The Evangelism Committee of Randolph PRC (WI) is hosting a lecture this Friday, October 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the church. Dr. Nate Lanning, a cancer biologist at the Van Andel Research Institute in Grand Rapids, MI, will be speaking on "Understanding Evolution from the Reformed Perspective". Dr.Lanning will show that being a dedicated Christian scientist does not mean caving in to the pressures of modern evolutionism, but that one can and must maintain a faithful Biblical stand while working in the sciences today. All in the area are cordially invited to attend this timely lecture on a vitally important subject.
On Sunday, August 25, 2013, Candidate Erik Guichelaar announced that he was led to accept the call from Randolph (WI) PRC to enter the ministry of the Word and sacraments and become their next pastor. This also meant that he declined the call from Doon (IA) PRC. The plan is for him to be examined at the meeting of Classis West, now to be held Wednesday, October 9, in Loveland, CO, with his ordination and installation to follow shortly thereafter, D.V. We rejoice with Erik and Cherith, and pray that God continues to bless their preparations for the gospel ministry in our churches.
UPDATE from Randolph's Council: "Having accepted our call to serve as our next pastor, the council has requested of the classical committee that Pastor Elect Erik Guichelaar be examined at the meeting of Classis West on October 9 in Loveland, CO. The Lord willing, Pastor Elect Guichelaar will be ordained and installed as Pastor of Randolph PRC, in our sanctuary, during the morning service of October 13. Professor Ron Cammenga will lead us in worship that day and will officiate the installation. Pastor Elect Guichelaar and his wife plan to move to Randolph near the end of September."
