Worship God – Know Christ – Live by the Spirit

Palmerston Christian Reformed Church strives to be a church community that nurtures disciples for Christ, through the working of the Holy Spirit, for the glory of God.

Apart – but worshipping together

Regretfully, but with a sense that this is the proper and appropriate response, the executive of Palmerston CRC has made the decision to cancel Sunday morning and evening services at Palmerston CRC until further notice.

We are taking this action in order to join local and global efforts to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  While this is a difficult decision we trust that our members will understand that it is important to cooperate with local authorities to reduce risk to human life.

Please monitor this website for updates, or contact your community care group leaders for more information.

This Sunday’s message is based on Psalm 91 – Dwelling in the Shelter of the Most High. Brittany Heikamp, John Katerberg and Ken Labbe join the service today with an offering of music, and Brittany also reads the story of Lazarus for the younger children. We trust you will be blessed as you worship together from your own location.

For this Sunday’s sermon, Pastor Andrew breaks from the Lenten series on the Seven Deadly Sins and preaches about how fear can lead us to a time of spiritual growth as with the account of the disciples in a boat in the storm as recorded in Mark 4:35-41. This message is available as an audio file or video.

On Saturday, May 23, 2020 Palmerston Christian Reformed Church will be hosting a free concert by Jeremy Benjamin.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and while there is no admission charge, there will be a door collection with 80% of the proceeds going to the Beauty for Ashes Transformation House (BATH) in Arthur. BATH’s purpose is “to provide a sanctuary, a safe space for women voluntarily transitioning out of human trafficking, the sex trade and addiction into a stable lifestyle, working alongside already existing long term community programs.”

Please join us for an evening of music and celebration in support of a meaningful and worthy ministry.
