Providence OPC recently lost a sealed bid auction for a building that would have been ideal for them. Pray that the Lord will provide a more permanent and suitable building in this town of 6,000. Pray too that the congregation will not be discouraged in the coming months when summer residents and vacationers leave and attendance thins. Pray that God will bless follow-up efforts with contacts from summer outreach events including a booth at the county fair, door-to-door evangelism, and a car wash done by visiting young people from Grand Rapids. A Wednesday evening Bible study began earlier this fall. Pray for good attendance at this outreach-oriented study and for increasing zeal among the members for fellowship and outreach. Pray too that the Lord will raise up leaders in the congregation. There is currently one ruling elder serving with Pastor Markus (Sharon) Jeromin.
