Report of the ARP General Synod, Day One

The 2011 meeting of the General Synod of the ARP Church opened with a worship service on Tuesday evening.

Rev. Dr. John R. DeWitt preached a stirring sermon on 2 Timothy 2:1-11, focusing on a section of verse 9 — “The word of God is not chained.” And this year Dr. DeWitt also administered the Lord’s Supper (a welcome change from last year).

There will be some important business which takes place over the next couple of days, and so your prayers for this meeting are very much welcomed.
