This pastor should also be a team player who can work meaningfully with fellow pastors and staff members in providing active pastoral care for members of the congregation and in being involved in ministries to the Neland neighborhood in the heart of Grand Rapids.  A Church Profile is available at the Christian Reformed Pastor-Church Relations Office.  Interested persons should contact Search Committee Chairperson Scott Hoezee: seh6@calvinseminary.edu

Sunday at Neland – May 31, 2015

10 AM – On this Missions Sunday, we join Christians from around the world in giving praise to our Maker, Savior, and Spirit. We give thanks to God for all the ways that he uses us to bring his kingdom in this world, and especially for the work of our missionaries. Riley Sanford will update us on his work, and we will commission and bless TNG (The Next Generation) for their service trip to Mississippi.

As Christians living in a world that can sometimes feel unsafe, we can be tempted to live our lives in a posture of fear. However, when we make decisions based on what feels safest, we miss out on the full life to which Jesus calls us. By God's Spirit, we are able overcome fear and live our lives in bold pursuit of God's Kingdom. Rev. Geoff Van Dragt will be preaching from 2 Timothy 1.

5 PM – Join us this evening for worship in the Activity Center as we continue our focus on missions. Geoff Van Dragt will give a meditation on Hebrews 10, “A Different Orthodoxy.” He will also share testimony about his and Ashley’s work at the University of Seattle, with time for questions. We will conclude our worship by celebrating communion together. Our offering will be for Rehoboth Christian School.
