Summer is in its final days as RPTS students return from their summer adventures. Our students have had an opportunity to minister to the church around the world or refresh themselves in their home churches. Many have done internships and traveled to Scotland, Asia, Kansas, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Colorado, to name a few places. Students return to additional facility renovations and a new professor of Church History. It will be an exciting fall quarter!

Recently several rooms in Rutherford Hall, the Seminary’s main building, have undergone restorative work. Carpets were lifted in the President’s Office and the room formerly known as the Periodical Room. The original wooden floors, which are primarily quarter sawn white oak, were then sanded and stained. Made possible by special gifts from several donors, RPTS is seeking to restore a few rooms to their original appearance. Lord willing, the installation of period appropriate lighting and a few pieces of furniture will complete the project. The Seminary Administration is also considering what to name these newly renovated rooms, perhaps in a theme of historic Reformers.

Work has continued outside with a Gable refurbished this spring. The basement ceiling was exposed to enable the engineers to better plan for final remodeling next summer, Lord willing.

Please keep our students, faculty, and staff in prayer as they shift from summer activities to the rigors of the school year which began on September 9th.
