Grace/CRC Church Family: “Rejoice with those who rejoice! Walk beside the weary.” If you are interested in being on a list of those helping to meet needs of our church family, please contact Elaine DeVries at 680-4181 or Laura Noteboom at 201-9171. This may involve anything from meal prep to yard work so all are welcome to be part of a contact list about needs. You may then decide if you can help with that particular need.

Do you have a need? Or know someone in need in our church family? Please contact Elaine DeVries at 680-4181 or Laura Noteboom at 201-9171 with requests for church family support. No need is too great or too small when we all work together to meet it.

Lawn Mowing: Grace Church is looking for someone interested in mowing the church lawn this Summer. Interested or have questions? Contact one of the deacons.

Senior Meal Delivery: We are looking for volunteers who might be interested in delivering Senior Meals from the CTP to some of our local seniors. Contact Pastor Scott for more information.
