This Week at First Reformed ~ 7/22/2018

Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

We welcomed the Rev. Kenneth Tenckinck to our pulpit today. Pastor Christopher is on a break through Friday, July 27th. Rev. Tenckinck has served as the Director of The Warwick Conference Center and Camp Warwick since 1994. He is a graduate of Hope College in Holland, Michigan and New Brunswick Theological Seminary in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Before coming to the Warwick Conference Center, he served the First Reformed Church of Astoria in Long Island City, NY (Classis of Queens) and Bethel Reformed Church in Sheldon, Iowa (Classis of East Sioux).

Rev. Tenckinck's message was "At The Feet of Jesus", based on scripture from 2 Samuel 7:1-17 and Mark 6:30-44.

For further information, or if you are able to volunteer any time, please speak with Tommy Van Winkle. If you are interested in helping with decorating, please see Sherry Dapcic or Tommy Van Winkle.

Registration is open for students entering pre-k (age 3 by June 1, 2018 and potty-trained) through sixth grade in September 2018. You may register by going to our VBS page.

Refreshments will be served. For more information, please speak with Thomas Van Winkle.
