QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
A prayer of John Calvin: "We bow ourselves before the majesty of our good God, in recognition of our faults, praying that he may make us so to feel them that it may draw us to true repentance, so that we may not seek anything except to serve and honour him in his Son our Lord Jesus Christ. May he be pleased to bear with our weaknesses and pardon us for the many vices which still remain, until he has completely purged us of them. May he continue this grace until at last he may receive us to himself and bring us fully to that heavenly place. Amen." (John Calvin: Writings on Pastoral Piety, p. 126.)
Seminary Graduation: The graduation ceremonies for Mr. Erik Guichelaar will take place, God willing, on Thursday evening, June 13, at 7:30 PM, at Hudsonville PRC.

Please join the faculty, Theological School Committee, the 2013 Synodical delegates, and friends and family of Mr. Guichelaar in celebrating this important event in the churches!
