From the Deacons- Offerings:

   April 1: Budget and Mission Support-Please remember to give

    the people who do not know about Jesus.
   April 6: Bible League- Please support the Bible League as they
    distribute bibles to many people. Also as they translate the bible into
    different languages.

    May they reach out and bring them to Jesus.

           Church Family: As Easter approaches let us prepare our hearts and minds
           for the death and resurrection of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

               As spring is upon us we begin to see God's handiwork around us, and
                we look to God for a good growing season and we put our trust in
                him that he will provide.

               Be with our members who continue to suffer from pain and sickness.
                Continue to be with Tony and Florence Vegter and grant them
                strength. Give healing and patience to those who have had accidents
                or those who have underwent surgery.

               Console those who have lost loved ones recently, as well as those who
                continue to grieve from losses long ago. Surround them with your

    Be with our church and its various programs and please pray for a
     VBS coordinator to lead this important program.

    Be with church council as they go through the task of appointing new
     office bearers, give them wisdom. Bless the work of the search
     committee and continue to give them strength and perseverance as
     they fulfill their work.

    Please keep Doug Reurink and family in your prayers.

Iron Springs Church Announcements:

   Young Peoples: Young Peoples: Meeting at Ashley and Landen's
    tonight at 8:10pm. Remember to bring your
    COMPLETED registration forms! Dani, Kaitlyn and Tilly have snack
    tonight. Next week we will meet for core group. On Thursday, April
    12 we will be cleaning up the parsonage starting at 9am. Bring yard
    cleaning supplies (rakes, shovels, gloves...)! On Sunday, April 15, we
    will be helping set up and clean up the Meet & Greet lunch with the
    visiting pastor after church. Sunday April 15 in the evening we will
    be having a gym night against the Young Adults, where we can meet
    the visiting pastor as well. See you tonight!

   Young Adults: If you are out of high school, come out and meet the
    visiting pastor Sunday April 15 in the evening. We will be meeting at
    a local gym (TBA) with the young peoples, where we can hang
    out and meet the visiting pastor. More details to follow! See you

   Youth Group: We will be helping the building committee clean the
    yard at the parsonage on Thursday, April 12 starting at 9:00 am. If you
    are able to come, bring work gloves, rakes, muscles and a smile.
    Lunch will be provided for the day. (If any parents would like to come
    also that would be great!!)

   Catechism: This past year the Sunday School and Catechism Classes
    collected money for gifts through CRWRC coming from their gift
    catalogue. A total of $713.45 was collected from the Catechism
    classes & each class collected individually per grade. The grade 11's
    came way out on top. Although, for the size of the grade 7 class - they
   did awesome. I'm going break down what each class collected for:
   Grade 7's collected enough to give 2 goats, 15 chickens and 16 fruit
   trees. Grade 10's collected enough to give 50 chickens, 36 fruit trees,
   a 5kg bag of maize seed, 2 water filters and 3 literacy books. Grade
   11's collected enough to give a Water unit for Disaster Survivors and
   24 chickens. Grade 12's collected enough to give 1 calf, 3 literacy
   books, mosquito nets and 11 chickens.
   So thank-you for your giving - these will make a difference in many
   lives. Thanks again to the teachers!!

 Building Committee: Painting the parsonage is delayed about a week
  or so. We are still looking for painters for this large project and your
  support is appreciated. Contact Evelyn at 732-5379 if you have any
  questions and/or to offer your services. Thanks.

 VBS - We are looking for a new coordinator to plan the VBS program
  for this summer. We know this is a huge task and we do have people
  willing to be helpers to whoever is the coordinator. Please talk to
  Esther (732-4411) or any other member of the evangelism committee
  if you are interested.

 Search Committee: Pastor Speelman and his wife Wendy will be
  joining us April 12-15 to get to know us and the area better. There will
  be an opportunity for the whole congregation to meet the two of them.
  On Sunday we will have the privilege of hearing Pastor Speelman
  preach and have a meet and greet after the service with lunch. If you
  have any questions or concerns please talk to anyone on the search

 Fellowship Committee: BOWLING, BOWLING, BOWLING:
  Fun, friends, fellowship and bowling! Come out to Holiday Bowl
  April 28th from 4-6pm. The cost is five dollars per game per person;
  please bring cash to make the paying process run smoothly. Can’t wait
  to see you and your family there! Church Potluck: Sunday, April 15th
  please join us for a time of fellowship as we visit with Pastor
  Speelman and Wendy. We will be having a POTLUCK dinner after
  the morning service in the fellowship hall. If your last name begins
  with the letters A-S please bring a main dish, letters T-Z please bring
  a dessert.

 Immanuel Christian School (Local Meeting): We will be having a
  local school meeting on Tuesday April 3rd at 8:00 pm here in the

 VIDEO OVERFLOW: The sound and video committee have a
  special account that you may donate to for setting up a video and
  sound system in the hall for future overflow events such as funerals
  etc. This is very hard to set up in short notice as we need projection,
  good quality camera, cables and sound which for the most part are not
  rentable items. It will be nice to be able to also record events
  such as funerals, weddings, special occasions etc. The sound and
  projection system will come in handy for congregational meetings,
  seminars and workshops down the road. Having the system in the hall
  may also make the hall rentable to the community or businesses that
  want to host a workshop, seminar etc. Having the ability to show a
  Power Point presentation during anniversaries or receptions may
  also be convenient. Total cost of something like this is around
  $6500.00 but the benefits of having this available will be well worth
  it. Please consider how this may be a benefit to you. Please note on
  the cheque what the money is for. Thank – you

 From Council: At the last council meeting it was decided that the
  Sunday PM Service will be kept at 3:00 until further notice. If
  members of the congregation would like to read the minutes of the last
  Classis meeting, there are copies on the table in the foyer.

 Congregational Meeting of March 19, 2012. About 60 people were
  in attendance. John welcomed everyone and opened with devotions
  reading from Romans 12 and singing Beautiful Savior. The agenda
  was adopted with one amendment. John encouraged everyone to fill
  out nomination forms. Minutes of the December 12th congregational
  meeting were read. Clerks report was given for the year 2011. Peter
  gave a report on the 2011 budget year. He is glad his rookie year is
  done. Peter encouraged members of the congregation to give on a
  monthly basis instead of waiting till the end of the year. John thanked
  Peter for his work. Art Dronkelaar and Chris Schuld on behalf of the
  search committee, gave a report on a potential pastor who will be
  coming on the weekend of April 13th. Pastor Speelman and his wife
  Wendy will have an interactive weekend with the congregation. Chris
  gave a short report on Pastor Speelman. Questions were then taken

      from the audience and discussion was had. John thanked the search
      committee for their work. At this time reports were given from church
      groups and committees. There were no questions for question period
      so meeting was adjourned. Art closed in prayer.
