A favorite children’s song from my childhood days says it best –
I am the church.
You are the church.
We are the church together.
All who follow Jesus, all around the world.
Yes, we’re the church together!
I’ve had the privilege of being part of the Fruitport CRC family since January 2016 – a very short time in comparison to our church’s sixty plus years of ministry. I’m excited by our mutual passion for serving God, showing love to our community as well as supporting each other’s faith walk with Jesus Christ. "Celebrating God's Love and Sharing It with Others happens each and every week year around. Download our 'week at a glance' flier to learn more.
Throughout the month of July, we saw Christ's love in action as our church family came together to support those recovering from surgeries. Christ's love was lived out too as our food pantry numbers increased for July given that school breakfast and lunch programs came to a close for the season. We were grateful to receive a generous supply of items from Cottonwood CRC, in Jenison, Michigan. And the full summer season has meant lots of great concerts at Worship on the Waterfront, Maranatha, and the CRC Conference Grounds.
So what does August have in store? Six churches worshipping together outside at Pamona Park, a food truck will be here on August 15 sponsored by Hope Reformed in Grand Haven. August also means Unity Fest is just around the corner -- literally celebrated by thousands of concert goers with volunteers from all our area churches making it possible.
I invite you to explore our site. Consider if The Holy Spirit brought you here too for such a time as this - Whether you are exploring faith for the first time or a long-time believer, you’ll find belonging, friendships, and the opportunity to share your gifts and grow closer to Jesus. Questions about our church? Faith questions? In need of a visit for an illness or a listening ear? Please feel free to send me an email and we'll connect soon.
