Pastor Shaun will be at Beaverdam this evening. Next week Sunday, January 26, Pastor Shaun will lead us in the January Series as he preaches on John 11:35.

‘Cards For Christ’: Ladies – on the last Thursday of every month, there will be an opportunity for you to gather in fellowship at a designated host home. During this time of intentional, multi-generational fellowship, we will be able to share our time together with conversation and laughter, and also share our gifts of encouragement to others in the church family through the making of handwritten cards. Let’s show others the love of Christ through our time and words expressed through this lost art! Writing cards not your thing? No problem, come and fellowship anyways! Looking forward to seeing you at our first ‘Cards For Christ’ event at the home of Sue Arendsen (10353 Felch Street) on Thursday, January 30, from 7:00-8:30 PM. Please RSVP to Amanda Furniss if you plan to attend! (616.350.7857 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
