On 10 June 2018, the Van Dyk Park congregation, Ekurhuleni East District shared in the joy of the 50th wedding anniversary blessing of the retired Priest T Loots and his wife.
The District Rector Helper A Wehmeyer served the congregation and used Psalm 100:2 as the Bible word for the Divine Service. The female choir opened the way for the Word with the Afrikaans Hymn, "Laat ons eerder opkyk na die lig".
DRH Wehmeyer shared special thoughts with the couple and reminded them not just of how thankful they as a couple can be for being 50 years together, but also the congregation to have these pioneers setting the example of how God should always be the centre of one’s life, one’s marriage and one’s family. The choir concluded with the requested hymn by the "young" couple, “The Lord is my light”.
