Signs of the BPRCP
This past Sunday we were in the Berean Protestant Reformed Church. Their services are at 1:00 and 3:30 PM. The two missionaries, Rev. Smit and Rev. Kleyn, usually each preach once on this Sunday. At the moment Rev. Kleyn is working through a series on the 7 letters to the churches in Asia Minor, as recorded in Revelation 2-3.

So that no one gets too hungry, crackers/cookies and coffee are served between services. On special occasions and when visitors are present, we often have a special "merienda" (snack). Then we get to enjoy pansit (a common noodle dish), spaghetti, a cake, and other goodies. This provides a good time for fellowship as well.

Also between services, Rev. Smit teaches a catechism class - the children one week and the young people the next. The Bereans rent one room, so the congregation sits in the back and visits quietly, or else listens in on the class. Or a combination of both.
