We rejoice with Aaron and Kristen De Jong who were blessed on Thursday with the birth of a baby boy, Darren Luke. Kristen and Darren are both doing well, but Darren needs about 5-7 days of antibiotics. He is currently at Avera McKennan Hospital. They expect he will likely come home early this week. We thank God for the wonderful gift of another covenant child.

The new RFPA book, The Reformed Baptism Form by Dr. Bastiaan Wielenga has been placed in the fellowship hall. Wielenga was a prominent minister in the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands (GKN), a son of the Afscheiding and a student of Herman Bavinck. This commentary was originally published in Dutch in 1906 and is now translated for the first time into the English language. Professor David Engelsma, editor of the book, writes: “The great worth of this book is that it is the translation into English of a thorough, penetrating, sound commentary on the historic, inestimably rich Reformed baptism form.” The faith of every believer concerning the sacrament of baptism will be expanded and enriched by this commentary.
