Today’s Worship Services
Pastor Matthew will bring the message today.
You are asked to observe precautions with masks as you feel comfortable, hand sanitizer and
distancing out of respect for everyone’s safety and health.
Large-print bulletins and morning song sheets are located on the coat rack on the east side of the
sanctuary entrance. Wireless amplifiers for the hearing impaired are available from a greeter.
Children’s Ministries are suspended until further notice.
To Our Guests
If you are a guest today, we extend a very warm welcome to you. Our prayer is that you will feel
the presence of the Holy Spirit in this place and among God’s people gathered here. Please join
us again soon!
TODAY AT WEST LEONARD CHURCH
This morning Pastor Matthew continues a series of messages on Psalm 119: “The Many Blessings of God’s Word.” Throughout this series we will see Psalm 119 as a handbook of what God’s Word can do – in one-sentence statements - and especially see how the Word becomes the foundation of how we pray.
Offerings can be placed in the plates as you leave the sanctuary. Offerings today not designated for another cause will be marked for our church’s General Fund.
Thank you to those people helping today:
Prayer Team: John & Betty Bouwman.
Sound Technician: David Vander Velde.
Evening services have been suspended until September.
July 19, 2020 – Pastor Matthew Pearce will bring the message at morning worship.
Offerings not otherwise designated will be for the Christian Education Fund.
Prayer Team: Ken Roedema, Marv DeBoer.
Sound Technician: Rich Vander Meer.
OUR CHURCH FAMILY
Jo Warners’ bypass surgery has been tentatively scheduled for August 7. However, Jo has several other health issues that need to be addressed before she is cleared for this procedure. Jo would appreciate our prayers for peace and patience for her and also for Wayne, as she navigates through this preoperative testing.
PRAYER FOR OUR LEADERSHIP
Within the next several weeks, our church leadership anticipates making informed and prayerful decisions about when and in what capacity some of our ministries will resume as they consider ongoing health and safety concerns. Please pray for the Spirit’s guidance.
An updated church directory is in the works. If your information has changed, please send that along to the church office - – before Monday, July 20.
Although our church newsletter routinely takes a break in the summer months, we would like to publish an edition of The Vine in July. Specifically we would like to hear stories of your experiences of God’s grace during the time of quarantine that perhaps you were unable to share during our recent video Glimpses of Grace. Or maybe you have a humorous story to tell J. Your submission should be in the church office no later than this Tuesday morning, July 14, for publication on Sunday, July 19.
FROM THE PROPERTIES COMMITTEE
The AC unit for our church sanctuary has had some serious malfunctions in the past week or two. Your patience is appreciated as these problems are being addressed as timely and as efficiently as possible.
