Announcements (subject to God’s will):

We welcome Anganeta Dyck back into our midst until 24 September.

A new RFPA book by Prof. Engelsma, The Reformed Faith of John Calvin: A Summary of the Institutes, is on the back table for book club members at a reduced price. Non book club members may purchase the book for £18.

Midweek Bible study starts this week Wednesday at 7:45 PM at the manse. We continue last year’s study of I Peter by looking at 3:1-6, an admonition to Christian wives. Copies of the RFPA I Peter study guide are £3.50 (£3 for book club members). This helps you prepare, but we will not be using it specifically.

The Reformed Witness Hour next Lord’s Day (8:30-9:00 AM, on Gospel 846MW), is entitled "Preservation of the Saints" (John 17:11-12).

Next Lord’s Day evening, 20 September, we will have preparatory with a view to partaking of the Lord’s Supper on 27 September.

Catechism classes start Monday, 21 September. Rev. Stewart will be arranging times and passing out materials today.

The Stewarts trip to the US went very well. Many people sent their greetings to the saints in the CPRC, so many that we cannot list them all.

PRC News: Immanuel PRC (Lacombe, Canada) called Rev. Tom Miersma. Trinity PRC (Hudsonville, MI) will call from a trio of Revs. Koole (Grandville, MI), Marcus (Edmonton, Canada) and Slopsema (First, MI).

Dear fellow saints,

We arrived home on Tuesday afternoon as scheduled. We have fond memories of our stay there. We thank you for your kind welcome, hospitality, and gifts. We thank also the Stewarts for the use of their car (though they should be aware that it does not float) and their home while we were there.

May you continue to be a witness to the truths of God’s Word in your area and across even the whole world. Our prayers will be with you and for you in the blessed work done there in the congregation and through Europe.

In His love and service, the VanBarens
