Walker United Reformed Church

The Lord’s Day – November 29, 2015

First Sunday of Advent

Welcome to Walker United Reformed Church. “He must become greater; I must become less” John 3:30. Our morning worship service today will be led by Rev. Corey Dykstra. The sermon this morning is entitled “From Child Killer to Saint”. There will be two offerings in the morning worship today. The first offering will be for “Walker Ministries” and the second will be for the “Walker Christian Education Fund”.

Our evening worship will be led by seminarian Joel Weaver. Joel & Heidi Weaver and their children (Evelyn, Simeon and Katharine) are with us this evening for worship. Joel is currently in his fourth year at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and the Lord willing, he plans to graduate in May and seek ordination into gospel ministry. Prior to seminary, Joel served in full time youth ministry in California and New Jersey for ten years, and currently remains an active part of the board of Reformed Mission Services. Heidi is a full time wife and mother and home schools the children. The Weavers live in Grandville and are members of Cornerstone URC.

Our sermon this evening is entitledWhen Christians Live Together in Unity”. The evening offering will be for the “Christian Rest Home”. The Christian Rest Home seeks to extend the ministry of our loving Savior Jesus Christ to older adults in recognition of our obligation and privilege to render mercy and help to the afflicted. “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.” Luke 6: 36

NEXT WEEK AT WALKER – December 6, 2015

Next Sunday is the Second Sunday of Advent. Our worship services will be led by Rev. Corey Dykstra. The morning offering will be for “Walker Ministries”. The evening offering will be for “I.T.E.M.”. International Theological Education Ministries (ITEM's) purpose and philosophy of ministry spring from the belief that the most effective evangelism, discipleship and church planting occur not by exporting American institutions and methods but by equipping national believers with the biblical tools to do the work of ministry in their own cultural context. ITEM believes this to be a biblical model for missions and a particularly strategic model. ITEM further affirms the importance the Bible places on the works in a support role with national churches in the establishment and operation of programs to provide pastoral training. By sending professors, financial resources and resource/reference materials, ITEM can train many pastors whose ministry and influence will far exceed that of transplanted Westerners.
