CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION
Monica Wiersma is asked to write to Gary Brummel and Kalista Heynen to Derick Grimm.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to our church family for your prayers, acts of kindness, and words of encouragement these last couple of months as Jeanine has recovered from surgery and her infection. Her final drain has been removed, and now we wait upon the LORD to see if the infection will return as she continues to heal. We covet your prayers as we walk day by day along the path He has laid before us. We find our comfort in such passages as John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” The John Huizenga Family
At its meeting this past week, Classis West examined Mr. Ryan Barnhill with a view to admitting him to the ministry. Mr. Barnhill’s gifts for the work were evident.
