Our pastorate is currently vacant and we are being led weekly by guest pastors as we search out the man God has in store for us. We welcome you to join us in worship every Sunday morning at 9:30 am and Sunday evening at 6:00 pm as we worship together.
Jodi De Berg
My name is Jodi De Berg. I grew up and made profession of faith while attending Sully CRC. I am so thankful for the many years I was able to grow in my faith while attending Sully CRC before leaving for Dordt College. After graduating from Dordt College in 2000, I married John De Berg and we started our family in Sioux Falls, SD. We attended Sioux Falls Christian Reformed Church and were active in many ways within the church. In 2012, John and I moved to Parkersburg, Iowa where we attended Parkersburg CRC. In 2019 we moved to Pella, IA, and transferred our membership to Sully CRC where we have grown to love our church family. I love being the worship coordinator and working with so many great people within our church. I started in September of 2020. John and I have three kids, Abbie, Tyler, and Trevor, with who we love spending time. Outside of working our time revolves around our kids and their activities.
Glenda Vander Leest
I grew up in the Christian Reformed Church having been a baptized member of First Christian Reformed Church of Pella. When Dwight and I married and moved to Sully, we joined the Sully Christian Reformed Church. This church has been the center of our lives since that time.
I have been the secretary here for 25 years, and cherish the opportunity it has provided to know many on a deeper level and to serve the church.
I enjoy spending time with our four children and thirteen grandchildren, having coffee with friends, and I love reading and gardening. I and my husband are involved in prison ministry by way of correspondence with inmates in the Newton Correctional Facility and are eager for the time when we can again go into the prison.
Randy and Karen Altena
Randy and Karen Altena are lifetime members of the Christian Reformed Church. They were born in Sioux County in Northwest Iowa. They were married in 1976 and raised their four children, Keith, Melissa, Eric, and Loren on a dairy farm in Ireton, IA. In 2001 they sold their farm and moved with their two youngest sons to Washington state. In 2020 they decided to move back to the Midwest to be closer to family. Iowa was their choice and having a son living in Newton helped them make their choice. Randy and Karen joined the Sully CRC in 2021. They have a cleaning business where they enjoy working together. When the position for custodian opened they were the perfect fit and are now serving in that capacity. Randy and Karen love the Lord and love to share the Good News of Jesus with those who are searching. They find satisfaction in being the instruments that God can use to bring others to Him.
