From a January bulletin from Doon we learn that Rev. Kortering and Rev. Moore conducted church visitation, during the week of January 28th, in Lynden, Redlands, and Loveland. “In order to make this trip more profitable for our churches,” the announcement continued “(the two ministers) will preach or lecture in each place. Rev. Moore will preach in Lynden and lecture in Redlands, and Rev. Kortering will lecture in Loveland.” From the January 28 bulletin of our Redlands congregation, we learn that the topic of Rev.

From our South Holland church we have received an interesting news item which we should pass along through this column. The church extension committee has completed arrangements to make a broadcast of one of the church services over WLNR-FM. This is a Lansing, Illinois, station which, because of its location in the Chicago area, can reach a listening audience numbering, likely, in the millions. The broadcast will not be live, but will be made, rather, from a taped recording of a church service (the Scripture reading and sermon).

We have an abundance of news again—more than we can handle, in fact. That’s due partly to the fact that theStandard Bearer appears less often during the summer months, and partly to the regularity with which most of our church supply this writer with Sunday bulletins. This month, in addition to the “regulars,” we’ve also received bulletins from one of our churches from whom we haven’t heard for about a year, and from another whose bulletin we have never before seen.

A couple of news items of current interest will probably still fit on this page, along with the Classis Report. For the first, I’ll quote a paragraph from our newly organized church in Jenison, Michigan.  “At the Congregational Meeting held March 29. ‘Faith’ was selected as the name for our church. The pastoral call was extended to Rev. D. Engelsma and a budget of $10.00 for the General Fund and $2.00 for the Building Fund was adopted.”

May we remind you, again, of Hope School’s celebration of its 25th anniversary? For a quarter of a century, the dedicated boards and teachers at Hope have been providing distinctive instruction for our covenant children. The teachers and board members of the past twenty-five years certainly deserve a word of commendation. More important, of course, is the fact that the continued existence and growth of the school has been possible only through the blessing of God on the efforts expended there.

Because of the Classes Reports in the last two issues of the Standard Bearer, a considerable amount of news for this column has been accumulating—so much so, in fact, that I hardly know where to begin. The flurry of news concerning current mission efforts of our churches is certainly of special interest at this time, so perhaps I should begin with that, and see what space yet remains for other items.

At a congregational meeting held at Hope Church (Grand Rapids), on April 26, the decision was made to extend a call to Rev: Engelsma. He was elected from a trio which included also the Reverends J. Heys and G. Lanting.  Rev. B. Woudenberg has asked for, and been granted, an extension for his consideration of the call to serve as home missionary. We can now expect his response three weeks after the conclusion of this year’s gathering of Synod.
