Contribution of the Program Committee of the Reformed Witness Hour: During the month of February, D.V., Rev. H. Hoeksema hopes to continue his series of radio broadcasts with messages based on the first Epistle of Peter. The messages of Feb. 4 and 11 are entitled, “Born Again” (chapter 1 vss. 22 and 23), in which the truth is proclaimed “that regeneration is in no sense of the word the work of man, but only and absolutely the work of our Sovereign God.” Sunday, Feb. 18, an explanation of I Peter 2:1, 2 will reveal the “Desire for Spiritual Nourishment” of the newborn saints. Then on Feb. 25 the Pastor’s subject will be, “The Excellency of God’s People.” We are indeed happy to report that the Reformed Witness Hour can now also be heard on radio station K.F.M.K., Houston, Texas.
Rev. G. Vanden Berg’s sermon on the last Sunday morning of the old year was based on the injunction, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” This text, found in Acts 20:28, was treated under the theme, “The Office Bearer’s Charge.” May the office bearers in all our churches embrace this injunction with dedicated zeal, because the church has been “purchased with his own blood.”
Jan. 7 found Hull’s pastor, Rev. Kortering, upon Forbes’ pulpit in the morning, and the evening service upon Isabel’s. Jan. 14 he was scheduled to take both services in Isabel, and a Monday evening lecture on, “The End of the World, How and When.” Jan. 22 would see him in Forbes for both services. Meanwhile Hull’s pulpit was supplied with reading in the mornings and Rev. G. VanBaren, Rev. B. Woudenberg and Rev. G. Lubbers each taking an evening service.
Hudsonville’s 1962 Y.P. Convention committees—all nine of them—are already making progress reports.
