In our final message in the Crazy Love sermon series, we ask the question, “So What?”
We turn to Philippians 2:12-18.
During this service we will share the sacrament of Holy Communion. You are encouraged to prepare the “bread and cup” and participate with us.
Nov 8, 2020
How do we know whether or not we are using our God-given gifts properly? Take the test! We turn to I Corinthians 12:1-11.
Nov 1, 2020
Following Jesus is an “all or nothing” proposition. That’s what Jesus says in Luke 9:23. Are we all-in?
Oct 25, 2020
“The very fact that a holy, eternal, all-knowing, all-powerful, merciful, fair, and just God loves you and me is nothing short of astonishing,” writes Francis Chan (Crazy Love, p 61). We turn to Matthew 7:7-11 to hear more about this loving God, AND to experience that love.
Oct 18, 2020
This morning we begin a new sermon series called Crazy Love drawing from Francis Chan’s book of the same title. We turn to Psalm 19:1-4 and Isaiah 6:1-7 where we meet an amazing and holy God. Our Call to Worship this morning is a Creation Calls video highlighting the song by Brian Doerksen. Please pause the video and click here to watch the video after Pastor Rita indicates.
We share the communion meal during the service, those worshiping with us on line are
reminded to prepare their own bread and cup for the sacrament.
Oct 11, 2020
This morning we celebrate Thanksgiving Day and turn to one final passage from Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians: “give thanks in all circumstances..” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). All circumstances?? Really? Look both ways, backward and forward, and we’ll see that we really can do this.
Oct 4, 2020
Pastor Rita leads us in worship this morning and continues her sermon series. Paul addresses one more issue in his first letter to the Thessalonians. We’ll find out what human sexuality and “s’mores” have in common. I Thessalonians 4:1-12.
Sept 27, 2020
We’ve been reading through a letter- a letter written to us. This morning we pick up the fourth issue that the letter addresses. (If you’ve been counting, you’ll know we missed one issue, which we’ll pick up next Sunday). This week we turn our attention to the end of the world. Does the end of the world as we know it scare you? We turn to I Thessalonians 4:13 – 5:11 where we are reminded that the coming day of the Lord will be a “very pleasant” thing.
Sept 20, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series. The second issue addressed in
Paul’s letter is about suffering. Paul has three things to say on this. We’ll read the
section of the letter that begins at chapter 2, verse 13, and goes into chapter 3, verse
Sept 13, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series. The first issue we address in this letter is the credibility and integrity of the writer. Is he genuine or is he in it for his own gain? We’ll have a look at the picture he holds up and decide if it looks like him. We’ll be reading from 1 Thessalonians 2: 1-12.
Sept 6, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue a sermon series from 1 Thessalonians.
The first paragraphs of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians are like the coming attractions or the trailer of a movie. It’s a teaser of what’s to come. We turn to I Thessalonians 1:1-10 for our preview.
August 30, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will begin a new sermon series from I Thessalonians. “You’ve Got Mail!” We turn to Acts 17 where we first hear about a new church plant in Thessalonica.
August 23, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series “Why”. We’ll be looking at one more
of Jesus’ “Why?” questions. This one is from the gospel of Matthew. The disciples are
in the middle of a furious storm and Jesus asks, “Why are you so afraid?” (Matthew
8:26). It’s obvious, isn’t it?
August 16, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series “Why”.
A lot of things happen while we are sleeping. But it’s not always time to sleep. “Why are you sleeping?” It’s another of Jesus’ “Why” questions (Luke 22:46).
August 9, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series “Why”. This morning our “Why” question is from Luke 18:15-30 where Jesus asks a certain rule, “Why do you call me good?” Good question!
August 2, 2020
Today Pastor Rita will continue her sermon series “Why”.
What does God want from us? What does he expect of us? Jesus doesn’t provide the answer. Instead he asks, “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?” (Luke 12:57.) This is our second message that looks at Jesus’ ‘Why’ questions.
July 26, 2020
Today we are celebrating Pastor Rita’s installation as Pastor here at Grace Church. We welcome

Pastor Rita Klein-Geltink
We’ve re-opened our doors. In Exodus 40 we read that “the glory of the Lord filled the temple.”
Whether we worship in our building or in our homes, we do so in the humble awareness that unless God is present, none of it matters. This concludes our “Hot Sermon Series” through Exodus.
July 5, 2020
This morning Pastor Rita Klein-Geltink will continue her summer series. Who would be so foolish as to worship a god made of gold? That’s what happens in Exodus 32:1-14. This morning’s message, Little Gods, of Gold or Tin, shows that we aren’t so different from the Israelites.
June 28, 2020
This Sunday our summer sermon series continues, and things are starting to get hotter-
- and rather “bitter”… We turn to Exodus 15:22-27. The Lord’s Supper will be shared
during this service; please have your “bread and cup” prepared beforehand. We also
celebrate with our Sunday School graduates this morning.
June 21, 2020
This Sunday Pastor Rita will continue our summer sermon series, A Hot Summer with a sermon entitled That Day. You’ve probably had one of “those days” when things changed for you, when you saw that God really was at work in your life. “That day the Lord saved…” (Exodus 14:30).
This week’s service also includes installation of our new office bearers – Katie Snoek, Jasper Hoogendam and Josh Kapteyn.
June 14, 2020
This Sunday we begin a summer sermons series called “More than a Camping Trip.” We are going to joining the Israelite's on their dusty travels through the wilderness. This Sunday’s message is from Exodus 13:17 through 14:14.
June 7, 2020
This morning Pastor Rita leads her first service as pastor of Grace Church. This morning's message is one of hope and confidence that God loves us because, well, just because! We hear God's word from Titus 3.
