CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION

This past Thursday our Father in heaven took our beloved sister, Reka Andringa, to be with Him in heavenly glory. We express our sympathy to the Andringa families and pray God would comfort their souls with His Word. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:4) The funeral service will be on Tuesday, August 4, at 10:00 a.m. Visitation will be after 5:00 p.m. on Monday at the Oolman Funeral Home in Hull with the family present from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Let us remember these saints and their families in our prayers. Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; (Psalm 33:18)
We would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the congregation for the thoughts and prayers, cards, meals, and visits rendered due to my recent surgery. We thank God for healing mercies and confess even in trials, “I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1 Veryl and Kandace Heynen and family.
