Service of Prayer and Communion: Sunday at 6 pm:
This past week the CRC Synod recommended the Human Sexuality Report to congregations as a useful summary of biblical teaching on sexuality. They also declared the Report’s interpretation as confessional. Neland Ave. CRC and Classis GR East – our Classis – have been formally reprimanded. Neland is instructed to immediately remove from office their deacon who is in a gay marriage.
This news touches all of us at COS and leaves large questions ahead for our discernment as a congregation. For some of us, this news is especially weighty, even wounding. This Sunday evening (June 19) at 6 pm, all are welcome to gather for a service of prayer and communion. We will gather as a body united in Christ, to bring our laments and our concerns to the Lord in prayer and song.
Please pray also for Council who meet this Thursday (June 23) as we discern God’s leading in view of this news.
You are also welcome to participate in worship via Zoom at 10 am this Sunday. Please subscribe to our Email Newsletter list prior to Sunday to receive the Zoom link in your inbox each week.
