It’s ZOO DAYS at DISCOVERY KIDZ! This week:  It’s all about

 the Zookeeper.  God is our creator and caretaker.  The Shepherd who loves his people so much he would die for them.

Memory Verse this week: 

“I am the good shepherd. 

The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”  

 John 10:11


OUR SPECIAL MUSIC is presented by Hermina Feikema. We thank

 you for being with us today and sharing your testimony in song!


THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of August is designated for

 WORDS OF HOPE.  Words of Hope proclaims Jesus Christ

 through broadcasting in the languages of the world's peoples. 

 Along with other partners in ministry they build the church by

 winning the uncommitted to faith in Christ and by encouraging

 Christians in the life of discipleship.  Also, we get the daily

 devotionals from Words of Hope free of charge! This special

 offering will be received today.


A PRAYER GROUP will meet following the service in the sanctuary

 to pray for Pastor George & Connections, and the needs and vision at

 Grace Reformed Church.
