JILL BENNETT – We are saddened at the passing away of Jill Bennett on Saturday night after her 18 month battle with Transverse Myelitus. Please keep the family in your prayers. The Visitation for Jill will be held on Friday, January 5 at 1:00PM at the Sytsema Funeral Chapel on Harvey Street. This will be followed by the Memorial Service at 2:00PM.
WINTER – If you haven’t noticed, we are getting a good old Muskegon winter. Cold temperatures and several inches of snow each day. Lots of fun! With this in mind, if we need to cancel our Sunday service we will send an email out to everyone, post it on Facebook, and contact WZZM. As a general rule, Pastor Matt lived in Minnesota too long to cancel at the first sign of snow. So, remember to use common sense if you are not confident driving in this weather.
FAMILY GAME NIGHT – January 19, 6:30PM, It is always a good time to play games together! We will have plenty of games at church but you can bring your own too! Bring a snack to share too!
