Advent Begins With a New Worship Series on Angels

Sunday, November 29 marks the first Sunday of Advent. Join us as we prepare for the season of Advent and look forward to the coming of Christ! Along with traditional candle lighting, devotions, & prayer, this Advent season will also include a worship series on angels. We will learn about these loyal creatures who do his bidding in praise, delivering messages, and providing hospitality, protection, and deliverance.

Please join us to worship during this Advent season! Listen on Facebook live, cruise into our drive-in venue, or worship in-person in our spacious, socially-distanced auditorium! (Per governor’s executive orders, congregants are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings during religious services.)

Joint Community Worship Service – Sunday, Sept 6th

Join us this Sunday, September 6, for a joint Community Worship Service at 10 am in the west Gerber parking lot! This service is provided by First Reformed Church, 1st Christian Reformed, 2nd Christian Reformed, and Church of the Living Christ. There are 2 venue seating options: bring a lawn chair and sit on the west grass area and listen via speakers, or sit in one’s car (drive-in style) and listen via radio. Communion will be served, & attendants will be masked for your protection. Prepare your hearts according to 1 Corinthians 11:28.

Take this job and love it! It is our calling as Christians to work as unto the Lord. Our work is more than drudgery and a means to make money – it is a way to honor and serve our God. The occupation of janitor is as holy as the occupation of minister! Join us for a joint worship service as we learn how God is honored by our work, and how all work should be done for God’s glory.

Following Jesus in Crazy Times – New Sermon Series

The times are crazy. A virus more contagious and more dangerous than Covid-19 is attacking us. We are infected with seemingly incurable division. People are confused and angry! The internet carries everyone’s opinion on everything everywhere. Truth pays the price. Civil strife is rampant. In the midst of such craziness, where do Christians stand, and how should we act?

Graduation Sunday June 14th

Your invited to worship with us this Sunday June 14 as we celebrate our 2020 Graduates…their future plans.  There is no greater time, perhaps, when one is more filled with hope about what life will bring, than when you graduate (High School/College).  Your life is before you and you are setting out to make decisions that will assuredly bring you the most awesome life ever!  It is great to have that kind of hope.  But what matters most might not be what you think.

Job Openings

We are accepting resumes for office asst. and janitor positions. Resumes may be turned in to the office, or Pastor Joel, Tom VanDusen, Doug Johnson, Judy Vissia, Dave Deur, Sarah Cummins, Kent Hartger or Luke Stroven by June 14th.
