Christian Reformed Church (CRC) Prayer Requests

(World Renew) Disaster Response (DRS)— In May, hundreds of tornadoes touched down across the central United States, causing severe damage in 13 states. In response, World Renew is busy assessing needs and planning for cleanup, repairs, and reconstruction. Ask God to provide wisdom for staff and volunteers as they minister to people affected by the storms.

(Back to God Ministries) Burkina Faso— Our French ministry team in Burkina Faso reports an increased level of attacks on Christian churches in the country, leaving church leaders and families displaced. “Brothers and sisters, support them in prayer as they certainly need your spiritual support,” shares Rev. Marc Nabie, French ministry coordinator.

(Chaplaincy and Care) Workplaces—A growing number of our chaplains work in the industrial or corporate world, serving the needs of employees affected by crises at home or work who may not have a spiritual support network. Interacting with employees in their own environment requires unique communication and relationship skills. Please pray for these chaplains and the people they serve.


The congregation of Hope in Christ Church has made the Spirit-filled decision to move forward and become a healthy missional church. This week’s Missional Marker is Heartfelt worship (Psalm 138:1a; John 4:23)

  • We exalt and celebrate God for who he is, what he has done, what he is doing and what he will do.
  • Worship reflects careful preparation to help give voice to many dimensions of response to God such as adoration, praise, contrition, lament, and commitment.
  • People leave worship knowing something more about the heart of God and about their own hearts.


The Stomp is Coming!! The Sunnyland Stomp, which is held for one day each summer, will be on Saturday, July 13th from 3:00-8:00 p.m. Come and join in the fun of walking around the Sunnyland neighborhood and visiting the many various artisans, food vendors and businesses who participate!

Help With Homeless Project: Project Homeless Connect is looking for volunteers to help with a one-day event for people experiencing homelessness in Whatcom County. You can help with set-up on July 18 or help with the event itself on July 19 at Bellingham High School.
