Pastor Chuck Muether reports that Hope Reformed Presbyterian Church is well into its new year of education programs. Classes include “Where in Church History is Herman, the Flying Dominie?” (Introduction to Ancient Church History) to new installments of “Hawkeye Presbyterianism” (Presbyterian History in Iowa) to the “Truth Project,” to “Media Madness in the Church” series, and soon more of “Evenings with Uncle John” (Studies on the Institutes). Some of these studies will be uploaded on SermonAudio.com. Hope’s current pulpit ministry includes a series (“The Mystery of the Church) on the Epistle to the Ephesians. Efforts are being made toward adding a second worship service, but until there is a more suitable space for the evening, the Sunday night Bible study will continue in the homes of members. Having just completed a series on hermeneutics, the Sunday evening study is focusing on covenant theology. Hope Reformed Church praises God for the rental space with which it has been blessed for the morning service and gives Him heartfelt gratitude for the grace He has lavished on the congregation. The congregation covets your prayers concerning a few families who are interested in joining but have extensive familial ties with other fellowships. Also pray for a young married couple who just had their first baby. Please pray for a visiting family whose little girl was born with severe complications and has had several surgeries with more to come. This little girl requires around the clock medical attention. Finally, please pray that Hope Church’s unity remains strong and that it remains a courageous and loving servant, submitting to God’s will regarding its ministry in South-central Iowa.
