Living In God's Story Series
As we move through our lives, we often have questions about God. Where is this all heading? What is God up to? Where do I fit in? What’s my place in all of this? As we begin a new year, we are excited to remind ourselves how big the story of God is, and how that story can answer some of those big and difficult questions we have. Let’s look together at God’s story as it’s been unveiled in the Bible and how we play a part in that story.
Join us for worship at 10AM!
Message: "The God Who Redeems"• Pastor Harold Veldman • Galatians 3:23-4:7
This week, Pastor Harold Veldman will dive into Galatians 3-4 and explore Jesus as a redeemer, how he has redeemed, and what that redemption means in our life. Join us this Sunday at Evergreen or on Zoom at 10am!
We are thankful that we have been able to worship both in-person and virtually for the past few months. We remain committed to maintaining a healthy space where we can continue to worship together. We will continue to host services in-person for those of you who prefer the in-person worship experience, but will also maintain our Sunday morning Zoom feed for those of you who are unable to be with us in the building. Whichever way you choose to be with us, we are grateful for your participation! Join us on Sundays at 10am!
We are using the same link each week: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86799658645
Can't make church at 10AM?
Welcome to our guided worship collection. In these links, you will find songs, scripture, and a message from current weeks, and also weeks past. All of this content will be matched up with the worship that we will be doing together on Sunday mornings. We understand that gathering together at a certain time, whether that be in person or on Zoom, isn't always realistic for everyone, but we also believe in the importance of participating in worship regularly and consistently. We hope that this provides a space for you to worship God regularly and consistently in the times we can't be gathered together. If you would like to hear recordings of previous sermons, go to www.egm.org/egm-sermons.

Giving at Evergreen
Evergreen continues to work diligently to serve our people, our students, our children, and our community despite difficult circumstances. Like many businesses, families, and organizations, the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus put churches in a difficult financial situation. If you would like to give financially in the weeks in which we are unable to gather, you can do so by clicking this button:
4 Corners Offering
This series, our corners offering is for the ARC Project. The ARC Project is an organization with chapters in Holland, MI and Jacksonville, Florida that cares for students from the inner-city by bringing them to the beach, teaching them surfing, water-safety, and sharing the promises of Jesus with them! We are so grateful for the work The Arc Project does in our community!
The IF Gathering is returning to Hudsonville this March. Although it will look a little different this year, we remain excited about the ways God will work through the IF Gathering. If you would like to get involved in helping host a virtual gathering for the event on March 5-6, we would love for you to email firstname.lastname@example.org!

Evergreen Small Groups
We all walk through life yearning to be known, valued, and loved. By spending time with people who are willing to get to know us deeply and purposefully, we allow those relationships to create radical growth and change in our faith. Evergreen has several small group opportunities to explore this fall! If you are interested in any of these in-person or online communities, click the link below.
