Men's Book Club Meets This Saturday (July 12)

This coming Saturday, July 12, the Men's Book Club will begin a new book, Francis Schaeffer's "Trilogy" - a collection of three of his most foundational books bound in one. For our July meeting, we'll begin The God Who is There and read chapters 1-5 (pgs. 1-51).

[Note: If you own The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, the page numbers for volume 1 are basically the same as the Trilogy. Feel free to read and bring either copy for our meetings.]

Come join us for a great time of fellowship and discussion as we learn about the intellectual and cultural climate of this present age and see how the Christian faith challenges the "wisdom of the world" so prevalent around us!

We continue to meet at the home of Bob and Adriana Reeves starting at 6:00pm.

Questions? Contact Rev. Compton - rev.andrew.compton@gmail.com.

6th Annual Benevolence Picnic and Silent Auction! - June 21, 2014

Join us on June 21 at 10:00 a.m. for our 6th Annual Benevolence Picnic and Silent Auction!

The annual Benevolence Picnic was established six years ago, with the vision of bringing together our congregation to enjoy fellowship with one another, and to raise money for our church's benevolence needs.  

Throughout the years, generous sponsors have kindly donated a variety of gifts, services, and goods to our silent auction. The auction, along with fundraising activities such as the purchase of picnic foods, has helped tremendously in funding the church's benevolence program.

Such contributions help Christ Reformed Church to administer financial assistance to those in need of benevolence. This assistance aids with daily necessities, groceries, rent assistance, car repair, utilities, medical expenses, etc. And 100% of the funds raised go directly for benevolence; none of it is reserved for administrative use.

In these difficult economic times, the benevolence fund is critical. We thank you for supporting our efforts to help those in need and hope you will have fun while supporting a great cause!

For more information please visit the picnic website:  Christ Reformed Picnic 2014
