On Tuesday, June 12, 2018 the second PRCP Classis meeting of the year (there are 3 total) was hosted by the Berean PRC and held in Provident Christian Church in Marikina.
Rev. Flores, the previous chairman, leads the Classis in opening devotions.
The work of the Classis is summarized as follows:
The Classis of the PRCP met this past Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Rev. Ibe chaired the meeting. Among other things, Classis treated matters concerning finances, pre-seminary Greek (approving some preparations), theological training (approving constitutions), contact with other churches, budget for a missionary who might be called to labor in the PRFA in Leyte (recommitted), and translation work. A significant decision of Classis was to start working toward establishing a sister church relationship with the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church in Singapore. The Classis expressed its thanks to Provident for the use of their building. The next meeting of Classis is scheduled for October 31, to be hosted by and held in the Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela, the Lord willing.

Those who are observant will realize there are two pastors missing from this meeting.
The reason for this is shown in the following pictures.
Missionary, Rev. Holstege, who is on a 6 week furlough in the USA,
addresses the synod of the PRCA.
Rev. Trinidad, pastor of Maranatha PRCP, was delegated by the PRCP Classis to the Synod of the PRCA and traveled with the Holsteges to the USA. He is in the States for about 11 days and will arrive back in the Philippines this week, Lord willing. He also had opportunity to address the Synod on behalf of the PRCP.
We are thankful to the Lord for unity of truth and life between the PRCA and the PRCP, expressed in the newly established sister church relationship between these two denominations.
And now a couple of lighter hearted pictures...
Kirsten and Kiley went on a trike ride with Rev. Kleyn one day.
Not near as cute as the two people in the previous picture,
but it's the best we can do! :-)
