CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION
Craig Van Briesen is asked to write to Gary Brummel and Bart Zandstra to Derick Grimm.
Catherine Kooiker came home from the hospital on Thursday. Margaret Hoekstra fell a little over a week ago and broke her hip. She had a partial hip replacement surgery on Thursday at Mercy Hospital in Sioux City which went well. Let us remember these saints and their families in our prayers. But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. (Psalm 59:16)
We express our congratulations to Cora Van Den Top who celebrated her 90th birthday on October 21. We thank God for her and for the many years that the Lord has given to her. May He continue to uphold her and Minard in the days ahead.

Were the reformers active in mission work? How did the doctrine of the Reformation affect their zeal for missions? What principles can we learn to guide our work? To what countries did they send missionaries? For the answers to these and other significant questions, join us for the annual fall lecture sponsored by the Reformed Witness Committee to be held on Friday, November 4, at 7:00 p.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium of Dordt College. Rev. Allen Brummel will speak on the topic “The Reformation’s Zeal for Missions.”
How does I Timothy 3:15-16 clearly identify true churches of God, so that no one will have an excuse for not belonging to such churches? How do the letters to the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 plainly warn Christians today of the real possibility that churches that once were sound and true have forsaken the truth and life of Christ and become false churches? Must every professing Christian, including Protestant Reformed Christians, be vigilant concerning the doctrinal faithfulness of his congregation and denomination? These and other questions related to church membership will be answered from scripture and the Reformed creeds by a public lecture in Hope Protestant Reformed Church (Walker, MI) on Friday, November 11, at 7:30 p.m. The speaker will be Prof. David J. Engelsma, retired professor of theology at the Protestant Reformed seminary. The lecture is sponsored by the Reformed Witness Committee of Hope church in celebration of Reformation Day. After the speech the speaker will answer questions from the audience. If you are unable to attend, listen online at sermonaudio.com/hopeprc. Refreshments will be served following the lecture.
