  Next Sunday’s Scripture will be James 2:14-26.

Calvin Church invites you to the Ordination and Installation Service for Brian R. Kingshott at Calvin CRC on June 5, 2022, at 3:30 PM.   As we celebrate this occasion, we would love to give Brian a Bible filled with highlighted meaningful Scripture.  Please take a moment to highlight your favorite Scripture(s).  The Bible will be in the narthex over the next couple of weeks.

 

Student Ministries this Week… 

 

Activity Tote Bags are available for kids during the worship service and are located in the narthex.  Feel free to grab one as you head into worship.  Please return the totes after the service.

If you would like more information on a ministry and/or have a prayer concern, please take a moment to fill out a Connection Card and place it in the offering plate.  

Mom’s Bible Study:  Moms, join us at 8:45 AM in the Family Life Center (gym) on Wednesday mornings.  Children are welcome to play as we dig into God’s word together.  See Sue Milkamp or Courtney Kingshott for more details. 

The Thursday afternoon Bible Study of Matthew’s Gospel will meet this Thursday at 1:00 PM in the Fireside Room.  It will be streamed live on Facebook and will be available afterwards for those who are unable to attend or watch the live stream.  The final Bible study of the year will be Thursday, June 2nd.  

As graduation time approaches, if you will need to borrow tables and chairs, please contact the church office 231-737-5207 to reserve.  

Have you taken time to experience our Prayer Trail?  For years our church has not utilized our beautiful woods.  This wonderful trail was created for our neighbors, community, and church family to share in God’s amazing creation.  Please enjoy! 

Our sanctuary is equipped with an Induction Loop Assistive Listening System.  To utilize, please switch your hearing aid, cochlear implant or tactile device to “T” (Telephone) or you may need to contact your provider for assistance. 

Another way to give at Calvin is through VENMO.  Go to our website, calvin-crc.org, click on the GIVE tab and follow the steps.  Or go to your Venmo app, search for the Profile Name, Calvin-Muskegon and follow the steps.

Baby Bottle Blessing filled bottles should be returned to church by next Sunday, May 22nd.  Please continue to pray for the babies and women who will be impacted by your gift.  Thank you! 

Are you willing to share a story with our young ones?  Children’s Messages are a part of worship on Family Worship Sundays.  Sign up on the bulletin board by the drinking fountain.  Family Worship Sundays (No Children in Worship) are Communion Sundays/Holidays/ Summer.
