    The Council has asked these men to be nominees for the offices of elder and deacon at the annual meeting planned for November 22, 2017.

 Glen Talsma, Marvin Van Dam, Leon Vander Woude and Don Vogel for Elder. Chad Miersma, Ivan Vogel, Harlow Schaap, Roger Talsma 

 and Jason Vander Schaaf for deacon. Thank you to these men
    From the Council This year, the synod of the CRC has discussed ways of helping those in poverty through a sustainable development model. 

 The fight against poverty must address the structures and systems that keep people poor.  In the past as a church we have participated in

 the Operation Christmas Child shoe box program. While this is a good ministry, we as a church would like to change to a different program

 of ministry.  As a church, during this Advent season we will be participating in a giving tree program with World Renew's Gift Catalogue.
