CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION
Evan Bleyenberg is asked to write to Gary Brummel and Nate Maassen to Derick Grimm.
Let us continue to remember our widows, widowers, elderly, and all those who frequently, if not always, are unable to gather with us for worship on the Lord’s Day (Jack Andringa, Zach Andringa, Gary Brummel, Derick Grimm, Margaret Hoekstra, Bonnie Hoksbergen, Catherine Kooiker, Minard & Cora Van Den Top, and Norm Vogel). Let us continue to remember them in our prayers as well as with cards and visits.
We would like to thank the congregation for their generosity of helping in various ways before and after Julia was born. It is a beautiful testament to the joy of fellowship within the body of Christ, and we are especially grateful to be able to share that with Lai Yin’s mom (Yuk Ki) as the Lord daily leads her to know Him as her Savior. “The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.” Ruth 2:12. David and Lai Yin Baldwin
