mailboxes.
It is with deep gratitude that I thank Pastor Mark for his visits and prayers during the last few weeks. Also, to everyone for their prayers and ways of reaching out to me in my diagnosis and surgery. We serve a Mighty God who hears and answers prayers and calms our every fear.

A huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who joined the prayer service on March 15 and gave money to help with feeding and sheltering Ukrainians who have fled their homes due to the Russian Invasion. $8,737 was raised and sent directly to Vasya and Maranda Heytsi for their continuing work there. Please continue to pray for them! If you would still like to give to this cause, please send a check to First CRC or Bethel CRC of Edgerton and put “Ukraine” in the memo.
