Our Loveland congregation called Rev. C. Hanko from a trio which included the Revs. J.A. Heys and B. Woudenberg.
Isabel-Forbes called Rev. R.C. Harbach from a trio which included the Revs. M. Schipper and B. Woudenberg.
Rev. M. Schipper declined the call which came to him from our Doon congregation; their new trio includes: Revs. G. Lanting, G. Vandenberg, H. Veldman.
Southeast’s pastor has forsaken his congregation after having publicly renounced his stand concerning the error of Common Grace, and has been declared eligible for call in the Chr. Ref. Church. This defection adds another of our congregations to the list of vacant churches.
Rev. G. VanBaren’s new address is: 233 Second St., Randolph, Wisconsin.
The Lord willing, Rev. H. Hanko, pastor of the Hope Protestant Ref. Church will be the radio speaker for the Reformed Witness Hour during the month of August. Rev. Hanko has taken as subjects of his four radio broadcasts the following: Aug. 5—”The Certainty of Prayer’s Answer”; Aug. 12—”In What Life Consists”; Aug. 19—”The Sovereign Purpose of God’s Forbearance”; Aug. 26—”The Seeking Shepherd.” Printed copies of the radio messages may be obtained by writing to The Reformed Witness Hour, P.O. Box 8, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Friday evening, July 20, was the scheduled date of Rev. G. VanBaren’s installation as pastor of the flock at Randolph, Wisconsin. Probably only a church which has experienced such a long period of vacancy can appreciate Randolph’s joy at that occasion.
. . . . see you in church.
