We rejoice with the members of the Protestant Reformed Church of Norristown, Pennsylvania; with the missionary, the Rev. K. Hanko (now pastor of the congregation); and with the calling church in Wyckoff, New Jersey at the recent organization of the Norristown church. The institution of a church that is founded on the Reformed creeds and that proclaims the gospel of God’s sovereign grace in Christ Jesus is always the cause of great joy to all who love Christ’s Name. It ought to be of special interest to the Protestant Reformed denomination that a second church is now established in the East, this one in the greater metropolitan area of a large city, Philadelphia, where the Protestant Reformed witness has been slight, or non-existent in the past.

An account of the organization of the congregation, with accompanying pictures, appears elsewhere in this issue.

Welcome, Norristown, to the fellowship of Protestant Reformed churches! May the Head of the church bless you in this fellowship, enrich us by your presence among us, and give you a powerful witness in that area of our country.

Those who might wish to communicate with the church can do so by writing its clerk, Mr. Richard D. Martin, 1304-4 Cynwyd Apts., Wilmington, DE 19808.
