Mission Activities 


Worship services for the newly organized Heritage PR Fellowship of Sioux Falls, S.D. were held for the first time on Sunday, January 28. These worship services are under the sponsorship of our denomination’s Domestic Mission Committee and will be under the supervision of the Edgerton, MN PRC.

Sunday morning Rev. R. Kleyn, pastor of the Trinity PRC in Hudsonville, MI, led the first service, preaching on I Thessalonians 1:5-10, “Sounding Out the Word,” emphasizing that for local evangelism to be effective we need faithful preaching and then active witnessing. Paul preached, and the saints in Thessalonica “sounded out” or “echoed” what he preached by what they said and how they lived.

Sunday evening Rev. D. Overway, pastor of the Doon, IA PRC, preached for the Fellowship on the promise of Christ in Matthew 28: “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world,” emphasizing that in the work of missions, Christ goes with us.

As you can imagine, January 28 was a very exciting day for the 25-plus members of the Fellowship. They have great hopes and have been very busy putting things in place for the worship services to begin and for the Spronks to have a place to live.

The Fellowship’s worship services are held each Lord’s Day at 9:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. in the Ambassador Conference Room of the Holiday Inn at 8th and Main in downtown Sioux Falls. Our denomination’s DMC has rented a home at 4402 E. 3rd St. in Sioux Falls for Candidate Spronk and his family. The goal of the DMC is to have a work established enough that by the time synod meets this June they can recommend calling a full-time missionary to work in Sioux Falls. Continue to pray for Candidate Spronk and the Fellowship that our heavenly Father may continue to bless and prosper the work there according to His will.

On January 26 Rev. G. Eriks, representing the Contact Committee of our churches, and Rev. R. VanOverloop, representing our Domestic Mission Committee, traveled to Northern Ireland to visit with the members of the Covenant PRC in Ballymena, NI; their pastor, Rev. A. Stewart; and their Council. The weeklong visit gave the men opportunity to conduct church visitation, as well as fulfill a mandate of Synod 2006 to investigate the possibility of further mission work by our churches in the British Isles, along with the possibility of establishing a sister-church relationship with the PRCA. Tuesday evening, January 30, Rev. Eriks spoke in Limerick, in the Republic of Ireland, on “Antithetical Living in an Age of Covetousness,” and on Wednesday Rev. VanOverloop led a mid-week Bible study at the manse. On Friday the emissaries were able to enjoy a congregational dinner at the Leighinmohr Hotel in Ballymena, followed by a night of Go-Karting at Raceview Karting Saturday evening.

A word of thanks was extended to the members of the Southwest PRC in Grandville, MI who volunteered a week of hard labor at the newly acquired church building of our Pittsburgh Mission in late January. These volunteers were able not only to build two rooms in the church basement, but also to do major repair work to electrical and plumbing systems of the church and to paint several walls. This has saved the Pittsburgh Fellowship much time and expense in their building project.


Congregation Activities 


The Council of the Georgetown PRC in Hudsonville, MI recently placed, in the mailbox of each of their members, a survey concerning the building of a Youth Building, to help determine the overall interest of the congregation in such a project.

Georgetown’s Consistory also recently adopted a new policy of welcoming new members into their congregation. On the Sunday morning in which the new members’ membership is announced, they will be asked to follow the pastor out of the sanctuary at the conclusion of the service and stand next to him to receive the congregation’s greetings. The elders believe this will help the congregation become acquainted with the new members, and the new members to meet the congregation.

A special combined congregational meeting/grade school association meeting was held January 16 at the South Holland, IL PRC. At this meeting both the South Holland congregation and South Holland school association voted overwhelmingly to approve proposals from their Council and School Board to proceed with the sale of their church and parsonage and grade school to the Power and Light Evangelistic Church of Roseland, IL.

Young People’s Activities


The Young People of the Wingham, Ontario PRC were invited by their pastor, Rev. M. DeVries, to meet at the parsonage recently for a special discussion on the topic of “War and Loving One’s Enemy.”

The Federation Board of the Young People’s societies sponsored a PRYP Convention Basketball Night Saturday, January 20 at Covenant Christian High School in Grand Rapids, MI. At 4:00 P.M. the Junior Varsity basketball team of Covenant played the basketball team from Heritage Christian High School in South Holland, IL, followed by a game of alumni players from Covenant teams of the past.

Minister Activities

Rev. Allen and Crysta Brummel, of the South Holland, IL PRC, were blessed with a daughter, Joanna Mae, Saturday, January 6. Joanna was 4 pounds, 9 ounces at birth and was 7 weeks early. She was hospitalized for a time, in NICU, but is making steady progress, for which we are thankful to God.

Rev. Dick has declined the call he received from Doon to become missionary to the Philippines.
