News From Our Churches

Rev. G. VanBaren has received a call from our church at Hull, Iowa. The trio included the Revs. R.C. Harbach and B. Woudenberg.

Rev. J. Kortering, of Hope Church, lectured to a large and attentive audience in First Church of Grand Rapids on Thursday, Jan. 23. The topic, “The Mystery of Lawlessness” as depicted in II Thess. 2:7, was masterfully evaluated with copious quotations from Holy Writ to authenticate his interpretation of that horrible threat to our young people and children who may be living in the last days. The speaker maintained that lawlessness is principally rebellion against God’s authority; is found in children, parents, rulers, judges, kings and principalities. Further, that this spirit develops in history, climaxing in the AntiChrist who will attempt to destroy the church but will only serve to prepare her for her place in glory. The audience left with these comforting words, “Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and stablish you in every good word and work”. II Thess. 2:16, 17

A belated “Season’s Greetings” is extended to all our people from Rev. C.J. Elliott and his group of churches in Jamaica. His letter closed with, “May the peace of our Covenant God that passeth all understanding ever keep our hearts and minds perfect in His Will till He comes.”

The Northwest P.R. School Society is advertising their need for a Kindergarten teacher. Any takers?
