Summer Book Study: The Myth of Equality
Are you wondering why our world is still struggling with racial issues? Do you want to respond to the challenges of racial injustice, but don’t know where to begin? Join Pastor Tom in a study of Ken Wytsma’s book, The Myth of Equality, which challenges the church to consider the history of racial inequality, how this inequality has persisted today, and how the gospel can lead the church to respond. Sign up on today’s Communication Card.

Serving Opportunities

Volunteer Schedule
Now that we are finally able to gather together we will need volunteers to help with set up, tear down, and greeter/usher. Please let Leslie know when you are available. Thank You!!!

Volunteer Opportunity 4 times per year
We are in need of an idividual to be responsible for water testing at the church. This job requires a person to collect a water sample, fill out a form, and drop off to the Kent Co. Health Department on Fuller. If this sounds like just the right thing for you, please contact Leslie.

Vergennes Blood Drive
On Monday, August 24 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. we will again be hosting a blood drive. Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, there is an immediate need for blood donors to ensure a safe supply. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. Click here to sign up!  For more information on the non profit company we have partnered with go to versiti.org/michigan.

Prayer Requests & Thanksgiving
Worship Lyrics

Lion and the Lamb
He’s coming on the clouds, kings and kingdoms will bow down
And every chain will break, as broken hearts declare His praise
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before You
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
So open up the gates, make way before the King of kings
Our God who calls the saved is here to set the captives free
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Unbroken Praise
Praise unbroken, Praise unending
Be Yours, be Yours forevermore
Praise untainted, Praise unfading
Be Yours, be Yours forevermore
Be Yours, be Yours forevermore
Unbroken praise be Yours, God, forever
All my praise be Yours, God, forever
Lord take this life, let it become Your throne
Unbroken praise, be Yours
My surrender, My devotion
Be Yours, be Yours forevermore
Be Yours, be Yours forevermore
So let my deeds outrun my words
And let my life outweigh my songs

Cornerstone (My Hope Is Built)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name
Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior’s love
Through the storm, He is Lord
Lord of all
When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
My anchor holds within the veil
When he shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in him be found
Dressed in his righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne
