[03/14/20]   Listening to the advice of an increasing number of experts and leaders regarding the Coronavirus the Chelwood Council has decided to cancel all worship activities for this coming Sunday. This addresses the need for social distancing (unnecessary contact with others) and keeps safe those in our church family who would be more vulnerable.

[10/08/19]   We’re working on remodeling our bathrooms to meet ADA expectations and compliance. The women’s restroom will also increase from two stalls to three stalls – one of which will be wheelchair accessible – and from one sink to two sinks. The men’s room will increase from one stall and one urinal to two stalls and one urinal and two sinks. This will allow us to serve an increasing number of people.

We desperately need accessible bathrooms. Not only is this a need for a couple of people in our congregation, but we can't state that we are an accessible, welcoming church unless we tackle this project. It's a health issue as well as a moral one. We need to walk the talk.

As we’ve said before, we welcome persons with developmental disabilities, their families and their caregivers to join us as we explore what this means for all of us. We’re not experts; we’re seekers. This journey must be taken with grace. We’re looking for those with a similar heart, and passion to search out what it means to all live in faith together.

Join with us in this part of our journey. Pray for wise decision-making and helpful resources. If you know of grant or gift possibilities, please provide that information. Do you live nearby? Come help us demo the bathrooms once demo days are scheduled. Consider adding your gift to those already collected. We’re approaching 30% of the total $30,000 needed for project completion.

On the Journey of Belonging

Please like and share to help us tell our story - God's story.

network.crcna.org One Sunday morning, Tom stood to sing, then moved to the front, sandwiching himself between two of us. He grinned at me, laid his head on my shoulder, and lifted his microphone to his lips.

[06/27/19]   So, we've posted who we are and what we believe. Here's some info of what we're doing to "walk the talk" as we see God working and seek to follow Him:

We've changed the carpet in our sanctuary which provides easier navigation, and we've reorganized our coffee area to provide quiet spaces with small tables and better traffic patterns. We've leveled the space into the main west door by adding a cement pad remove the 1" bump across the threshold. We're in the process of upgrading our fellowship hall to provide a more welcoming and accessible opportunity for worship around tables.

Right now we’re seeking funding to make our restrooms ADA compliant. So far, we've raised about 20% of the cost.

Next items on our "do-list" include upgrading the east entrance to be ADA compliant, and shortening some sanctuary pews to accommodate those using wheel chairs or walkers. We'd like to build a front ramp through our landscaping, so the main doors are accessible,

Pray for us, share with your FB friends and and consider how you can partner with us on this journey. We'll keep you in the loop on our progress.

[06/25/19]   We believe that we are invited to belong to God’s family; we are called to believe God’s promise met in Jesus; we are being equipped to become like Christ through the Holy Spirit’s power; we are sent to bring Jesus to people everywhere.

We believe that God created us to live in community. Everyone longs to be known, understood, and valued. This means everyone! In all aspects of congregational life we strive to practice the kind of belonging that uses everyone’s strengths, gifts and talents; we each find support and help for our weaknesses. We all serve each other. We grow in faith together through worship, work, play and learning.

We believe that each of us is created in God’s image. God values each of us and invites us, with arms open wide, to continually develop a more vibrant relationship with Him. Therefore, we welcome persons with developmental disabilities, their families and their caregivers to join us as we explore what this means for all of us. We’re not experts; we’re seekers. This journey must be taken with grace. We’re looking for those with a similar heart, and passion to search out what it means to all live in faith together.

1 Corinthians 12:12-20, 27 explains it this way: 12 There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body. It is the same with Christ. 13 We were all baptized by one Holy Spirit. And so we are formed into one body. 15 Suppose the foot says, “I am not a hand. So I don’t belong to the body.” By saying this, it cannot stop being part of the body. 16 And suppose the ear says, “I am not an eye. So I don’t belong to the body.” By saying this, it cannot stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, how could it hear? If the whole body were an ear, how could it smell? 18 God has placed each part in the body just as he wanted it to be. 19 If all the parts were the same, how could there be a body? 20 As it is, there are many parts. But there is only one body. 27 You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it.

