Each year, on or near Reformation Day, October 31st, PPRC hosts a lecture on a topic pertaining to the Protestant Reformation.  Presented by our Pastor, Reverend Wilbur Bruinsma,  this lecture illuminates the history of the great Reformation.  A question and answer session follows.  The public is invited to this event and refreshments are served afterward.

On October 27, 2017, our 20th annual Reformation Day lecture took place with Reverend Wilbur Bruinsma speaking on Reformer John Huss (1369 - 1415).
