Programs, Events & Ministries

Coming in November!

DEVOTED Series Note

We are entering into an exciting season of renewal at Gibson Church. We are participating in a specific process with The Church Renewal Lab. We are excited for and about this process as we intentionally seek the Spirit’s leading for God’s good and preferred future for Gibson Church. Acts 2 is an origin story of the Church, and we are going to listen there for a vision for us, as well, to be a vibrant, missional community of Christ-followers in our neighborhood and world today. Please join us for the journey in person or online! We have room for you!

And a Covid note:

Out of an abundance of sacrificial love and care for our sisters, brothers, neighbors, and guests during this Covid age, we mask while we are indoors, and maintain healthy physical distancing in our seating, in addition to paying careful attention to best practice for cleaning and disinfecting before and after we gather.

Cadets

Every other Wednesday 6:30-7:30  – Dan Knoll

Luke 2:52 states that “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” The goal of the Calvinist Cadet Corps, based upon that verse, is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social) by providing Christian men with a uniquely designed structure, program, and materials so that they can mentor boys effectively.

Events

A Thanksgiving Day Celebration

When: Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 10AM

Where: Downtown Holland at the Farmers’ Market at the Civic Center

Why: We want to gather communally and publicly outdoors to praise and thank our Good Father for his goodness, as well as actively participate in preparing a special Thanksgiving gift or act of kindness to be shared with others in our community.

Who: Gibson will gather with Providence CRC, Pillar, Beechwood RCA, and others to give tangible testimony to the unity of the Body of Christ in our community.

What: We will worship outdoors under the Farmers’ Market cover if needed. We’ll be led by a joint worship team in singing. We’ll be led in prayers of thanksgiving. Pastor Rod will bring the meditation, and we will present our offerings of thanks before the Lord. We will dismiss then to deliver our acts and gifts of kindness that we have each prepared.