Bivocational Chaplain Driven by Kingdom Mindset

https://www.crcna.org/news-and-views/bivocational-chaplain-driven-kingdom-mindset

crcna.org On paper and over the phone, it sounded to Rev. Joe Kamphuis like Chelwood Christian Reformed Church might be the congregation God was calling him to serve. Then, after traveling to and preaching at the church in Albuquerque, N.Mex., something happened that convinced him this was where he needed to?...

[06/03/17]   Afterword:

We have spent the past 12 weeks learning what it means to follow Jesus. We have learned some of who Jesus is, what He has said and done, and a few of the wonderful things He has accomplished on our behalf.

The truth is, you and I have been given everything that is necessary in order to follow Jesus. (see 2 Peter 1:3)

Now, you and I have a choice. Will we believe who we are in Christ, step out in faith, and trust God to do what only He can do, or will we continue to live as we did before; simply trying to get through another day?

The choice is up to you, and the choice is up to me.

Following Jesus is a journey. It is not a simple one-time decision. It is a lifetime of decisions and choices and steps of faith.

Following Jesus is a journey, but it is not one we must take alone. We have the Holy Spirit, we have God’s word, and we have each other. Although this journey is not for the faint of heart, it is a great adventure, and leads to our heavenly home.

To God be the glory! Great things He has done, is doing, and will continue to do! Amen.

[06/02/17]   Week 12 - Day 5 - What does it mean to walk by faith?

Read 2 Corinthians 5:1-10

The last thing to know about walking by faith is that this world is not our home. Our home is in heaven with God for eternity.

Some people believe that this world is temporary, and they believe this is all there is. They live anyway they want, saying things like, “you only live once”. This world is temporary, but it is not all there is. We are looking forward to our home in heaven. Therefore, since this world is temporary, everything we do here has significance.

“So we make it our goal to please Him …” (verse 9)

Our efforts to please God here on earth bear fruit for eternity, as others learn to see, and believe God too.

“Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, … who has given us the Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing what is to come.” (verse 5)

The Holy Spirit is more than just our guide along the Way, and more than simply the One who shapes us to become more like Jesus. The Holy Spirit is also a deposit; God’s down-payment, who guarantees what is to come.

What will it look like for you to “walk by faith” today?

Prayer: Lord, I know that my home is in heaven with You.
Help me to make it my goal to please you. Amen.

[06/01/17]   Week 12 - Day 4 - What does it mean to walk by faith?

Read Romans 6:1-14

Walking by faith means believing two things about who we are in Christ. First, we are set free; we are no longer slaves to sin. Second, we are free to obey God and to do what is right.

“… that we should no longer be slaves to sin.” (verse 6)

One of the most difficult things for humans like us to believe is that we no longer have to do what we desire. Sin is disobedience; i.e. following our desires, rather than God’s commands. Yet in Christ we are no longer to slaves to sin.
We do not have to follow our desires, now we can choose to follow God’s commands.

And that leads into the second thing we must believe about who we are in Christ: we are free to obey God.

“but rather offer yourselves to God … and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.” (v. 13)

Through faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit lives in us. The Holy Spirit now directs our desires, our behaviors, and our will so that we delight in doing what God wants, rather than only what we want. This is what it means to walk by faith.

From which sin(s) do you need to believe that you are free?

Prayer: Lord, thank You for setting me free. Holy Spirit lead me in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Amen.

[05/31/17]   Week 12 - Day 3 - What does it mean to walk by faith?

Read Romans 4:1-25

“… being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised.” (verse 21)

In these verses, Paul (the author of Romans) makes the case that righteousness that comes through faith, rather than righteousness that comes through keeping the law (a popular Jewish belief), is in line with Abraham’s faith.
Remember that faith is not about us; it’s about God. Faith is trusting God to do what only God can do, and that is what Abraham did.

Paul refers back to Genesis 15:6, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” (verse 3) Paul then applies this truth to our faith in Jesus. Jesus offers the gift of His righteousness to anyone who receives it by faith.
Therefore, Paul says, “So then, he (Abraham) is the father of all who believe … in order that righteousness might be credited to them.” (verse 11)

Abraham defines what it means to walk by faith. He believed God’s promise, and God credited it to him as righteousness. In the same way, we who believe God’s promise fulfilled in Jesus are credited with righteousness, and are welcomed as children into God’s family.

