This will be general labor—most of the work will involve the changing out of suspended ceiling tiles and helping remove/install light fixtures in that ceiling. More details will be forthcoming as planning progresses. Please contact Clarence Deelstra to request more information or to sign up!

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.
