FOCUS ON MISSIONS

Hispanic Ministry Developer - Pastor Scott Geurink continues to minister to Hispanics in the Western Michigan area with evangelistic Bible Studies in greenhouses and farms, mentoring and coaching Hispanic leaders and pastors, and assisting in the training of church planters.

 

 

 

 

Furniss Family:  We give thanks to the Lord for the remarkable progress that Pastor Shaun’s dad has made in the last few days as he has been removed from the ventilator and has had the feeding tube replaced with a less invasive way to get nourishment.  He still has an incredible amount of congestion related to his double pneumonia and so pray for continued steps toward healing.

 

Camille Kass:  We are thankful for the progress that Camille has made in her healing from a broken foot and shingles. We pray that she would be able to make a full recovery from both.

 

Betty Kroll:  Please remember Betty in your prayers as she continues in her daily regimen of radiation and weekly treatment of chemotherapy.  We pray that these would prove to be effective in eradicating all her cancer.

 

Todd VandenHeuvel:  Please keep Todd in your prayers as the fracture in his foot has still not healed.  We pray for his recovery so that he might be relieved of pain and restored to work and regular activities.

 

Council Member of Focus:

Elder Vern Boersen

 

 

 

 

AT HOME MEMBERS

Henry & Joyce Tamminga:  Henry lives with their daughter, Paula, in Zeeland.  Joyce lives at Lakeside Vista in Holland.

The Congregation is encouraged to continue with financial support of North Street and the various ministries that we support.  Weekly budget envelopes can be mailed to the church at 20 E. Main Avenue, ZeelandThe Deacons would like to encourage the congregation to continue supporting the causes/ministries that would have been receiving our offerings collected during our Worship Services.  We will provide a link where you can go and enter a donation for them online.  Some causes do not have a webpage.  Please contact your District Deacon with any questions.
