Free Reformed Theological Education Committee: Recently the committee decided to recommend that Synod 2012 accept brother Clarence Veld as a student for the ministry. He has had no peace with this decision and has withdrawn his application. With regret, the committee assents to his withdrawal and commends him and his family to the Lord.

~ From The Consistory ~

Visitors, welcome. We hope you are blessed through worshiping with us this Resurrection Sunday. Today, Rev. Maurice Roberts of the Free Church of Scotland (continuing) will conduct our morning service and Dr. A. Miskin will conduct our evening service. Next Sunday, Dr. David Murray will preach for our worship services.

The Sunday School/catechism classes (Beginners 7 grade) are asked to meet upstairs today. Parents and grandparents are welcome to join us for our last combined opening of the season. The Psalter of the month is #302: 1, 4. Please review with your children. The Free Reformed Mission Committee asks that you seriously consider giving to the 1st collection for the Guatemala Mission Fund today. The amount of giving has decreased in the last two years, leaving us with a shortfall. May the Lord continue to bless our labors in Guatemala.
