Most Recent Lord's Day

July 2, 2023

“For the word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”

Psalm 33:4-5



Welcome to all who worship here today. May God bless us as we hear the gospel in preaching and as we sing His praises, lift our prayers to Him and present our offerings of thanks. 



Hymns are sung from the Trinity Psalter Hymnal

We also sing from "Songs for Worship", a church songbook made up of consistory-approved songs not available in the Hymnal (links available).

United in Prayer: Up-to-date Requests from our Missionaries

Pastor Rich Bultje is a church-planter in Niagara Falls, ON.
1. Pray for those who have been worshiping with us for some time; that they would mature in their faith to be able to make a public profession of their faith and join the church.
2. Pray also that men from our membership would be able to take on leadership roles in the church plant and/or mature men from neighboring congregations would be willing to join us as a church pant to take on leadership positions.


Word & Deed - Prayer Update - Malawi
After Cyclone Freddy’s destructive path through southern Malawi in March, Word & Deed's partner, Logos Ministries was able to mobilize relief efforts to assist over 3,500 families impacted by the flooding. Local churches responded by taking in refugees and Word & Deed's assistance provided maize, blankets, cooking utensils, buckets, and seeds. Each distribution included a day of teaching on the gospel and biblical stewardship. Please continue to pray for the people in southern Malawi as the loss of crops will continue to impact their food supply for months to come, and pray that God’s Word sewn through many years of biblical training will bear much fruit.


The Institute for Reformed Biblical Counseling (IRBC) is a ministry of Cornerstone URC which has a passion to train Christians to evangelize the lost and practically apply God’s truth to people’s problems in a holistic manner via the venue of biblical counseling. IRBC also assists in establishing biblical
counseling center s across the United States of America. Please pray that the Lord will allow more counseling class venues to be established and that students will register in California, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, South Dakota, Washington, and the Philippines where venues have been established.
