The PRC Seminary graduates are introduced by Prof. B. Gritters, rector of the seminary.
After a wonderful seminary commencement program Thursday night in First PRC (Grand Rapids, MI), (see pics above)
the PRC Synod 2019 returned to its regular business at 8 am Friday morning.
Much of the work was based on the report of Committee 3 dealing with the protests concerning Psalter revision and Contact Committee work.
That included addresses from the three foreign men representing our sister churches:
Rev. John Flores from the PRC in the Philippines
Deacon Lee Meng Hsien from Covenant ERC, Singapore
and Rev. M. McGeown representing Covenant PRC, N. Ireland (he is her missionary-pastor in Limerick, Ireland)
*The summary report on today's decisions has now been attached to this news post. Included in that are these words:
Delegates from our sister churches were given an opportunity to address synod on behalf of their churches. Deacon Lee Meng Hsien spoke on behalf of the CERCS, Rev. McGeown spoke on behalf of Covenant PRC in Northern Ireland. and Rev. John Flores spoke on behalf of the PRC in the Philippines. These delegates spoke of the work that God was doing in their churches and expressed thanks to God for our sister church relationship. The chairman of synod responded by express to these delegates our thanks to God for them and for the fellowship that we have them.
Synod expressed to the PRCP and CERCS that the PRCA has no objections to their entering into a sister-church relationship with each other, and expressed to our sister churches our joy and our thankfulness to God for opening the way for this manifestation of the unity and catholicity of the church and our prayer for God’s richest blessings upon this relationship.
Synod plans to reconvene at 10 am Monday morning.
