What will be your legacy? Many Christians
want to make a lasting statement about the importance of God’s

attorney from Barnabas Foundation, will help you develop the
best possible plan to meet your family’s financial and
charitable goals. Jim will be meeting with Christian families in
our area August 29 & 30. Call Ann Zacek at Barnabas Foundation

complimentary conversation with Jim. To help you get

Chamberlain/Oacoma CRC Church Plant: What
will God do next in our region? Many people in Classis Iakota
have been praying for distinctively Reformed new churches. The
Holy Spirit’s response seems to look seriously at these
communities to establish a new CRC. Before moving further than
continued prayer and preliminary observations we desire an
informal listening event over coffee with the people of Corsica,
Harrison, Menno, New Holland, and Platte. Mr. Rick Droog, local
representative of CRC Resonate Global Mission, and Pastor Jack
Gray, convener of the Classis Iakota Church Plant Committee,
want to hear what you think and feel about such a church plant
effort. Please come to the New Holland Fellowship Hall on
Tuesday evening, August 28 at 7:30 p.m. to share how the Holy
Spirit is speaking to you. If you have questions or wish to know
more call 605-271-0794 or e-mail email@example.com.
Church Bi-National Conference: The Office of
Safe Church Ministry is inviting each Christian Reformed Church
to send members of their safe church committees or teams to be
equipped at the conference called #Equipped in our #MeToo
world on September 21-22, 2018 in Grand Rapids, MI. As the
#MeToo movement continues to affect each of our congregations,
churches have unique resources that can’t be found anywhere
else. It’s time to be equipped to take our place in this
movement. Imagine with us... churches offering safe spaces,
where those who have suffered abuse share their stories, find
understanding and support, and experience the powerful healing
love of our Lord together with his people; and where each of us
are equipped to prevent abuse from happening in our churches,
communities or homes. Please feel free to contact Safe Church
Ministry with any questions and register online at
www.safechurchequipping.com. We are also excited to share
that it’s free for CRC members! In addition, there are
scholarships are available to assist in costs for travel.
