Christ Covenant has seen new members brought into the core group, and an infant was recently baptized. The congregation has started a ministry to people who have recently moved to Crystal Lake, giving a welcome bag that has a Gospel tract, New Testament, church brochure, and other church information. Several shops and service providers in town sponsor the bags. This has opened doors not only with new residents, but also with the shop owners in town. Pray that these new contacts will become new visitors at worship, and that these outreach opportunities will become open doors for the advance of the gospel in Crystal Lake.
