‘An Upside Down World’  - is a conference that ties in with our current sermon series and will be held on October 22 & 23 at Community Church in Zeeland.  As our nation continues to be embroiled in controversy concerning race and social justice, many churches have followed suit, applying Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality to these issues. This conference seeks to expose CRT/I teaching for what it really is: a false religion. Join us as we highlight the truthfulness of the gospel, protect Christ’s people from the error, and equip the church to engage our communities with true biblical justice.  If you are would like more information or would like to register for this conference, use the following link:  www.upsidedownconference.com     See flyer on the bulletin board in the church basement.

 

Thought for the Week:

How beautiful God’s love is for us.  So broad, so deep, so clear.  A gift that’s rich and personal.  A joy that’s always near.

--Peggy Ferrell, in Poems and Prayers

===============================

September 12, 2021 

Welcome!   With love and joy let us worship God and strive to grow in grace.  Come now, let us worship and have fellowship together.   

 

—Today we celebrate the Lord’s Supper during the morning worship service.  Visitors, if you are a church member in good standing and have professed your faith in Christ Jesus publicly, we invite you to come to the table of our Lord with us.

Communion Banner Symbolism:  The bread (wafer circle) and wine (chalice) are shown in combination with the natural elements of wheat and grapes.  The red cross symbolizes the blood of Jesus shed for the forgiveness of sins.

—Everyone is invited to the church basement following our morning worship service for a time of fellowship, coffee/punch, and cookies.
