Monthly Capital Campaign – The December capital campaign is for World Renew. World Renew is a ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in North America and also the ministry that our missionary family Anthony and Sara Sytsma work under. World Renew’s vision is “a world where people experience and extend Christ's compassion and live together in hope as God's community.” Their mission is to be compelled by God’s deep passion for justice & mercy as they join communities around the world to renew hope, reconcile lives, and restore creation. World Renew's worldwide ministry is three-fold: community development, disaster response & rehabilitation and peace & justice. You can learn more about this organization at https://worldrenew.net/. Keith Wright will be joining us for worship on December 15th and will be sharing more about this ministry. The offering will be taken on Sunday, December 22nd.
