PRC Congregational News, Sept.18, 2016 (Updated re Call to the Philippines)

HuizingaBrianOn Sunday, Sept.18, 2016, Rev. Brian Huizinga (Hope PRC, Redlands, CA) announced his decline of the call First PRC (Holland, MI) extended to him on August 28.

May the Lord assure this congregation of His knowledge of her need for another undershepherd and of His care for her while she waits for a pastor.

 

RMiersmaFrom Hull PRC's bulletin we find this significant notice concerning one of the PRC's emeritus ministers:

With thanksgiving to the Lord of the harvest, we remind our fellow saints of the 45th  anniversary of the ordination and installation into the ministry of Rev. Rodney G. Miersma [September, 1971]. He and his wife, Sharon, have faithfully served our churches in Isabel, SD; Pella, IA; Holland, MI; Wellington, NZ; Lacombe, AB; foreign missionary to Ghana; and Loveland, CO. Our emeritus minister continues to serve our churches in northwest Iowa. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. (Ezekiel 33:7)

And, finally, this reminder of the upcoming mission call to the Philippines from Doon PRC:

The Council of Doon PRC announces a trio for calling a third missionary to the Philippines. It consists of Revs. A. Brummel (Heritage PRC, Sioux Falls, SD), N. Decker (Trinity PRC - Hudsonville, MI), and R. Kleyn (Covenant of Grace PRC - Spokane, WA).  The congregation plans to call on Monday, Sept 19.

NathanDeckerAt her congregational meeting Monday night, Sept.19, 2016, Doon PRC voted to call Rev. Nathan Decker of Trinity PRC (Hudsonville, MI) to serve as third missionary to the Philippines. Let us remember this pastor and his family in our prayers as he considers this call.

Keeping the Sword Drawn - Public Lecture at Grace Community Church (Hudsonville, MI), Sept.30, 2016

The following public announcement is sponsored by the Southwest PRC’s Evangelism Committee:

The true church is under vicious assault in these last days. Satan, having great wrath because he knows his time is short, is determined to destroy the divine truth that the church loves, believes, confesses and lives. False teachers with their damnable heresies are on every side. Pressures to sell the truth for the sake of unholy alliances mount. Iniquity of the vilest sort is sanctioned and celebrated in society. What shall the church do as she awaits the triumphant return of her head Christ Jesus? 

We are planning a lecture by Rev. Brian Huizinga titled Keeping the Sword Drawn: Our Calling as the Church of the Militant Christ to be held at Grace Community Church in Hudsonville, MI on Friday September 30 at 7:30PM.  This lecture will address these issues,  demonstrating the church’s urgent calling to take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and keep it drawn.  We will also live stream this event.

Below is the flyer for the event SW PRC EC has provided (also attached as a pdf):
