News From Our Churches

Our church at Pella, Iowa, has had the services of Rev. D. Kuiper for six weeks, and he was followed by Rev. D. Engelsma for his six-week stint. These men are kept busy, preaching, teaching and lecturing. Rev. Kuiper’s lectures were on, “Holding to the Truth,” and, “The Nearness of the End”. Rev. Kuiper spoke highly of the lively interest of the children and young people in the catechism classes. The little flock in Pella now numbers twenty-six souls.

I have been invited here tonight to speak about education, about school, a topic which, I am sure, is very dear to your hearts. I say this of course with tongue in cheek. From my experience with many of you, I know that if you are going to complain about something, one of those “somethings” will inevitably be school.
