Change of Date for Fall Meeting of Classis West

The Classical Committee of Classis, with the previous approval of Classis West, has rescheduled the regular meeting of Classis West from September 4 to October 9 in order to avoid having two Classis meetings this Fall. This will allow time for CandidateErik  Guichelaar to consider and answer his calls and then prepare to be examined by Classis West, Lord willing.

Synod Report for Friday, June 14

RSmitaddress-Synod2013Friday, June 14, 2013: The last day of synod was another day of giving thanks to God for His great goodness.  The morning devotions began with Psalm 145, a Psalm of praise to God.  Every session of synod begins with prayer.  The many heartfelt prayers of the delegates focused on giving thanks to God for His undeserved goodness. 

            When synod made decisions regarding the work in the Philippines, Rev. Smit, one of our missionaries in the Philippines, addressed synod.  He expressed the gratitude of the missionaries to the churches for their interest in and support of Christ’s work in the Philippines.  Rev. Smit also brought the greetings of the churches with whom they work in the Philippines by reading a letter of greeting from the combined consistories of the Berean PRC and the First Reformed Church of Bulacan.  Rev. Van Overloop expressed words of thanks for the dedicated labors of Rev. Smit, Rev. Kleyn, and their families, on behalf of our churches.

Synod Report for Thursday, June 13

Guichelaars wErikCherithThursday, June 13, 2013:  Today was a day of continued gratitude to God.  Mr. Erik Guichelaar  successfully sustained his examination before synod.  He was examined in Church History, Church Polity, OT History, NT History, and Practica.  With thanks to God, synod approved his examination and declared Mr. Guichelaar a candidate of the ministry of the Word and Sacraments eligible for call on or after July 13, 2013. As churches we have many reasons to give thanks – for the truth of God’s Word, the gifts God has given to this young man who confessed the truth so beautifully, and a seminary which faithfully teaches these truths so the church receives the truth each Sunday.
