The 1966 Protestant Reformed Young People’s Convention will be held in Southeast Church in Grand Rapids, Aug. 19-22, D.V. The theme of the convention is based on the truth as found in II Peter 1:5-8, under the title, “Faith.” This theme will be developed under three sub-titles, “The Seed of Faith.” “The Growth of Faith,” and “The Fruit of Faith.” Young People, plan your vacation so that you can attend this year’s convention so that you may share in the instruction in this profound truth so sadly misinterpreted in the modern church world. Southeast’s Feb. 27th bulletin asked for housing facilities for the out-of-town conventioneers.

This new order was scheduled to begin Feb. 20.

At their last congregational meeting, Hudsonville’s congregation adopted the consistory’s proposal to remodel and redecorate the parsonage. This project is quite an extensive one, with a $3,000 price tag.
