As the school year starts again, so do catechism classes at Providence OPC. Pastor John Hilbelink reports that officer-training classes were recently completed. Pray that God will bless those who participated in the class and raise up officers to lead his church in Rockford. Praise God that two covenant children were recently baptized, and one person was received on reaffirmation of faith. Give thanks for visitors who continue to come to worship, including some who attend regularly. Pray that God will bless activities such as the women’s Bible study as they begin again after a summer break. Pray, too, that the congregation will be a blessing as it continues to minister to a man who is in prison.
