Grace OPC was without a pastor for two years following Pastor Terry Thole’s retirement. The congregation continued to gather for worship, most often watching recorded sermons due to a lack of pulpit supply. Praise the Lord that a new organizing pastor, Greg Hoadley, arrived two weeks ago. The California native is excited to begin working with the group of five families. Several people began attending worship shortly before the Hoadleys arrived. Pray that the group will continue to grow together. There are about 225,000 people in the greater Fargo area, and thanks to an oil and gas boom, the population is growing. Pray that the Word of God will be faithfully preached and that people will have invite friends and acquaintances to worship the Lord with them.
