The Fellowship Team would like to invite you to join us next Sunday morning, December 5th for our Christmas Breakfast.  Make plans to enjoy some wonderful food and fellowship with friends & family on this morning.  We will be serving breakfast from 8:30 – 9:45 AM. 

We look forward to our children participating in worship on December 12th as we celebrate Christmas together as a church family.  Children will need to arrive on the morning of the 12th at 8:45 AM and may wear regular Christmas outfits.  Please contact Courtney Kingshott at 616-485-2739 with any questions.

You are invited to our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on as we celebrate Jesus’ birth.    This worship service is for the entire family.  All ages are welcome and encouraged to participate.  NO nursery available. 

FYI Snowbirds!  If you are heading to warmer climates soon and you would like to stay in the loop here at Calvin (nominations, budget, etc.), let Vickie in the office know and she will add you to the email list to keep you informed over the winter. 

With the colder weather upon us, we would like to remind everyone that all Calvin Ministries cancellations will be posted to FOX 17,, WZZM TV,, WOOD TV, and also on Facebook.

The Thursday afternoon Bible Study of Matthew’s Gospel will meet this Thursday at 1:00 PM.  It is held in the Fireside Room on the first and third Thursdays of each month.  It will be streamed live on Facebook and will be available afterwards for those who are unable to attend or watch the live stream. 

Please remember to wear your nametag.  If you are in need of one, please let Vickie in the office know.  Please specify if you would like a magnetic one or a lanyard one.
