Dedication Sunday!

It was an exciting Sunday, December 18th,  our first service in the new building!  In a big circle around the auditorium, we dedicated each space for it’s special purpose. The children gave us the Christmas message in some fun songs.  We celebrated communion together, and lit the fourth Advent Candle. We sang and prayed and worshipped God for his great faithfulness to us.  The service ended in colour and confetti as we sang our theme song for the building project – Build Your Kingdom Here!  Then we all gathered in the fellowship room, where we enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner.  Special recognition was also given to the Building Committee members – Sarah Haanstra, Peter Teeninga, Brenda Kranenburg, Murray Ritsema and Doug Kuyvenhoven, who have given many hours of service to this project.  We are surely thankful for their contributions.  It was a great time, as the children checked out their new rooms, and people wandered around, taking it all in.  There is excitement and anticipation, as we think about the future, and how God will use us and this building to bring his Story to this community!17 9 12 14 4 2 1-2
