The Contact Committee will be sending Prof. R. Dykstra and Rev. J. Engelsma to Australia to visit the Evangelical Presbyterian Churches on behalf of the PRC. They will be taking part in a two-day Reformation Day conference, attending the meetings of the Presbytery of the EPC, and preaching in the EPC. The 2015 Synod of the PRC approved holding a conference with the EPC on the ground that “such face-to-face meeting and discussions with the men of the EPC are excellent ways both to make the corresponding relationship meaningful and to further the relationship.” Prof. and Mrs. Dykstra leave July 18 and will return after a time in Singapore on August 16. Rev. and Mrs. Engelsma will leave July 24 and return August 7. All this, the Lord willing.

Attention Supporters of Christian Education: Many of you may have recently received the Capital Drive Flyer Building for Generations 2.0. Adams Christian School is committed to providing additional classrooms in the near future due to expanding class sizes. In 2015 we launched a similar Capital Campaign drive. By God’s providential care and your giving, we were able to reach our goal without incurring debt to our school. For that we can be thankful. Adams Christian School is now in need of your financial support for this project. Please prayerfully consider this cause. If you did not receive the flyer, please contact Matt Velthouse (matthew.velthouse@gmail.com), Gary Bylsma (gmb24gk@att.net), Tim Pipe Jr (tpipe23@gmail.com), or Tim Block (tim@mingerink.com) for further information. A sample of the flyer was included in this month’s handouts.
