What’s the most
in our church?
That’s right, the Nursery! A key element of our vision is to reach
families in the Holland area with the gospel and a well rounded
balance of opportunities for spiritual growth. Studies show that
parents make their decision to stay at a church because of the quality
of preaching, friendliness, and most importantly — the Nursery!

“Symphony” (I Lift My Hands) with Louie Giglio
It’s staggering when we begin to realize that all creation is singing the
praises of the One who fashioned and formed the Universe. Yet,
singing stars and earth’s ovation cannot drown God’s desire to hear
your voice. In the midst of a miraculous and immense symphony of
praise, God is still mindful of you, going to extraordinary lengths to give
you life and breath through His Son.

in a speck of dust.
