Have you taken time to experience our Prayer Trail lately?  The SERVE Teams laid fresh wood chips down all along the trail.  This wonderful trail was created for our neighbors, community, and church family to share in God’s amazing creation.  Please enjoy! 

There are many excellent books to borrow in our Church Library which you may like to take home and enjoy.  These books can be found in the Fireside Room. 

Calvin on Facebook…Check it out!  We have a Facebook page and a Facebook group.  Our page is public (Calvin Church – Muskegon), and our group is private (Calvin CRC – Muskegon).  Please feel free to invite your family and friends to our public page (look for the tree), where we will be sharing events going on in the life of our church and community, etc.  Our private page is for our “church” family.  Here, we will be sharing prayer concerns/praises, events, etc.  If you have any questions, please feel free to see Vickie in the office.

Opportunities to Serve 

Family Promise week is August 14th - 21st.  We only need to provide meals and deliver them to the Family Promise Day Center.  Please consider making a family friendly meal for families who are experiencing homelessness.  Sign-up sheets are in the narthex.  Thank you! 

We are in need of more Nursery Volunteers…  Are you interested in spending some time with our littlest members for an hour on a Sunday morning?   We could really use your help!  If you’re interested, please see Meredith Best or Courtney Kingshott.
