Good evening everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This week is All Saints Sunday. During worship, we remembered family and friends who were called Home to God.
Also, the Rev. Don McCracken served as guest minister. Rev. McCracken serves as Pastor/Director of The River Mission in Hackensack, Homeless and Community Outreach at the Second Reformed Church in Hackensack. He will be here with us again next Sunday. Elder Kevin Kooistra will lead worship on November 17th.
Please pray for Pastor Christopher's safety and for inspiration as well as for his family. If you have pastoral needs during this time, please contact Elders Kevin Kooistra or Catherine Wasdyke.
Pastor Christopher returns from Israel late on November 8th. He will then take some reflection and recovery time. He is very, very grateful for this precious gift and looks forward to sharing stories, pictures, insights and inspiration with the congregation and community.
