Reno, Nevada is home to one of the newest Reformed Presbyterian congregations in North America. On August 22nd, the “Reno Commission” of the Pacific Coast Presbytery (RPCNA) organised a small group into a mission church. This past weekend the congregation was able to call their first Pastor:
“We spent the weekend with the temporary governing body over our church, along with their wonderful families for some very rich fellowship! We are thankful they were able to travel up to our area from theirs. On Saturday the women went out to dinner together while the men visited in the Samul home with all the children.”
“Sunday morning was full of singing and fellowship, and delicious breakfast in the Cunningham’s home. Sunday evening, we were able to partake in the Lord’s Supper after Rev. Ketcham delivered a message, we gained two new adherents, and held a congregational meeting.
Our congregational meeting was held for the purpose of voting to call Colin Samul (pictured above) as the pastor of our little church. The vote was unanimous, with all voting in favor of calling him! We are rejoicing for our small, but cherished church, in that the Lord has provided for us so swiftly over the course of the last year in answering our prayers regarding the planting of a new church in the area, and bringing forth someone able and willing to serve here.
Pray for our church in the coming months, for Mr. Samul’s upcoming ordination exams in Squamish, British Columbia, and then his impending ordination at the church, a date to be determined shortly.”
