The greeting and nursery schedules have been modified. One

refreshments during these months. The nursery schedule will be a
blend of the Grace and CRC schedules. If you are scheduled for

Woman's Bible study will begin on
Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 7:00 p.m. We will study I & II
Thessalonians by Beth Moore. This is a 9-week study called
Children of the Day. The study is based on I Thessalonians 5:5
"You are all children of the light and children of the day. We
do not belong to the light or to the darkness." This study shows
us how to live in the light—to light up a room because we are
believers who carry the Holy Spirit in our hearts and are never
without God's Light. Contact Jackie Niewenhuis if you would like
a book and to attend this study. All women are welcome.
