Pastor Brandon (Laurie) Wilkins reports that the Lord has recently brought more visitors and new contacts in the community. This has been an encouragement to the congregation of Christ Covenant OPC as they have often gone through ‘dry spells.’ Pray that more new visitors will attend worship and desire to join. Two recent outreach events brought new contacts. In August, the congregation had an exhibit at the McHenry County Fair. Fairgoers were asked if they would like to take a survey about Christianity. Many took this survey, which produced quite a few discussions about Christianity and the Gospel. At the end of September, Christ Covenant hosted a concert by Matthew Smith of Indelible Grace. The Gospel was clearly presented by word and song, and the event brought many new faces to Christ Covenant’s building. Pray for more opportunities and gentle boldness to spread the Gospel in McHenry County. Pray too for continued spiritual growth both in individuals and the congregation as a whole.
