Daniel HolstegeThis evening in Calvary PRC (see note below) Rev. Daniel Holstege will be installed as a PRC missionary, called by Doon PRC to serve in the Philippines with Rev. Daniel Kleyn.

The consistory calls the congregation to a special worship service on July 1 for the installation of Rev. D.Holstege as our missionary. Because of space constraints in our building, the service will be held at Calvary PRC, beginning at 7:00pm. The offering that evening will be for the Philippine Book Fund. Rev.Holstege will preach his inaugural sermon during our morning worship service on July 3.

Let us remember this pastor and his family as he takes up this new charge and prepares to take up the labors in that part of the world.

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.
