Attendance at Wolf River Presbyterian Church (WRPC) averaged over 50 for the first time in July. Pastor Mark Winder, who has been at WRPC for almost two years, is pleased to see this growth. Collierville is in the Bible belt and every door in town has been knocked on more than once.
Pastor Winder says most of the visitors they see have come as a result of the church’s Internet presence, which includes advertising on Facebook. Other visitors have come after being invited by members.
Work on the building where WRPC worships is progressing. When finished, it will be “humble, but smart” according to Pastor Winder. While several other churches use the space during the week, WRPC will be able to put up pictures and bulletin boards.
Pray that two new families will join the work and that average attendance will be 60 or more by year’s end.
Praise God that one family that had considered moving from the area will be staying.
Pray too that the congregation will continue to develop a Reformed identity.
