This Week at Calvin
Calvin Church observes Advent with the theme of "Be Not Afraid". Sunday, December 14, at 10 am we light the candle of peace. We wait for God's promises of peace on earth and good will to all. We pray that God's peace would break through
our restless hearts and lead us to Bethlehem, where we can celebrate our Savior's birth.
Rev. Nathan Kuperus, pastor from Ireton CRC, will be leading worship. His message "Don't Fear the Dragon" based on Revelation 12. The All For Him band and singers will lead the singing of Prince of Peace (You Are Holy), Angels We Have Heard on High, Meekness and Majesty, Celebrate the Child, and Come Thou Long Expected Jesus. The closing song will be My Soul Cries Out with a Joyful Shout.
This Sunday at 9:00 AM education teachers Tom DeKoster, Sharon Zomermaand and Dave Hector lead interesting classes for all ages.
