Good Friday services

In just a few short weeks we will be entering Passion week…this is the week that we remember Jesus death and anticipate the joy of RESURRECTION!

On Friday, April 22, we will be having combined Good Friday Services with 2 of our sister churches, Calvary Baptist and Immanuel Church (both in Holland).  Everyone is invited to these times of worship and reflection (childcare available thru age 3).
We will be holding 2 services:

If you are a instrumentalist or vocalist, we’d love to have you involved in our Traditional service.  Contact Pastor Jeremy to sign up!

Have a great day!!

I came across this blog (by Katherine, one of our own students here @fbczeeland) and wanted to share with our church family. I wanted to share this quote from one of her recent blog posts:

Who will escalate the love of God to people who have never heard of HIS love?

A very challenging question indeed.

Katherine's Blog

These past few months it has been amazing to see/watch/be apart of the stories of God’s faithfulness that are happening at First.  For example, here are some of the stories that people shared Sunday.

How is God working in YOU?  We’d love to hear!!  (if you missed Sunday, you can download the podcast via iTunes, or stream online at fbczeeland.org.

Incredible story…

Online Worship

I was reading an article today about Online Worship.  It is found at http://www.outreachmagazine.com/features/3822-How-Online-Worship-Changing-Church.html .  I like being able to reach people in a remote area who might not have other opportunities for fellowship, but feel it would be a less than healthy alternative for someone who has access to a face-to-face fellowship.  What do you think?



Sunday, September 12 (that’s Back to Church Sunday btw), we are having a church wide potluck at 12pm (after our Adult Bible Connections classes)…everyone is invited.

Church will provide:

  • hotdogs (w/condiments etc)
  • plates/utensils
  • lemonade
  • pasta salad
  • potato salad

If you would like to bring a dish to share (desserts are always fun…so are other food delicacies), please do!

If you can help serve:

  • email us at:  fbczeeland@tds.net
  • call (616.772.4377)
  • sign up at the Welcome Center on Sunday

Grace and peace!!
