CANCELLED - June 28
Last year, Fusion came together for monthly potlucks where we built community and fostered relationships. This year, we are continuing to build connections in many ways, one way is through our potlucks. Each one of you are invited! If you are new to Fusion or you have been here for some time, you are invited! Mark your calendars with the dates above. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
"...so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others."
On the 2nd Sunday evening of each month (see dates below - there are some exceptions due to special events) we offer an opportunity for small groups to meet. The night begins with a potluck supper at 5:00 and is followed by small groups breaking outs.
This year we are offering an opportunity for new small groups to form. If you have been looking for a small group opportunity this might be a good fit for you to meet with others also looking for a small group. The following studies will be offered:
The Resolving Everyday Conflict small group Bible study is an eight-week DVD and discussion study with workbook and 30 minutes of preparation/reflection time between sessions that unpacks the amazing things the Bible has to say about conflict and relationships in a fun and non-threatening way. Facilitated by Pastor Bill Lindner and limited to 10 participants in this group. Would consider starting additional small groups at different times as well. Here is a video link with more information.
Engage is a new kind of small group Bible study for Christians of all shapes, states and sizes that combines a provocative Bible study, group interaction and spiritual formation. After an intro session, there will be 6 study/interactions on different encounters with Jesus in the Gospels. Material was Developed by Bill Senyard - developer of the Forgiving Path - and will be led by Pastor Darwin Glassford. For questions on this small group study, please contact Pastor Darwin.
Dates are as follows:
CANCELLED THROUGH APRIL 30

Coronavirus COVID-19 Response
March 13, 2020
In response to growing concerns about COVID-19 we want to assure you that Harderwyk Ministries is committed to the physical and spiritual health of those who enter our doors.
After reviewing the current State Of Michigan guidelines, Holland Classis recommendations, and a variety of other resources, we have made the very difficult decision to close our campus to all ministry opportunities effective immediately. In following internal protocol and the State of Michigan’s closing of all school systems, our campus will be closed for all services, meetings, The Function, and any other previously scheduled events through Wednesday April 1. Community Night activities that were scheduled to end April 1 are also suspended completely. Leadership will be assessing the overall status of this situation on an ongoing basis, and adapting timing where possible.
Why are we doing this?
- To honor the authority and expertise of the leaders of our state, trusting they would not issue these recommendations without good reason.
- This is an act of love for those in our church and neighborhood who are most vulnerable due to compromised health. Social distancing early on in other countries has born very proven results, allowing hospitals to care for more manageable numbers of the critically ill.
The leadership of Harderwyk Ministries will be meeting at 9am Monday morning to formulate plans to effectively care for and minister to our congregations in a variety of ways in the coming weeks. Please be on the lookout for further communications regarding our ministry life in a challenging time.
Yet in the midst of this season that has disrupted our lives, stirred our fears, with each day bringing new challenges, we join our voices with the Psalmist (46): We will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. For God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Our “ever-present” God has been and will be with us always. It is in our triune God that we trust, hope and find an all surpassing peace. And as bearers of that peace we have an opportunity in this season of pandemic and panic to be a fragrance of God’s peace in the lives of each other and in the community around us.
Blessings from the Staff and Council of Harderwyk Ministries
