What's Happening

In America, the average age of first exposure to online pornography is eleven years old.  Parents of​ ​​​​​​​all ages are welcome to join us at Western Michigan Christian High School on Wednesday, April 1, at 7 PM in the “Big Room.”  Dan Landstra, Unity Christian Bible teacher, ​will ​lead this evening to inform and discuss this important issue and the impact pornography has on our children.  In addition to gaining a greater understanding of the issue, special emphasis will be placed on strategies for parents to help their children as they confront a culture which is more accepting of pornography than ever before.​   Please feel free to invite friends, neighbors​, and our fellow partnering Christian school parents.​

Announcements for Friday, March 27, 2015

 Lent is a time marked out in order to pray, fast and reflect

on what the events of Christ's death and Resurrection mean

for our lives.  Our Lenten verse today is from Isaiah 53:4-6:

 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
    it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
    a punishment for his own sins!
But he was pierced for our rebellion,
    crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
    He was whipped so we could be healed.
All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
    We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the Lord laid on him
    the sins of us all.
