ELDERS INVITATION – If you have questions, concerns, joys, or
prayer needs that you would like to share, please see the Pastor or
an Elder today. Elders will be greeting at the doors as you leave the
sanctuary this morning and they are also listed on the back of your
bulletin. You may also make a notation on the Fellowship Register.
We joyously welcome you to Grace Reformed Church!
Whatever led you to our church today, we believe God rejoices in having
you in this place. Please take a moment and sign your name and
address on the Fellowship Register as it is passed today.
TODAY AT GRACE
TODAY WE CELEBRATE THE SACRAMENT OF THE LORD’S
SUPPER. We invite all those who are members of Christ’s Church
and have found forgiveness of sins in Him, to participate in the
supper. A brief Communion Service will be held in the
Chapel following the service for anyone who was not able
to be present during the worship service. If you are aware of
someone who is not here today, but would like to receive this
sacrament, please contact the church office.
It’s ZOO DAYS at DISCOVERY KIDZ! The kids will begin their
summer session today! This week: It’s the Monkeys. Monkeys are
one of the most popular animals at the zoo, because they are so
curious. They're always exploring climbing, trying new things. We as
Christians should have the same passion to study God's Word and try
new things He has called us to do. When we do that, we too can
expect people to gather to see what makes our life so exciting.
Memory Verse this week: “You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
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.
SUNDAYS AT 6:00 - We will not be meeting for the evening service
for the remainder of July and the month of August, but will worship
together at Faith Reformed Church, 618 32nd Street at 6:00pm.
We will have a joint service on September 6 with Unity Reformed,
and then our schedule will resume with evening services at Grace on
PRAYERS & PRAISE
HEALTH CONCERNS – Please be in prayer for Karen Ver Hulst who
