ANNOUNCEMENTS

Ecclesiastes - The Search for Meaning - This August, please join
us at Cedar Church as we wrestle with the meaning of life as 'it
really is!' What do we do when work seems so tedious, life is
unfair, fools get ahead, nothing makes us happy, old age treats us
with cruelty, and our eventual death seems so depressing? The
Preacher hopes to answer that question by looking at the futility of
life fromGod's high and wise perspective. Pastor Steve invites
you to jump feet-first into life's most knotty questions as we travel
through the twelve winding and circuitous chapters of the Book of
Ecclesiastes.

Bridal Shower - All ladies are invited to attend a bridal shower
for Kailyn Baumon Wednesday, July 23, 7 PM at Hudsonville
Christian School in the Library. Please see Deb Kooienga for more
information.

MISSIONS UPDATE

Below is the most recent update from Ben VanDyke, serving on summer project
with Spartan Christian Fellowship in Petoskey, MI.

Dear Cedar Church family

Thank you for your continued prayer and support, I've seen firsthand how
God has been answering prayer here at project and I have the joy of
telling you how Hes been working! The biggest answer to prayer is one
guy named Andrew Maxwell becoming a Christian. His older brother is a
former MSU quarterback who spoke at SCF one night just before the
year ended, and Andrew was there filming. A staff guy met with him later
that week and as a result he decided to come to project. At the time
Andrew didn't really understand himself to be a sinner and more than
that didn't understand the gospel. But this project has been the means by
which he has not only heard the gospel but has come to love and cherish
it. It blows my mind to see the immediate change in his life, just this week
I was evangelizing with him and he not only was able to share the gospel
but he was eager to do it! It has given me inexpressible joy that I can call
this guy a brother in Christ.

Another way that prayer has been answered has been in the leadership
and teaching here. The staff left two weeks ago and since then I have
been in charge along with another MSU student named Darcy Shepard.
Things have gone remarkably smoothly and all the students really enjoy
each others company. The teaching especially has been sanctifying,
and its served to make me very aware of my own insufficiency and my
dependence on God. I could honestly give the best talk in the world but I
know that if God wasn't there working then it wouldn't help anybody. In
actuality I feel like every time I walk up to the podium I feel as though
what I have is mediocre at best, but through it God has not only
encouraged me but has really used it to serve everyone else. More and
more I've been realizing that anything good that comes from us is really
from God (Ephesians 2:10).

Please continue to be in prayer for us. Pray for Halea, another student
here who is not a Christian. She recently lost her uncle to suicide so
please pray that through this experience she would come to love the
gospel and be comforted by it just as Andrew has. Pray also for Ross
who lost his mom to cancer, and for the other students I mentioned in the
last update. Many of us are starting to feel burned out because of the
intenseness of project, please pray that we would find our strength and
our rest in the gospel. Finally pray for our evangelism, that many of our
friends and co-workers would hear, and trust in the gospel themselves.

Thank you for your love and for your support!
In Christ
-Ben
