Due to precautionary measures put in place today by South Washington County Schools, we will need to cancel our Sunday gathering planned for this coming Sunday, March 15. We received word today from the district saying that they are “taking steps to limit crowds or other large gatherings in [their] schools.” Those steps include our use of the building on Sunday.

In the meantime, in light of this Sunday’s cancelation, I’d encourage you to gather with your family in whatever way might feel redeeming and refreshing for you. Maybe take the time to catch up on one of Pastor Brett’s sermons in the Acts series that you’ve missed. Or if you missed any of our vision refresh sermons from January, maybe leverage some time on Sunday to watch one of those. Or, gather as a family, sing a few songs, and select a passage of Scripture on which too meditate together. Again, whatever might feel redeeming and refreshing for your family under the circumstances. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding! And please spread the word ...

Encouraging excerpt from David Platt's book, Radical, on God's good gift of Himself. "If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! (Luke 11:13) Why does Luke 11 refer to the Father giving the Holy Spirit? To be honest with you, I used to think, What if I wasn't a...Keep Reading
The leadership of CRC is "Complementarian," and we try to live and teach and counsel and preach accordingly. What does is it mean to be "complementarian" anyway? Mary Kassian is one of the people responsible for coining the term. She wrote a helpful primer article on the idea: Complementarianism for Dummies. Read the entire article here.
