Welcome to Greene Road Church
A place of friendship and faith!
To realize that God knows us completely can be unnerving. But it can also be absolutely comforting when you trust Him with your life. Today we will celebrate Communion.
Jehovah Yada: The Lord Who Knows Me
We pray for those who struggle with the cold weather.
We pray for those who are weary and worn out.
We pray for wisdom for our leaders.

Have you been heard? Our congregation has a once-in-five-year opportunity to participate in the 2021 CRC denominational survey. This survey helps denominational leadership understand the concerns and needs of local congregations like ours. It is crucial that as many people from our congregation as possible participate. Please visit crcna.org/survey/5735 to answer the survey questions by March 31.
The Reaching Team encourages you to think of someone who needs the good news of Jesus. Pray for that person every day until Easter. Then invite them to our Easter service on April 4. Let’s see what God can do through prayer!
Growing Faith at Home: Play a guessing game together. Write down your favorite color, food, music, sports team, and Bible passage. Guess what the other family members wrote down. See who gets the most correct answers. Talk together about how well God knows us. Read Psalm 139 together and talk about what it means. Thank God for His wonderful knowledge of us.
Dominican Republic Mission Trip: Are you interested in serving at Freedom International in the Dominican Republic? We would like to know. The dates are June 19-26, 2021. Please talk to Pastor Dave or sign up at the Welcome Center.
Giving: Thank you for your faithful and generous giving. Gifts can be placed in the offering box, or mailed in. We also have an online option giving option through our website.
Last week, as we searched for a “grace” text, we found that God gives grace to the humble. Once again, that was George for sure! This week we’ll return to looking for a text about being “blessed”. Let’s turn to Psalm 112, verse 1. What is mentioned about being blessed in this Psalm?
