Several people are preparing to begin a membership class at the end of the month. As the weather turns cooler, the congregation’s weekly Bible study and women’s Bible study have resumed. The Hoekstras recently held a cookout in their neighborhood where two neighbors, including an unbeliever, expressed interest in attending the women’s study. Pray that these contacts will bear fruit. Pastor Hoekstra reports that the overseeing session from Hammond, Wisconsin is a blessing and that regular family visitation has begun. Pray that this shepherding will be a blessing to the congregation. Pastor Hoekstra is on a week-long study leave. Pray that this leave will bear fruit in his preaching. Pray for wisdom as plans are made to consider adding a Sunday school program.
