    • Thank you for reaching out to us, Lyla. I’ll be checking with the office this morning to see about a bulletin being mailed to you. We’re so grateful for your desire to stay connected. Blessings and peace to you.

  1. My Mom is now the lovely age of 97 and enjoys reading the church bulletin so much. Please continue to send it to her. She is remarkably spry and we are so blessed to still have her here with us. Always, Cynthia Sharpe Logan

    • Thank you for reaching out and letting us know, Cynthia. I’ll check with the office this morning in regard to the bulletin being mailed to your mother, Lyla. We’re grateful for your enthusiasm in staying connected. Blessings and peace to you.

  2. Looking for a church that studies the bible. I am interested in finding an Adult Bible Study (such as Sunday School Adult classes and weekday Adult classes).

    • Blessings to you this morning, Sharon. We do offering Wednesday evening activities; with a meal at 5:30, a brief service at 6:15, and group Bible studies at 7:00. We usually end around 8:00-ish. During our service we have more of a Bible discussion than a sermon where we all work through and study the Scripture reading. Often we are previewing or going deeper into Sunday’s passage.

      Our adult Sunday school is taking a few weeks in a targeted topical study, but is traditionally a Bible study as well. That’s at 9:30 am Sunday mornings. You’re welcome to come and join us at either of those times, and we would love to get to know you.

  3. My name is Kent Hamilton Broom and I was baptized in your church the 28th day of June in 1953. I am writing today to request a copy of my Baptismal Certificate. If you would please see if you could locate this information I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
    With warm regards,
    Kent H. Broom

    • Blessings to you, Kent. I believe we are looking to accommodate that record for you. Have you been in contact with our front office so that we can get details on how to get it to you? (616) 754-3445 I am passing the request on now as I reply. Again, blessings to you and thank you.

  4. Hi
    My mother was wondering if there was a place for ashes
    to be interred in the catacombs beneath the church ?
    She understood this to be so several years ago

    • Blessings to you, Laura. We do indeed have a Columbarium with places for ashes to be interred just off our our Fellowship Hall downstairs. Details are available through our front office if you’d like to stop in or call (616) 754-3445.

  5. I just moved to the area and looking to find a school for my son to start back up at. He was in GSRP in Lansing and it is full here in Greenville. He is 4 1/2.
    Thanks

    • We love Miss Candy’s Preschool, Amanda, and I’m betting you will too. I’ve passed your note along to Miss Candy and you can call her at the Preschool’s direct line (616)754-7608. She is away at a training seminar right now, though, so she won’t be able to call back until Monday. If you’d like, you could call or stop by our main office on Friday and Amanda can give you some initial information. Thank you for checking with us. I hope I get to meet your great kid soon!

  6. Hello there Miss Candy,

    I am the marketing and enrollment committee chair at St. Charles School. We would like to reach out to the parents of your students entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2018 and welcome them to consider St. Charles School as the next step in their Christian educational experience. Several parents at St. Charles School have recommended that I reach out to your preschool because of our similar underlying educational philosophy of including the Christian faith in the educational process and the smooth transition their children had moving from “Miss Candy’s preschool” to Kindergarten at St. Charles School.

    We would love to leave some literature with you about our K-8 school that could be sent home with your students who would be entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2018. We would also be happy to send a couple of St. Charles School representatives (most likely our principal and myself) to visit your preschool to answer any questions parents or staff may have about the transition to St. Charles School. We were hoping you might consider us attending a spring event you may be having such as a school picnic, field day, choir performance, graduation, carnival, etc. where we could provide information about their student’s next step in their Christian education and answer any questions they may have. If it would be helpful for us to come visit your preschool at a different time, we can make ourselves available when parents would be available, perhaps on a particular day (or two) right after school when they are picking their student up from preschool.

    Please let me know if you would consider us leaving our information with you and if you would like us to attend a spring event or meeting to provide the parents of your students with more information. I can be contacted at pjktjohnson@gmail.com or (616) 263-0100 for more information and to make arrangements.

    Your students get a great foundation in their Christian education at your preschool. Thank you for considering this opportunity for your students to continue to grow in their Christian faith.

