Quote to Consider:
John Eadie on Colossian 1:19: "... every grace,
as it is needed, and when it is needed, in every variety of ...
operation; every grace, either to nurse the babe or sustain the
perfect man, to excite the new life or to foster it, to give pardon
and the sense of it, faith and the full assurance of it, purity and
the felt possession of it; every blessing, in short, for health or
sickness, for duty or trial, for life or death, for body or soul, for
earth or heaven, for time or eternity, is wrapt up in that fulness
which dwells in Christ."
The Beacon Lights, which contains a good

More chairs (due to the increase in attendance) and
various accessories (e.g., amplifier, carpet to be set out) mean that
it takes longer to prepare the hall on Sunday mornings for our
worship services. Ivan Reid requires help. Volunteers should approach
a member of the Steering Committee.
As a charity, we receive an additional 28% (or so)
on all donations (weekly or one-off) from taxpayers registered as
"Gift Aid." It is very easy to set this up. Please ask Ivan Reid,
our treasurer, about it.
Philip Rainey is organizing a congregational
outing to Rathlin Island on Saturday, 26 June. We plan (DV) to
cross on the 10 AM ferry from Ballycastle, and once on the island walk
3 miles from the harbour to the RSPB Sanctuary at the West Lighthouse.
(If you prefer not to walk, a minibus can take you there.) Group rate
ferry prices are £7.20/adult and £3.60/age 5-18. You should bring a
pack lunch, waterproof jacket, sweater, and walking boots or shoes. A
sign-up sheet for the trip is on the back table today. Philip hopes to
book the ferry this week, so sign up today!

PRC News: Synod meets this week in Hull, Iowa.
The agenda is "comparatively light" this year and there are no
graduating seminary students to examine, so they hope to conclude
synod by the end of this week. Pray that the Lord will give wisdom to
the delegates and bless the decisions which are made. Hudsonville PRC
called Rev. Slopsema (First, MI). Rev. Terpstra (Holland, MI) is
considering the call from Faith PRC. Rev. Haak (Bethel, IL) is
considering the call from the First PRC in Edmonton. Doon PRC’s first
trio is Rev. Bruinsma (Kalamazoo, MI), Rev. Eriks (Loveland, CO), and
