Any questions, speak to Albert Kok or Elza Folkerts. Fire Drill: Following today’s service we will have a fire drill. All public gathering places are now mandated by the fire department to hold a fire drill. The purpose of a fire drill is to ensure that everyone is familiar with emergency evacuation procedures, resulting in an orderly evacuation, and to ensure that in case of a real fire the evacuation procedures will be followed smoothly. Please take some time this week to review the fire evacuation procedures that were emailed to you along with the bulletin. Ushers, Nursery attendants and Joy Jam leaders, in particular are asked to take note of these instructions so you are aware of what actions to take when the fire alarm is pulled. Calling all seamstresses: Our Joy Jam Jr. ministry would like to provide some Bible character costumes for our younger children so that they can "dress the part" of the Bible characters that they are learning about each Sunday morning. If you have old material that is not being used or are willing to pull out your sewing machine and create some fun dress‑up clothes for this ministry, please contact Stacy Kok. Thanks.
