Missions Update


Dear Friends at Goshen CRC: Although he lived in Mexico City (seven hours to the east of Guadalajara), Iván started to attend New Life Church’s worship services and Bible studies by Zoom last year when a friend invited him. Then he took Inicios (our profession of faith class) by phone and trusted in Christ as his Savior. Finally, he recently moved to Guadalajara, and plans to be baptized and make his profession of faith in the next couple of weeks! Thank you for your partnership in the gospel in Mexico, including your very generous monthly support gifts! --Rev. Ben and Amy Meyer and family, Resonate Global Mission, Guadalajara, Mexico ([email protected])

Upcoming Events

Coffee Break, a community Bible study for women, will begin a new study on I Corinthians. We will begin via Zoom for the first 2 sessions with the goal of meeting at the Youth building for the remainder of the study. We will begin this study on Tuesday, April 6 at 3pm, Let Jo Rowe (728-9118) know if you are interested so she can get a study book to you.

GriefShare Support Group


GRIEFSHARE A SUPPORT GROUP THAT HELPS PEOPLE HEAL FROM THE PAIN OF GRIEF. What’s next after the memorial service? For many people who have lost loved ones, the feelings of loss only get worse. The mourning continues or gets covered up in unhelpful ways. Goshen Christian Reformed Church is sponsoring a program called GriefShare – it’s a national program that helps people heal from the pain of grief. The program features valuable video teaching from experts and experienced councilors as well as a workbook to help each person work through their own story and a group of people in similar situations to talk with. Join us for 13 sessions on Saturday afternoons at 1pm starting on April 3rd at in the Youth Building. Register at www.Goshen.Church/GriefShare or call Deb at 845-381-0533.

If you're stuck at home, I'd encourage you to reach out to another church member esp some of our elderly folks who might need some extra conversations or help during this season. If you are part of Goshen Church, and don't have a pictorial directory, contact us to see how to get one.

We posted some amazing resources for kids, adults and parents. Make sure check out RightNowMedia if you haven't already. We also posted the weekly Kids Church (252) videos, and some ways for parents to teach kids at home.
