This Week at Calvin 3/13/2024

News from CCRC – Calvin Christian Reformed Church “A Caring Church, Reaching Community”!
Our church building is located at 326 7th St SE. We invite all to come and observe Lent with us. On each
of the Lenten Sundays, we snuff out one purple candle of the Lenten Triad culminating with the white
Christ candle on Good Friday coinciding with the singing of a verse from “Throughout these Lenten Days
and Nights.”
Sunday School classes for all ages begin at 9:00 AM. The Adult Class led by Troy Hughes is using the
DVD by Ray Vander Laan as he travels through the Holy Land giving insight to the meaning of Biblical
terms. Sharon Zomermaand lovingly teaches a beautiful lesson each week to our children. Pastor Brian
goes through the Heidelburg Catechism with the young people. Thank you all for your time and effort in
preparing these wonderful lessons.
Worship begins at 10:00. A prelude by Miriam Hector leads us all into a spirit of worship. Pastor Brian
Hofman’s text is from John 18: 12b – 27.
The Children are welcomed up front to visit with Pastor Brian for an introduction to the morning’s text.
They will then be dismissed to Children’s Worship led by Tessa Hofman.
Special Offering for March is designated for Hope Haven.
A Good Friday service and a celebrative Easter breakfast and worship service, where the Christ candle is
relit, are being planned.
This Wednesday we lead the worship services at Pride Home, Brentwood, and Park Place Estates.
The church office is open Monday through Friday from 10 – noon. If you have concerns for the prayer
chain, please contact the church secretary at 712-546-4767
As the song goes: “I am the church, you are the church, we are the church together! All who follow
Jesus, all around the world, yes, we’re the church together.” Join us
