Harderwyk ministries update...

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.

Holland Area Newcomers Dutch Costume Resale

CANCELLED for 2020.

From the Executive Pastor

It is early in the morning and the crowds are looking for Jesus as are the disciples. Jesus has slipped out of the house to pray, and the disciples are frantically looking for him. Eventually Peter and the disciples find him and implore him to return and minister to the growing crowd. Jesus responded, which I am confident shocked them because it was so radically different than what they expected, “Let us go somewhere else – to the nearby villages – so I can preach there also. That is why I have come” (Mark 1:35-39). Central to Jesus’ ministry was proclaiming the kingdom of God had arrived (Mark 1:15).


Central to Harderwyk Ministries is its commitment to proclaiming the life transforming message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is this commitment empowered by the Holy Spirit that transforms, fosters community, compels us to testify to our neighbors and friends about the gospel and invite them to join us in worship and as partners in ministry.


This commitment and the ministries of Harderwyk that proclaim and equip people to live it are made possible by your financial support and gifts of time. As partners in ministry, we should be thanking each other for the gifts that support our ministry, facilities and staff.


As we close the financial books on 2019, through your generosity we were able to replenish the Reserve Fund, fulfill our Ministry Share commitment, and begin the new year with a good operating cash balance.


Thank you. As partners in ministry your gifts of time and financial resources is what allows us to share the life-giving message of the gospel.


With a deep sense of gratitude,

Darwin K. Glassford

Executive Pastor
