We have decided to cancel tonight's activities. Please stay home and stay warm.
Just a reminder that both the GEMS and Cadets will be having pizza tonight, so send them hungry.
The Cadet meal will be held next week Wednesday, December 10, from 5:00 - 6:30PM.
All Cadets need to bring a dessert (12-15 servings), and should arrive at 4:45PM to help with this meal. Watch for a note with more information to come home with you Cadet tomorrow night.
Due to the cold temperatures, wind chill, and blowing snow all Wednesday night programs are cancelled.
As our first winter storm arrives I thought I should remind you of our cancellation policy.
VRC cancels activities on days Zeeland Public Schools are cancelled due to severe weather. If school is not cancelled and severe weather begins, a decision to cancel or not will be made as soon as possible. I will use this blog to give updates on those days, as well as vrieslandchurch.org, and WOOD TV8.
In all weather situations please use your own judgment. If programs have not been cancelled and you do not feel it is safe to drive, please do not. If you are scheduled to serve, just contact me and let me know.
The VRC staff will be hosting the meal tomorrow night. Come out between 5-6:30pm and you will be served hot dogs, burgers, fries and more.
Thank you for the continued support of our Hand2Hand program at Adams Elementary. We currently provide weekend food to 24 children each Friday. As a church, VRC is offering complete Thanksgiving meals to the 19 families represented in our 24 students. Check out the table in the lobby this Sunday and see where you can help.
This Wednesday October, 15 is the first Fund Raiser meal of the ministry year. The GEMS will be hosing their baked potato, creamed turkey, and dessert and salad meal. Come out anytime between 5:00-6:30 pm to the youth building, enjoy a delicious meal, and support our GEMS program.
They are in need of help taking down the tables and chairs at 6:30.
Kids Hope students and mentors began meeting last week. There are still ten students waiting for a mentor, and referrals will continue to come in. Please consider spending an hour a week mentoring. You will make such a difference!!! Please contact me (Gayle DeJong) if you are interested.
