This Sunday's Service: "God's Good Pleasure"
In Sunday's Gospel reading, Jesus says, "It is God's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom." Jesus spoke often of the "Kingdom of Heaven." He said we've been given the keys to this Kingdom. So, what exactly is the Kingdom, and how does one find it?
Come join us this Sunday at 10 AM (either in-person or streaming live online) as we explore "The Keys to the Kingdom" together. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black & Jeff Spangler

Last Sunday's Service
In last Sunday's Gospel story, Jesus tells the "Parable of the Rich Fool." Is money really the root of all evil? Are material possessions really a stumbling block on the spiritual path? It is really that difficult for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
Please enjoy last Sunday's service, when we explored together what a prosperous and abundant life really looks like, and how we can manifest it now. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler

In Memoriam: Sarah Scott
It is with great sadness that we share the news that longstanding church member, Sarah Scott, passed away last week. Pastor Sal was able to visit and pray with Sarah on the day before she passed, and he anointed her with holy water. Her transition was a peaceful one. A private service for immediate family will be held at the church later this month. Cards of condolence can be sent to Sarah's niece, JoLee Hanson, at 2819 Crescent Street, Fennville, MI 49408
Last week, all new roofing was installed on our church, Friendship Hall, Retreat House, and garage. Sharp Roofing and Construction did a great job. We are grateful to our Church Council Trustee, Kelly Wright, for overseeing this huge project.
Kudos, Stacy & Dick!
Thank you to church members, Stacy Honson and Dick Bont, for refinishing and staining the benches in our church's Meditation & Memorial Garden. We are grateful for their service.
