Our Church Family


The Corsica Community Youth Group is on their week-long Serve project in Holland, Michigan. The theme is “Love God, Love the World.” Please pray for safety for the team as they travel, growth as they learn about and then share God’s love with the community of Holland, and unity in the team. Those going are: leaders—Grant & Vicki Lubbers, Pastor Dan & Christie DeGraff and Kevin (Shorty) Ries; youth—Jaden Barse, Raven Barse, Bryce Bordewyk, Trevor Burke, Ray Cordrey, Cooper DeLange, Morgan DeLange, Bradyn Denning, Dalton Feenstra, Haley Johnson, Heather Johnson, Caleb Krogstad, Carly Lagge, Courtney Menning, Cami Plooster, Taryn Rexwinkel, Slayton Vander Wal, Corbin Van Zee, Kassidy Watters, Brendan Wentland, Paige Wright, and Gavin Zomer. Thank you to those who are partnering in prayer with the team. Information to guide your praying is available in your mailboxes. Anyone else who would like this information, please see Kim Zomer.

Aaron & Hur Prayer Team: As long as Aaron & Hur held Moses’ arms up, the Israelites were winning in battle. We can be that kind of support through prayer. Join in a short time of prayer next Sunday morning from 9:35-9:50 a.m. in the Grace library (bottom of the east steps) as we pray specifically for our pastor and the worship time to come.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Cindy Bosma (June 24), Trent Vanden Hoek (June 25), Emily Zomer (June 26), Wade Sonnenberg (June 27), Don Bosma (June 28); HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Cal & Kim Zomer (June 24), Rod & Marcia Bormann, Bruce & Kathy Zomer (June 25), and Amanda & Patrick Draisey (June 27).
