The Shelter RPC in Edmonton has sent out several families to begin a new work in Calgary. The group includes Pastor Daniel Kok and his family. Daniel is "tent making" right now, working for Canada Post. Three other RP families have transferred their membership from other Reformed churches in the area. Worship services are ongoing every Sunday in a rented space. As you can imagine, they have many start up costs. If you would like to contribute to the church planting efforts there, you can do so at the following link.

Pastor Jason Camry writes - Marion continues to see visitors and we have a solid core group of families. Our new location has been a great blessing because of its openness and easy to find placement in our city. We would ask that others pray for our unity and protection of the fellowship, and that God would bless our preaching and evangelism. We have had several people interested in the work and our prayer is that Jesus would add them to our congregation.

Currently there are 10-12 who regularly attend the Las Vegas Fellowship.
“On the fence” are another 8 or so from a local church who come out
occasionally to hear preaching and to attend the midweek fellowship.
Midweek the group is going through the Shorter Catechism and focusing on
discipleship one to another. The love and mutual support of the group is
Live preaching is every other week, while, on the off weeks, Reformed Voice
is utilized in the stated services. The group and the Pacific Coast
Presbytery are thankful for the many men from all over the denomination who
have come to preach at worship services.
Recently a young woman, who is a pharmacist in the area, was doing research on Civil War general D. H. Hill. As an unbeliever she was struck by his firm religious conviction and his unwavering faith all throughout his life of hardship and tragic loss. She obtained a copy of the Westminster Standards for further research and became convinced by the Scripture proofs that what she was reading was the truth. She made contact with the Las Vegas group out of a craving to hear the word of God as well as for fellowship with those who share her beliefs. Thus she became convicted of her sins and converted by the saving power of God’s word. How great is God’s sovereignty that all things be done according to His immutable will and all to His everlasting glory.

Just one year ago, God providentially brought together a group in the Dallas, TX area who were interested in starting an RP Church. That group included newly received minister, Mark Koller, and under his leadership and the oversight of the Stillwater Session they began worship services in May. Since that time, God has added to the group so that they currently have six committed families with a total number of 27 in attendance.
Starting in September, the fellowship found and began renting a Seventh Day Adventist Church school building in Lewisville, TX. This is a suburb of the DFW area located inside the I-35 beltway on the north side of Dallas. It is centrally located to the attending families and provides a pleasant place to worship at a reasonable price, especially for Dallas.
As the work has really blossomed this fall, the Midwest Presbytery has taken the step to establish Dallas as a Mission Church and to begin the process of calling Mark Koller as church planter. He is bi-vocational right now, and looking forward to giving himself full time to the gospel ministry.
You can learn more about them at their web page, facebook page, and sermon audio.
