We are called Reformed because our history is rooted in the 16th century Protestant Reformation. We continue to affirm the Reformation teachings of salvation by faith in Christ alone, and the Bible as the only rule of faith and conduct. We are called Church because we are part of the universal family of God, through which our relationships to God, to each other, and the world are nurtured.

Thank you for the other teachers who decided to stay on for this upcoming season. I would like to ask members of our congregation to consider becoming a Sunday school teacher. If you like kids, and like to teach, you have the right mix. Please consider this rewarding and fun activity. If you would like more info on this, please contact Bill Eenink at 519 436 0832 or bill.eenink@teksavvy .com. Thank you.
