Sunday Night Special
On Sunday, June 5 at 5:00 p.m., pastor and theologian Chris Ganski will discuss the Synodical report of the “Committee to Provide Pastoral Guidance re: Same-Sex Marriage.” Chris will discuss what is at the crux of the issue Biblically, theologically, and pastorally—and how this issue must impact how we “do church” in the future. What does it look like to be a church of both grace and truth?
Synod is the annual meeting of the governing body of the Christian Reformed denomination (read more >). Please pray for Synod 2016, which will begin meeting on June 10. Delegates from Classis Wisconsin are Pastors Chris Ganski and Mike Winnowski, Elder Rob Buikema, and Deacon Ben Li. To see the agenda, follow the proceedings via webcast or live blog, or view other Synod documents, visit the CRCNA Synod coverage site.
Women’s Summer Bible Study
All women (high school age and older) are invited to a six-week women’s Bible study. They will be studying SheReadsTruth’s summer study on the book of Acts. They’ll read through the entire book of Acts, discover God’s big plan for His church, and better understand why we are called to reach out. Join them Wednesday nights for a time of discussion and prayer, beginning June 8.
At the May 18 Congregational Meeting, members passed the annual budget and Mission Fund as presented by the Council. After confirmation of nominees by Brookfield CRC members, the following office-bearers were chosen by lot: Elders Jim Hurley, Ed Roth, and Pat Vanderburgh; Deacons Taylor Huenink, Dan Jongetjes, and Wally Smith. Thanks to outgoing Elders Rob Buikema, Phil Bylsma, and Mike Huenink, and Deacons Sandy Boersma, Ben Fox, and Kevin Yttre…for your years of service to the Church!