What is God calling you to do with the gift of righteousness?

Prayer: Father, thank You for crediting me with Jesus’ right-eousness. Help me to live every moment for you. Amen.

[05/30/17]   Week 12 - Day 2 - What does it mean to walk by faith?

Read Genesis 12:1-4; Genesis 15:1-6; Hebrews 11:8-12

Abraham was a man of faith. He received promises from God, and over time he learned to walk (live) by faith.

God called Abram (later renamed Abraham) to leave his country, his people, and his father’s household and go to a new land. God promised to bless Abram; “So Abram went”.

Yet Abram’s faith journey was not easy. God made promises, but Abram had to wait more than 20 years to see even the beginning of the promise of a son.

In chapter 15, Abram is growing impatient. God has given him land, but he wants a son to be his heir. So Abram brings his complaint to God. Notice that God does not get angry at Abram, instead he restates the promise.

Then come the words that define what it means to walk (live) by faith. “Abram believed the LORD, and He credited it to him as righteousness.” (Genesis 15:6)

In time, Abraham saw God fulfill His promise. Abraham was given a son, named Isaac, who became Abraham’s chosen heir and eventually became a great people; the people of Israel.

What promise are you waiting for God to fulfill?

Prayer: God, I know You keep Your promises. Help me to learn faith like Abraham; to trust You no matter what. Amen.

[05/29/17]   Week 12 - Day 1 - What does it mean to walk by faith?

Read Hebrews 11:1-12:3

Faith is always about God, the One in whom we place our faith, rather than about us. Without God our faith is powerless. Only God is able to do amazing things, and by His design we receive God’s amazing gifts by faith.

There are many persons listed here from stories that are found throughout the Jewish scriptures. Their faith in God enabled them to live (walk) by faith in their time and in their particular circumstances.

Walking by faith is a journey. It does not happen in one moment, but rather in many moments every day. It means choosing to trust God and do things His way, even when we can’t see how it will all turn out. The persons listed here were commended for their faith. They made many small choices each day, which became their journey of faith.

Now, it’s our turn. In 12:1 we read, “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us …” Each one of us is on a journey. God has marked out a race for us as individuals and as a family. We are in this together, and as we fix our eyes on Jesus, we will learn what it means to walk by faith.

Which story of faith most resonates with you?

Prayer: Lord, You are faithful. Help me to trust You; to walk by faith in everything I say and do. Amen.

[05/26/17]   Week 11 - Day 5 - “How can I begin to follow Jesus?”

Read Acts 16:16-34

Today’s reading is a story; an account of the events that led to one man’s salvation and the beginning of his lifelong journey to follow Jesus.

Paul and Silas are being followed by a future-predicting slave girl. She announces, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved!”

Following some events Paul and Silas end up in jail.
The jailer is told “to guard them carefully”. Yet in the middle of the night, as they are singing and praying, the chains come loose, the doors fly open, still the prisoners remain.

Eventually, the jailer wakes up, and draws his sword in hopes to kill himself. Paul stops him, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The man puts away his sword and asks, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Paul tells him, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”

The man believes and is saved, but this is not just a one time event. This is the beginning of his lifelong journey to learn what it means to follow Jesus in every decision he makes, every day.

What does it mean to you to be saved?

Prayer: Lord, thank You for saving me. May every decision I make show that I am one of Your followers. Amen.

[05/25/17]   Week 11 - Day 4 - “How can I begin to follow Jesus?”

Read Romans 10:5-13

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
(verse 13)

The process outlined in today’s reading makes clear that Jesus is the Lord, and all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Jesus testified to His Lordship when He rose from the dead. His resurrection points to His greatness because Almighty God raised Him from the dead.

So following Jesus also means that we acknowledge with our mouths that Jesus is Lord; believing in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead. (see verse 9) This is the righteousness that comes by faith.

Jesus’s Lordship speaks to His God-given authority over all heaven and earth (see Matthew 28:18), as well as His uniqueness as the only One who can save those who call on His name.

What is the difference between the righteousness that is by the law, and the righteousness that is by faith?

Who do you know who needs to call on the Lord? How can you pray for him/her?

Prayer: Lord, I thank You for saving me. Please help ___________ call on Your name for salvation. Amen.
