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 June, we saw Christ's love in action as we celebrated Vacation Bible School at Hero Central. Christ's love was lived out too as our food pantry numbers increased to 120 for June given that school breakfast and lunch programs came to a close for the season, so more parents turned to us for assistance. In addition, The Fruitport Area Pastors' Summer Senior Chats series continued with a very good presentation on Hospice Care. And finally, the end of June marked the kickoff for many free concerts that will be held at Worship on the Waterfront, Maranatha, and the CRC Conference Grounds.
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.
