Pastor Jim Hoekstra and the congregation of Mercy OPC give thanks that the Lord has brought thirteen first-time visitors in the last three months. This is more than they usually get in a year. Five of the visitors have returned. Please pray that more people would visit and become regular attenders. Mercy OPC ran its second VBS and, although the numbers were small, the children benefited greatly. A redesign of the church website is underway. Efforts to make use of social media to connect with new people are in their initial stages. Please pray for the two men beginning officer training. Eight children from the congregation are memorizing the Shorter Catechism. Be in prayer for a restructuring of the children’s Sunday school classes. Give thanks to the Lord for an amazing year of financial stewardship.
