Two Calls (Doon and Faith), Two Declines

On Sunday November 17, 2013 Revs.G. Eriks (Hudsonville PRC) and W.Langerak (SE PRC, Grand Rapids) announced that they had declined their calls - Rev.Eriks to Faith PRC (Jenison, MI) and Rev.Langerak to Doon PRC (Doon, IA). 

May the Lord of the church continue to provide for these congregations in their vacancies and give contentment in His will for them at this time. And may He continue to bless the ministries of these pastors in their current congregations.

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." Psalm 23:1

Reformed Witness Hour Rally to be Rescheduled

 

 

RWHmasthead

 

 

SPECIAL NOTICE! Due to the tornado watch in the West Michigan area on Sunday evening (Nov.17) the RWH Rally had to be cancelled! First PRC had to cancel their evening service and therefore the RWH Rally too had to be cancelled. We do plan to reschedule this event in the near future. Below is the advertisement for the event as it had been prepared.

 

It's time for another Reformed Witness Hour Rally, a one-hour program to promote interest in, understanding of and support for our denomination's weekly radio and internet broadcast.

Have you forgotten the powerful ways in which the Lord is using our radio/internet ministry? Are you simply interested in learning more about this special kingdom labor? Perhaps you have a desire to serve on the RWH Committee (We are always looking for new people to serve - women and men!). Then come out and join us for an informative and inspirational night!

When? Sunday, November 17 at 8:15 p.m. at First PRC, Grand Rapids.

WBruinsma-2What? One of our radio pastors, Rev. W. Bruinsma, PRC missionary-pastor serving in Pittsburgh, PA, will speak (He is currently speaking on our program.). The women's group "With One Voice" plans to sing. The RWH Committee will give a Powerpoint presentation on the history and work of the RWH. And there will be a display of current and past RWH items for your viewing, staffed by RWHC members who can answer any questions you might have.

First PRC is moving their evening service to 6 p.m. to accommodate those who wish to attend both the service and the special rally program. At this service Rev.Bruinsma will be preaching. First PRC and the RWH Committee hope to see you there! Refreshments and fellowship will follow!

Missionaries, Church Members Safe After Huge Typhoon Hits the Philippines

One of the major stories in the news in the last week has been the "super" typhoon (named "Haiyan") which hit the central portion of the Philippines. With the death-toll rising and wide-spread damage reported, our concern is obviously for our own missionaries, church members, and mission station members scattered in various places there, including near the area most strongly hit.

Missionary-pastor D.Kleyn has informed us that he and his wife, the Smits and their family, as well as all the members of the churches and missions stations they serve are safe. Manila was not hit as hard as expected but the island of Leyte (where we have a mission station) was. Rev.Kleyn reports that though there was significant damage to PR fellowship members' homes in Leyte, all lives were spared, for which they are very thankful.

Let us remember to pray for our missionaries and fellow saints in that part of the world, especially now as they deal with the aftermath of this powerful storm.

Doon PRC Consistory added this note:

This past week the Lord sent a powerful and destructive typhoon through the central Philippines.  The typhoon did not affect Manila, so that our missionaries and their families and all the churches and contacts in Manila are doing fine.  To the best of our knowledge, this is also true of our contacts in the central Philippines and that the Lord was pleased to spare their lives. We thank God for His protection and care.  We pray He may continue to watch over our fellow saints in the Philippines.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Psalm 46:1-3

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. Psalm 56:3,10

UPDATE: 

The consistory of the First Reformed Church of Bulacan has informed our missionaries in the Philippines that eleven families from the Protestant Reformed Fellowship in Albuera, Leyte had their homes and possessions almost completely destroyed, along with their building for worship by the recent typhoon.  The FRCB consistory will be investigating the benevolent needs as soon as possible though travel to the affected area remains very difficult.  At this time added assistance from our PRCA diaconates is not needed.   Continue to remember the affected saints there, as well as the consistory of the FRCB as they seek to provide the necessary assistance and God's Word of comfort.
