Providence OPC gives thanks for the faithful prayers and giving of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Pastor John Hilbelink urges us to give thanks for officers and members who love the Lord and the Reformed faith. They have been blessed with visitors from the Rockford area who have continued to worship with them. Some have come because they were moved by the joy evidenced in the personal witness of members of the Providence congregation. Rejoice with them over the return and good report of one of their members from Team One of the Japan Short Term Mission trip. The church has also been blessed with the attendance of a member of Gospel Life OPC in Chicago, who has been in Rockford for six weeks this summer as part of her studies toward an advanced degree in pharmacology. She has been active in inviting her colleagues to church events. Give thanks for the baptisms of two infants. Pray for the officers’ training course that started this summer. And, pray that the Lord will bless the preaching of the gospel to Providence Church and to the visitors who attend.
