Where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
We are growing in relationship with God, each other, and our community every day of our lives. On Sunday mornings we gather for worship at 9:30am, followed by a time of fellowship and refreshments. Our Sunday evening service at 6:00pm is less formal, a time for song, discussion, fellowship, learning, and prayer. Our ministry extends throughout the week and throughout our community—meals on Mondays, markets on Tuesdays, fires on Fridays, and so many other opportunities to grow!
Manna Monday Dinners
Dinner Served at 6:00pm
Manna Monday Dinners take place every other Monday from September through April.
On these bi-weekly evenings, our congregation gathers to enjoy the fellowship of a shared meal, prepared by volunteers, and served buffet-style.
After dinner, we split up into age-appropriate ministries: GEMS and Cadets for girls and boys, and a variety of adult Bible studies and small groups.
7:00 – 8:30pm
Men’s Life is a men’s-only Bible study that meets after Manna Monday dinners. This is a time for in-depth study of the Word, honest questioning, and open discussion among brothers in Christ.
Women’s Fellowship is a woman’s-only gathering that meets after Manna Monday dinners. Each season a Bible study is selected to read and discuss together throughout the winter months.
Cadets & Gems
7:00 – 8:30pm
CADETS is a boys-only program, short for The Calvinist Cadet Corps, established in 1952. Similar to The Boy Scouts of America, but with a Christian foundation, Cadets is an opportunity for young men to grow together, learn valuable skills, receive mentorship, and have fun.
GEMS – Girls. Everywhere. Meeting. the Savior.
A girls-only program that was established in 1957, originally called Calvinettes, but renamed in GEMS in 1995. The club offers an opportunity for young women to study the Bible, make new friends, and participate in fun crafts and group activities, all while learning what it means to live in faith.
New Era Farmers Market
Jun-Aug | 2nd & 4th Tues | 4-7pm
The New Era Farmers Market is a seasonal, biweekly event hosted by New Era Christian Reformed Church. The Market was established in 2015 as an outreach ministry to serve the community with food access and to meet nutritional needs.
Local vendors offer fresh produce, flowers, crafts, cat and dog treats, jewelry and organic herbs and spices in the church parking lot, while food trucks provide visitors with dinner.
Live entertainment performs on the outdoor stage from 5-7pm – a variety of family-friendly bands playing Bluegrass, Blues, Jazz and Americana.
The Market accepts several programs to help supplement people’s grocery budgets, including: SNAP/EBT, Double UP Food Bucks, Senior Market Fresh, WIC Project Fresh, and our own Kids Power of Produce Club and Senior Power of Produce Program.
The Senior Power of Produce Program issues $4 in tokens for free produce for those 62 years and older.
The Kids Power of Produce Club meets from 4-5pm at each market, offering fun activities, prizes, and tokens for free produce.
The Market depends on the support of New Era Christian Reformed Church, grants, business and community donations to operate. It is run by volunteers.
