This Sunday, January 8: This morning, we will install our new elders and deacons. We thank the Lord for the gifts of elders and deacons to
lead, serve and equip God’s people for works of service in Christ’s kingdom. A huge thank you to Elders Bruce Kreun and
Curt Miersma. Because of your service and leadership, we have been blessed and challenged to keep serving the Lord and fighting the good
fight of faith. We also want to give many thanks to Deacon Kent Schaap. Because of your faithful service we are better stewards of what the
Lord has blessed us with. We offer our prayers, encouragement and readiness to the new elders Glen Schoolmeester and Dave Holm. We
also pray for and support our new deacon, Clyde Kreun. May God richly bless all the prayers, work and service of the family of God in 2017!
