March 21 Consistory Letter:
Congregation, due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus we will be broadcasting our services through Mixlr and over the phone. You can access Mixlr either through our website (nrcsf.com) or directly on the Mixlr website, searching for nrcsf. If you want to listen over the telephone please contact us by calling or texting (231-942-1389) with how you want to be reached, and we will contact you shortly before the service starts. Please stay in contact with us and let us know if you have any difficulty in listening and we will be glad to help you.
While we are thankful for the opportunity to broadcast our services, it is not the same as gathering together in corporate worship which we should not forsake under normal circumstances (Hebrews 10:25). May our hearts long with the psalmist of Psalm 63 "O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary." May we take to heart God's clear calling to examine ourselves, be found out by His Word and Spirit, say with Judah "What shall we say unto my Lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my Lord's servants," and repent from our sins.
As we continue through these times, it is our desire to bind together as a church family and support each other as needs arise. If you are experiencing financial hardship due to decrease or loss of income during this time of uncertainty, we encourage you to reach out to your deacon. May we continually look to the Lord and His faithful promise to supply our daily needs.
Anyone who would like to continue giving may send their offerings to Deacon Norm deWit, 25411 485th Ave., Garretson, SD 57030
We are considering continuing the adult class on the Westminster confession via a platform similar to Zoom Meeting. If this is of interest to you, please let us know when it would work for you the best.
May we all daily make this a matter of prayer, for those infected, the health care workers, our leaders of local and national rank, for wisdom, and above all that we would entreat the Lord, "Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?" Joel 2:12-14

Below you will find a list of names who currently can use some meal or other assistance (as noted on their calendar). When you schedule to bring a meal, ask the recipient if they would like you to stay and eat or visit with them. While the main purpose is to deliver meals they may also wish to have some company as well. When you click on the name below it will bring you to a separate website where this is coordinated. The first time you choose to help someone you will have to request a code, please keep this for further use. Each person will have a different code.
If you are in need of meals, visits, or other matters we can help with please click here to contact us.
