NORTH KENT PASTORS SQUARE OFF On Thursday, October 26th, our very own REVEREND KAREN will be one of the featured contestants in this Hollywood Squares inspired event at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. This is the 2017 FUNdraiser for North Kent Connect (aka North Kent Community Services). Reservations for tables of 10 are now being accepted. The earlier we reserve, the closer we can be to the center of the action. Come join the fun and root for our very own “square” in the game.
HERE FISHY, FISHY! The NKPC Fishing Contest is on! Will you catch the biggest fish in 2017? Check out the poster in the fellowship hall for rules and details! Everyone is invited to participate.
Waterers and weeders needed! You are invited to come water and weed our new plants, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. They could use a drink on a daily when it is over 80 degrees. The flowers and the Youth Crew Garden thank you!
Reverse Offering Items Due: If you took a slip to purchase particular items for Safe Haven Ministries, please bring these items to the church by August 28.
True North Campus ministry is a Presbytery of Lake Michigan ministry for students in Grand Rapids at Grand Rapids Community College, Kendall College of Art and Design and Grand Valley State University’s Pew Campus. Our school year begins August 28 and we could use some volunteers! Please contact Nancy Janisch firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-821-0351 for more information.
One of our most important programs is the Listening Post at GRCC. Every Tuesday trained volunteers from local congregations are present on campus to listen to students. Last year we listened to 186 students! You do not need to be present every week to participate, each volunteer decides when they will volunteer.