    Take care and God bless,

    Katey Johnson
    St. Charles School Marketing and Enrollment Chair

    • Thank you, Katey. I have passed this information along to Ms. Candy and our Preschool Board. They’re meeting tomorrow evening (July 17) for the end of the year wrap up.

    “An Evening with Rev. Ole Amble” will be presented by Gary Hauck, MCC dean of arts and sciences, at the Barn Theater on Friday, August 31 at 7 pm.  Ole Amble was Montcalm County’s pioneer preacher of the 1800s and early 1900s, who pastored up to seven area churches at one time with over 1,000 members.  As a Norwegian immigrant, he became the spiritual leader of Montcalm’s Scandinavian communities. During the presentation, Hauck will portray Rev. Amble telling his life story.   Admission is free, but a freewill offering will be received to benefit the Flat River Historical Museum, “Bridging the Generations.”

    • Thank you, Nels! I have added it to a couple of Facebook pages and I am sending it for our print publications as well. This sounds like a great way to connect with our history.

  8. Dear friends, Dr. Gary Hauck from MCC will be presenting the following program on August 31st. I’d like to note that First Congregational’s long time pastor Rev. St. Clare Parson was a very good friend of Pastor Ole Amble. Please feel free to add this info to your Facebook page or monthly publications.

  12. Hello, My name is Kali Royce, I’m 32 years old and from Grand Rapids MI. My 2 daughters and I moved up here 3 years ago to start over and make a better life for ourselves and it was the best decision we could have made. That’s how I met my amazing boyfriend/soulmate/my yang Austin Koster. We both work in the restaurant industry and met at Flos Pizzeria and have worked together ever since. Most recently at castle brewing due to a series of unfortunate events at Flos, but was great full for them taking a chance on us. But that ended on 11/16/2019. See Austin and I are 100% victims of a con artist landlord. She illegally evicted us on 09/20/2019 and changed the locks added dead bolts and Boarded up the doors to our entry way all by 09/23/2019 without even going to a court to file for an eviction. She also kidnapped my 10 year olds and brought her to her absentee fathers in Kalamazoo with no ones permission. It took me two weeks to get her back. But those 2 nights we slept in our just recently purchased car due to having to sell my brand new fusion I worked so hard for, to pay her rent that was only 6 out of 7 days late. This being my first time late on rent in 16 months and that was due to my situation at Flos. Well my landlord constant harassment by sending process servers and police officers and family to my job to harass us finally took a toll on Castle and they had to let us go. Which we understand. But it’s just one thing after another. First the car broke down after that weekend. The landlord shut off our WiFi access, forbid me to park in the driveway. Added a door between the kitchen and the dining room so we no longer have access to it. They just make everything so uncomfortable for us to get us to move out on our own and it’s totally illegal. But yet no ones doing anything to stop them. And that’s where I come in. I feel like I need to take a stand and make sure this stops here and no one else’s gets taken advantage by her. We have been actively seeking jobs. And we’ve been going to food pantry’s and helping friend out with rides to make a little extra for gas but it’s so stressful worrying about that every single day. How we’re gonna make it to drop the kids off at the bus stop or make it to an interview with no gas. Or food pantry with no gas. I asked DHS and 8cap and they say they don’t have the funds. I’ve also reached out to 211 and even tried making a go fund me and nothing. So now my next thought was maybe a church would help my family out in this time of need. Or not a on going or long term situation. But a single mom trying to be strong for her girls needing a little help. And Austin. Lol. He tries so hard everyday to try but some days I can tell the constant bullying and getting shoved down is getting to him. He doesn’t deserve any of this but chooses to stick by my side as I always will for him. We had court on the 31st and a judgement was entered against him but dismissed against me when her intent was to evict me the whole tone till the landlord realized she never served me. But even after that I have no idea how she half won on 0 grounds. We’re never late. We’re not loud or messy people. Stand up tenants if you ask me. But I filed a motion for a new trial for new evidence. My landlord never provided a police report along with her 24 hour notice to quit and finally after finding one I understand why. And Austin has yet to be served with the order to evict. I know we’re right and now I think they know we’re right and not backing down. We have court again the 12/04/2019 and hope to open the courts eyes as to what’s really been going on. But it’s a long hard road till then.
    Please consider us as an option to help out during the holidays, and if there’s any volunteer work my family can do in return, we would be more than grateful to do so.
