Sent Ones - Sharifa

They called her “Sharifa,” meaning “the noble one” in Arabic. That title was given to a daughter of this congregation, Cornelia Dalenberg, who took her nursing training to the Arabian Ministries for the Reformed Church in America. She served the RCA and represented this congregation faithfully and famously for many years, yet her highest praise came from the women and children, and their families in Iraq, Bahrain and Oman. She was a medical missionary. She sat right here. Listened to sermons by Pastor Adrian Zwemer. Was cousins with the Paarlberg clan. Grew up right here in little old South Holland, IL. And from her humble beginnings, she responded faithfully to a call of mission. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we learn from Cornelia and from Jonah who both were sent to difficult places.

Sent Ones - No Excuses

What if I told you the heavenly reality is that each of us has been sent? We all are apostles. Sent to work, sent to neighbors, sent to the waitress pouring our coffee, sent to the friend at the gym, sent even to the family member. If we claim Jesus as Lord and Savior, then we have been called to be sent, to be apostles, sent ones. Sent to share and sent to literally be the Good News of Jesus Christ to those around us. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we make no excuses for this convicting claim on our lives.

The Voice - A Loud Voice

Sometimes the voice of God comes to us as a whisper. Sometimes it comes to us through the words of a friend. Sometimes it comes to us in that internal "gut" feeling. Sometimes it comes to us in His Word. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as the voice of God comes to us in a LOUD voice we can't miss!

The Voice - A Call To Change

What do the Ethiopian Eunich, the guard who jailed Paul and Silas, Cornelius, Pastor Corey and Saul all have in common? Powerful conversion stories. Each of these individuals had a powerful encounter with the Good News of Jesus Christ and as a result their lives are never the same again. Their lives are 180 degrees different. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we listen to another story of radical conversation as a result from hearing the voice of God.

The Voice - Be Encouraged

Discouragement affects us all - believers and non-believers. We can find ourselves discouraged about work, discouraged about family members, discouraged about our finances, discouraged about politics, discouraged by natural disasters, and discouraged by mass shootings. But praise be to our God Who encourages us. Did you know that even Jesus needed to be encouraged? Join us this Sunday to hear God’s encouraging Word for His people.
