#thisiscrcworship: We need your photos and videos! Over the next few months, we are working on several short videos highlighting the many ways CRC churches worship. We would love to have all churches represented either with a photo or a short (several seconds long) video. Do you have images of your congregation worshiping, praying or participating in sacraments? Email them to us (  

Prayer Requests: As we worship together, we are united with God and with one another. Over the next year, we’ll include a few short prayer requests. Email us if there’s something you would like included or would like us to pray for specifically in our Monday staff meetings. Please join your heart and your voices as we pray for these things together.  

  • Pray for the annual gathering of Synod this June. Pray for unity in our churches, for wisdom for delegates and for the Holy Spirit’s presence in the conversations and the decisions.

Sermon and Service Packages

These packages will be available for preview by the beginning of May. Calvin CRC in Grand Rapids, MI and The Tapestry Church in Vancouver will both put together services that we hope are widely used by churches to not only offer a Sunday off, but also to be unified as a denomination in our hearing of the Word and worship in conjunction with the CRC’s annual gathering of Synod (June 11-17).
