a message from the Van der bijl’s

Thank You.

“Dear Mother Jean, Greg, and Donna:

JOHANN AND LOUISE VAN der BIJL
Johann and Louise Van der Bijl

Just a short note to thank you all for your partnership in the Gospel. We are truly grateful for your support and commitment as without you all we would not be able to do what we do!

The Netherlands is such an interesting country. Extremely secular, but many of the folks we talk to are genuinely interested in hearing the truth. Some are amazed that we actually believe what to them is akin to fantasy, but they listen and some even come to our services or special events.

Please do pray that it will grow into something deeper than just an interest.

We pray that you will all be blessed this Christmas and that our gracious Lord will pour out abundant blessings on you and yours throughout the coming year.

Love and blessings, 

Johann and Louise”

This month, Church of the Messiah supported Beaver Cross Ministries

Beaver Cross Ministries, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany, is dedicated to offering youth from all walks of life opportunities to encounter the Lord Jesus Christ in a real way through both Summer Camp ​and year-round Youth Ministry!

Located in Greenwich, NY Beaver Cross Ministries is a year round youth ministry program.
