Good evening everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
We've all lost things (people, jobs, dreams) and we're all broken in some ways. God has something to say about it. In fact, God is in the restoration business, so to speak. This morning, we heard about, sung about and gave thanks for restoration. Restoration is happening here - you're invited and will be warmly welcomed every Sunday at 10:30am.
We held our worship service downstairs in the Van Wyk Fellowship Hall due to the ongoing heat wave in our area. We pray you all stay cool during this heat wave.
There will be no new episode of Christopher's Chat once again this week due to technical issues. Please check out our other episodes of Christopher's Chat on our YouTube channel, firstreformedsb1900.
