Quote to Consider:

J. C. Ryle on John 15:15: "This is indeed a glorious privilege. To know Christ, serve Christ, follow Christ, obey Christ, work in Christ’s vineyard, fight Christ’s battles, all this is no small matter. But for sinful men and women like ourselves to be called ‘friends of Christ,’ is something that our weak minds can hardly grasp and take in. The King of kings and Lords of lords not only pities and saves all them that believe in Him, but actually calls them His ‘friends.’"

Announcements (subject to God’s will):

Two issues of the Standard Bearer are available on the back table.

Family visitation starts tomorrow night. The schedule is on the back of the bulletin. We hope you can make the times and dates work as much as possible, for changes will affect the other individuals or families being visited that night and the two council members doing the visiting.

Because Rev. Daniel Kleyn accepted the call to be a missionary in the Philippines, Martyn McGeown will be doing his internship at Southwest PRC with Rev. den Hartog.

Francesco’s new phone number is 25 631542.

A new CPRC YouTube site is now on-line. Our thanks to Bill Whyte for all his time and work in setting it up.
