This Week at Calvin 3/27/2024

News from CCRC – Calvin Christian Reformed Church “A Caring Church, Reaching Community”!
Our church building is located at 326 7 th St SE. We invite all to come and observe Good Friday with us.
The service is structured like a funeral to help us feel the reality of Jesus’ death. Through Scripture,
readings, and songs, we reflect on the scope of Jesus’ life on earth, from the promise of his coming
through his ministry to his death. Inez Hoogeveen will accompany the traditional hymns. At the
conclusion of the service the Christ Candle will be extinguished signifying his death for our sins.
Beginning at 9:00 AM Easter morning, all are invited to the Fellowship Hall for an Easter breakfast
serving egg bake, muffins, coffee cake, juice, and coffee.
Worship begins at 10:00 in the sanctuary with a prelude “Risen Today! by Miriam Hector on the organ.
The sanctuary will be decorated with white lilies and the white drape on the cross. “Christ the Lord is
Risen Today” will open the service along with the relighting of the Christ Candle signifying Christ’s
resurrection from the dead. With Patrick Visscher on trumpet and Hector on organ we will celebrate
Christ’s resurrection with the singing of “Christ the Lord is Risen Today,” “This is the Day”, “Low in the
Grave He Lay”, “He is Lord”, and leave the service with “Crown Him with Many Crowns.
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 Kaitlyn Visser.
Pastor Brian will use John 20: 1 – 18 as his text for the “Empty Tomb” message.
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.
