Special Announcement |

Versiti Michigan blood drive has been cancelled for Thursday April 2. The drive will be rescheduled and information updated soon. If you signed up for a slot, you will receive a call to reschedule once the date and details are set. Community donors have answered the call amid this growing crisis and we are happy to share, that our local hospitals are currently receiving the necessary lifesaving units. Versiti is in the process of setting up a new staff mode that will keep the same small group of staff working together throughout the community. This will further protect their donors and staff from exposure and spread of COVID-19. We apologize for the late cancellation. Please know your donation is important! God has a plan and a purpose. Please be praying for the staff of Versiti as they work through setting up their new staff mode.

THANK YOU to our wonderful community! Over 78 units of blood were collected on March 29, and all spots for the April 2 drive have now been filled!

Due to the ongoing need to practice safe distancing, we will not be able to accept "walk-ins" at the blood drives to ensure the safety of donors and volunteers. Thank you for donating and caring for our community!

Blood Drive | March 29, 9a to 2p | Kentwood Campus
A blood donation truly is a “gift of life” that we can give to others in our community. Blood donations meet a critical need and will therefore go on as planned.  Please be sure to sign up for a time slot today! Time slots are filling up fast. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept "walk-ins" on the day of the blood drive as we will need to honor the appointments that have been set. Thank you for donating!

Because of Him, we are able!

We encourage you to stay connected with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and their recommendations:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • void touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing


Educate yourself, remember that FACT over Fear is critical as we live our daily lives

  • God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity but of power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)


Once we resume meeting onsite for worship

  • If you are sick, please stay home and visit your primary care physician
  • We will continue our practice of regularly sanitizing our spaces between weekend gatherings
  • We are performing a deeper disinfectant cleaning in our kids' spaces and coffee areas
  • We are providing additional hand sanitizing stations and tissue boxes in high-traffic areas
  • Greeters and ushers will continue offering you a warm welcome on weekends; they will offer “air fives” or elbow bumps, but won’t be initiating handshakes, high-fives or hugs


Some “normal” operations will be revised to provide a lower risk of the spread of infection of any illness:

  • OFFERING:
    We recommend that you give your tithe and offering online.  We will not pass offering plates during the service but will have them available on the way out of the auditorium
  • GREETING:
    When we have a time of greeting during services, we recommend you greet each other with smiles and waves instead of handshakes
  • DOORS:
    To minimize your need to touch door handles, our volunteer teams will hold exterior doors open to greet you.
  • COMMUNION:
    We will not serve communion in our regular tradition when we observe the sacrament on Sundays. Instead, we will have prepacked individually wrapped elements for our communion times.


Online Services:

All services have been postponed until we can safely gather once again. Join us online instead:

Kentwood Campus | join us on our website or Facebook Page.
We will livestream our 9:00 a.m. service which is then available to watch at any time thereafter.

Wyoming Campus | join us through our Facebook Group
We will post a live session of the 11:00 a.m. Sunday service.

We will provide necessary updates as needed. We ask that you be prayerful for our world and community, specifically for those who are directly impacted by this virus.
