Summer Choir Needs You! The choir serves as the worship team once a month. During the summer months, this is an open choir and anyone with a desire to sing may join us at 9:00 a.m. before worship to practice and learn the music to be used in the morning service. Come join us at 9:00 a.m. next Sunday, July 22 to rehearse an anthem and worship songs, and then participate in the service.

Hospitality Dinners with Dan & Grace Claus If you haven't done so already, come sign up for a hospitality dinner designed to help us get to know Pastor Dan and his family better. Please sign up at the Welcome Center after the service, because spots are limited. Remember—please list each member of your family attending on individual lines of the fill-in sheet. Also, try to limit yourself to one dinner each.

Shoreline Christian Reformed Church is a gospel and grace-centered

community learning how to follow Jesus. We belong to a broader community called The Christian Reformed Church. What does this mean? We call ourselves… Christian… Because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be His followers.



Because we’re part of the historic branch of the Christian church that follows the teachings of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation, who struggled to return Christianity to its Biblical roots. Because God has called us to be a fellowship of His people in the world.
