Installation Service of Dr. Sacha Walicord

Last night Mary and I had the privilege of attending the installation service of our friend, Dr. Sacha Walicord (back row, far right, with his wife Martina in front of him), as pastor of the United Reformed Church in Walker, Michigan. He came to Walker URC from being a professor at Dort College, Sioux Center, Iowa. Rev. John Vermeer from Doon, Iowa (back row, far left) preached the installation sermon (in front of him is John VanDixhoorn from Iowa, related to Chad VanDixhoorn). John and Stacey VanVoorst (second from left in both rows)—good friends of both the Walicords and us—flew in from South Dakota for the special occasion. (One of our seminary graduates, Rev. Greg Lubbers, gave the personal charge.)

After the service the eight of us enjoyed a few hours of great fellowship in the new home of the Walicords. Pray that God will bless Dr. Walicord’s ministry greatly in the Walker URC flock and beyond.
