CARE & FELLOWSHIP
NEW! You can now find your district elders, deacons & care team leaders in our church directory app! Just tap into the app, then “Groups.” Find the letter grouping your last name falls in & within that group you’ll see the names of your elders & deacons. Care teams are divided into two teams per district, so then again – you’ll need to find your team wherever your last name lands. Then you can click any of their names to access their contact information.
Bulletin announcements are due by noon on Thursdays. You can call them in (616-698-7930), email them to the church office, or write a note & drop it in Keri Penning’s mailbox in the copy machine room.

Freedom Opportunity Reminder: At Providence, we are blessed with a ministry to help us maintain & grow in our freedom in Christ. We have both men’s & women’s freedom teams trained to help us gently & prayerfully seek the Spirit’s help to live free. They confidentially meet with individuals who are taken through a process of searching their hearts & addressing past or present wounds or sins that are hindering or limiting their freedom in Christ. If you’re interested in learning more, contact the office at 616-698-7930. You can also find more information at the Set Free Ministries website at setfreemin.org. You will not regret seeking freedom.
