This Week at Calvin
Calvin Christian Reformed Church welcomes all who are looking for a church home to visit and make yourself at home. We've been praying for you, and hope you will experience the joy of God's life changing love. Calvin is located at 326 7th St SE, Le Mars. 10:15 AM on Sundays is the time that has been set aside for the public worship of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
Our Pastor Rev. Dr. Nevada DeLapp is on vacation the next two weeks, so we will have some familiar friends of Calvin filling the pulpit. This week on Feb 2nd Rev. Troy Van Beek, a Calvin son, will preach The Word. Feb. 9th, Rev. Norlyn Van Beek, a former student pastor at our church returns. We are thankful for what God has done in both of their lives and love having them return to Calvin
Rev. Troy Van Beek will use the text of Matthew 7: 21 - 28 to preach the message "Hearers and Doers". The theme is about being able to follow through with what we hear Jesus teaching I the Sermon on the Mount. Miriam Hector will lead all into a spirit of worship with a prelude on the grand piano. The hymns for this Sunday are: "How Great Thou Art" (with Miriam on the organ and Patrick Visscher on trumpet), "In Christ Alone"and 'Ten Thousand Reasons". The All For Him praise band will sing "Living Hope" for the offertory. Following the message, the song of response will be "Lead Me, Guide Me". We will be sent out with the benediction and singing of the chorus "O God, You Are My God."

Mark your calendars for the Annual Praise Band Fest to be held at Calvin on February 16th at 5:00 PM. Three bands will be leading with 20 minutes each of their favorite contemporary Christian songs.
