Pastor Jonathan (Lauryn) Shishko is preparing a leadership class open to all men in the congregation. Pray that a culture of conversation will abound in this class. More intensive officer training will follow for the seven men who have been nominated to serve as deacons. Members of Reformation Presbyterian Church recently volunteered at the Bowery Mission serving about 300 homeless people. Pray for wisdom as the congregation seeks more ways to minister to their neighbors through the mission. Pastor Shishko has been invited to give a brief message on the birth of Jesus Christ at a banquet for current and former clients of the Boro Pregnancy Counseling Center. Pray that this message will fall on fertile hearts. Praise God that churches no longer seem to be in immanent danger of eviction from public schools in New York City. Pray, though, for a facility that will offer Reformation the ability to hold events other than Sunday morning worship. Attendance is in the sixties, including about 20 regular visitors who are considering joining the congregation.
