Missions of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America

Our Newest PRC Congregation - Pittsburgh PRC - June 24, 2016 (Updated)

Update: The Pittsburgh PRC formed a trio of Revs. W. Bruinsma, C. Griess (Calvary PRC, Hull, IA), and R. Kleyn (Covenant of Grace, Spokane, WA) to call its first minister.  They will extend a call on July 10, D.V.

It may also be noted the new congregation adopted the official name of Pittsburgh Protestant Reformed Church.

On Friday evening, June 24, 2016, the Pittsburgh PR Fellowship was organized as a PR congregation, under the supervision of the SW PRC, which had been the calling church for this mission. Many visitors were in attendance, including members of the Domestic Mission Committee.

Below is a note Missionary-pastor W. Bruinsma sent out afterward:

Last night, July 24 the Pittsburgh Protestant Reformed Church was instituted as a congregation in the Protestant Reformed Churches. Keith Bauman and Peter Cnossen were chosen as elders and Anthony Bauman as deacon. We rejoice together with this small body of believers and ask God's continued care as they stand on their own in years to come. The church here greatly appreciates all the prayers and support given in the past years on their behalf. Please continue to pray for them as they begin their labors and witness as a church of Jesus Christ.

We rejoice with this latest "sister" in our PRC federation, and pray God's richest blessings on her as she shines as Christ's light in that city.
