CRC OFFERING: Today—DCS; Next Week—DCS. Please mail offerings to either of the churches.

BULLETIN DELIVERY: Due to the lockdowns at both the nursing home and Leisure Living, bulletins will be sent by email to the facilities and distributed to our members.

The Easter Cantata has been cancelled. Choir, please keep your books and CD’s and we will reassess our schedule and possible performances after the pandemic crisis is ended.

MONDAY: 7 PM Women’s Bible Study at home via Zoom, Lesson 21.

SUN., APRIL 5: Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, so we look at the interesting contrast with what Jesus did with the children and the chief priests as recorded for us in Mark 11. Pray the Holy Spirit will keep us spiritually strong as we hear the messages from a distance instead of being together in church.

 

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE

  • Chad Wentland is undergoing treatments for cancer; please pray for strength through the treatments and that they would be effective.

  • Marla (Ann Scholten’s daughter) and others battling cancer, undergoing treatments, other physical problems, shut-ins, residents of area care facilities.

  • Pray especially for our church family members confined to their homes, whether it be a care facility or their own home, due to vulnerability to the coronavirus.

  • Covid19, the Coronavirus, is threatening how we live. Pray that God uses this pandemic during Lent to bring many people to faith in Jesus Christ.

  • Pray that the COVID19, Coronavirus, diminishes enough to have our special worship services in church on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Easter, Resurrection Sunday. Ask God to protect us all from the virus. Give thanks that all in the congregation have been healthy so far this year.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jaden Barse (March 31), Rod Bormann (April 1), Levi Van Zee (April 4). Wishing each of you a great day!

WE CARE FUND: Corsica CRC has a “We Care Fund”, formerly known as “Benevolent Fund”, whose purpose is to help support individuals and families with financial challenge. The We Care Fund treasurer and council members may not be aware of some of these needs, so we ask that if you or someone you know has a real need, please contact the We Care Fund treasurer or any member of the Council for consideration. The fund is available to any Corsica CRC member, as well as anyone of the greater Corsica com- munity. Concerns brought to a Council member will be shared only within the Council.

 

Requested Announcements

New Hope Women’s Retreat planned for April 24-25 is postponed until September 11-12. Mark your calendars for a weekend celebrating “Beautiful Things” and watch for more details in late summer.

Sunday Morning Memos: Simon and Centurion

What do you know about Simon of Cyrene?

How did the soldiers who compelled Simon to carry Christ’s cross change his life?

How does carrying Christ’s cross as He asks each disciple to do change you?

Describe your mental image of the Roman centurion.

What does this tell us about who can be saved?

What do suppose he told Pilate? 

Take time this afternoon to write about the way God brought you to Jesus.
Perhaps you would like to share this with your children, parents or others.
