The consistory has considered our need for a new pastor for several months. We have been looking to the Lord for guidance and considering several options. Now, we are happy to report that the consistory is unanimous in our desire to send a pastoral call to Rev. J. TH. Pronk of Sirjansland, The Netherlands to labor among us. We had several opportunities to speak with him when he was here on his visit and he has satisfactorily answered several of our questions in writing since he returned to the Netherlands. The consistory will ask the congregation to vote on this pastoral call at a congregational meeting to be held on Monday, December 9 at 7:30 pm. A 75% majority vote will be needed to send the call.“Behold, as the eyes of servants, look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.” Psalm 123:2
We plan to have an evening of Christmas carol singing on December 23. We will begin at church with a pizza supper at 5 pm. We will sing at Hope Network (Leonard Street) at 6:00 pm. We will sing in the church neighborhood at 7:30 pm. We would like to hand out packages with Bibles to the neighborhood residents. Please help us by contributing packaged treats like nuts and snacks that we can include in the packages. There is a table in the basement for the treats.
