This Sunday, Oct. 22: The Combined Evening Service will be in the Reformed Church at 6:30 p.m.
held at First CRC in Edgerton, MN. This service will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and how the truths of the reformation
still resonate for us today. Please join us in praising God for his great faithfulness to his church. During this service we will be nourished by
God’s Word and the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. A time of fellowship and refreshments will follow. Through our time together, Jesus’
Church will be built up and readied to follow as disciples of his. We look forward to worshiping with you! There will be no 6:30 pm service
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
ministry. As a church, during this Advent season we will be
participating in a giving tree program with World Renew's Gift
Oct. 25, which is Wednesday evening and then early morning Oct. 29 before the service.
We have received word recently that the Chandler Reformed Church has made the decision to discontinue the joint evening service in

the planning and volunteers for our worship services in your prayers.
