Morning worship: Our Festival Choir and Allegro Ringers lead us in an Easter Hymn Festival of scripture and song. The offering is for World Renew.
Cyclone Idai has destroyed homes and devastated crops, infrastructure, and livelihoods throughout southern Africa. This is one of the deadliest storms to ever strike the region. Idai has caused at least 650 deaths and affected over 2.6 million people. Humanitarian needs are enormous and growing. Families have lost food stocks, and crops have been wiped out. Your gift will provide families with food, blankets, temporary shelters, and seeds to replant crops that were destroyed.
Evening worship: Lisa Meyer will preach from 2 Samuel 12:1-15. The offering is for Wings of Mercy.
Founded by Holland resident Peter Vanden Bosch in 1991, Wings of Mercy provides free air transportation to people with limited means who need treatment at distant medical facilities. Pilots volunteer their services and owners their planes, but they appreciate financial assistance for the purchase of fuel. Terry Boer, who has ties to Calvin Church, serves as the Wings of Mercy board president.
