    ITEMS OF PRAYER AND PRAISE 

    Continue to keep Amy Vogel in your prayers as she is recovering from back surgery at home.
    We remember all of our members who reside at area care facilities. Chris Sankey and Dick Talsma who reside at Edgebrook’s Assisted 

 Living, Gert Krosschell who resides at Edgebrook Apartments and Geneva Peters who resides at the Pipestone Good Samaritan Care Facility.

   ANNOUNCEMENTS:   
   Today: There will be a pulpit exchange with Rev. Joe Vanden Akker from Leota for the evening service.

   Memory Verses: For our evening services, we are reading one Lord's Day of the Heidelberg Catechism each week.  In our bulletin each 

 week, we will list a memory verse that corresponds to one of those questions and answers.  We encourage you to memorize these passages

 with your family for that week.  In Pastor John Piper's article "Why Memorize Scripture?" (placed in your mailboxes), he gives several reasons 

 why memorizing Scripture is so essential to the Christian life: conformity to Christ, daily triumph over sin, daily triumph over Satan, comfort

 and counsel for people you love, communicating the gospel to unbelievers, and communion with God in the enjoyment of his person and ways. 

 Will you join us in this challenge for 2018? 
    The  Chandler  Youth  Group  is  having  a  Soup  Supper  on  February  28  from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at the Chandler Reformed Church.  We  

 will be  serving  Chili, Chicken Noodle Soup, Split Pea Soup and Cheesy Vegetable Soup, along with delicious desserts to finish off your meal. 

     From Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL):  Most women receive an ultrasound prior to an abortion.  However, 

 abortion facilities in Minnesota rarely permit women to view their ultrasounds.  Legislation supported by MCCL will allow pregnant women to 

 view their ultrasounds at abortion facilities or wherever the procedure is performed.  A petition for this issue is available at the kitchen window 

 if you would like to participate. The deadline for participating will be next Sunday, February 25.

 breakfast luncheon featuring Pastor Brian Kornelis in the fellowship hall of First Christian Reformed Church in Edgerton. Pastor Brian will give 

 us a presentation detailing the four authors of the gospels and how their messages are different and yet the same. All women are invited! Story
