What would you do if you were sitting in church some Sunday morning and a group of thugs entered the church and opened fire using semi-automatic weapons and hand grenades?
On July 25, 1993 just such an event happened in Cape Town, South Africa. This tragic event has become known as the Saint James Church Massacre. Fortunately, one man in the congregation was armed. His name is Charl van Wyk.
Van Wyk returned fire with his .38 Special (not exactly the preferred weapon for such an event) wounding one of the attackers and no doubt saved many lives in the process. This is an excellent example of how one armed citizen can make the difference between life and death!
Find out what happened when van Wyk payed a visit to one of his attackers while in prison!
We are pleased to have Mr. van Wyk present at our November 15th lecture!

Join us for an Old Fashioned Election Day Sermon!
In times past, our nation's Pastors routinely preached "election day sermons". On these days, pastors preached the principles of Biblical government to the voters, so that they could judge the candidates, and to the candidates and officials so that they would understand their responsibilities in governing.
Considering the direction of our nation and our government, we at the Independence Reformed Bible Church believe that it would be good to return to this custom. We invite you to join us on Sunday November 6th, when Pastor Joel Saint will preach an election day sermon you don't want to miss!
Sunday, November 6th
Service (and sermon) time is 9:00 AM, followed by Sunday School.
