The Mothers of the Messiah
The season of Advent is upon us, and we look forward to the celebrating the Incarnation of Jesus. Throughout the month, our worship committee has planned a focus of the Mothers in line to the Messiah, and we have planned services that will look briefly at each one.
The first week, Dec. 3., we look at Tamar, Judah's daughter-in-law. We also welcome Dan Tigchelaar to our pulpit that morning,
On Dec. 10, we will look at Ruth, and her loyalty to Naomi, her mother-in-law. We also look forward to hearing Eric Groot-Nibbelink as he leads our worship service. We also have our youngest musicians opening our worship service, and we praise God for their gifts as well.
December 17th we will look at Bathsheba, the wife David stole from Uriah. Despite our sins, God uses us in mighty ways. We are also excited to have John Span, our missionary, come join us. That evening we plan on having our annual Candlelight Service, where we will join our Youth Group in celebrating our Lord's birth!
December 24th, Christmas Eve, we will look at Mary, the mother of our Lord, the one chosen by God to carry our Saviour into this world. We will be joined by George Lubbers that final morning before Christmas.
On Christmas morning, we invite all to come to a special morning service, where we will be led by Richard Poortinga in praise and celebration of our salvation, the day God sent His Only Son to come to earth for us. He came to save us from our sins. Glory to God in the Highest!

Our Deacons will be having our next Sunday soup and bun event on Nov.26th, D.V. This time we will start with Soup and Buns at 5:30p.m. followed by watching the film Poverty Inc. This film discusses who profits from poverty. Of the film, the promotion states:
"I see multiple colonial governors," says Ghanaian software entrepreneur Herman Chinery-Hesse of the international development establishment in Africa. “We are held captive by the donor community.”
The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better.
Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change.
Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore.
From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
The deacons watched the first half at and recent meeting and felt it is important to share it with the congregation and others. All members of the community welcome to attend as well. More details to follow.
